Radio Corporation of America Reforms, Returns to Camden.

Camden-born performer, musician and entrepreneur, Graham Alexander, announced his companies’ brand portfolio merger into the revived Radio Corporation of America, the former electronics conglomerate that was pieced off to buyers by G.E. through the late 1980s and held as a name holding corporation until the late 2000s. The new and unlikely president quietly detailed the slow re-acquisition process of former brands owned by the company during its Camden-based heyday including Victor Talking Machine Co, His Master’s Voice, Camden, and Little Nipper at an impromptu meeting of the board of advisors.

Music Industry Secret to Success #4 – Have Integrity

I have developed a set of music industry “secrets.” These “secrets” are designed to develop positive behavior, so do not expect a ton of tactical talk. Strategy will be the ultimate takeaway. In each shared “secret,” I am going to give ideas that should help you make the right changes toward a substantial music career. Be sure you check out the previous “secrets” of “Be Yourself”, “Reach Out”, “Listen” and “Have Humility” on FryinginVein.com before reading this.

SOCIAL NETWORKING SPAGHETTI TOSS

Originally I was going to classify this post in the Dear Christian Music Industry section but the more I thought about it, I realized, I think it goes way beyond that.  While I primarily work in the ‘Christian Music Industry’, I think when it comes to “Social Networking” there is so much going on that to pin-point it to one section of one industry doesn’t seem fair.

The bigger SkörInc gets and the more client promotion things we are behind, the more I get asked about different aspects of the web.  I was asked the other day, when it comes to Social Networking, how do I know when something will work.  How do I know that this campaign will be more effective than that campaign?  How do I know where to lay my ‘chips’ that day?  I thought it was a pretty interesting question considering things are so new and it seems like we are in a stage of the game where there’s a crazy amount of options for promoting things.

If I’m honest, I don’t.
