279 – Marketing is Fun

by | Nov 3, 2022 | Podcast

Do you find marketing boring, complicated, challenging, difficult, tedious, irritating, or otherwise unappealing?

Hey, I get it. I was once a musician just like you…

(Wait, hold on, I’m still a musician just like you.)

I’ve said before that you are the most qualified person to do your own marketing, and I still believe that…

But I also think it can be A LOT of fun! Honestly, if it’s not fun, you’re probably overthinking the process or trying to be a perfectionist.

It might sound crazy, but the only thing separating you from the best marketers is that they got started and stayed started.

There’s not a whole lot to it – make your best guesses as to what your audience will respond to, throw a bunch of stuff against the wall, notice what sticks, and track what works! The best marketers don’t have a more detailed plan than that.

In this episode of The New Music Industry Podcast, David shares how to make marketing more fun.
