We all understand the importance of having a team to support each others growth while building success in todays music industry but not many truly understand how to build a trustworthy team to successfully reach each others goals.
So in this article, we want to provide you with some helpful tips on how you can find your tribe!
Lets get into it!
4 key people to look out for:
- The Honest Critic - This is the person that knows music and loves the music you create. As long as this person is being honest, their input really means something.
- Ol’ Wise One - This person is the knowledgeable one. If you don’t know the answer to a particular question or questions he/she should be able to get you the answers you need in a timely manner.
- The Creative - This person should help motivate and inspire you creatively. He/she will provide you with ideas that no one would have thought of. They see trends and knows how to ride the wave better than anyone else.
- The Social Media Expert - Not everyone is great at social media. If fact, many artists look at social media as a chore and when it is put that way it’s very off-putting. That’s where this person comes in… Having someone like this on your team will give you more time to focus on creating music rather than creating the perfect post for “likes” or “follows”.
Finding your “team” does not happen overnight and will more than likely change over time. Connecting with others and building your network is how you’ll find the ones that’ll get all of you closer to your goals. So now, you maybe asking, how do I get the ball rolling and where do I even start?
Here are a few tips when you’re your way to building your team:
Give without asking for anything in return.
Your Inner Supporter
Being a supporter means more than just liking someones post on IG, Twitter or Facebook. Think about this, have you ever been at an event or a club where no one is dancing? Then all of a sudden someone comes along, starts to dance and the next thing you know the dance floor is lit?
Consistency is key in any form of business and you must choose to be consistent not only for yourself but in others. Many successful people have absolutely no tolerance for those who are inconsistent and unreliable. If you’re going to connect with someone, be sure you are there and that you always come back.
