So I have been HEAVY into learning about marketing for the last 2 years. As you can see on some of my sites like my trackperday.com site, where I sell my sounds/ebook, that I have it set up like a sales page. This is mainly to attract a cold audience to my stuff, since they don't know me, I have to convince them why I am trustworthy and why my product is good etc. This has been a LONG process to learn how to do this properly. Not to mention all the website designing/coding involved in getting a cart system working and delivery products to customers.
Why am I doing this? Well, I have been a freelancer for 6 years and 1 month now and it has been taxing to say the least. I have done a lot of projects that haven't really paid off in the long term so I have had to keep my hands to the grind. In order to escape this crazy work loop I have been developing products and a line of sounds at https://braille.audio
Currently there are only 2 products up, but there are 12 in the works. I will be releasing them one at a time over the next couple months on websites like producersloops and ADSR sounds and will be developing a release schedule over time as I see what sells and what doesn't. The man behind all the music is longtime remixer friend Leifo, who found me thru Overclocked Remix back in 2004. He basically composes the parts, I produce them. Then comes the long process of exporting and naming files for the final product zip. My freelance work has basically taught me how to make these things called "Sample Packs" and half of the current music scene is making them.
This is all going to come together pretty soon, but I thought I would share this out loud as I have kept it to myself for a few years.
I also have A LOT of plans for my music projects this year. One thing I want to start doing again is remixing as BLIND, so I am considering going back to making some game music projects. One is in the works now and it's about halfway done. I am sure some of you remember NESterYears. I did post "Super NESterYears" on bandcamp for my 4 subscribers, but those are all older releases. The new one is codenamed "SNESterYears" and focuses on only SNES games and remixes. It might be renamed later though, just depends on how it plays out. I need to finish that and my self titled album in the next few months so expect some awesome releases then.
I will keep writing these posts once a week to connect with you again, thanks for reading!
