Go Creative

Being an artist or writer or composer is not just about creating.  You have to take care of the business side of things as well.  For a songwriter, that means copyrighting your work, registering with BMI or Ascap, and making sales arrangements with CDBaby or another organization that provides sales and some merchandising.

I submitted 2020: The Musical songs to the Copyright office on June 15, 2019. Yesterday I registered the songs with BMI. And right now, as I write, I am uploading songs to CDBaby.

In the last week, I have completed song samplers and loaded them to my youtube channel. There are three samplers, each just under six minutes, which I will refer to in marketing packages I send out to interested parties. I have made periodic announcements about the show on Facebook and Linkedin groups as well as Facebook and Linkedin pages. This is a preliminary way to get information out to people who may have an interest in order to create buzz.

With these tasks behind me, I will move ahead and continue to put together the marketing strategy for the show.  There is a lot of contact information to gather and organize. I expect I will begin making calls to prospects next week. This will included political organizations and theaters.
