Consistently focused on helping artists turn their part-time hobby into a full time business, music resource hub Artist Collective never misses the mark. With the music industry entering a brand new chapter in a long and arduous battle with COVID, they understand the importance of equipping artists with the skills they need in order to maximize their livestreaming potential. Because of this, Artist Collective’s Content Marketing Lead and Indie Band Coach Leonard Patterson is introducing a treasure chest of livestreaming tips and tactics in his self-published book called “365 Livestream Ideas for Musicians”. Now available for purchase on Amazon here, the book is geared toward artists of all tiers who are interested in building a sustainable source of growth and income.
“I wrote 365 Livestream Ideas for Musicians to help artists remove the roadblocks of knowing what their livestreams could be. There are tons of talented musicians, singers, and bands who are literally just one idea away from turning what they love into a fun, sustainable, profitable music brand.” – Leonard Patterson
The go-to resource guide includes pro-tips on how to effectively film your livestreams, what to incorporate in order to hook your viewers, methods of promoting your broadcasts to increase your reach and ways to fully monetize your streams. Monetization strategies include virtual tip jars, ticketed events, subscriptions and so much more. Even as concert venues begin to open, the convenience and creative potential of livestreaming is here to stay. Not only does livestreaming have monetizable potential but it’s also a proven way to connect and interact with fans. Leonard’s book also comes packed with artist spotlights and in depth interviews like metal band Underoath on how they made over $600k on a livestreamed event as well as former P-Funk drummer Rico Lewis and how he uses livestreaming to build a fanbase without playing music.
