How to be your own artist manager

 
how to be your own artist manager [free downloads]
 

When I started my artist management internship four and a half years ago - I knew next to nothing about the music business! But as a list maker and organizer, I quickly made multiple checklists so that I could keep up and make sure I was on track. A year later, I was hired full time at that management company (where I still work) because those checklists had proven to be a necessity to function! Woah. Cool.

1. If you feel like you're spending all your time on tour logistics and social media marketing instead of writing and practicing for shows - keep reading.

2. If you are a tour manager who needs a system and way to keep track of all the little details - keep reading.

3. If you wake up at night wondering what ticket counts look like for that show next week - keep reading.

Sharing is caring, right? I have gotten a head start on making my 2016 checklists and have put them in a format so you can download, print, and love (I mean, use) them too!

Checklist 1 will help you organize the the "who & where"...
Venue, location, contact info, travel and lodging information

Checklist 2 will help you keep track of promotional details...
Announce dates, on sale dates, social media posts, and ticket counts

Pro Tip | I recommend you use page 1 from each checklist together, pages 2 together, and so on.
