Your 9-Week Online Success Blueprint

 

2014 Brought More Bad News For Artists.

And it wasn’t only Spotify and other streaming sites that added to our frustrations.  But what I see is Musicians are STILL trying to replicate what superstars are doing. Major labels spend millions of dollars trying to create massive awareness using commercial radio, traditional publicists, buy-ons to national tours and other antiquated methods that are not effective.

You can not buy your way to the front of the line – even if you have an enormous budget to blow!

And here  are some true HARD FACTS to paint the real story..

A few stats I picked up at The Pivot Conference from a survey reported by Alison Hillhouse (MTV/ VIACOM)…

  • Most music is discovered through friends on social media so if those friends aren’t talking about you online you won’t go “viral”
  • Online – It’s all about coming up with your own personal brand identity and that is influenced by the artists you love – If you don’t have a clear personal brand you are not going to attract attention
  • 85% of all music lovers say they have eclectic taste – with technology they can find Etta James, Dave Matthews, Drake and Aerosmith all mixed together in a seamless playlist – There is no reason why YOUR music shouldn’t be included in the lineup
  • 76% of respondents have a stronger connection to musicians who share on social media
  • Fans are demanding total interaction from artists – More is EXPECTED from the artists now
  • Buying the music is SYMBOLIC PATRONAGE – you must earn it — this has nothing to do with ethics (i.e I am only paying money out of respect, because this artist uses social media, they therefore deserve my respect)

Everyone Thinks They Know How To Use Social Media but few can actually use it effectively to build a fan base.

For anyone looking to get more exposure it can be the silver bullet.

However, a vast majority of you are using social media all wrong.

You’re on a mission to get your music out to the world.

I want to help you build the RIGHT fan base; one that will support you on your path to becoming a self-sustaining, successful musician.

In order to make this happen, you need to make a foundation; combining strong personal brand and killer digital strategy.

And I’m on a mission to help you make it a reality – using the most effective marketing methods in the world.

You’re missing that ONE thing to focus on that will actually increase:
  • your visibility
  • your fan base
  • your Return On Investment (ROI)

Here ‘investment’ means your time as well as any money you spend marketing and promoting your music.

I want to help you build the foundation for your fans so you can attract Industry (not be a turn-off) and stop wasting time and money!

“[Ariel’s] insight into the “new” music industry is invaluable”

“Ariel is one of the sharpest people I know! Her insight into the “new” music industry is invaluable. Her expert teaching and consulting advice should be required for every artist.”

Tom Jackson, Live Music Producer, OnStageSuccess.com

 

“I’m more hopeful, confident and inspired than I was 9 weeks ago.”

“Participating in Social Media House has resulted in building a website, developing an email list, getting dialogue going about my music with new fans, starting a fruitful mastermind group which has led to multiple important contacts, and writing my first blogs which got picked up immediately by a niche market I’d been targeting. Perhaps most importantly, I’m zeroing in on my ‘brand’. I’m more hopeful, confident and inspired than I was 9 weeks ago.”

Paul Marcus, @PaulMarcusMusic

 

“Ariel is a standout when it comes to providing advice or action to artists of all sizes and genres.”

My  Social Media House Course will teach you how to optimize your overall approach to social media & online marketing and make it work effectively for you.

Ready To Get Dialed In Exposure, Online Recognition PR & Create Die Hard Fans?

Getting social media right is more relevant than ever. Burying your head in the sand, buying fake likes, hiring radio promotion companies that are not connecting the dots to social media, and spending your time scheming on how you can get “discovered,” and skipping all the legitimate connections you should be fostering will not make you successful.

Rolling up your sleeves will.

And what if I told you that you could bring your entire team?

You’ve got to get EVERYONE on the same page. There’s absolutely nothing worse then learning how to succeed and then not having the right “team” or “support” to help you implement.

The music business is a serious one. It has its fun moments, don’t get me wrong, but it’s about you building a sustaining base for yourself.

In order to get music out to the world in a bigger way, wouldn’t it be easier (and much faster) if everyone who supported you was savvy online and knew what the heck they were doing?!?

Think about how much MOMENTUM you could create and how much FASTER you could reach your goals!

Think about it for just second…

Everyone is on the same page, getting the word out about your music.

More exposure.

More die-hard fans.

More lives touched.

Closer to your dream!
