Not so sure if you should outsource your music admin requirements? Here are five reasons why you should.
5. Focus on what you do best
Indie artists are under a lot of pressure to wear several hats within their brand. Outsourcing your music admin requirements alleviates some of the responsibility which rests on your shoulders. It may require a financial investment at first, but what does it really cost you if it affords you the opportunity do what you do best?
4. Establish credibility & build on your reputation
Sound admin establishes credibility. Sure, everyone knows that artists are a rare breed, but in the professional world you are required to perform at your best, irrespective of whether you have a type A or B personality. Outsourcing your music admin requirements gives you the peace of mind that your operations will be dealt with at a level you can be proud of and attach your name to. Known for your incredible vocal ability? Why not add impeccable administration to your resume?
3. Stop doing something you hate
Some people genuinely hate paperwork, and that’s okay. Outsourcing your music admin requirements allows you to get rid of this demon and banish it to the pit of hell. If you are able to outsource for this sole reason, go ahead, bro! Spend more time with your family, take up a hobby! Life is too short to spend a large chunk of your time doing something you dislike.
2. Make informed decisions
There is a lot of information floating around on the internet. In all honesty, you should be able to do this yourself. But between all the terminology, new regulations and various bodies you are encouraged to join, your list of to-do’s can become quite overwhelming and confusing. If you choose to outsource your music admin requirements to a professional, they will help you make informed decisions based on research already done! Someone who does this for a living will be able to make a quality assessment based on your unique circumstances and advise accordingly. There is nothing better than accurate advice compiled with you in mind.
1. Do it once, do it right
Few things can cause more frustration than tedious back and forth. Outsourcing your music administration requirements will mean that someone with clear knowledge on how to fill out and submit applications, will do so on your behalf, minimising error and improving your chances of a smooth application.
