Tip # 2: Have Management.
With this being the second of five essentials for a successful career as an artist, it is definitely an important one. It can be easy to think, especially when you are first starting out, that a manager is unnecessary. The opposite is definitely true.
Having some type of management can be key in a multitude of ways, one of the most obvious ones being that it allows you as the artist to put more of your time and energy into writing and playing music. Management is also the tool that sets an artist up for promotion. It gives you someone to take care of setting up gigs and putting together press/promo kits. As well, this person can walk you through any business or career decisions that may come up. That being said, it is important that you stay in touch with the business side of your music career so that you are still in the driver’s seat and can stay in control of which direction you would like things to go.
It is not impossible to act as your own manager but it will come to a point where anyone in the know would advise you to have a second party do it for you. The more people looking out for the best interest of advancing your music career the better!
