War Stories from the Music FrontEmail Lists, Domain Names, Logos, etc… Who has ownership of you?. Episode 6 of War Stories from the Music Front with Michael Brandvold and Loren Weisman.

Episode 6 of war stories stared around who owns what when it comes to email lists, but we went on to discuss who has ownership of what when it comes to email lists, domain names, logos, font, masters, copyrights, publishing and the list goes on and on.

Make sure when it comes to all those elements from your email lists to your masters and everywhere in between, make sue you own it or if some one else has control of it, make sure the contract, the usage and the profits that can come are clearly stated and understood by all parties.

Marketing Your Music Effectively and In the Most Professional Order.

War Stories from the Music FrontMarketing Your Music Effectively and In the Most Professional Order. Episode 5 of War Stories from the Music Front with Michael Brandvold and Loren Weisman.

Episode 5 of war stories looks at how bands are marketing and spending as well as in what order. While it is obvious that marketing your music is a crucial and fundamental part of getting the word and the songs out.

Still, when it comes to marketing your music, you have to put together the most professional plan you can, regardless of your budget with a music business plan and music marketing plan that considers what you are putting out, what you have already released and what you are doing next.

Michael talks a little about knowing when to Kill the Puppy and how things from the past can hurt the present when delivered in certain formats.

In the over-saturated music business of today, regardless of your budget, your team or your product, the presentation, promotion and order when you are working on marketing your music has got to be laid out in the most professional order to deliver the best results.
