New Music Industry Seminars Announced for Waikato & Bay of Plenty


NEW MUSIC INDUSTRY SEMINARS ANNOUNCED FOR WAIKATO AND BAY OF PLENTY

Following the outstanding success of the ‘Make Money From Your Music’ seminars the NZ Music Managers Forum, with thanks to NZ On Air and the Creative Communities Scheme in Hamilton and Tauranga, are returning to Waikato and Bay of Plenty with the essential Stage Two seminar ‘Marketing and Promoting Your Music’. 

How musicians release and promote contemporary music has changed considerably in the last couple of years with an increased focus on digital.  Over 70% of the New Zealand Music Industry income is from streaming, but this means that an artist is competing to have their music consumed in one big worldwide digital store. In order to cut through they need to be active across many promotional channels. With record labels signing fewer artists direct, it is important that managers and musicians learn these skills for their independent releases. 

This not to be missed seminar will cover all avenues of releasing, marketing and promoting music including the various ways to release a song, EP or album, distribution – digital and physical, P.R., bio’s, press releases, tips for pitching to media, marketing, digital marketing, social media, playlists and radio airplay.
