Are you sick of reading blogs?  I’ve got 2 podcasts for you!

Amongst all the pressure of social media, Spotify numbers, and live performance stands one of the most overlooked and powerful ways to make money as a musician  now and I have been interviewed on 2 great podcasts that you can dive into now.

Of course I’m talking about email on both podcasts.

An email list serves as a direct line of communication with fans, fostering deeper connections and meaningful engagement. It turns fans to superfans and offers you a way to share exclusive content, announce new releases, promote merch, and even successfully crowdfund projects.

Now when was the last time your social media did that?

And yet, the email list is still so misunderstood

So, I’m sharing two of my favorite podcasts where I dive deep on the step by step of how to build an email list so you can get started ASAP and start seeing the benefits.

Podcast 1 – How to Launch and Manage a Successful Email List with Ariel Hyatt (The Jazz Spotlight Podcast w/ Yannick Ilunga)

A few years ago I was a guest on the fantastic Jazz Spotlight Podcast, and the advice in this podcast is still very relevant.

We discuss how having a newsletter is a must for every musician. Yes, a newsletter is still crucial.

I have recently also been talking about email nurturing which is just as important as ever.
