NZ Music Managers Forum Announce ‘HOW TO MARKET AND PROMOTE YOUR MUSIC’ Seminar for New Plymouth

January 14th 2020
Following the outstanding success of the How To Make Money From Your Music series of seminars, the NZ Music Managers Forum, with thanks to NZ On Air, Recorded Music NZ, APRA AMCOS, NZ Music Commission and New Plymouth District Council Creative Communities Scheme are returning to Taranaki with the essential FREE Stage Two seminar, How to Market and Promote Your Music.

This not-to-be-missed seminar will cover all avenues of releasing, marketing and promoting music including the various ways to release a song, EP or album. Distribution – digital and physical, publicity, bio’s, press releases, tips for pitching to media, marketing, digital marketing, social media, playlists and radio airplay will all be covered in this two-hour session. 

How musicians release and promote contemporary music has changed considerably in the last couple of years, with an increased focus on digital platforms.  Over 70% of the New Zealand Music Industry income is from streaming, but an artist faces stiff competition, against all other artists, within the realms of the large worldwide digital stores. In order to cut through the noise, artists now need to be active across many promotional channels to drive awareness of their projects. With record labels signing fewer artists direct, it is important that managers and musicians learn these skills for the benefit of their independent releases.
