Derek Webb, one of the founders of NoiseTrade (complete disclosure, I do artist relations for NoiseTrade) recently posted a pretty insightful perspective on how best to go about marketing your music as an artists.
I urge you to spend a moment with it, you can do so here.
In it he touches on the balance between the desires of being an artist as it relates to today’s modern music industry.
Would love the hear your thoughts and perspectives on this as music marketers.
Do you believe in the power of sharing (or giving away) music in exchange for the opportunity to cultivate a longer relationship?
Or is the need to continue to monetize in the moment more important to you.
