  1. Music Industry Promoter Tackles HIV Problem

    August 19, 2014 by Johnny

    Back in July of this year, a company by the name of Merck made an announcement that they were going to work directly with Maria Davis, a well known Music promoter, and PWN or Positive Women’s Network to campaign across the globe educating women about HIV. The campaign of sorts had a goal to embolden and galvanize women who live everyday with HIV to speak out about their feelings regarding HIV testing and treatments and how best health care companies can tailor care and treatment to best meet an individual’s needs.

    Maria and PWN spoke out about their combined purpose to bring these women together because they all face the same unique challenges and their feedback could provide a lasting impression on how healthcare providers tackle HIV related issues through their medical plans.

    The statistics, when it comes to women with HIV, are staggering:

    1. 4 in 10 women with HIV say that it is considered “under control”

    2. There are over two-hundred and seventy-five thousand women in the United States who have HIV.

    3. In 2011 alone, over $16 billion was spent on HIV and AIDS research.

    In the music industry, many have been very outspoken about the HIV issue, none more than Maria Davis. Over many years, Maria has used her clout in the industry to her advantage to bring more awareness to the HIV problem and to educate others in local communities to fight the HIV/AIDS problems affecting so many women.

    Testing is obviously first on everyone’s list when it comes to finding a way to fix the problem. With the advent of many rapid response HIV testing products and in home oral HIV tests on the market, the amount of time it takes to determine if someone is HIV positive has been reduced from days to minutes. Obviously this is a message that is being brought to the world and much of the research money is going towards finding not only cures but quicker easier methods to test for HIV.

    music-businessBeing self-employed is the dream of many. It can be a great feeling to free yourself from the ties of being ’employed’ and begin working on a your new music business. Such a bold step will allow you to be your own boss, determine your official working hours and even employ more people when the business steps into next level. While starting a new business can be very rewarding, many potential business owners make little mistakes along the way that end up costing them a lot of money. In some cases, these mistakes can unfortunately be fatal to their businesses. Any entrepreneur who is considering getting involved in a new business, especially in music, must understand all the dos and don’t of starting a new business and learn how to avoid some of the most common mistakes that come with the territory.

    Here are some things you should consider before jumping into the Music business or really ANY business.

    Before leaping into the world as a business owner, it is very important to formulate a plan. Ask yourself a few questions. What kind of business would you like to have and how do you plan to grow and take your business to the next level. Consider the following:

    1. Do Your Market Research: This is one of the most important aspects of any start up music business. Market research is crucial in determining whether there is a spot within the marketplace for your propose, products and/or services. It will help you to analyze the market and hence give you clues on the present level competition. Companies that plan to offer products which already saturate the market may find it extremely difficult to survive the fierce competition. It can take months or even years of hard work and a unique spin on their product and services to make them attractive to consumers. A good market research plan can help business owners determine if their concept business will succeed and can also minimize financial loss or ideally set the company on the road to profits.

    2. Financial Makeover: This is an important part of any responsible business investment plan. This occurs at the initial stages of your business. This early stage of a new business is the best time to stay focused financially and trim the fat. Look at those important things which can add value to your business and enhance your growth and avoid wasteful spending. Think more of how you can save and what you can leverage. Try and eliminate expenses that may impede the success of your business.

    3. Business Marketing: This is an important aspect of all businesses. The few resources a company has for marketing can make a huge difference between success and failure of their business. Promoting your business investment and reaching out to the largest possible audience worldwide at the cheapest possible rates is any entrepreneur’s dream. This can be done online, via email, search engines, video, affiliates as well as social media and viral marketing techniques. You can also achieve this offline through banner placements, post cards, posters, handbills and business cards to maximize coverage at minimum cost. Mailing campaigns can make a huge impact on a new business by getting the word out too. Save money by investing in technology that can improve your bottom line like faster computers and buy postage from businesses like Stamps.com.

    4. Find Your Target Market: Advertising and marketing will sum up the type of success your business investment has but if you really want to make money fast, you need to find your niche markets. What I mean by ‘niche markets’ is the category of people who are interested in what you have to offer and are ready and willing to do business with your company. It can simply be defined as a very specific market in a larger market field. Find your niche target market and you’ll be reaping huge benefits to your bottom line.

    So there are a few tips to help you get started on your new business. Whether you making a run a music promotion or starting your own music producing business, these tips will put you on the fast track to a successful start up.
