    5 Ways That Music Management Can Make Or Break Your Career
    By Billy Rock

    Music management may not be a high priority for you if your main objective is to play music, but it can literally make or break your career, no matter how devoted you are to the sound, the fans, and the lyrics. Improper management has killed many a promising career. So before you treat this area of your music as an afterthought, keep in mind the following ways that music management can be your undoing, or your ticket to the big time.

    First of all, musicians are good at what they do because they're tapped in to the creative side of their personalities. They are able to write and perform songs about life, love, tragedy, and a variety of other age old themes that provide a soundtrack to the lives of those who listen. But the reason they're so good at it is that they're not business people. Still, when it comes to promoting music, good management is what can make certain that your work reaches the widest audience. While you may not be doing it for the money, without capital, you won't be doing it at all. Musicians who realize the necessity of business, and seek professionals they can trust are the ones that get ahead.

    Secondly, music management professionals can recommend the best places to play and build an audience. Like real estate, music success can often be about location, location, location. If you're not targeting the audience that most wants to hear your style of play, then you are just making noise.

    Thirdly, proper music management can show bands how to produce the best quality in their recordings for wider distribution. With care disbursed intently to the way that a track is mastered, you can be certain that the major music outlets will provide a forum for your music. A management pro knows how to present your product to the most profitable media for your band.

    Fourthly, quality music management can guide you through the developing technologies out there such as social media, YouTube, and iTunes. These advancements have broken down the barrier between the artist and the audience, and if you know how to market yourself through them, you may not even need the help of a record label to make a full time living doing what you love the most.

    Finally, trusted music professionals are able to keep track of all the networking connections and interested parties, who may want your act to perform at their locations. Playing live for people is still the most profitable venue for a band. By helping you manage multiple facets of business, the manager can free you up to create a better product filled with more possibilities and profitable opportunities.

    Billy Rock is the leading provider of music management services. Get your music sounding good with professional music production for iTunes, AmazonMP3 and many more.

    A Message from the founder of EvO:R
    The Independent Music world has become so fragmented that anyone entering into this arena will be lost without having a chance of survival. What every independent musicians needs is information, understanding and a path that leads to success. Sure, you can buy a few books from authors that never played a note or loaded a single amp into a moving van. Pipe dreams are all over the Internet.

    At EvO:R we pride ourselves with sections dedicated to Independent Music News called (The EvO:R Street Journal), Musicians Success Stories and Tips called (EvO:R-pedia) and a Musicians Testimonial Section called (The Goods) dedicated to Internet based companies that deliver on their promises.
