A Sample Music Business Plan

image from In Music Think Tank, Kevin English follows up on his earlier post on how to write a music business plan. In this recent post, he gives the elements of a good music business plan and uses a sample from the indie hip hop group, The Northern Southerners. He goes on to explain that, โ€œA plan not only provides you with a framework for growth, but also takes a closer look at the details of your business; ones that are typically over looked without a business plan.โ€

  1. This is great, but there are typos in the plan. It should be “CDs,” not “CD’s,” which is only used to denote possession.

  2. Sue, I have always been annoyed by people using the apostrophe like that…but then I found out that with an abbreviation or acronym, it is correct!
    I still don’t like how it looks, though.

  3. Cmon, seriously? Do we really need to correct people’s writing in public? Send them a private message, so the posts stay focused on the original topic.

  4. Well said, if you guys want perfect English, go to a blog that caters to writers, no indie musicians, as long as it gets the point across I really don’t care, how they write it.

  5. …and Chris, I think you meant ‘not indie musicians’ as opposed to ‘no indie musicians’.
    wocka wocka!

  6. Jeez, now that I read the actual business plan, the thing is riddled with typos. C’mon, Kevin English! You’re the winner of Prudential’s National Business Competition after all! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Also, where can we find the “Start up Cost spreadsheet”?
