In episode 63 of DAWCast: Music Entrepreneurship, I do something I once vowed never to do again: to create a general update episode!
I took some time to reflect on recent events, where the podcast has come from and where it’s going, what I’ve published lately, and so on.
In retrospect, I may have stumbled upon a new format for the solo podcast shows as well. We’ll see how that develops.
In this episode, you will discover:
- Why I stopped doing general update style podcast episodes, and why I’m doing one now.
- Why I am admitting defeat.
- Why I’m reevaluating why I started this podcast.
- How my motivation to podcast today differs from when I first got started.
- Why I composed a lot of new music recently.
- What music marketing basics you need to grasp as an artist.
- The common mistakes musicians make when they first begin marketing on social media sites.
- The importance of building an email list.
- What artists often miss about creating a bio.
