    4P's & a S .... Keys to Success in the Music Biz

    Progression, Production, Presentation, Promotion, & Sacrifice

    Progression - that means whatever you do make sure that it is critical to the growth of your business and or talent in some way, shape, or form. Like reading your manuals, studying music business, marketing, or learning to play an instrument ...etc.
    Those things will help you grow and give you better understand of the industry ...and ultimately contribute to the success of your ventures.

    Production- making music.... you need to have material. Not only to showcase your talent ...but to gage growth. If there is no product, you have a problem.

    You need material to pitch to folks ....so Produce!

    Presentation - You have to present yourself and product in a professional manner. Remember that consumers love a nice looking package. That's how you draw attention to your product and or brand. Some people sell albums just off of cover art alone.

    Then Promotion.... Your mouth ( no homo ) and the Internet are your biggest promotional tools.

    Close mouth don't get fed .... get out there ... put your music out there .... Network... TALK.... if you don't do that ... let me tell you... you could well be the next QUINCEY JONES and no one will ever know, if they don't hear you or your work.

    And Sacrifice... I've been there.... when I was sleeping in my car after Katrina hit ... I was still making beats and writing songs... in my car ....I did that for 3 months.... I got a ton of sacrifice stories... but you can't be lazy in this game... and you got to make due with what you have.

    There are no excuses.... the reason why you are not moving in the industry ...will 9 times out of 10 be because of you lacking in some of theses areas...... No one is perfect, but the closer you get... the better off you will be.


    So let me beat it in your minds ....Progression, Production, Presentation, Promotion, and Sacrifice.

    Thank you. For those who read this thread. Obviously this is only met to inform and motivate those who are trying to get into music on a professional level. This advice works, I've watch countless acts from Houston to New Orleans to Miami to Atlanta do this. Is it a complete guide? No Can this apply to anything you do? Yes. But I hope to get this thread stickied so we as an online community can elaborate on this subject.

    I personally for the last 3 years have had no desire to get on with any major artist or label. And I encourage our future producers to go the independent route. But for those who are seeking success with their music.. be it independent or major ..... You need to structure you product in a form such as I have written above. Remember this is all opinion and you can take or omitted whatever you like. But lets continue to elaborate and educated one another in this thread.
