Full time independent musician is teaching others how to make money with their music.

Lynz Crichton is the creator of Music Marketing Method, a program that shows musicians how to make money with their music. She is also a friend and mentor to me. I am part of the student body that is her Music Marketing Method program.

Lynz believes that generating an income with music doesn’t have to be about just playing live. She first appeared on this podcast in 2017, when she estimates her Twitter following was about 5,000 followers. Lynz’s Twitter following is now at about 32k. She knows how to grow an audience on social media. Her music career was in fact build online. Today she’s making money in many different ways. This is part of what she teaches in Music Marketing Method.

Lynz has a background in education. I’m sure this is part of what makes her so good at disseminating information and explaining otherwise complicated topics. Some of the areas covered in Music Marketing Method include audience growth on social media, email list growth, live streaming, remote session work, Patreon, crowdfunding, endorsements, YouTube and much more. Students are also given access to biweekly Q & A / hive-mind sessions. Lynz also runs a private Facebook group that provides support and community for students.

Please enjoy this episode and my conversation with Lynz Crichton.
