Making Money With Your Music

Making Money With Your Music

See Inside the Course

It’s never been a better time to make money as an independent musician, and if you know how to properly run your music career as a business, you’ll have endless opportunities to build and sustain a financially rewarding career.  In the new music industry, there are countless sources of revenue to explore, but one of the issues that comes along with that is knowing which revenue sources you should focus your efforts in. In this section we focus on many of the most lucrative revenue sources available to musicians and I walk you through my own personal income and expenses and how they have changed over the years.

We also cover in-depth strategies on earning money through music sales and streams, YouTube and Twitch monetization options, how to build and grow a membership business on Patreon, earning income through live performances, earning income through brand deals, sponsorships and endorsements, and I offer some personal insight into how I negotiate contracts, what I look for in opportunities, and how I run my career as a business.
