Wisdom Nuggets

Customer service should be like a consultation: It's so important to treat your audience like valued partners in the music industry or any industry at all. Like a consultation, you should actively engage with them, ask for their feedback, and really listen to what they have to say. 

What It Takes To Be Successful In Music: A lot goes into making a music track successful beyond the initial release! One key factor is sustainability – According to Cris, you've got to keep that track relevant and popular for up to 6 months or more. And you know what? It's not just about releasing the audio; you've got to be versatile and use different formats like short clips, music videos, acoustic versions, and instrumentals. That way, you can reach a wider audience and keep the excitement alive!

Engaging With Your Audience: Engaging with your audience is the heart of it all! You can do covers of popular songs, giving them your own twist, and that really helps you connect with our fans on a personal level. It's like sharing musical interests, you know? And here's the secret sauce – listening to their feedback. Seriously, when they feel like they're part of the creative process, it's a beautiful thing! You get to understand their preferences, make improvements, and make them feel appreciated and involved. It's a win-win!
