Here's something new from Gaymonkey. Something we're very pleased to be able to ship to the world ...
Over the past few years it has become clear that the biggest issue facing the music industry is not piracy. It's not the collapse of major labels, or the recession damaging retail sales. And it certainly isn't the public devaluing music.
The biggest issue facing the new music industry is that artists do not believe that they can make their careers happen.
We know they can.
That is why we have put together the Manifesto for a 21st Century Music Industry. It outlines a vision for a direction for the new industry, and a way for artists to have ultimate control of their own careers.
The Manifesto sets out the Fundamentals of this new industry - the foundation of what must change to reposition the relationships within the business. We set out three key steps for artists to help them take control. And we bust some myths that pinpoint areas that are blocking artists from reaching their new potential.
The Manifesto is an ebook that is free for everyone to download. I'll use this blog to further delve into the key points that make up the book. And I'd love to hear your feedback - so please download, enjoy, share it - and let me know what you think.
The new industry is exciting, and our potential is now limitless. We just need to make it happen.
