Surviving #TNM Year One.
WHO GoT CUT!?, WHO GAVE UP & WHY?
#TNM is an intense program. We have a business focus. Smart artists use this place as a stepping stone.
Some artists come to us with a strong sense of entitlement that they may not have earned the right to claim just yet. WAIT JUST HEAR ME OUT!
Here is what we mean. It's one thing to make a lot of music, simply keep uploading free content or uploading to some kind of site in order to sell your mp3's. Then get people to click on some links and like, play ect....
It's another thing entirely to build on a professional level.
MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE UPLOADING MUSIC!
Becoming a brand and a business takes work.
#TNM helps artists understand all the steps that it takes to build a business and a brand. We do some of the work for our artists, depending on what services we are currently providing. Although we all but hold our members hand, a lot of the work still has to be done by the artist! Most artists are NOT looking to do the work or invest the time, effort and money to actually launch themselves up the ladder to a professional level.
"Many folks have it it their minds that they can somehow get magical attention just because of a good song. The problem with that is the internet provides professionals in the industry with a literal sea of millions of great songs! If I cut 100 artists I can have a thousand more in a week. The industry is highly competitive today.
That's just the way it is period.
If you want to stand out in a sea of great songs, acts and artists, you have to be working harder then the other guy. That's just all there is to it."
- Lady Rayne McCloud #TNM CEO
WE DON'T just magically make someone famous!
In order to be recognized in today's industry an artist has to work hard, period. We make it easier, by directing the client to the proper channels, tools, and education. #TNM cuts the costs these artists incur down to under a third of what the true cost would normally be to build a business and create a brand.
There is a high demand for getting into #TNM. Where else to get the amount of information we provide and especially in a one on one fashion? No other company is providing legal aid, administration of publishing, copyrights, ISRC codes, cataloging and so many other services for pennies on the dollar. We try to make it relatively easy to get in, but it's not easy to remain a member.
AND HERE'S WHY
You Are Wasting Money
#TNM SERVICES EXPLAINED BY OUR FOUNDER
SEE SOME OF OUR SERVICES LISTED CLICK HERE.
Almost every thing you pay for is too much, that's the first problem.
For instance at #TNM we provide free www.macprovideo.com courses and $10 full seats.
We use great sites and curate a full curriculum of classes that you can take for free and then pay $50.00 for the certificate . So for a few bucks you can get an education curated by working industry professionals. This gives you a BETTER education then they are providing for a fortune at most major universities!
Secondly the business foundation for most artists is trash, so they don't move as businesses but as individuals paying businesses. At #TNM we kill that first. Artists become businesses in the first set of "unit steps" provided in the #TNM program. They STOP right away moving like individuals and they become a VALID business and a brand. We work to assist them with all the legal actions that make this possible. Funny but many things are a lot less costly when you are moving as a business and not as a consumer!
PROMO? NO... COPY RIGHT AND CODING.
Then there is promo, you all waste money on that. What most artists are doing is ridiculous its like me creating a product and then promoting it without having it on a shelf! No copyright ( Might as well own a house and have no deed!) No ISRC account, ( they are being assigned codes which other people own or buying from companies that have actual accounts), No UPC account ( they are using UPCs that other companies own! or buying them from other companies that OWN them) lol Why are you promoting if not to send customers to BUY a product that YOU own?..... So another thing we do at #TNM is teach you how to own ALL the codes and not get them from some a company that owns the codes.
Then there is the issue of HFA or the Harry Fox Agency lol they are the ones collecting royalties for down loads and streaming and not ASCAP OR BMI! So most artists upload their music to a so called FREE site that then provides them codes that THEY OWN AND MONITOR and then the same company takes over their music in HFA. The artists doesn't have their own account in Sound Scan, they usually use someones SOUND SCAN ACCOUNT TOO! So the "upload your music now, free site collects ALL the artists mechanical royalties without them knowing a damn thing about it.
Cataloging & Fingerprinting
Then there is cataloging and fingerprints which no artists we have met even know about.
So you see you are being bullshitted still by this industry which has locked you out by providing pieces of the information in different places, running you around into years of banging your head in the wall, by the time you find #TNM most artists don't make it through my program. They come with bad attitudes, angry with all the run around, they don't want to work, they are already burned out. They want things given and handed to them. They ignore the fact that they are learning and doing things no one ever taught them before. Becuase we make them remain active in their OWN success some don't think they should pay me! lol So they try to finagle and they make me loose interest in assisting at all.
FULL SERVICE INDIE ARTIST ONE STOP SHOP!
We are the ABSOLUTE only company universities included teaching artists every single detail about every single part of this industry, and membership is only $500 a year. What we offer is worth thousands, creates thousands and saves thousands of dollars! Yet we have only met a hand full of artists who want to do this bad enough to actually learn it and see it through. To most artist indie is a lite weight idea someone threw to them in a cool promo video. Really their entire career has been hijacked by ALOT of companies!
Once you have your product in a buy, sale, trade, ready state THEN YOU RUN PROMO TO IT!
Promotion Insights and Resources, RETURN ON INVESTMENT!
Promo can be done in a wonderful way for very little money and high return, return on investment is essential. This is main issue not how much you spend but that you have a business manager making sure you don't spend more then what you get back! That would be me. So even my program is built for return on income. #TNM members can invite other "WORTHY" people. When they do this it kicks back to them 50% , so the first invite they have made back $250.00, the second, they have made back their entire cost of membership and by the 3rd they have made a return for just being a member. We keep that attitude going.
We turn artists into entrepreneurs at #TNM, everything else is BS. period
Lately I find myself pondering applications for days... I cant figure the right formula to finding artists who are worth the one on one time we spend. We are consistently engaged and talking to them, we provide a chat room, direct phone line, how to groups, free resources, and hands on assistance in administration. However artists who are drained and coming in the door with the energy of some old thing they tried to do that didn't work is taxing on our own enthusiasm. We are looking for fully engaged, excited, ready to go, people! People who understand the worth of what we have decided to share. APPLY IF THAT'S YOU!

Each member is FULLY educated concerning the industry, assuring that they are prepared to have a conversation that does NOT frustrate professionals. The very dedicated individuals that complete this program understand innately that a real deal is rare and the company offering that deal is an investor who is looking for a solid ROI.
