Now, although you may have heard about going independent or getting independent distribution you have to ask yourself what does "GOING INDEPENDENT" mean? Does it mean Producing, Pressing and Promoting your Product and making massive PROFITS? You're right! And we do it is not unique, but for us to work as a team in a system for artists who choose this path is. Right now, we are in the position that many have wanted to be in but who are too afraid to do because they either don't have the will, tenacity, focus or network to do it and so going independent is not for the weak or faint, but for those who are willing to build something from the ground up that will last for a lifetime as well as a few generations.
Certainly the people who incorporated many businesses in America are no longer alive, but their families have benefited throughout the ages because those brave, smart and courageous men and women made it possible.
We can no longer sit by and say that we don't have time, money, resources, the right address or any kind of stumbling block. If you're looking for the stumbling block you only need to look in the mirror in the eyes of the person who's making the excuses.
What I want us to do by the time we finish this article is to TAKE ACTION! Swift and immediate action that will change not only the industry, but that will change you and your fans.
A few years ago I was wondering what I could do to get back on my feet in the entertainment industry. I had some nominal success with sending out various artists' packages to my international contacts who were looking for new music or new faces, but it wasn't until I took my own advice and went back to the basics of delivering my passion to the people that I became a better success and rediscovered what made me love this industry.
As a young college student I was introduced to radio. A small community station in Worcester, MA (WCUW-91.3fm) is where I got my start and what I learned in my 3 years as an undergraduate small time dj at a little dinky place was actually the womb that eventually birthed QMediaNation Radio Online. It was great fumbling through records of artists I had never heard of; going to the studio day and night to set up a program; interviewing interesting people; and more importantly, running a first rate show that even today is some of my best work.
Over the years I went from job to job and even countries to find myself, my passion and what really I could do that would earn me a living yet all in all I kept that passion for radio in my heart. I stayed in contact with folks in the entertainment industry and even did some work as an artist, but when I returned to radio almost 10 years after my college days to the same station it was then that I knew it was to be a life long mission. The only thing I didn't know was how to do it independently from anywhere in the world and that is when 10 years later internet radio took on shape for the world.
Now, here it is 2011 and we're on the fast track to helping others in this new and non-traditional marketing medium that is changing the lives and careers of countless artists.
