How To Make Money From Music
If you’re playing gigs but barely making enough to cover your petrol, if you’re releasing tracks but never covering the cost of your distribution from your streaming royalties, and you’re always emptying your change jar to pay for rehearsal time this workshop is for you. We’re not churning out millionaires or selling get rich quick schemes but we can help you start to make money from your music through understanding your royalties, sharing different options and costs to releasing your music, and being able to command a fee for your live shows.
This is a two hour workshop and we’ll make sure you’ve got an action list to take away at the end of the session. Sign up here to be the first to hear about dates and locations for this workshop, and book early to get your 50% off early bird pricing.
Finding Fans: how to build a fan base eager for your music
Everyone has to have a Facebook page these days, right? But you also have to boost those posts if you want people to see them. Social media can take a lot of your time (and money) and not show you a definite return. We’ll help you find fans who want to buy your music and come to your gigs by showing you where your effort is best placed, and sharing some tips to get the most from social media and other ways of connecting to the people who love your music (and we don’t just mean your mum).
This is a two hour workshop and we’ll make sure you have a checklist and content plan to take away at the end of the session. Sign up here to be the first to hear about dates and locations for this workshop, and book early to get your 50% off early bird pricing.
DIY PR: going it alone for coverage for you next release
You’ve sent a hundred emails to every magazine, blog, playlister, and radio station you can find but the reviews aren’t coming. If you’re not ready or able to spend money with a PR this workshop is for you. We’ll make sure you reach more people with your next release by taking you through how to get the perfect press pack together, how to plan your timelines and crucially – how to get seen in a journalist’s inbox.
This is a half day course and the price includes refreshments. We’ll make sure you have a campaign template and checklist to take away at the end of the session. Sign up here to be the first to hear about dates and locations for this workshop, and book early to get your 50% off early bird pricing.
Don’t want to wait?
If you want to start working toward success with your music right now you can book in for a free, no obligation, 15 minute discovery call with Sarah Lay now. She’ll get to know you and your music to see how we might work together. You can also find other ways to work with us here.
I'm a fan of black coffee, the west coast of Scotland, crows, conversations and connections. I'm in love with possibilities.
