Get Music Money Online

I just got another commission from being an Affiliate of ARMusic. It's not easy, but it does work and it's residual/passive income (money while I sleep).

While online blogging, participating in music forums, discussions and sending emails, I leave my Affiliate Link Code as my signature in emails, music forums and post banners on my blogs and websites, never spamming of course. Essentially, I leave a footprint when online, so when I'm offline my efforts are still working for me.

It seems to be working as I just got another commission from ARMusic.

Billion Dollar Music Business Label

Here are some thoughts on what to do with a budget to start a billion dollar music business label.

Hire the best and brightest minds in technology, accounting and legal matters. I'd hire a master mind group of elders who have were cutting edge in their glory days who wanted to give the music business another run. I'd hire a team of young bucks who were futuristic in their thinking. Then we'd search for the best new talent that hasn't been discovered, give a time horizon for grooming them for new millennium stardom.

The rest of the plan requires a retainer (deposit). The plan is laid out and air tight. Additionally, it wouldn't cost a billion to do it. It could be pulled off for about a one ($1,000,000) to three ($3,000,000) million give or take a few pounds. If anyone is interested and has access to the funding please contact me off line.

In the meantime you may want to download Industry Pimping to ensure you're not being pimped in the music business. Music producers, beat makers and composers will want to download and read Lease Beats Make Money.

Music Producer Get Money

Below is my response about an emerging music producers frustration with the music business. Perhaps there's something you may take away from this Get Music Money Blog.

For sake of conversation there are two time frames for becoming independently wealthy one is in the short term the other is in the long term. If one starts early anywhere between 18 to 30 years old and socks away enough money ($50 to $200 a month) month after month in a no-load index mutual fund they can pretty much assure that they'll hit millionaire status at some age around 55 or so, give or take a few years depending on when they started investing and how much they invested monthly mind you.

Then there's a number of ways to becoming independently wealthy that stretch the imagination. For time sake let's agree that at the other end of the stick in order to become independently wealthy you can win the lotto or lottery.

You have a far greater chance of becoming wealthy from investing on a constant basis than you do hitting it big by playing the lottery.

SOLUTION:

Find those things in the music business that are akin to becoming a commercial success that would mirror putting away small amounts of money to becoming independently wealthy over time. For instance, why not find one to three hot artist that you sign to a development or production deal. Create their sound and help them become a success, as the music producer you will shine, because they are shining. Some of the most notable music producers in Hip Hop and R&B have used this formula and created independent wealth. Some of them include Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Diddy, DJ Toomp, Jermaine Dupri, RZA, Quincy Jones, Bryan M. Cox and others. Perhaps you could use this proven method to increase your chances for commercial success while going after that major label placement in the short term. One of them is bound to work.

As far as people calling you back. It's been my experience that everybody in the music business is running around doing this and doing that. If people see how they can make money off you or with you they'll go the extra mile. If people like you they'll go the extra mile. If people aren't sure how to tell you no, because you have a friendship (or so we think LOL) they often want call you back. I think this is a function of human nature or inexperience saying no as an adult. :-)

Who Pays Songwriters & Music Producers?

The information below is from Allen Johnston -the Music Specialists. Allen has over 30+ years experience in the music business and regularly speaks at music conferences, seminars and workshops around the world. Additionally, he is one of the original featured speakers at the Radio Music Conference. Allen produces a regular email newsletter with vital information and updates on the music business. To join his email list visit asha.com.

"I have been a member of ALL three societies with multiple publishing houses and one thing I have found to be consistent. You need to make friends at whatever society you join. Your friend can assist you in placing songs, finding work and even helping you license. Unfortunately I have found very few songwriters, producers or artists that take the time to be friends with someone. Most assume that the Performing Rights Society should automactically work for the writer or publisher. Have you noticed that the SESAC people are being called out by name? That is not a mistake, they know there writers, publishers and friends.

All 3 societies pay identical, knowing who signs the checks helps. Knowing how to work the society infrastructure to make yourself stand out in a positive way will greatly increase your revenue stream." Allen Johnston
