STEP 1:  Create

STEP 2:  ?????

STEP 3:  Profit!


What is Step2?

Floor64's Step2 is a community brainstorming platform for asking about, suggesting, creating, and building models for success, with help from the Insight Community. It's not just about the "business" model, but the overall "success" model. How do you create that connection with the marketplace? How do you offer something worth buying? Step2 is here to help.

If you're trying to figure out how to succeed, provide some details and ask for some insight. If you've got ideas, jump into the existing discussions. Let's all team up to help turn the Step 2 in every plan into something more than just question marks.

Looking for informational reading on the industry

1 like 0 dislike
I'd like to keep current and informed about the music industry. Techdirt does a great job of reporting news regarding music industry and its discontents. But are there any other blogs that you recommend reading? Things where I can learn about mergers and acquisitions, parent and subsidiary labels, touring and album revenues, etc.

I go to hypebot.com a lot, which also links to musicthinktank.com. There's also some good stuff on Billboard.biz. Pollstar has a lot of good info, too.

Musicthinktank.com is awesome.  I'll have to check out the others.  Thanks!

There's also www.musically.com... they offer a free two-week trial and then ask for subscriptions. I think they're a bit UK-oriented, but they cover global music news.
