The first few weeks of 2011 have been quite eventful at Go Forth Music. There hasn’t been a lot of blogging, but we have been planning and coming up with ways to better serve you, the musician/music industry entrepreneur.
In the coming weeks, expect to see a few additions to your free news and blog articles. Specifically:
- Starting in February, we’re offering a monthly, paid seminar teaching music industry skills relevant to today’s “music middle class”. Look out for info.
- We’ll be providing your with more information you want to know from working industry experts. A few of you have been sending in your questions via our Ask An Expert page. If you have questions you want answered, make sure to submit them. It’s absolutely free!
- We’ll be rolling out our consultation services. Our team is skilled in a variety of areas. Having worked with and learned from the best (we have graduates from top law schools and music business programs whose client list includes Kevin Liles, Timbaland, Warner Music Group, Island Def Jam, and Jimmy Douglass), we want to provide you with everything you need to get your career moving forward. From contract review and copyright filing to mixing, mastering, web design, and marketing/social media plans, we can get it done.
- We’re going to start leveraging our communities talent to get you more exposure. We’re starting off with the Hear Here compilation that we’ve been working on for the past few months. Participants get free promotion on college campuses. Next up, music licensing opportunities. More on that next week.
- We’re launching our “Industry Insiders” series chronicling the jobs of real, working music industry entrepreneurs and veterans. See how they deal with the challenges you face everyday, and gain helpful insight from their words.
We’ll still be bringing you the articles you’ve grown to love (soon we’ll be adding videos!). We have yet to publish our how-to article on analytics and Next Big Sound, as well as our series on Performance Rights Organizations (including a very informative interview from Compound Entertainment songwriter Prissy Polet).
Stay tuned…there’s a lot more to come!
