Andrew Dubber writes an excellent New Music Strategies
blog devoted to helping small-medium music businesses and independent artists use new online technologies and strategies in order to make money and thrive in the new environment. The site also provides a Newswire service that delivers daily links to articles about the latest developments in the music industry. He describes himself as a lecturer, author, speaker, broadcaster and new music enthusiast, and also teaches and does research at Birmingham City University in the U.K.
Best of all, Dubber has made available a free e-book for download, “The 20 Things You Must Know About Music Online“. Based on a collection of his postings, the e-book helps musicians understand how the industry is changing and how to adapt and thrive online. This is an invaluable resource for any musician or independent music business wanting to have a successful web presence.
