Discover The Secrets Of Music Marketing
The IMA Music Business Academy Membership CardHey guys, it’s Shaun Letang from Music Industry How To and Independent Music Advice here. Today I wanted to introduce you to a course I’ve put together that will help you learn essential skills I feel every independent musician should know. The course in question is The IMA Music Business Academy, and it’s one that has already helped hundreds of musicians do more with their music.

Forget the sales pitch, forget all the hype. You’ve read some of my guides before, and you know what I’m about. What I’m offering you today though is truly the best and most helpful guide I’ve ever written, if you can call 140,000+ words just a ‘guide’ that is. :)

I have no doubt in my mind that this course can help push your music career forward, so I hope you go on to give it a try. Read to the bottom for all the info.

Note: The Academy is a online music business course. That means your lessons will be delivered online, and can be accessed by logging into your members area using details you will be given once you sign up. As it’s an online based course, you can join at any time and follow along at your own pace. It will help you no matter what genre of music you make.

How The Academy Can Help You

If your music career aims include playing good music which is appreciated by others and makes you money, there is one very important thing you should know:

Being talented alone won’t help you achieve this!

While being talented is an important part of things, there’s another key element that people often overlook; The ability to effectively market yourself.

Music Marketing StrategyMusic marketing is the process of raising awareness of you and your sound, and making people want to hear more of you. Many people believe that if they’re talented enough, people will naturally find out about their music. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.

You need to get your music out there, and in a way that will make people notice you. You’re competing with thousands of other musicians in your genre, so simply giving your music out for free won’t help you build a strong enough following to start making money.

The ability to effectively market yourself and adopt the right strategies has become all important for doing more in your music career, and no record label is going to help you with this. You need to learn how to do it yourself… Or with the help of the Academy.

Through the IMA Music Business Academy, I’m offering to teach you solid music business strategies that you can use right away! You will learn what needs to be done to maximize your chances of success, and you will do it in a way that is easy to understand and apply.

All lessons provide practical information without holding anything back, and will therefore help give you a clear path to much bigger results.

If you’ve been doing music but aren’t currently where you want to be, I can help. It’s not your fault, there’s no lessons in school that teach you how to properly market your music. Even those music courses at university only really tell you how to do things from the perspective of a record label, and will only be useful if you’ve got a big enough budget to implement these strategies. Furthermore they cost grands to enroll on, and your lessons will span over two or three years. Not ideal when you want your music career to take off sooner rather then later…

In the Academy however, I assume you don’t have a big budget, and don’t have a big team behind you. This means that no matter what stage you’re at, you will learn useful music business skills you can use to further your career. On top of this, you can choose how fast or slow you take all the lessons in. Complete the course in 24 days, 3 months or 6 months, the choice is yours.

Final Advice

Each lesson will teach you new tactics and strategies that will help progress your music career. These are proven methods that the record labels and successful independent musicians have been using for years to increase their fans and income. You can use these same tactics to get things moving for you too.

At the end of each lesson, I’ll give you a task to do. In order to make the most out of this course, you should carry you these tasks as mentioned. This will mean you’ll actively be putting into action the things you have learned, and increasing your chances of success. While you can carry out the tasks in your own time, it’s advised you put them into practice at least once a week so you can get your music career moving as soon as possible.

Normally gaining all the knowledge you need to achieve these things would take years. By following the IMA Music Business Academy lessons however, you will be able to learn how to do all this in as little as 24 days! Put in time to do the tasks at the end of each lesson I deliver, and you will be well on your way to achieving all of the above. Ready to get started? Then enroll now.
