Indie Marketing School for the Independent Artist
Music Marketing takes time. Social takes time. Recording, writing, performing, producing, creating, and sleeping takes time…
24 hrs – life = starving artist
The story isn’t new, the Independent artist has a lot to do. It becomes painful to even think about all the stuff your doing that might not move the needle in your career.
You spent hours crafting a Instagram post that no one seemed to notice, you recorded a heart felt video for YouTube that received 10 plays (from your mom). Spotify says 30 plays on the song you released 6 weeks ago… and you need to find time between your “real job” and family n’ friends to do it all again this week. Welcome to being an Independent artist.
It’s no wonder you’re always tired and want to just make music… but until you can afford a media and marketing manager at $75-$150 an hour you’re stuck doing it yourself – or worse thinking some person on Fiverr can actually help you out.
Indie Marketing School is here to help. Need a new music release plan – gotcha covered. Need to understand Spotify analytics – that’s what we do. Setting up your social campaign for brand awareness – we’re here for ya. If your tight on time, spending it on things that don’t work is going to really make it feel like the world is against you at every turn. Take the time to learn what works and remove 80% of the crap that isn’t paying off – Indie Marketing School is where you’ll figure out what is working, what isn’t working and what you need to get involved in for the future to make it as an Independent artist.
About Billy Houston
Hey, my name is Billy Houston, I’m a music and TV marketer and publicist. I’ve worked with a number of different record labels, TV Networks and media personalities to develop their brand and help them gain exposure. I have helped clients get featured on HGTV, Food Network, Good Morning America, published in NYT best selling books as well as so many other TV, Radio, Podcasts & Playlists.
Decades of experience has crafted the way I help artists get exposure to the world, and I want to share that experience with everyone. Gone are the days where a few people controlled media – but that expansion comes at a cost. Being heard is difficult when everyone is screaming. Finding the right voice that will get you noticed is a daunting task. I’m here to help.
