2:00pm – 3:30pm Musicians Lunch
Musician’s Lunch is a luncheon event to bring together musicians who are interested in learning about the latest trends in music marketing and ideas for promotion over a meal. I love talking about music, I love breaking down marketing strategies used by successful indie musicians, and I love eating out. If you have your heart set on sitting next next to me, that spot goes to the first musician who offers to buy my lunch! In addition to the fun we’ll be having, each lunch attendee will also get a free music marketing strategy guide that’s worth $47!

Space limited to 8.

4:00pm – 5:30pm “Sell Your Music!” Workshop
This workshop is for advanced musicians in any musical genre who already have a website, mailing list, and CDs and/or MP3s available for sale to the general public. If you don’t have these items already, but are planning to do so in the near future, this workshop will help you learn what you need to know for a successful CD launch.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:
* What are the ONLY ways to build your music business
* How to build a product/merchandise line
