IMRO | The Mechanics of Music Management Seminar Series | Part One

September 25 @ 11:00 am - 5:30 pm

Free

Mechanics of Music Management’ seminar series in association with the Music Managers Forum (MMF) and delivered by Chris Cooke from CMU Insights, who will be joined by John Glennon (Jawdropper Management) and Kathryn Mason (Masonry PR), will explore best practice and current trends in artist management.

Together these sessions will provide a comprehensive guide to artist revenue streams and business models, record deals, fanbase building and direct-to-fan relationships, and explain where the manager fits in with each of these strands of the business.

These seminars will be of interest to those starting out in artist management, artists who self-manage their careers and also for more experienced managers looking to gain a fresh insight into new trends and management strategies.


THE MECHANICS OF MUSIC MANAGEMENT | PART ONE

DEALS, DATA AND THE ARTIST/MANAGER RELATIONSHIP

This full day course looks at how artists build a business around their music, and the manager’s role in making that happen. Along the way it covers music revenues, artist companies, business partners, management deals and fan data. Chris Cooke from CMU Insights leads the proceedings with a series of presentations – including insights from the MMF’s ground-breaking ‘Digital Dollar’ work. Plus hear from guests working in management, marketing and deal-making.

Music Revenues
How do artists make money out of their music and what business partners do they work with to unlock each revenue stream? We put the spotlight on the intellectual property, live performance and fan relationship strands of the music business.

The Artist/Manager Relationship
What role does the manager play in each artist business and how does this impact on the artist/manager deal? We look at how the artist/manager relationship can vary, over time, and depending on who the artist is and the kind of business they are evolving.

Companies & Money
How does an artist go about structuring their business and managing their money? What questions need to be answered and what formalities need to be completed to ensure everything is agreed, legal and secure? Plus how does the manager facilitate this process?

Building A Fanbase 
At the heart of every artist’s business is their fanbase. How can artists formally connect with and start to understand the core fanbase, and how does that process drive the business?

Fan Data 
As the artist’s business grows, they will start to gather valuable data about their fanbase. Or at least, the platforms and partners they work with will! How can artists ensure that they have access to that data – and how can they legally utilise it to grow their business.
