"MTA now offers MTA Mentoring for artists and musicians!"
If you have been in the industry for more than 20 years, you´ve accumulated an enormous amount of knowledge and experience regarding the many pieces of the music industry. As a result of that, we can offer to be a great support in a number of areas. We are constantly flooded by requests for tips and advice in all possible channels and contexts. That's why we started MTA Mentoring.
A mentoring opportunity can be done live or by phone / video. It can be done by individual meetings or seminars for a group. Examples of subjects and content we can discuss and help you with are:
* PACKAGING / DEVELOPMENT / COLLABORATIONS!
How do I build my team together? What do I wanna do with my art? Do I have a USP? What's the next - or the first! - step?
* SALE / BOOKING!
How do I sell my brand? What does a booking agency do? How do I book gigs on my own? What does it take to sell tickets? And how do I make my brand attractive for a booking company?
* SOCIAL MEDIA!
How should I manage my social media profiles, and which ones should I use? How do I cut through the white noise? How do I maximize the number of followers, and what strategies should I consider using?
* INTERNATIONALIZATION / EXPORT!
What does it mean to be ready for export? How to reach an international level? We know which paths to choose and how to think. Everything from networking to finding the right context and finding the right doors…
