I’m back with another tutorial! Everything you need to know about the online music space. As a veteran of the music business, like everyone, I’ve had to learn about all of the online tools and platforms available to fans, artists, and industry professionals and it can be overwhelming. If you’re entertained or educated or both, feel free to visit my blog at http://pmmgmt.wordpress.com
Two years ago, I made a video, “Mgmt In The New Digital World”, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7ANYvXP1hY because I was so overwhelmed with all of the online tools for music being bombarded at me everyday. I rattled off as fast as I could with a dose of sarcasm all of the tools and platforms for all facets of finding, releasing, and marketing music only to conclude that the content still had to be great and that nothing could ever replace direct in-person human interaction. The reaction was tremendous which caught me by suprise. Well two years later, as the online space evolves at such a rapid pace, here’s a new version with even more updated information. I’m still going at lightning speed for again, a little dose of sarcasm because as helpful as they are, they cannot be used to replace direct in-person interaction. Its alot crammed into 8 minutes so I created chapters to skip around if you want this time.
