IF you are going to kill the fan-funding feature (which couldn't be created through mobile / tablet means, and was painful for newbies, and didn't get much importance highlighted to mobile users), then PLEASE make the signup for patroners / donaters, UPFRONT, simple, fast and easy for donaters.

AND for the love of all that is holy, please make it EASILY accessible for not only mobile users to make payments, BUT for broadcasters to receive payments (and setup and track from mobile apps).

AND make the superchat API EASILY accessible for OBS and thirdparty streaming services to setup their own streams and to get paid from third party youtube live providers :)

Thank you! Much love. See you at the YOUTUBE Space LA soon...

Location doesn't fix everything!

There is no magical location that will automatically make you a success.

#location #prepare #music #business
Your problems, issues, weaknesses and strengths will follow you!

The idea of moving to a city like ‪‎Nashville, ‎LA, ‎New York City or any of the major cities to make it can be foolish. Get your self as prepared as possible with everything you can organize before trying for a larger market. More artists, musicians and entertainers are going bankrupt after thinking they just need to be in this big city or that big city.

You have the world at your fingertips by being in a more affordable market. Finding a market that can help you get to more markets is going to help you ten fold. Get over the idea of being found in this city or by that person and get in to the idea of finding the best ways to ‎connect, ‎network, ‎engage and create the foundation of your music. So you can reach as many people as possible all around the world.

Review contracts before you sign them!

Take the time to review all contracts. You have no one but yourself to blame for the consequences.

#contracts   #consequences   #smart  
Read carefully before signing any contract!

Too many artists think they can back track or sue to get out of agreements that they signed if things go bad. While we side with the artists and want things to be more fair for artists. We also think that artists need to step up with a little more honor and have the honesty to pay for the mistakes they make, instead of making excuses to get out of them. 

Yes, the music business has its fair share of dirty individuals. If you don’t pay attention some one else can take advantage of you. It is crucial to look at every agreement or contract and have a lawyer review it before you sign. If you do not then you only have yourself to blame when things go bad.

Why beg? Your content should speak for itself.
Avoid begging for votes.

Entering contests over and over again, and  constantly asking for votes again and again is hurting more than helping. What you get from these contests is not enough to make up for the fans you are pushing away.

Content is king, not small contests that don't convert and pushes away the average fan. Work to connect with good content instead of begging for votes over and over again!

Partial attempts in anything you do, will only net you partial results in what you want to achieve.

Be patient and observe.

See how someone / something turns out over time before recommending them.

Read below:

#recommendation   #observe‬   #endorse‬  
Check things out, before endorsing them. 

Your word is your honor and reputation. If you want your word to hold true, wait before you praise and endorse. Check before you give a grade and look before you leap. 

Things can and in many cases still go bad anyways, but taking the time to check something out yourself for a while, before recommending it, is only going to make your recommendations and what you stand behind that much more solid. 

The point is, Let things prove themselves over time and over repetition and make sure there is enough proof, results and sustainability before you put your name on it or behind it.
