There are thousands of services out there ready to take the money most musicians have worked very hard to earn, in exchange for promises of fortune and fame in music business. But too often the promise is much more than the reality and the artist ends up feeling scammed. I know, I have made these mistakes in the past…
So next time you are thinking of outsourcing something, like PR, or radio promotion, ask questions before you part with your money. And don’t only ask for the quote, ask what the deliverables are going to be and ask them in writing. This will force any self-respecting company to be honest with you. If they refuse to give you this information, walk away! To stop all the scam artists trying to rip off musicians, we need to become smarter at filtering out the trash. And this will force the companies to offer better service as well.
