Why are those in the music industry struggling to generate income online when there are more people than ever listening to, searching for and purchasing music online?
St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
How to become a professional musician, marketing in the music industry, the key barrier to “making it” and much more is revealed in Extreme Live Music’s new website and online community serving both artists and fans. Industry leaders participate in the Insider’s Forum answering questions. The site is packed with proven strategies to navigate the industry’s new terrain which is littered with the analog to digital revolution carnage.
The key barrier to success, explaining why most musicians and record companies are failing to survive in the current downturn of the music industry, has been isolated by site’s Founder and Creative Director, Faye Nicolette.
The dilemma was, “Why are those in the music industry struggling to generate income online when there are more people than ever listening to, searching for and purchasing music online?” said Nicolette.
Nicolette and her team studied the struggles and pitfalls of the business models in the industry including what is happening with the labels to discover the key factor, that if resolved, could help musicians achieve a fun, stable and very successful career.
The key barrier is the lack of a strong connection between the artists and their fan base. Many of today’s modern music services and social networks provide access to music for free or for pennies on the dollar without giving the listeners a way to connect with the Artists in a direct and meaningful manner. This connection creates the emotional bond that has fueled the music industry since the beginning of time and it is what allows artists to build and sustain their fan base for decades.
“With this barrier isolated, we created a new alternative to conquer it that shows artists how to build a fan base they can interact with. My studies also defined several additional barriers this industry throws at artists and the site provides strategies for overcoming them all because frankly, there are just too many that are useless and unnecessary,” said Nicolette.
The ExtremeLiveMusic.com site is changing the industry by providing an international promotional platform while helping artists understand marketing strategies. Altogether, providing a new business model that teaches artists how to build a loyal fan base and sell music without having to sell their soul to a record label or any other legally binding entity. They encourage artists to become entrepreneurs, network, educate themselves and build a trusted team that can take them to the top of the music charts.
