Great article! Nice perspective!

What ever happened to Bando?


While rates are generally lower for cable television, Audiosocket also places its artists' music on network television, film, and with brands from Monster Energy to Volvo which generate higher revenue for its artists.

Just be careful for those licensing companies that will not work with you if you belong to a PRO like ASCAP, BMI, SESAC or PRS


Great article.
I'm a selfmanaged musician myself and I got a lot out of it.
Sometimes you can get stuck in your own thoughts/plans and feel a bit lost at times.
Reading something like this helps to refocus and it reminds you that you are not the only one out there.
Thanks for sharing......


There's no denying that Youtube can help you earn revenue and a lot of new artists were discovered through youtube.


This article is really great. It definitely helped me to think about different revenue streams for the independent artist, but I felt like another huge part of the DIY artist's revenue is merch. When an artist identifies their target market, they can then cater their merch to the unique interests of the segment and boost their income. For example, if an artist's target (and responsive) market is interested in bicycles, top tube covers with the band's logo could be a cool idea to sell.
