Starting The Day

People get rich or go broke $50 at a time. It’s the little things in life that add up to big results. Investing in the music now can payoff in the next 10-15 years.

Make sure that before you have your first encounter of the day, you have consciously assumed control of your own mind, and made the necessary shifts of consciousness to ensure that you’re in optimum inner condition for a successful encounter.

You can’t go out and conquer the world until you have conquered you own backyard. What does your “backyard” look like? You can’t love other people, unless you truly love yourself.

I highly recommend that you begin to discipline yourself just enough to where each and every morning you set aside a focused amount of time before heading out into the world, to clarify in your mind the priorities that you’re going to hold to throughout the day.

When you discipline yourself each morning, your mind, so that it focuses its full attention on the present moment, you activate an entire array of life possibilities that simply won’t exist for you during the day if you remain unconscious of your deeper presence and power.

 

Easy Music Creation with Music Maker Loops

There’s a certain editor for music that uses loops, it’s called Music Maker.The software comes with sample loops that you can use to create your tracks. Music Maker loops are features that make it extremely easy for you to start your song writing career just by using this software.

Before innovations like Music Maker loops were invented, we were all quite clueless about how to start creating songs. With this function, you can easily come up with great songs without spending a lot of time thinking of a good loop!

Here’s what you can do as soon as you get the software: create a sequence and add new sounds, then build your first arrangement into a loop or a series of loops. You can imagine just how many sounds and beats you can pump out in a jiffy just by using this program.

It’s amazing how technology has helped us all create these loops. The Music Maker loops are extremely useful if you’re looking for a quick way to make good music.

One way to begin using the Music Maker is to simply experiment with all the loops one after the other.

When you get the hang of it, it’s time to challenge yourself by turning off the easy mode and starting from scratch. It might take some time to get a handle on the manual controls and synthesizer features, but it’s well worth your time as it will make your music so much better in the long run.

It takes most of us, the seasoned and the beginners, quite some time when playing with a new program, to create anything worth exporting. But hang in there!

A Music Production School Can Teach You the Business Side of Music Too

Making music is great, but how about the music business administration part of it? For those who may feel that they don’t quite have the musical chops to be stars in the music industry, there is still a chance to have a successful career in the entertainment world with a music business administration program from a good music production school.

Popular music artists need well-trained professionals to guide them and help them advance their careers from a management perspective. There are also tremendous job opportunities available, both technical and managerial, in entertainment industry related organizations, broadcasters and on-line digital distribution services.

WHAT DOES A MUSIC BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM CONSIST OF?

Most high-quality music production schools will offer you a full time, 45-week three-term study program, or a variation on that. This length of time ensures that you cover the full breadth of opportunities in the entertainment industry.

Generally speaking, most music production schools will start with providing an overview of the organizational structure of the music industry (local, national and international) from creation to distribution. There is usually also an effort to introduce students to contracts, copyright law and marketing. From this sort of overview, students will be able to gleam a solid understanding of the music industry from the business side. Students will also learn all the various aspects involved in a studio recording project, including the choice of record producer, financial and contractual arrangements, musician and song selection, and, that all important negotiating a recording contract.

Some of the best music production schools will also offer courses that provide a more in depth introduction to the day-to-day operations of the artist management business. Promotion and public relations are now more than ever being touched upon, along with the marketing tools for an artist’s project at the local, national and international level.

The final term of study that most music production school s offer usually involves teaching you the skills to support an artist, particularly in the administrative and creative aspect. Also, you will learn how to develop, guide and manage an artist’s career. Finally, in the best music production schools, you will have the opportunity to take part in an internship in a music business enterprise. This is one of the most important aspects of the training as the best learning for music business administration lies in the hands-on aspect where you learn the tricks of the trade. A good music production school will be able to help place you in a reputable music business enterprise where you can learn from the best.

Some schools will ask for a secondary school diploma or the equivalent to enter into a music business administration diploma program, so keep this in mind. Nevertheless, with all the new emerging music artists and music distribution options, there has never been a more opportune time than now to enroll in a music production school program like music business administration!

 

The Law of Averages

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Marketing is a numbers game.”?
It doesn’t make mathematical sense, but marketing is about people, not math. Here is the secret to marketing success. It doesn’t get any simpler than this, you just have to believe it.

At First I Didn’t Believe It

I heard about the law of averages only a few weeks after I started Internet Marketing.

I was told that after I had used a certain marketing method for a few weeks, I would notice a trend. For instance, if I was making phone calls, I would notice that for every 40 people I called, 5 would ask for more info, and for every 10 who asked for more info, 1 would join. Or, for every 100 people who visited my webpage, one would take action that resulted in my making a profit.

My personal statistics would differ, they said, depending on the quality of my page, the attractiveness of my offer, my skill in talking on the phone etc. I would have to keep track of my efforts and responses to know how much I would need to work to get the results I wanted.

This is what they told me, but I didn’t believe them. I was told that for my webpage, 400 visits a day would make me a solid profit. Well then, I thought, if I get 50 visits a day, I should make a profit after 8 days. Day after day went by without any profits. Week after week, I struggled, checked my stats, and hung my head in dissapointment. I added up my visits for the month. Several thousand visits, and not one sale, or maybe two or three at best.

I remade my web page. Not once, but three times. No difference. The only way you can fail is by giving up. Keep trying. I was told.

Then I Saw It Working

After several months (it seemed like forever) I started noticing a few profit days each month. First I had three days of profit, then five, then eight. Of course when I added things up at the end of the month, I was still losing money. I felt helpless. What was causing the profit, and why was it so sporadic? Was I at the mercy of chance? And if so, why was I so unlucky?

Silly me, I never thought about looking at my webpage visits in relation to my sales. Sure enough, my magic number seemed to be 110. If I had 95 visits to my page in one day, I would lose money almost every time. If I had 100, I may lose money, and I may break even. It was a toss-up. If 110 people visited my site,
Wah-Lah! I was in profit mode!

This One Concept Could Ensure Your Success

Now I know this doesn’t seem logical, but it really does work. If you will simply believe this principle, you will be on the fast track to success. Here it is again.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

The Law of Averages: When you start marketing, you will notice a trend. You will achieve your desired result after a certain number of attempts. That number will tend to continue. All you have to do to achieve your desired result is multiply the number of attempts by this magic number.
Of course, you will get better at what you do. Your phone skills will improve. You will tweak your page or ad copy, and begin to get better results. Things will get easier as you progress.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __

But if you believe this principle, your success will be inevitible, and even though it may take time, you will achieve your desired result. It will only take you four clear easily recognizable steps. I won’t decieve you and say these steps will be easy, but you will know exactly what your targets are for each step.

Set up your business. Choose your company or product, and decide what avenues you are going to market it in. Are you going to get a list of leads and call them? Are you going to make a web page? Does the company provide a web page for you to promote online?

Plan your marketing strategy and get started.

Keep track of your statistics. How much exposure do you need to make one sale, or get one sign-up?

Decide how much you want to achieve, multiply by your required exposure, and work to obtain that much exposure. You will know exactly how much you have to work to achieve your goals!
That’s all there is to it.

May you be successful beyond your wildest dreams!
