NEED A MANAGER?

How to Choose the Right Manager

 What exactly does a manger do?

 A manager should be working in your best interests. Not only does this benefit the manager, whose commission increases the more the artist earns, but its his job! Your manager should be a hard working, well-known, and well connected representative on your behalf. The manager’s duties include: providing guidance and counsel to the artist, legally representing the artist, and finding the most lucrative and productive deals available to that artist. Basically, they handle your business for you.

 Who should I hire?

 You should hire someone experienced to manage your deals. An inexperienced manager, like a friend or family member, may lack the necessary skills needed to fully leverage your artistry. They may also lack the industry contacts to get you major placements. Make sure that you check the credentials of a potential manager and see who they’ve managed in the past or who they are currently managing. Get someon who knows what he’s doing.

 How does the manager get paid?

 Managers get paid by commission. Now, how much commission they receive depends on the experience and reputation of the manager. If the manager has plenty of industry experience and a good track record, then you can expect a commission rate around 20%. However, if the manager is relatively new, then a 10% pay rate is acceptable. If you find yourself among the top level managers in the industry, those who have worked with superstar artists, then don’t be shocked by a 30% commission rate which should also give you an idea of the type of service you can expect. So, whatever deals the manager gets you, they take a percentage of the earnings.

 Anything else?

 If you happen to be one of those lucky artists who already have managers making offers and promises, don’t rush to sign the first contract available. Often artists are too eager to make a deal and end up signing a contract that may not be the best deal possible. If you have several offers, look at them and consider the benefits of each manager and each deal and choose the one that benefits you the most. Let them compete for you.

HOW TO FLIP THE SCRIPT!!!

Fighting Piracy By Encouraging BOOTLEGGING:
_________________________________________

Piracy can be negative but THE BEST music artist and G3KBEATS know that it can be positive!
If your music gets pirated you can spend alot of time and money TRYING
to prevent the spread OR You can give new value to potential customers that would turn them to paying users.
Pricing and Value is the name of the game when going against pirates.
You can add more value with exclusive content(tracks, videos, pics, etc…) that can
 convert listeners, bootleggers as well as downloaders to buyers.

What sounds easier:
stop making your music, finding them, suing them,
removing your music of shelves, changing content,
Or
bringing bootleggers and new fans closer to your music
and getting known even more

MUSIC WANTS TO BE FREE!
Its the best alternative for consumers who want to hear your music

Bootlegging spreads your music, sound, style plus NAME to other venues and increases your presence in the music business. Its like free promotion and the bootleggers are your street team!
KEEP IN MIND:
YOU can always perform Concerts. Music consumers are more willing to pay high prices for
concert tickets than music content.

WHY?
THE EXPERIENCE, ITS LIVE!
Thats something the bootleggers can’t give, a value thats at your disposal!
fans can’t pass it up.

most importantly/ dont forget
to always make great music thats high quality, rich,
then finding ways to get known directly and indirectly.

GET PAYED!, WITH ATTENTION!
