Voyno just shared this New York Post article on YouTube creators making some really good coin.
We’ve already talked about YouTube stars like Pamplemoose, but take a look at this growing list of YouTube personalities.
Youtube trumps every other service that lets you engage with music. As a musician, video is a way of getting the word out about your music and letting fans engage with you on a deeper level than just music. Yes, it takes time and work to get going, but this can become an income stream, so you win twice! Not only do you keep getting the word out, you also get paid!
In my opinion, Youtube and online video should be your core focus as an artist (besides the music of course) as a way to engage new fans. Twitter, Facebook, email, and all other social media sites are tools to support the converted fans.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3grSSc4OrGc&feature=fvsr]
