    Hey there John! Brand new to the circle, but can’t wait to dive into this wealth of information! Thank you!

    • Hi Shawn,

      Welcome to the Insider Circle! As you can see there is already plenty of content here, aside from the updates you can expect monthly.

      Feel free to create a forum thread if you ever need any feedback on your marketing and please let us know if we can ever help with anything.

    Hi John & team. Long-standing MMM member here. I was hoping you could help! I’ve used Page expiration robot for a few years & it’s always worked well.. until I noticed that my sales had slacked off & it turns out it was no longer working! I spent some time migrating to their new system, but the shortcode just doesn’t work. Their customer care sucks and I’ve had no reply from them.
    So – I’ve tried a whole bunch of other timers and none have done what I need them to do. I’ve temporarily put in the Evergreen plugin, but it looks awful – especially on mobile. Some online solutions seem inordinately expensive (ie cost per campaign!) and I don’t want to spend money on anything until I know it works and looks right. I was hoping you’s be able to recommend a solution… Many thanks in advance.

  • Havell Teylar says:

    Have you added a new monthly video for December 2016 or January 2017? If so, Im not seeing them when i login

    • Hi Havell,

      Steve here. Let me reach out to John to check the status of these for you.

      Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hey Havell,

      My apologies. I am behind on the lessons at the moment due to a few unforeseen events. However I am working on them now and they should both be published shortly and the members area will be all caught up.

      Thanks for your patience.

      • Brent Johnston says:

        Hi John, I noticed that you recently posted new training module up for the month of January. I’m just wondering why I didn’t receive an email notification about it? Also I’m unable to access it when I click the link in the “monthly training” sidebar. Can you help me out with that?

        Also, just like Havell Teylar, I’ve been wondering why you haven’t been posting monthly modules. I think for most of us here that is a significant reason why we pay for the Insider’s Circle. I’m surprised that only me and Havell have mentioned this.

        The other thing I wanted to mention is that I haven’t been able to download most of the monthly training videos since I joined the IC again from around September 2016. When I was an IC member a few years ago I had no problem doing that.

        I hope you can help me with my questions. Thanks.

        • Hi Brent,

          Steve here. We did have an issue with the permission settings for the January lesson, but you should be able to access it now without issue.

          Also, we just checked our Insider Circle notification list and you are subscribed to receive member updates via email. You might check to see if the notifications have gone to your junk folder.

          John did get a bit behind on lessons, but is getting caught up. The February Lessons is taking place right now and the replay will be available shortly. You can also listen in here:
          http://events.iteleseminar.com/?eventID=95611791

          March will be coming up very soon.

          As far as download, only the most recent lesson is available for download. The previous ones are not. This has always been this way.

          Let us know if we can ever help with anything else.

  • Ryan Caldwell says:

    Hey John, I’ll be watching and learning from you all the way over in New Zealand. In this part of the world, people always think we are too far away from “the scene” to be able to get noticed and accrue fans. Do you agree with this and perhaps I need to move to California or something, or can it be overcome in the digital age?
    Thanks, Ryan

    • Hi Ryan,

      Welcome to the Insider Circle!

      One of things John states in his marketing for his courses is that because this model for selling is strictly an online one, you can still sell music without touring or playing live. Of course both of those can enhance your experience with this process, as well as your results, but neither is required.

      Please enjoy the member content and let us know if we can ever help with anything.

  • Sali Bracewell says:

    Hello everyone!

    Hi I’m Sali, I’m currently researching ways to market my e.p which I released last month entitled “human”. I’m a classically trained pianist and singer, Welsh and living in Australia. My e.p has emerged as a rather ambient haunting affair, though for live performances I like to keep it light! Love to connect with you all, I’m a friendly girl! So feel free to say hi!

  • Mia Kylie Ditta says:

    Hi Mr. John,

    My name is Mia Kylie Ditta I am a singer/songwriter and the founder of the Mia Kylie Band out of New Orleans, LA. We play a variety of music from 80’s rock to current dance music and everything in between. We perform at festivals throughout the Greater New Orleans area, Texas, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. At age 13 I wrote, helped produce, and released a solo Pop CD called “RISE”. I have 3 songs from that CD on the Euro Indie music top 100, including my song Pop Star which is currently at #75. I am continuously writing new music and will be heading back into the studio soon to record songs for a movie and I am collaborating with other song writers to sing and record their music. If anyone is looking for a young up and coming female singer who is a positive role model, I would be honored to work with you. You can contact me through my website at http://www.miakylie.com and I am on twitter @miakylieditta and Facebook, search Mia Kylie. I am ready to kick my music career in to high gear and look forward to learning your program.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

    Sincerely,

    Mia Kylie Ditta

    I’ve been following you for a while and just signed up for the insider circle and the music ad workshop.

  • Kolayah Israel says:

    Wat it do guys…. I am Prophet Kolayah. I’m a righteous hip-hop artist growing and learning as I expand my gift. I been here for at least 3 months and have been slacking on the insider circle. No excuses though busy with life as any other artist, but have the strong desire to live off of my music and say the hell with everything else. I have refocused and pushing myself to take it to the next level though this course and training. Been paying for it right.. Lol.. Anyway, looking forward to connecting and build and profitable brand and business… Out…….. Prophet Kolayah……….

    Hello from Manchester 🙂

    I’ve just joined and am very excited to have found a community outside of the traditional corporate music business model who get what I’ve been championing and aspiring to build on for quite some time now. I realised an album in June with some limited sales and want to build on this (don’t we all).

    I look forward to communicating with you all.

    Just signed up for MMM and the Insider Circle.

    I play bass in a jam band about to release our second recording (this time the right way, thanks to MMM), and have a catalog of recordings from past bands I’m hoping to do something with.

    Very excited to learn from you all, and share my experiences as well!

  • jonny Gunton says:

    Hello one and all
    Signed up and looking forward to gaining knowledge on how to get the music out there.
    Have been making music with a wonderful Danish singer, I am based in the UK. We have those logistical issues so live stuff is hard. We have only met twice and one of those times was to gig. Anyone interested here is a link http://drom-music.com

    Nice one

    Jonny

    • Hi Jonny,

      Welcome to Insider Circle! We appreciate you jpining us here.

      given what you’ve said about the remote nature of how you are creating music, we believe you will benefit from many of the lessons you find here.

      That said, we do understand that much of what you are doing is under circumstances where playing live isn’t always possible, in which case, feel free to ask questions in the forum, if you feel like you need some insight from the group.

      Let us know if we can ever help with anything as well.

  • Mark Featherstone says:

    Well, I have never done the Insider before, but I’m familiar with the Manifesto. Here goes nothing.

    • Hi Mark,

      Welcome to Insider Circle. We’re sure you’ll find these lessons to be a nice supplement to the MMM Strategy. We hope you enjoy them all and that we’ll also see you over in the forum from time to time.

      Please let us know if we can ever help with anything.

  • IndieBob says:

  • jaen * says:

    Hi John and everyone,

    I’m new here and looking forward to absorbing it all and making some new stuff happen. I’ve had some success with songwriting awards, released two indie albums, an ep and had my music licensed in tv and indie films, but never with a well-rounded plan. I just hit the ground running, put in a bit of hard worked and reaped some rewards. I also fell on my face a few times too. I’m here because I want to approach things differently this time and in this current music biz climate I feel we kinda have to. It’s exciting and scary and all that jazz.

  • Ray McGee says:

    Hey Everyone!
    My name is Ray McGee and I’m very excited to be here! I joined today. John, thank you for sending the emails. Honestly, I was very reluctant to venture into this because of so many shady things out there nowadays but after I listened to the Live Music Marketing Q&A – it gave me all the security I needed – I’m ALL in! Thank you for taking time to share that information and doing what you do.
    To be brief, I started my own label “Garage Music Tx” a little while back. It really happened out of nowhere. My son wanted to rap – he loves to do – I wanted to support him. I wanted to be involved and around to keep him encouraged – to remember YOU BE YOU- you make your kind of music – you don’t have to do what everybody else does (The rap game is a beast and it’s easy to loose who you are because you want to please the main stream).
    So I made booth in the garage, bought some software, mic, got some beats and to make a long story even shorter – he’s evolved into Canon Flames, an artist – not just a rapper. Whatever he puts his mind too – he owns it – poetry, rap, national speaking conferences for his school. But when it comes to this rap thang – he’s very good (not saying that because he’s my kid). He’s better at it than I am at running a label, engineering the tracks, marketing, CD covers, going to work full time and all the other stuff I have to do 🙂 – so I’m here to learn and network and live life!
    I have a few other artists that feel our vision too which is cool but for now – I’m really focused on learning as much as I can to get better. So I can help all of them. I really think joining up with you is going to be one of the best decisions I’ve made so far.

    Thank again
    Ray McGee

    Hi John and the other insiders! I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally be here. I have already learned so much from the MMM podcast as well as the blueprint video.

    Hey there.

    I’m on board. I manage my daughter, a 20 year old singer-songwriter from The UK Essex http://georgia-ukartist.com . I have formed a label for the benefit of our publisher. She has an EP due out on Sept 16th and an album next year. In the meantime, and as a lifelong business entrepreneur I’m attempting to form a viable business model for my daughter/artist that generates an income so she can self finance and obtain a legitimate income.

    Hi Guys.. I just signed up.. I’m a solo artist Haas (www.haasmusic.net) about to release my debut album.. I call the genre psychedelic folk rock.

    Cheers!
    Eric

    • Hi Eric,

      Welcome to Insider Circle! The MMM strategy is ideal for artists who are looking for a strictly online model because it doesn’t require touring or airplay, although those things do complement the strategy. Enjoy the monthly updates and feel free to start a thread in the forum if you need any feedback on your marketing at all.

    Thanks!

  • Devon Brown says:

    And here I am in the Insider Circle. So much to jump into between the MMM site and this one. Here, should we begin from the most recent training and work down? I only ask because, especially with Facebook trainings, the tech discussed could already be outdated.

    I look forward to absorbing all of this until my eyes bleeeeed!

    Thanks,

    Devon

    • Hi Devon,

      Welcome to the Insider Circle! Yes, you definitely want to download the latest lesson because when the next is released, you won’t be able to download previous lessons. You’re absolutely right about third-party sites like Facebook. Things can change rather quickly.

      Please let us know if we can ever help with anything.

  • kidhomeslice says:

    Hi Jon!

    I’ve been a proud MMMer since January, and I find the info and insight priceless. But I’m still working on the songs, which will be professionally produced and mastered on the Left Coast — I’m in NYC. So I don’t have songs to give away on my squeeze page. I have the rough mixes and demos and other experiments via iPhone GarageBand, but that stuff isn’t flattering. The planned release date is this summer. Should I wait until I have a final song / single to launch the MMM onslaught? Or how can I start to build my story now with nothing to give?

    Thank you for this program — a smarter way to work.

    kH

    • Hi KH,

      Welcome to Insider Circle! Happy to see you joining us all in the members area.

      Regarding your funnel, you’ll definitely want to have something of value to offer, so you can begin building a list ahead your album release. This can mean waiting until you have a polished track, or you can use what you have and start there. You never know, people might respond well to the demos and really anticipate the studio release.

      Please let us know if we can ever help with anything else.

  • Dave Wilson says:

    Hi John and members, I hope to make the most of everything offered here, contributing and getting to know everyone. To let you know where I’m at, I’ve been through the MMM course and have my site and sales funnel set up. I currently have my ads paused, though converting well the squeeze/landing page is not. So that’s the step I’m working currently. I’m happy to be here and ready to get to it. – Dave

    I bid you greetings and felicitations from the great northern Utah!

    I am a full time multi instrumentalist specializing in the harp. I play Jazz, Folk, Celtic and Gypsy music. I fuse it all together into something I like to call renaissance gumbo.

    After years of getting my butt kicked, reading and studying about marketing only to get information overload, buying programs that were incomplete and full of holes, getting ripped off by sleazy marketers, I have found the light!

    MMM has been a God send!! My new site and funnel system is up after only a week and a half and I am already planning an up sell subscription based web site =0

    Thank you so much! John, your program is worth so much more than I paid and I would have paid more for it. Now all I have to do is fine tune my traffic system.

    Again, Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    • Hi Aaron,

      Welcome to insider Circle. Congratulations on getting your funnel up and running and we’re very happy that you’ve found your way here as well.

Can’t wait to get started!

  • Sharon Hawn says:

    Hi everyone! I’m Sharon Hawn a former child performer who knew at age 11, when I walked on Stage to sing with The Carpenters, I knew then that I belonged in the music business. My career came to a halt when I found myself in a hospital with my jaw wired shut, with no facial function on my 21st Birthday.

    Several years later I tried to return; however I was faced with painful facial spasms by muscle fatigue, causing me to think my days singing were over. Now fully recovered, I’m back with my first single ‘Gotta Be Free’ released about four months ago. To my surprise with the Internet and new ways to work the business, I’m seeing immediate results, gaining a following and selling my single.

    I am so happy to be joining you all here in the inner circle and hearing all about the incredible success stories we are having with Music Manifesto.

    Hey John,

    I just joined Insider Circle after taking your courses Record Release Formula and Music Marketing Manifesto 3.0. Awesome stuff in your courses, and it is starting to work for me! I’m looking forward to a good experience here.

    The one thing I have the biggest problem with is figuring out which artists I sound like! I’m a multi-instrumentalist and I play all the instruments on my recordings. The closest genre that I can be classified under is Ambient Pop Instrumental (or Contemporary Instrumental), which is definitely a niche market. If you could have a quick listen to some of my sample songs and give me some idea of who I sound like, I would be forever in your debt. There are a few of my songs at this link: http://www.svensundberg.net/sample-tracks-from-intimacy-cd/

    Anyone, feel free to listen and help me out. I’d hate to waste more money targeting the wrong groups of people. The good news is that my squeeze page is converting at 23%, I just need more of the right traffic. Thank you for anything you can do, and I am happy to be an IC member.

    Hello All
    My name is Rene Collins! I’ve been in the business for more than 30 years and still struggling. I am very excited about the mastermind and learning marketing techniques John is teaching. It’s good just to have some kind of approach the at least makes me feel I have some control in the industry.
    My music is a mix of polyrhthmic reggae with fiddle with positive lyrics! Still trying to find my tribe in this market and I hope I’ll be able to nail that down through this process.
    I also, look forward to meeting and connecting with all of you. I hope we can lift each other up.
    Thank John for creating this opportunity!
    Sincerely,
    Rene Collins

    Hello, John (and fellow Music Marketing Manifesto members)!

    My name is Ron Tippin. I have been in the music business for 35 years now, with varying degrees of success.

    In the effort to figure out how best to market my music in the Internet age, I have been studying music marketing for the last few years. I’ve read many of the latest books, (‘Your Band is a Virus’, ‘The Indie Band Survival Guide’, ‘Musicpreneur’, ‘The New Rockstar Philosophy’, ‘Get More Fans: The DIY Guide to the New Music Business’, etc.), followed blogs, listened to podcasts, etc.

    Being a 47 year-old musician, I’ve had to battle some of the “am I too old to make a real go of this?” demons, and was quite taken with your program’s “direct-to-fan” approach.
    I’ve been following your podcasts, blogs, interviews, etc. for some time now, and decided a few months ago that I would pull the trigger on MMM come January 1st, 2016. Well, that day is here, and, as you can see, I have indeed pulled the trigger!

    Anyway, I just wanted to say hello, and thank you for what you’re offering here. The value I’ve gotten so far, before even purchasing the MMM, has been immense. I appreciate that you are a musician yourself, with a great track record of successful endeavors, and this gives me the confidence that you “get it” on a musician’s level and empathize with the modern-day indie artist.

    That being said, I’ve come to understand that effective marketing is the vital component to making one’s original music a viable enterprise, and I feel optimistic and empowered that I’ve made a good, well-researched investment in my music’s future.

    So, again, from my deepest hopes and aspirations: THANK YOU. I look forward to getting on with the work ahead, as I know it will, at long last, have the key element of a proven, focused strategy my efforts have thus far been missing.

    Let’s do this! 🙂
