What would I do with just $500 to spend on music marketing?

From 0 to 26 Album Sales Per Day, Using MMM
n the latest episode of the Music Marketing Manifesto Podcast we are going to speak with Kevin Goetz from the metal band, Mute Prophet. Kevin is a Music Marketing Manifesto member who I have watched over the last few years as he (along with other members of his band) took Mute Prophet from obscurity and turned them into an incredible indie success story.
When the band's first album was released they initially sold less then ten copies. Things didn't look great for this symphonic metal band. However, Kevin is one of those guys that doesn't give up, and he worked diligently over the last few years to master the art of direct to fan marketing. He has asked smart questions and has stuck with it for the last few years, and that hard work is really paying off!
These days Mute Prophet sees an average of 26 album sales per day, all on their own terms, and without touring!
In this episode Kevin pulls back the curtain on his band's success and shares EVERYTHING. He walks you through his entire marketing process and shares the precise numbers. This is one you won't want to miss.

Tour on your Own Terms
In episode #43 of the Music Marketing Manifesto Podcast we chat with Brian Vander Ark - lead singer of the band The Verve Pipe - about how he has consistently made six figures per year from house concerts, and how you can too!
House concerts have long been one of the best ways for independent artists to generate a significant amount of revenue each year. That said, with all that is going on in the world, this is probably not the best time for any kind of touring, house concert or otherwise... However, with so many live venues closing down, and no real end of the pandemic in sight, musicians may need to start thinking ahead to a time when we can start touring again. Because for many, house concerts may be the best, if not only, option.
I could think of no one better to tackle this topic than Brian Vander Ark. Brian is the lead singer of the platinum selling rock band, The Verve Pipe. Years ago he embraced the 1000 true fan model and began doing house concerts across America for his existing fan base. The result was as much as six figures a year in revenue by performing backyards and living rooms for just a few months each year. In this interview he will explain exactly how he did it and how YOU can too!
