Cyber PR celebrated the holidays with a series of posts titled "12 Days of Monetization" featuring 13 writers, including a bonus poster, discussing a variety of ways to make money with your music. The approaches range from psychological to technical but they all offer practical tips and ideas for improving your money-making abilities. Whether you need to shift your perspective or simply tighten up your ecommerce game, there really is something for everybody here and, for a change, that's not a bad thing.
Ariel Hyatt discusses "12 Days of Monetization" and what she hopes to achieve with the series:
"There is a lot of focus on what artists are not getting, and on the struggle. I want to focus instead on how to get a little bit more on what we all want, and that is to make money with our music. In that spirit, I have asked 12 of my favorite people to share with me their thoughts on monetization."
