So maybe you’re here looking at BadRacket.com because you want to record here. Maybe you’ve already recorded here. Maybe you’ve never recorded here and don’t have any desire to – you’re just checking out this fancy new website.
Either way, you’re probably here because recording music is of interest to you.
Did you know that your time in the studio results in a product that opens many different streams of revenue for you and/or your band?
I’m not just talking about making a record to sell at your shows or sell on iTunes…although that’s part of it. There’s an entire industry waiting out there that you should know about.
Whether you’re just doing music as a hobby or hoping to make it big someday, there are a ton of things about the music industry that you really should know if you’re going to spend your time, money, and energy to create music.
There are some very simple things that you can be doing to protect your music, generate more money, and propel your career.
In the weeks and months to come I’ll be contributing to BadRacket.com to share a little bit about each aspect of the music industry with you. Hopefully each post will give you some knowledge that will lead you to a better music career, and if nothing else, more money earned from having fun and doing what you love – playing music.
So here’s what’s to come:
