Rethinking AI - Six Months after ChatGPT Changed the World
Rewind to six months ago, the Music Marketing Manifesto podcast was among the very first music industry podcasts to discuss the release of ChatGPT and the looming AI revolution. Fast forward to the present, AI is not just a buzzword - it's a seismic shift that's ignited a veritable arms race in technology.
AI tools such as ChatGPT 4, Midjourney, Runway's Gen 2, Stable Diffusion, and many others have permeated every corner of our lives, with an especially potent impact on the arts and music industry. Some herald this as a landmark leap in human evolution, while others are sounding the alarm, painting it as a potential hazard to our very existence.
In today's episode, we're taking a reflective journey back through these whirlwind six months. We'll dissect what's transpired, the promises kept, and the ones that merely sputtered out, and we'll discuss what we might be expect going forward.
Moreover, we'll share tangible, real-world AI use cases that can elevate your music career here and now, not in some speculative future. This episode aims to provide a comprehensive catch-up on this crucial topic and perhaps, make you reevaluate your perspective on AI.
$50,000 Annually in Music Sales with Free For Shipping & Handling Funnels
At the heart of Music Marketing Manifesto lies the concept of a "Deep Sale Funnel." This approach aims to attract subscribers, form relationships with them, convert them into fans, and ultimately, into music buyers. This approach works and it works well. But it's not the only type of funnel out there!
Another notable approach is the Free For Shipping & Handling Funnel. This method entices people to pay a small shipping and handling fee in exchange for a "free" physical album delivered to their doorstep. While these funnels can be more challenging to execute, their success often surpasses that of any other funnel types when done right.
In this episode of Music Marketing Manifesto, we delve into the intricacies of Free For Shipping & Handling Funnels, and welcome back Kevin Goetz from Mute Prophet. Kevin shares his experience of generating over $50,000 per year in music sales using this funnel strategy.
AI, ChatGPT, and the Future of Music
