Today's interview is with music marketing expert, author and host of Music Business Radio, David Hooper.
I've always enjoyed listening to David's interviews, so when planning my trip down to Nashville recently I reached out to him on Twitter. I asked if he was up for being on the other side of the mic and answering some of my nosy questions.
I was especially interested in interviewing David as he has interviewed many movers and shakers as well as artists in the industry, so I knew he was bound to have a ton of insight to share!
David helps upcoming artists and songwriters to make more money in the music business. Since 1995, it’s what he's done on a daily basis. Last week David published his latest book "6 Figure Musician - How to Sell More Music, Get More People to Your Shows, and Make More Money in the Music Business. This music marketing book comes with the guarantee that if you follow his recommendations you will make $100,000 or more. It is packed with a ton of great information and best of all it is absolutely free! As you can imagine I was very curious to ask David some of his marketing secrets!
We recorded the interview in the lobby of the hotel, amongst bustling musicians and other guests, so expect some interesting background noises!
Among other topics we discuss how to make $100k in the new music industry, what we can learn from spam e-mails, techniques to building a mailing list, engaging fans, touring, traits of success, and much more!
