REAL-DEAL Music Marketing Big-Brain, Spills The Beans!

Download Audio Version

I got an email from an old friend the other day.

Ian Clifford from the wonderful Make It In Music Blog

He’s one of about five “weirdos” in the world who loves marketing as much as he loves music, which means over the past 20 years he’s become someone you need to learn from.

Turns out he’s been quietly working away on a snazzy smartphone app built just for you.

Because it will create all your album artwork in minutes without any design skills needed.

So I sensed an opportunity…

What I thought was…

“let’s get him on the phone to talk about the app then I will use psychological mind control to have him spill the beans on all the tricks he is using to help major labels sell more records”

My plan worked way better than I thought…

…because The app itself is amazingly useful…

… and he was in fact more than happy to share everything he knows about music marketing with you guys for free. No brain tricks needed.

So watch the video above, and then test yourself below and see how much you learned…

All the answers can be found in the interview above if you listen real hard.
