This is the plan for you if your goal is to start a career in the music industry with the intention of attracting a potential investor or a record deal with a major or independent record label.
The goal is to increase your fan base in the marketplace by building awareness through performances, social media acceptance, video views, radio spins, blogs, marketing, and promotions both in the real world and online.
The benefit of this plan is that it offers you direction to increase success in the music industry without losing money or wasting time. It will take more work and time to build your career but it will do so without spending a large amount of money. The music industry is an expensive industry, and many artists miss their chance to succeed because they don't know how to get noticed, who to turn to for help, or they have too small of a buzz (or no buzz). It's not their fault--the music industry doesn't share accurate information readily, and because there are so many inept and unsavory people eager to separate people from their money, it makes it difficult to succeed. We help build the basic foundation for a successful career for the artist by shortening your learning curve and utilizing proven methods to succeed in today's music business.
After analyzing the music, the artist's fan base, current team (if there is one), and location, Wendy Day will assemble a realistic Plan of Action, Budget, and Timeline. Wendy will then make certain you have the proper artist contract (if you aren't the artist) that is the basis and foundation of releasing music into the marketplace and making money in the music industry. Monetizing the music is secondary to building the awareness of the artist in the marketplace and in the music industry. I bring access to a legitimate distributor who is willing to distribute just one initial release.
After the finished music is delivered, these are the following areas that I oversee and help you implement for 4 months:
- 1 release
- Video creation (4)
- 6 Singles
- Promotional Tour (4 weeks)
- Street Promotions
- Social Media for 3 months
- Publicity for 2 months
- Streaming Set up and Promotion
- Internet Promotion
- Creation of Promotional Tools
Budgets are limited, so sharp attention must be in place. Every dollar is carefully planned and important! You will need to invest at least $45,000 and I charge $25,000 to quarterback this project, so you are looking at spending a total of $70,000 over a period of 4 months. You are launching your career as an unsigned artist, or an independent artist, with the hopes of securing an investor to stay independent or do a deal with a record label.
This Plan does NOT include recording, mixing, mastering, studio time, production, or office overhead. It also does not include advances or expenses for the artist. It will be in addition to the above budget.
