When it comes to making and selling your own electronic music, you’ve probably heard that you need to find a good record label or work with a good manager.
The problem with this advice is it assumes that you already have an audience for your music. They can take your songs and sell them to their fans, but if you don’t have anyone buying your songs, then they will never make any money.
So what can you do if you don’t have an audience?
The best way to get an audience is by creating a blog or website where people can listen to your music and get updates on what’s new in the world of electronic music.
This will allow you to reach out to thousands of people who are interested in hearing what’s new from you. It also gives them something tangible that they can hold onto so they remember who made their favorite song or album.
This is a guest post by Shane Berry of NotShaneBerry.com, a site that contains a wealth of electronic music production tutorials.
If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve either made electronic music before or are just getting started. Regardless of your skill level, there’s one thing I’m willing to bet on: you want to make money from your music! It’s the reason most people get into it in the first place.
But after many hours spent working on tracks, with absolutely no money to show for it, it can often be easy to give up entirely.
I know how easy it can be because I used to be in the same position. I had no idea how to sell my music online and get paid for it. But after much trial and error, I was able to find out what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to selling your music online.
Over the last few years I’ve been exploring the idea of making a living from composing and selling music from my home studio. It’s a dream that many aspiring musicians share, but it can be difficult to know where to start.
I’m writing this site as a way of explaining what I’ve learned, and what I’m still learning. Hopefully you’ll find some useful information here.
There are two ways to make money from electronic music: sell recordings or sell performances.
The first way is to release your music on iTunes, Spotify, and other platforms. This is the easiest way to make money from your music, as far as setting up a stream of income goes, but it also has the lowest payout rate. If you’re releasing a track on iTunes, even if that track is a chart-topper and gets placed into heavy rotation on Spotify’s playlists, you’re only going to make a few cents per listen. In many cases this kind of income stream is not worth the bother.
The second way to make money from electronic music is by selling tickets to your shows. This can be done in a few ways. Some producers will choose to tour with their equipment – either just themselves or as part of an act – in which case they’ll be making most of their money at the door and/or through merchandise sales. Others will choose to partner with promoters who’ll book them at clubs and venues throughout the world; they may also find themselves being booked at festivals, which can result in big payouts if they get a headlining slot on one of the bigger stages.
In this blog, you will find articles and tips on how to make electronic music.
The articles are written from my own experience and are based on what I have learned over the years.
In this article, I will share with you the tips and tricks for making your own electronic music.
This is not a step-by-step guide but rather a quick overview of the process of making electronic music.
This article is for beginners and advanced users alike.
I started out as a beginner myself so I understand where you are coming from and will try to answer any questions you might have.
The electronic music industry is one of the most lucrative and fast-growing industries in the world. You might be surprised to know that the industry is worth over $7 billion, and this number continues to grow each year.
It is estimated that over 3 million people in the United States alone are making a living from producing electronic music. The opportunities for growth are endless, and it doesn’t matter whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced producer; there is always room to progress your career as an artist.
And then there is the music. I think from a technical standpoint my skills as a musician are pretty low, but I play on purpose. The facts that I cannot create complicated things and that my songs are simple makes it easier for me to share them with other people.
I see the same thing happening with other people who post their music on soundcloud. They make simple songs, but they do not care about it, they just want to see how people like them. This is how you learn by sharing your work with others and getting feedback. You don’t need a label to do this.
