JAZZFUEL MANAGER

Helping jazz musicians like you prepare & launch new music and grow & promote a project

If you don’t have a manager looking after your career, it can seem difficult to untangle all the different things you’re meant to be doing. Not to mention time-consuming.  

From preparing & planning your next release, to growing an audience of jazz fans who are ready to buy your music, there’s a lot to think about. And that’s on top of actually doing your job of making music

More often than not, artists with a manager succeed not simply because there’s a manager doing everything, but because they act as someone else to bounce ideas off of, get feedback from and to educate you on the business side of things.

Jazzfuel Manager is a collection of video courses, resources and tutorials aimed at helping you take control and plan your career, centred around a members forum where you can get unlimited feedback & support on anything you’re working on. And, on top of that, there are monthly live sessions where you can ask questions or see what other jazz musicians around the world are working on. 

Whether you’re in the planning stages of a new release or just want to make sure you’re not missing any easy ‘wins’ when it comes to building your profile within the jazz industry, you’re very welcome to join us inside Jazzfuel Manager for some extra support and motivation.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

If you feel that you should be getting more from your next release, getting some help & support to make sure you’re well-prepared and aren’t missing anything important could make a big difference.

Mailing List Bootcamp

The key to growing a long-term career as a creative musician is to have direct access to fans around the world. 

Whilst social media can be effective for doing this, you have to play by their rules – which change regularly (hello Facebook) – and hope they don’t disappear along with all your fans (hello MySpace).

Enter, mailing lists of people who’ve given you permission to contact them with your news. This mini-course will help you do work on this efficiently and effectively by taking you through:

  1. Getting started. Whether you’re new to mailing lists, or you just haven’t worked on it for a while, make sure everything is set up properly.
  2. Growing your list. Specific strategies for getting real fans around the world to give you permission to email them your news.
  3. Engaging your subscribers. Steps for turning a causal email subscriber into a lifelong fan who will buy your music and come to your gigs. 

As well as the step-by-step video course, you can post questions and support requests into the members-only forum. Whether your struggles with this are due to technical difficulties or lack of an effective plan, you can start making progress right away.
