Creativity has never been everybodyâ€˜s cup of tea and so has been establishing in the art industry. It always required a thick mantle to survive and the music industry is no exception. The best survival trick is to be able to deal properly with the disappointments, take lessons and keep moving in order to achieve your goal, without getting swayed away.
Few of the issues and concerns in the music industry are as follows:
Demo disappointment Itâ€˜s, indeed, one of the most common problem with every second struggler in the music industry. So what do you do when you just donâ€˜t get any response on your demo? You might choose to get frustrated on realizing that there is no one interested in your stuff or your demo is not at all worthy enough. Or you might decide to take a positive approach and believe that it takes time to get the right sample to the right person for independent artist. A more pragmatic approach would be to figure out petty tribulations that might be there in your demo and make conscious efforts to put them right. There is a lot of information and guideline available on the net on how to improve you demo. The other activities advised to handle such a situation are:
Ã¢â‚¬¢ Continue playing shows so that your profile keeps building up continuously.
Ã¢â‚¬¢ Aggressively pursue the press coverage of your shows.
Ã¢â‚¬¢ Stay updated on your internet marketing tools like your blog, MySpace etc.
Ã¢â‚¬¢ Maintain upgraded information in your promotion package about your latest activities.
Non-availability of Distribution after reaching the stage when you decide to release your own record, getting distributors for your first release becomes the biggest problem, given, the fact that every distributor eyes on established brands and labels which can pull huge loads of advertisement money at their offices. The solution is simply to take care of a few things in your record which can help make the distributor(s) believe that the stuff is going to work in the market:
You should show up a decent list of releases of different independent artist so that the risk gets shared evenly.
A proposal having a schedule of your future releases to assure the distributors that you plan to stay, at least, for a while.
Catch hold of a distributor who keeps, in general, all labels so that the supply (when your music is in demand) is easily met with.
Do efforts by promoting your music not only through the press but also by visiting music stores etc.
These steps can, in principle, improve the market status of your music and provide you the leverage that you have been striving for quiet long.
