Music is great. Music is loved. When music is beautifully created, with artistry and perfection, it delves deep into the hearts and souls of people throughout the globe. As such, music is a passion that earns individuals billions. However, not all are favoured by the fortunate tune of events. Many upcoming artistes have their wings clipped before they can soar by massive debtss and losses. A great percentage of these are due to costs incurred during music production. The frustrations caused are indescribable.
Where the Revenue Goes
Be it a solo artiste’s production or a band performance, there are some costs that will have to be incurred. These are all in the process of making a hit a success. There is always a risk involved with each production-the reaction by the populations can’t be precisely foretold.
As such, with the music industry being the business it is, most of the fees and costs are paid in advance. If the process goes well, in the end one can make massive profits. If it doesn’t, the situation is not comfortable in the least. Examples of these costs include the manager’s cut, legal and studio fees, recording budgets, equipment rentals, on-line and offline editing, paying the crew, promotional photo shoots and many more.
Proper Finance Management
It is given that to make money, one has to spend money. However, to avoid losses and going into debt’ after production, one has to have a concrete plan of action. This entails a detailed debt repayment plan that will incorporate the set financial goals.
It is highly advised against advancing funds from onedebt source to meet another-the classic rob Peter to pay Paul scenario. This should never be done unless it is really and absolutely necessary. In addition, should it be required, one should obtain the services of financial institutions offering temporary relief to buy time for sorting out of issues.
The overall goal should be to get out of debtand stay out of debt. As such, as one benefits from the profits of the venture, it is advised to set aside an emergency fund and refrain from using its revenue.
