Licensing Music, Building an Audience and Embracing Streaming—Angela Predhomme (Ep 136)
Angela Predhomme is a soulful singer, composer and musician. She strives to make music that can stand up to the best of the best, and it certainly does. Angela’s music has been featured in many well known film and TV productions, she has won many songwriting awards and has been recognized by Thrive Global as a rising star.
Angela has done the hard work of building community online and in person. We discuss her approach to attaining a 5-digit social media presence, focusing on the online music economy, and creating content that serves her listeners. Angela approaches her career like a portfolio – no one thing is the be all end all, not even social media, and I appreciate it.
We start by talking about how she got into podcast advertising and working with a PR firm. We then go on to discuss:
Producing her own ads
Building a 5-digit social media following
Licensing music to well-known film and TV companies
Experimenting with live video
Serve others first. Community comes from service.
Keep putting out content. Keep a schedule.
