If you've failed at effectively selling your music online in the past, it's not your fault. There's a lot of information out there, and it can be confusing. 

Many times that information overload keeps you from success. It's fine.

if you've been concerned in the past that you just can't be profitable with your music, I want to put those fears to rest. You can do this.

You just need the right person to explain it to you.

The big music corporations want you to think you need a lot of venture capital or some fancy college degree to be successful.

I'm here to tell you they're wrong. They have their own reasons for wanting you to think that, but it's not true.

Most of these corporations want you to fail. They don't benefit from you succeeding. They want to keep you in debt and in need.

The difference with us is that we actually care about your success and truly want to see you living the life of your dreams.

That's what we're here for.

I know you have a dream to change the world and make an impact, and I want to show you how to make that happen during this course.

Goal for this course:

. The only way for you to exponentially grow your music business is through building an effective selling system

. The only way to build an effective selling system is to follow this step by step course

I have been working in the music industry for 20 years and studied music business at Berklee Music School. I took the best strategies and tools that I learned over the years to create the perfect Music Selling Machine for musicians. Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Imogen Heap, and others have been involved with the same strategies and had big success.

You Don't Need to be a Master Marketer or Copywriter

How to Become a Profitable Musician:

1.) You attract fans on a special page on your website (Squeeze Page).

2.) They enter an email address in exchange for free music.

3.) The autoresponder sends friendly emails for a few days to build a relationship.

4.) The autoresponder sends offers to buy the music.

5.) BING >>> You've got new sales every day on auto pilot. No kidding.
