#TNM SERVICES EXPLAINED BY OUR FOUNDER
Almost every thing you pay for is too much, that's the first problem.
For instance at #TNM we provide free www.macprovideo.com courses and $10 full seats.
We use great sites and curate a full curriculum of classes that you can take for free and then pay $50.00 for the certificate . So for a few bucks you can get an education curated by working industry professionals. This gives you a BETTER education then they are providing for a fortune at most major universities!
Secondly the business foundation for most artists is trash, so they don't move as businesses but as individuals paying businesses. At #TNM we kill that first. Artists become businesses in the first set of "unit steps" provided in the #TNM program. They STOP right away moving like individuals and they become a VALID business and a brand. We work to assist them with all the legal actions that make this possible. Funny but many things are a lot less costly when you are moving as a business and not as a consumer!
PROMO? NO... COPY RIGHT AND CODING.
Then there is promo, you all waste money on that. What most artists are doing is ridiculous its like me creating a product and then promoting it without having it on a shelf! No copyright ( Might as well own a house and have no deed!) No ISRC account, ( they are being assigned codes which other people own or buying from companies that have actual accounts), No UPC account ( they are using UPCs that other companies own! or buying them from other companies that OWN them) lol Why are you promoting if not to send customers to BUY a product that YOU own?..... So another thing we do at #TNM is teach you how to own ALL the codes and not get them from some a company that owns the codes.
Then there is the issue of HFA or the Harry Fox Agency lol they are the ones collecting royalties for down loads and streaming and not ASCAP OR BMI! So most artists upload their music to a so called FREE site that then provides them codes that THEY OWN AND MONITOR and then the same company takes over their music in HFA. The artists doesn't have their own account in Sound Scan, they usually use someones SOUND SCAN ACCOUNT TOO! So the "upload your music now, free site collects ALL the artists mechanical royalties without them knowing a damn thing about it.
Cataloging & Fingerprinting
Then there is cataloging and fingerprints which no artists we have met even know about.
So you see you are being bullshitted still by this industry which has locked you out by providing pieces of the information in different places, running you around into years of banging your head in the wall, by the time you find #TNM most artists don't make it through my program. They come with bad attitudes, angry with all the run around, they don't want to work, they are already burned out. They want things given and handed to them. They ignore the fact that they are learning and doing things no one ever taught them before. Becuase we make them remain active in their OWN success some don't think they should pay me! lol So they try to finagle and they make me loose interest in assisting at all.
FULL SERVICE INDIE ARTIST ONE STOP SHOP!
We are the ABSOLUTE only company universities included teaching artists every single detail about every single part of this industry, and membership is only $500 a year. What we offer is worth thousands, creates thousands and saves thousands of dollars! Yet we have only met a hand full of artists who want to do this bad enough to actually learn it and see it through. To most artist indie is a lite weight idea someone threw to them in a cool promo video. Really their entire career has been hijacked by ALOT of companies!
Once you have your product in a buy, sale, trade, ready state THEN YOU RUN PROMO TO IT!
Promotion Insights and Resources, RETURN ON INVESTMENT!
Promo can be done in a wonderful way for very little money and high return, return on investment is essential. This is main issue not how much you spend but that you have a business manager making sure you don't spend more then what you get back! That would be me. So even my program is built for return on income. #TNM members can invite other "WORTHY" people. When they do this it kicks back to them 50% , so the first invite they have made back $250.00, the second, they have made back their entire cost of membership and by the 3rd they have made a return for just being a member. We keep that attitude going.
We turn artists into entrepreneurs at #TNM, everything else is BS. period
Lately I find myself pondering applications for days... I cant figure the right formula to finding artists who are worth the one on one time we spend. We are consistently engaged and talking to them, we provide a chat room, direct phone line, how to groups, free resources, and hands on assistance in administration. However artists who are drained and coming in the door with the energy of some old thing they tried to do that didn't work is taxing on our own enthusiasm. We are looking for fully engaged, excited, ready to go, people! People who understand the worth of what we have decided to share. APPLY IF THAT'S YOU!
