Producers, DJs, artists, and musicians, take note. At least to the first Q&A.
If the video below doesn’t play, check out the original here:
It seems so many people are set against giving away their stuff for free. Gary V hits it when he explains that giving away your work for free isn’t a bad idea IF you do it strategically.
Why try to charge somebody for a mix when there are so many more available online for free? It will most likely result in nobody hearing your mix.
If you’re a producer, why not make regular “freebies” to hook new listeners?
I’ve always been an advocate of giving away your stuff for free and charging for gigs and merch. I know it doesn’t always work out, but when you’re starting why not give it a shot to see if it grows your fanbase? You’d be surprised…
Some of the other questions on the vid may be relevant too. Like the one about hustling. Worth a watch. Apply advice as needed.
