They say that 80% of your time as a working artist should be spent on marketing. Since they don’t teach marketing at music or art school, you’ll need to learn how to do it on your own. Listen to Alyson B. Stanﬁeld’s Art Marketing Action Podcast for practical tips on blogging, giving presentations, showing your work, and more. It’s usually only 5-10 minutes long but packed with information, motivation, and sometimes even a kick in the butt. The podcast is geared toward visual artists, but musicians will ﬁnd almost every episode useful.
