Anyone have experience in music industry marketing? From the outside, it seems awesome to have a client who’s an artist instead of a middle-aged corporate white dude.

I’ll betcha artists can be even bigger assholes than corporate white dudes.


☝️ no u


Clients are still middle aged white people. Work is less interesting but also more fun if that makes sense. You don’t get the challenge of coming up with something spectacular but you do get to market something people care about and that gives you a lot more room to play.


I was a booking agent before becoming an Account Executive.


Clients are probably label execs and agents


The old music industry can't come to the phone right now. Why? Oh, cuz it's dead!


@AE1 how was it?

You’re an idiot


What is a music industry anymore? Nothing that's any good actually needs marketing - your clients will be the worst of the worst. I guess you could book shows...
