As an artist and freelancer , this year has proven to be very difficult.
With such a dynamic and changing environment, it’s been so difficult to plan or even consider HOW to move forward.
That lack of engagement with our peers, friends, family and audiences has left a massive hole in so many people lives.
Its more important than ever that we try to find ways to repair and rebuild that hole and help each other with sharing the gift of artistic work. We may not be able to perform in a live setting BUT its time to adapt and start taking advantage of adapting to new monetisation methods and carving your OWN path.
The tools available to the DIY artist right now are so beneficial to creating a more intimate and direct artist to fan relationship via the virtual global stage.
Fans ARE interacting virtually, and Audiences ARE tuning in.
By adapting, updating and expanding your ONLINE presence and interacting more intimately with your clients, your career can be more stable, predictive, rewarding and financially viable in times of unpredictability.
