Are you a musician or a band
that is looking to make your talent a professional endeavor? Do
you know that 9/10 musicians are never able to achieve financial success
in their endeavors? With a 90% financial failure rate it's prudent
for all musicians to seek
music sponsorships. Finding a company, organization,
corporation, or even your fan base to fund you dreams is a guaranteed
way to achieve, or at least prevent, financial ruin. Don't
sacrifice your financial well being for your dreams - you can have both
by attaining sponsorships for your band or music aspirations.
Below are three quick ideas to
help you immediately generate the cash and financial support you may be
looking for in a music sponsor:
Youtube Sponsorships - youtube is a
social networking website, advertising and publishing portal, viral
marketing portal, and your best chance at getting noticed in today's
highly fragmented and digitized music industry. Some youtube
publishers make over $1000 a day with their unique content they publish
on the site. The little advertisements that Google publishers
across these youtube accounts are generally paid on a cost per thousand
impressions (CPM) basis or on a revenue per click basis. The sad
fact is that unless your video is sexy, funny, outlandish,
controversial, or bizarre - you most likely won't get noticed and won't
be able to raise any money for your music aspirations. The image
that appears half way through your video should be able to catch the
attention of any youtube browser. Additionally, make sure your
title and keywords are highly searched or shocking enough to garner
attention. If you have a website - include a link in the item
description to send users to your site where they can donate money.
2. Now that you have
created a youtube account, are publishing highly shocking music videos,
or videos/music featuring your work - send them to your website.
You will want to include your websites URL overlapping the video and
also include the link in your youtube video description field. On
your website you can also generate additional revenue by placing Google
AdSense ads, affiliate marketing ads (Commision Junction, Linkshare,
Azoogle), or by including a paypal donate button. Don't be afraid
or ashamed to bluntly ask your fans for sponsorship contributions.
Ask and you will receive. 80% of people never get what they want
in life because fail to ask, and know, what it is they want.
3. Now that you know how
important Youtube is to generating money and expanding your digital
music presence online - we have to mention the all important Facebook
and Twitter. As a musician or a band you have to connect deeply
with your audience. Your lyrics, imagery, sound, all have to evoke
emotional responses with each individual listener. The best way to
connect with your audience is through social networking websites like
Facebook and Twitter. For Facebook its best to create a fan page
profile and include a link to that on your bands or your own website.
Be sure that if you create a personal social network you still take
extreme steps to guard your brand identity. It's ok to post photos
of your professional life (going to perform at concerts, appearing at
hot night spots, or featuring performances) - but never post personal
imagery and messages that make you seem unprofessional and less than a
star. When releasing new content, direct your social networking
friends to your website or youtube channel to preview the information.
Encourage users to post to your profile, re-tweet your information, or
post video follow up messages to your youtube videos. The more
social you are online the more your users will want to donate money to
your worthy sponsorship cause of taking you to the next professional
