This week, Ryan answers a listener question about growing your social media following, which then led to another question: What should you focus on more as an artist, increasing your following or investing in the following you already have? Ryan discusses this topic by referencing a recent article in TuneCore Blog by Suzanne Paulinski (aka “The Rock Star Advocate”) entitled “The One Place Your Focus Should Always Be”. You can check out the article here: www.tunecore.com/blog/2018/07/the…d-always-be.html.
Ryan also sits down this week with Chris Brereton, the President and CPO of Thematic. Thematic is a peer-to-peer platform that connects video creators to music artists to help the former license music from the latter. Chris talks about Thematic and gives us some tips on how to connect to YouTube artists to get licensing opportunities for your music. Find out more about Thematic by visiting www.hellothematic.com.
