My name is Will and I’m currently writing my own album but college takes away the funds necessary to do so. I have starter a kickstarter campaign that I am extremely excited about. You can see my music here:
The best thing Zip Marketing can do for your brand is put your brand on the internet. If your brand is not already on the 112 free to sign up websites, Zip Marketing signs up to the free websites free taking the time to do everything correctly, upload the correct songs, upload the correct photos, type the words in correct spelling, basically update the entire page correctly the first time and locking in the correct URL. So many times you see things placed on the internet with incorrect spelling, the wrong photos and the wrong music. Zip Marketing places all the correct links on each page and makes everything on the internet of that brand to work correctly on all 112 social and mp3 sites.

The one who is a regular at music concerts or live music shows would understand what we are talking about here, but the first time goers may be clueless about the codes to be followed at such concerts. Surely, majority of who pay hefty price to buy concert tickets go to have a gala time listening to their favorite music and cheering for their favorite musician, singer, rock band etc.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – APR. 2, 2013 Kunal Dovedy, a San Francisco entrepreneur, artist, and musician, launched a Kickstarter campaign today to raise $8000 in 14 days to support “The Turbinophone”, a Burning Man art installation that transforms a turbojet engine into an interactive musical instrument, playable by the participants of Burning Man.
The internet has opened doors to promotional opportunities for artists worldwide. The problem with that is it’s created a much more competitive market, and you need to stand out from the crowd. Ultimately your music sells itself, and without the talent you won’t succeed. But even the most talented musicians don’t necesarily succeed in the industry today (or in the past). That’s where management comes in, however most managers charge a fortune and take a cut of your money. A lot of indie artists just manage themselves today, which is a full time job if you want to succeed. When you have another full time job, your band, and managing your band, that can be extremely diffecult. Plus it takes away from your true passion, the music. As musicians ourselves, and with years in the industry, this is why we offer management unlike any other.
The biggest thing in common between these types of acts, aside from the volume of drugs consumed, is the level of mastery in connecting fans with fans. Let’s take a quick look at three different types of fan interaction:

Further, forming an effective Content Strategy is the way savvy MusicPreneurs and DIY Creators of every type are going to build a loyal audience, a truly sustainable career, and a profitable brand in the modern world.
As the majority struggles (and understandably so) with the overwhelm and unavoidable frustration of trying to piece everything together, those that are going to emerge on top once the dust settles are those that understand the concepts I’m talking about here and will have built their brands foundation around it.
The digital age has brought about many changes within the music industry in both how we receive and how we consume music. It has been well documented that the music industry has had a hard time trying to keep up. In this article I will be looking at the way in which new media channels have opened up opportunities for popular music artists to convey themselves and capture an audience through some the new channels that have opened up from the creation of the Internet.
If there’s one thing I love doing while travelling it’s finding the local CD store. But I’m not looking for cheap rip-offs of North American artists. No, I’m looking for the local artists, and not just the traditional music either. I want the real, modern music. Rock, metal, pop, and sometimes jazz and classical music. And this is why I still love CD stores and dread the day that they cease to exist.
