The music business is a business like any other. To be able to grow as an artist, you will need to understand how to navigate this work environment to ensure that you are getting the most out of your work. This webinar will help you start viewing your art as a business, keeping track of and protecting your assets, and staying stable financially.  Who doesn’t want that?

With Shawn Kosmerly (Here Kitty Kitty Productions), Mina Sewell Mansuco (director, editor, photographer)
Music videos are still one of the best ways to get your music out there, and while modern technology means they’re viable DIY pursuits, there’s a lot to learn about them.  Let the pros take you through why they’re great marketing assets, how to make one with limited resources, and get some advice for working well with the director and crew.


With With Vanessa Cito (Reach Social), Michelle Bensimon (Caveboy)
Your social media feeds are more than a place to check out cat memes. This webinar will help you turn your social media accounts into vehicles through which to promote your work and connect with an engaged audience.  Learn how social media fits into an overall marketing strategy, how to best employ each platform, and get tips, tricks and best practices to reap the benefits of this incredible tool.


With Melissa Vincent (A.Side), Ken Beattie (Killbeat Music)
Getting a review or a story written about your music can give a good boost to your career—but how do you make your work stand out to someone who gets hundreds of emails a day?  This webinar will show you what a publicity campaign can accomplish, and give you practical advice for getting a good buzz.
