The most popular Haulix music biz videos of 2021

After a long and successful year of helping artists, the Haulix Music Biz team shares their most viewed videos of 2021.

A guest post by James Shotwell of Haulix.

There are so many things we’d like to say about 2021. The second weirdest year in recent memory presented new opportunities and fresh horrors none of us could have foreseen, but together, we found a way forward. Your support and engagement kept our team working hard when others may have quit, and we have you to thank for so much of what we accomplished in the last twelve months.

Nobody knew if Music Biz would work. Sure, some people like to talk about music, but how many people actually want to discuss the business part of the music business? The answer, at least, from what we’ve seen, is a lot of people. 

Music Biz is our attempt to create and curate tomorrow’s music business. We are passionate about sharing ideas and information for the sake of helping one another not only survive the entertainment business but thrive within it. We are forging a community of driven professionals and artists eager to discuss the nuts and bolts of this thing we are trying to do for a living.

We made many videos in 2021, and you spent over a quarter-million minutes watching along. That support means everything, and we wanted to celebrate that milestone by sharing some of our most popular videos. You’ll find the top 5 clips from recent months below. We’ll return with more great content soon.

RIP Ringback Tones

Again 2021 as the world realized ringback tones were a thing of the past. It’s almost funny to think millions paid for ringback tones in a world where most don’t answer their phones (and often keep them on silent).

Clubhouse Has A BIG Problem

After rising to popularity thanks largely to a false sense of exclusivity, Clubhouse found itself a topic of controversy due to its lack of accessibility features. The app has since been updated.

What Music Business Majors Need To Know

A “golden oldie” of our channel, this clip finds new life every spring as millions of young music fans decide whether or not college is right for them. We have several videos on this topic, so be sure to subscribe for similar content in the future.

When Will Concerts Return (January 2020 COVID Update)

Remember when concerts were basically illegal, and life was worse as a result? Let’s not do that again. Get vaccinated. Get boosted. Wear a mask. Don’t be an idiot.

What Artists Can Learn from Greta Van Fleet

Greta Van Fleet continues to inspire a new generation of rock fans. That’s no surprise to us, and it should be no surprise to you.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for your continuing support of Music Biz. We are working on exciting new ideas for 2022, and we are looking forward to sharing the next chapter of our channel with you. Until then, take care of each other. We can all get ahead, but we have to work together.
