You probably have heard about Pomplamoose, we’ve written about them before. They are one of the most succesful DIY bands on YouTube. They started putting up clever covers and in a short time developed an ever expanding covers fan base into fans of thier own songs.
The interesting thing is that they don’t tour, and rarely play shows. Instead they spend their time developing YouTube videos that will garner them far more fans and money than what playing shows could achieve.
CDBaby’s DIY Musician Podcast has a illuminating interview with Jack Conte half of Pamplamoose. In the podcast Jack speaks on the ways Pamplamoose makes money, the realities of the music business that his band is faced with, and lays out a step by step ways to make a video song, which is quite specific apparently.
I am telling you that if you want to know how to make money as a modern day musician you MUST listen to this podcast. Jack speaks about the power his videos have had, the revenue streams that his band enjoys, and Pomplamoose’s strategy for creating and keeping an audience engaged and buying his products.
