American hip hop group based in Los Angeles the Procussions have been touring extensively in Europe lately where they returned to promote their latest album. Having used Diy tools and services for a long time, Jason Medeiros explains his vision and how they managed to grow their fan base and sales in Europe.

  

What are some of the biggest changes you’ve noticed in the music industry in your 15 years as an artist?

Artists are truly independent now, functioning as a small business. Artists need to know as much as possible about their fan base and how to reach them. Artists must also look for new and creative ways to promote themselves as the rise of the independents have also given way to it’s overconsumption.

What would you say are the key talents/skills to develop a career in music today ?

Connecting directly with fans and developing a more personal relationship with them. Also, maintaining a solid stream of promotion via new music, products, and/or innovative ways of creating interest in their music.

 

You seem to have an innovative business approach. What do you expect from a complete solution to make your music and art available to your fans on internet ?

Artists need to work with one-stop solutions, the pace of the industry is a lot faster now and the multi-tasking element is essential, doing more in one place- efficiently and effectively is key. Having a variety of merchandise options available with a quick turn around time is important and it’s a must that one has the proper social tools to make their fan base aware of them.

Can you tell us how Wiseband has helped you develop your fan base and sales in Europe and in France?

Having a relationship with a distributor/merchant/manufacture has been extremely advantageous and cost effective. Wiseband makes the merchandising logistics easy from this distance and it saves us a lot of money. Shipping items from the States to Europe was a heavy responsibility which took away from revenue, having these items available upon getting off the plane is a game changer.

5 questions to Ellie Chandler. Piano Classics label manager.

” What I love about Wiseband is that they do it all for you! “

___________

What are the main changes you have noticed in the industry in your years as a label manager? 

CD sales are very, very bad. They have dramatically dropped in the last 3  years. Most distributors only work on consignment now -no one wants the risk of firm sale / sale or return. It’s more important than ever to get directly in touch with your customers. Cut out the middle man! There is always a more direct route to market.

What would you say are the key talents to develop a record label and what advices would you give?

My advice? Don’t do it! If you do want to do it, be prepared to be innovative. Don’t be afraid to make up new rules.

Diversify the services you offer! Selling music might not be enough anymore. There are NO rules. If you want to have a particular sound and you’re worried that it’s not “professional” enough, don’t worry about it. Be incredibly proactive and make remixes of existing tracks to send to labels. Build up your own collective around you.

What do you expect from a complete solution to sell your catalogue on the Internet? Which tools and service would you need in priority?

It needs to be as user friendly as possible. No one has the time, patience or expertise to do anything more than upload and copy & paste. What I love about Wiseband is that they do it all for you! It would need to give me complete control over my music and how it is displayed, formatted etc. It allows a more direct route to your customer as well. Simply putting the music online isn’t enough.

Do you see label to fans direct selling becoming a major income in the future?

Yes definitely. The margins are a lot better than selling as export. Plus, every time you sell a CD you’re marketing further for the company!

What can we expect from Piano Classics this year and what are you most looking fowrard to in 2013?

More direct selling to fans and building up a killer mailing list!
