How Can We Help? 10/4/13

Wanna get your DIY music promotions questions answered and promote your music? Do you have questions about promoting your music or building a fanbase? Leave it in the comments and we promise to get back to you or even write a post featuring you that answers your question. If we think your question would benefit our readers we’ll post a YouTube video of your song on top of a post that answers your question. No matter what, you will get an answer this week as long as you leave an email address (so we can let you know when we answer your question) and a YouTube URL for your video. All we ask in return is that if we answer your question, please help us spread the word about our book, Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The New Music Business.

    Hi Jesse,
    I have the opportunity to talk this week to a music entertainment lawyer. I’ve ordered your book, but started reading the sample and you mentioned how they can help with music licensing. I wanted to know the best questions to ask him to get the most out of this meeting. Thanks.

    Hey Jesse,

    I had a general question about touring and “buy ons.” Being a small band that has only toured DIY, I’m not really familiar with the whole concept and logistics of buying on. How common is this in the music industry? Is this something that every band has done at some point? Or, is this something that is generally looked down upon? Who actually makes the buy on agreement and monetary exchange?

    Thank you!
