    Just what I’ve been looking for! I’m a dedicated producer/artist who needs to be printed in the right direction to get my music outside my city.

  • Ppurple Ffrog says:

    I have alot of music..how do i make money with it

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Ppurple Ffrog,

      Thanks for getting in touch. The strategy is outlined in the video, but in a nutshell the idea is to intentionally target your most likely music buyers and then to make them a compelling free offer to get some of your music for free in exchange for signing up to your email list.

      Through email not only can you keep your music in front of them, but actually build a real relationship with your “tribe” of subscribers, so that you actually have some influence over their decision to buy, when you ask them to. With this approach your sales numbers will be in direct proportion to the number of people you have on your list.

      Let me know if I can ever help with anything else.

  • Tim Byrd says:

    I can relate to a degree, record companies became way more corporate and not relatable. Sorry to say both industries are suffering desperately and not headed in the right direction. Both industries being records and broadcasting(radio & tv)

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Tim,

      Yes, there has definitely been a shift and I think the record industry is still just doing what it knows best. They have a lot of failures, but usually one big success can cover them up.

    • sue Lewis says:

      I have an earlier version. Can I get an update on this course for free or a discount?

      • John Oszajca says:

        Hi Sue,

        MMM 3.0 and MMM 4.0 are completely different products so there is no automatic free upgrade. That said, anyone who ordered within 90 days of the release of MMM 4.0 did get a free upgrade because of the close proximity of the orders. If you are unsure if you meet this criteria send an email to support@musicmarketingmanifesto.com.

        All the best.

  • Domingo says:

    Can I hire you to set up shop for me?

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Domingo,

      Thanks for your interest and for getting in touch. I did recently start an agency to run promotions for artists who would rather keep to more the creative side of things. Reach out to me at john@musicmarketingmanifesto.com with the subject line DTFI and I’m happy to send you more information on it.

      Thanks!

  • Charles saulsberry says:

    Hey I am very interested in this but I am lil lost does make you a label or independent

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Charles,

      Thanks for your interest. No, I’m not a label. I provide educational material for independent artists, to help them successfully market and sell their music online.

        Hi I’m African artist can you help me my name is Georgette Adjie from Cameroon but I’m American citizen

  • Frank says:

    Hi John, great video and it is nice to see someone that is in the music industry giving back a little and helping us less fortunate musicians.

    Anyway, I just recently released two tracks and haven’t got the traction i would of liked. I got great feedback, but not the exposure. Not sure what to do, its very frustrating and it makes you think, is this something i should keep on doing.

    Any input is much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Frank

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Frank,

      Thanks for your interest.

      The thing about exposure is that it can require a lot of resources to obtain the kind of exposure that eventually leads to you reaching that “tipping point” in market saturation, where people automatically think of you when they are buying music.

      Generally speaking, most independent artists do not have the resources to even come close to that level of exposure, the way a major artist does. For this reason, it’s better to focus not on exposure in general, but rather targeting the audience of people that would be most likely to buy your music. From there you’d want to follow the steps outlined in this video to get them onto your email follow-up, so that you can both build a real relationship with your subscribers, but also keep your music in front of them. This affords you the opportunity to make tailored offers to people and use the direct response selling “triggers” to help move people off of the fence and to buy from you.

      People tend to buy from major acts based on that market saturation and name recognition, whereas people buy from independent artists because they feel they have a relationship and sense of tribe with you, and because they genuinely want to support your career.

  • Hello, I was wondering if you can help me with how to distribute artist under my own LLC or publishing just because I use ingroove now! And I also have all kinds of style of music including gospel and much more been in the music business for over 29 years as a producer singer and songwriter but very short in the business itself I do have LLC and Publishing ready just need a little push and what else I need to get all these artists old out there. Can you help? 😉

  • Amore says:

    Hi can I sell gospel songs and if yes please how do I start.

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Amore,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Yes, you can use this process to sell any genre, assuming there is a market for the type of music you create. Gospel music traditionally has a fairly strong market. To sell to that market, you’d first want to target fans of gospel and advertise to only them. Then try to get them onto your email follow up list, like I describe in the video, so that you can keep your music in front of them, build a relationship with them and eventually ask them to buy.

      With this strategy your sales numbers will be in direct proportion to the size of your subscriber list.

  • Joe Silva says:

    Hello John. I know some modern day hit makers waiting to be discovered and would really like to help them. I am also a lyricist looking to market my songs and if I can help promote different genres of music I would love to. Thanks

  • Jean-Pierre says:

    I surely would like to get the book cause my concern is to help many talented singers in Africa.

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Jean-Pierre,

      Thanks for your interest and I think it’s cool that you’d like to help local singers. I just wanted to clarify that MMM 4.0 isn’t a book. In fact it’s not a physical product to be shipped out to you. Rather MMM 4.0 is a digital product, consisting of many lessons and video modules, all offered within an interactive members area, right here on the MMM site.

      I just wanted to make you aware that nothing physical actually gets mailed out to you. Instead after you complete your order, you’ll be taken to the registration page for the members area. Once registered you’ll have access to all of the lessons and videos.

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Lee,

      Thanks for reaching out. My apologies, but it’s not clear what you’re asking about. What exactly is it that you don’t you know how it’s possible?

      Let me know and I’m happy to try to help.

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for your interest and I’m glad you enjoyed the video.

      I can completely understand that it’s difficult starting out on a small budget. That’s one of the reasons I advocate this strategy for marketing and selling music because the advertising budget does easily fall into the average independent artist’s means and you can actually see where things are working or not, so that you can make improvements and get better results.

      Keep an eye on your inbox because I’ll definitely be sending out more free and actionable content.

  • Paul Barrett says:

    Hey John. I want to applaud you for providing this service for artists like myself. I have been to the ASCAP convention in Hollywood and spoke to alot of industry people. It seems the music business has changed so mush, that no one I spoke with had a clear strategy to market new artists. I will contact you regarding my rock project entitled “One World Government” which has been doing well out there but sales have been minimal. Thanks again John.

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your interest and for the kind words. Yes, over the last few years a lot of the industry has been throwing mud at the wall to see what sticks. I prefer the strategy I’m teaching because it is time tested to reliably produce positive results, but mostly because it puts the control back into the hands of the artist.

  • Bennie Perry says:

    Is there any financial conditions

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Bennie,

      This video is absolutely free, but yes I do have a few paid courses. There are also some other expenses, which are just the cost of doing business.

      These are generally web hosting, a web domain, an autoresponder service and anything you spend on paid advertising.

    Would like to know what all information

  • how you doing my name is Sheldon Maxwell and I am reaching out because I’ve been actually promoting for 7 years I am on the internet all over the place .you can Google Max 41414there is a lot of music videos and more stuff on the networkI think that I’m doing something wrong so can you please give me some advice if you don’t mind thank you

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Sheldon,

      Thanks for your interest and for getting in touch.

      Yes, the basic outline of the marketing strategy I teach and recommend is featured in this video. The primary thing to focus on is to start trying to get your traffic onto an email subscriber list, so that you can keep your music in front of them and build some influence over their decision to buy from you, when you ask them to.

      for the rest of the content you have out there, those things can go a long way in helping you build that relationship with your subscribers and the influence over their buying decision.

  • Fred Darling says:

    Sorry for the misspell John this auto type is a little slow what I meant to ask you was what does your company cover as far as Outsourcing to find an effective Music Manager and A&R in my local area that seems to be one of the things we are lacking

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Fred,

      Thanks for your interest and for getting in touch. While my MMM 4.0 course does not cover what you are asking about, it covers effectively marketing and selling your music online.

      That said, the best way to attract A&R reps or labels is to show them that you can sell music independently.

  • Fred Darling says:

    Hey John came across the site and was very intrigued there should be platforms like this all across the music board especially for young and upcoming artists and entrepreneurs in the music field had a quick question does your program cover how I audition the G defy themselves dealing with music managers and A&R

    • John Oszajca says:

      Hi Ernest,

      Thanks for your interest and for reaching out.

      My general recommendation is to follow the steps laid out in this video. Obviously there’s a good bit of how-to that comes along with setting up this type of system, much more than can fit into one single video, but the general strategy is to target and advertise to your most likely buyers, get them into email follow-up via a free offer, so that you can build a relationship with them, keep your music in front of them and eventually make them a strong offer to buy your music.

      With this approach your sales numbers will be in proportion to the number of people you have on your subscriber lists.

      Let me know if I can ever help with anything else.
