CAREER KEROSENE: Hot Tips to Fuel Your Music Career, #18

Hot Tips to Fuel Your Music Career

  • Stay on top of trends in your part of the music industry.  Visit trade shows and conferences.  Talk shop with your colleagues.  Read journals, newsletters, and trade magazines regularly.  These are where the hidden opportunities live.
  • Use this holiday time to step up your networking.  Now is the perfect time to reach out to that long lost contact and wish them a happy new year.
  • Know your fans better beyond your music.  Find out what they do for a living. See if you can utilize their abilities and interests to barter for what you need. Maybe a fan is a champion skateboarder who could get your band to play the next competition.
