Today’s Tip – What I have to offer!; Business earns business –
A company willing to sign on another person is not interested in signing on a person. Does that make sense? Companies investing time, and often money, want to deal with a person who is a company themselves. They run their success as if they are a business, because YOU are a business. Showing how much you have made an impact with information, results and effort will ensure your ability to work well with another company. Companies, agencies, managers, labels, they all want to take as little risk as possible when dealing with new ventures.
Have people been signed on talent alone? Yes, does much come out of it? Not often. If you are willing to take a chance waiting for your talent to get you a million dollar ticket you should start researching the percent of people that has helped, then figure out what 10% of that number is. Once you have that number you’ll know where you stand in your chances of being signed solely on talent. Talent is important, it is a part of the 3 needs of success. Networking, Marketing, and PRACTICE. Network so people befriend you, market so people know you, and practice so you can perform.
In the end, when you present your proposal to another company to help you “get to the next level” or “become famous”, make sure you have the information to back a solid working system for your business. Go to a back for a business loan, they will tell you that they want to see your company performing in the black for a minimum of two years. Proving to them you don’t need them. These companies that could help you further your career are only useful when you, yourself, are making your career happen. They are not interested in working with someone who is doing shows, and only shows, or making no money on those shows… to add, they are interested in people who are getting their name out there in any media they can… multiple times as well.
