Most artists make this mistake…

Are you making this mistake too?

​If you wanna be a successful Digital Art Dealer…

There are 3 very important things you need to understand:​

(Meaning you make a living from your art online and have the freedom to do what you want)

1. You need your own piece of internet real estate…

You need a website.

Yesterday, I added another video to my playlist showing you exactly how to set up your website easily…

But this email isn’t gonna be about that…

Why?

Cos it doesn’t matter what I say – you wont create a website until you realise how much you needed it…

So I’m not gonna try and persuade you…

You’ll get there when you’re ready.

Or you wont…and you’ll just be another failed, starving artist…

Only time will tell…

So what is this email about?

Well, let’s get to the 2nd thing:

2. You need to release your art (or content) consistently

A big mistake most artists make is being too much of a perfectionist…

For example:

I’ve been following a few people on instagram (at least 5)…

They have “artist” or “singer” in their profiles…

And, I haven’t seen ONE song release from them.

How can you publicly call yourself an artist if you don’t release any art to the public?

If you’re doing the same thing as these “artists” you need to fix up now.

The fact is:

The more stuff you create – the better you get at creating…

The more stuff you release – the better you get at creating for your audience…

The more time you spend procrastinating – the better you get at procrastination…

Simply put: 

Releasing your stuff will make you a better artist.

As long as your song is at a point where YOU like it…it’s ready to go out.

And, I can’t lie, I have an issue with this too…

So I’m very hard on myself and I prioritise creating products in the marketplace over perfection.

Let me explain:

Yesterday, I finally finished the mix and master for my new song “Hill”.

I got it to a point where it sounds good and I like it…a LOT.

But, here’s the thing:

Today I was watching some YouTube videos and searching the internet about mixing stuff…

And, I’ve found a few AMAZING techniques…

What do I do?

Do I go back and try these techniques out on the song I’ve just finished?

NO!

It’s done.

It’s ready to enter the marketplace and be listened to by people.

A 2% improvement isn’t worth the time, effort and delay…

Instead, here’s what I’ll do:

I’ll experiment with these new techniques on my NEXT song…

Then I’ll experiment a bit more with the song after that…

After 3 songs, I’ll have the perfect template for all my vocal recording and song mixing + mastering needs…

Then I can turn that template into a product and make it available for artists like you to use.

The point is:

I could spend FOREVER on this “Hill” song if I try to add every new thing I learn.

I could try to improve it until it was perfect…

And, most people wouldn’t notice the difference…

I’ll actually create a better result if I simply create MORE and RELEASE songs.

If you don’t release anything, you can’t improve your music using the feedback from the public.

And, you already know that: The more stuff you create – the better you get at creating…

Don’t forget this…
