The Music Biz Academy (http://www.musicbizacademy.com) proudly announces the release of the 2003 edition of "How to Promote Your Music Successfully on the Internet," the music industry's most up-to-date 'how to' guide to making money on the Internet using music.
The author, David Nevue, is an independent musician who has been promoting his own music online since 1995. "The Internet is a very exciting place to grow your music career," says Nevue. "Contrary to common thought, you donÂt need a recording contract to be successful. You can get radio play, grow a fan base, create a distribution channel, and manufacture and sell CDs all online." Nevue understands the frustration most musicians feel when trying to 'make it' in the business. "I got tired of banging my head against a wall trying to get someone 'with money' to take interest in my music and career," he says. "I learned what most every other musician finally comes to grips with: if you want a successful career in the music business you can't wait for someone else to 'discover' you. You have to find your own way."
Nevue found his own way - using the Internet to promote and distribute his music. Completely on his own, without any help from a major record label, he released seven albums of his original music. "I'm doing music full-time now," Nevue continues. "That's all I ever really wanted - to create music, inspire others, and have the opportunity to be heard."
Nevue wrote "How to Promote Your Music" to help other musicians find the same freedom he has enjoyed. "Many musicians are either intimidated or skeptical about the opportunities available online. They donÂt need to be either. You donÂt need a record deal to have the satisfaction of knowing thousands of people a day are listening to your music."
The 2003 edition of "How To Promote Your Music Successfully on the Internet" includes everything a musician needs to start pursuing their own success online. Chapters include "The Best Places to Sell, Promote, and Distribute Your Music Online," "Targeting Your Customers to the Max," and "Proven Strategies for Selling Your Music." The book also details how to take credit cards (in 15 minutes!) and includes a very easy-to-understand guide to search engine optimization and submission. The book concludes with a 'Quick Reference Guide' containing hundreds of links to useful resources.
Previous editions of "How To Promote Your Music Successfully on the Internet" have received high praise from many in the online industry, including Hitsquad.com, The Buzz Factor, MusicDish, FourFront Music and AllMusic.com. Its biggest fans, however, are the readers themselves, with dozens of testimonials from happy customers listed at the Music Biz Academy web site.
