"It's not what you know, it's who you know." Have you ever heard that?
Success in the music business happens because of what you know and who you know. In this episode of the Music Marketing [dot] com Podcast, we talk about how the latter.
The episode is based around a question sent in by Sarah Spencer, a Nashville-based singer/songwriter I strangely enough met at a networking event for musicians.
In this episode, I talk about my general philosophy for getting to know people and give some some very specific examples of how I've done this in the music business. You'll hear how I made the connection that was directly responsible for me hosting Music Business Radio as well as a "random" event that happened just this week which is already on track to be a partnership worth $2.9 Million. And how did Wendy start working for me? We talk about that strange story too...
In addition to stories and my basic philosophy on networking, I also give my top three ways to meet new people in the music business and elsewhere. So whether you're looking for musicians to play with, co-writers to write your next song, or people to help you with your music business, this podcast has what you need to make it happen.
