Wake up, folks! It’s networking season! Granted, if you’re serious about a music career, every day is a prime day for networking. As the Muze circle expands and we continue to meet people in the music industry with one another, we’re more excited than ever to welcome you to our family.
Signing up is easy, but once you’ve got your profile all decked out and you’re ready to start meeting other professionals, you might find yourself wondering which direction to move in. As we all know by now, the music industry is an exceptionally complex apparatus of artists and businessmen who want to both succeed and help each other succeed.
Whether you’re in Nashville, Detroit, Malibu, or Timbuktu, there’s bound to be some semblance of a music community harvesting itself right around the corner. As you navigate through Muze and continuously grow your circle of connections, you can look forward to meeting a series of different eclectics who are certain to prove exceptionally useful people.
Of course, this first and foremost includes musicians, but beyond the obvious, there’s a large scope of other useful people in music to keep an eye out for.
Here’s a list of different kinds of professionals you’re liable to meet on the new Muze hiring platform:
1. Meet a sound engineer/producer
Unless you’re Prince, you’ll probably need someone to sit behind the soundboard and attack your music from a technical angle while you do what you do best – play. Not only are you likely to meet some great sound engineers on Muze, but you’ll be in a great place to learn a thing or two from them about the production process when you do. One step closer to being the next Prince!
2. Find a social media specialist
You don’t have to know an instrument to be a crucial player in the music industry. These days, social media specialists are your lights in a vast, dark room whose walls keep expanding infinitely. Terms like SEO, Keyword Research, and Conversion probably don’t make sense to you, but to a social media guru, they’re routine practice. Trust me – you’ll want to keep an eye out for someone who knows their social media sh!@ as you move through Muze.
3. Discover a photographer/graphic designer
One of the most exciting parts of promoting your music career is getting professional photos done. Really, it’s a blast. You discover a whole other creative side of yourself from the outside looking in, but that’s only if you find someone who knows what they’re doing. The Muze circle is rich with photographers and graphic designers, so you’ll have your pick of the picture-perfect litter at the click of a button.
4. Link up with a venue owner/booking person
It’s hardly out of the realm of possibilities to encounter the owner of a hot local concert venue on Muze. It’s a rich market for musicians, so it stands to reason that a venue coordinator would seek prospective new acts to throw up on stage. Whether or not you decide to be one of those acts is up to you! Even if the person in question isn’t explicitly a venue owner, he or she could very well be a working musician who also books certain writers rounds or other talent showcases; or maybe they know someone who does and is happy to put you in touch with them. In any case, your chances of finding new gigs and fresh stages to plug into are a lot higher when you join Muze.
