Music Export manual

1.Export Basics

The definition of export is when you take your product from the country you’re based into a new territory, often a country or market. These resources are here to help you prepare for, build and strategise when it comes to exporting your music. Whether you’re a label, manager or artist there’s plenty of skills to develop and innovations to keep on top of. 

In music there are many factors to consider when it comes to export. From choosing which countries to tour, to what language to write in and what platforms to use. More than anything it’s important to develop goals, aims and strategy to ensure you make the most of all opportunities and connect with audiences across the world effectively.

Intro: In order to understand how export works it’s vital to know the basics of how the music industry is structured. By breaking down your work into live, publishing, recording and branding, it’s easier to understand the different ways and parts of your work that you can export. This foundation of knowledge will support you in developing an impactful export strategy.

– If you’re sharing the work, make sure that you clearly define who will look at what to ensure you’re not doing the work twice, it can be very time consuming.
– Don’t message the people you find right away; wait for the right moment or until you have a carefully thought out strategy in place.
– Use networks that already exist to find out about a country. By asking your peers or those around you who they might know in a particular country you have a fast track route to an introduction.
– Look for those on a similar level to you, this will help you connect and provide mutually beneficial opportunities.
– Remember your knowledge is useful too. When approaching people it’s important to realise that they might benefit from your experience and knowledge of the country you’re based in. Offering your own support can help others provide better support for you.
