Indie artists: 'tis the season for new listeners

It's Christmas time and what better way for indie artists to get maximum exposure than as a Christmas gift? It's a well known fact that music sales spike with the Christmas holiday, why not have your EP, single or project be a part of this year's drive.

Re-gifting is a terrible idea...have your friends and family share your amazing project as a Christmas gift for someone else and link yourself to a new audience, new listeners and potentially new fans and supporters.

Not sure your hard copies will make it through the mail in time for Christmas? Create download codes for purchase instead. Want to really boost sales for Christmas? Special, holiday pricing never hurts and could prove to be the boon your project sales needs!

Also, in the truest spirit of Christmas, you can also choose to 'gift' your music to new listeners. The end game for recording an album should include connections to the public in mind. Should you find yourself in need of a new or extended audience, "free" will always 'sell'. You may also consider a performance at a local nursing home or rehab facility. The spirit of gratitude overflowing at these residences will bless not only the residents, but you as well.

This is the perfect time to put your project in the hands of new listeners, regardless of the price point. As a 12 year old, getting Kirk Franklin & the Family "Christmas" meant everything to me! "Silent Night", my favorite song from the project was the radio single. I remember listening to the whole album until March of the next year! For listeners who've bought your single and not the album, this is also a compelling time for them to experience your full length album.

That album made that Christmas one of the most memorable of my life. Choose this year to make Christmas memorable for not only you, but for your new fans!

Curious

I was answering my emails yesterday. I thought I might share a short one with you readers. 

Curious ask this question, "What are the seven spirits of God?"

Well Curious, lets look and try to answer that fantastic question!

Isaiah 11:2 

 2And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.

Answer: The "seven spirits of God" are mentioned in Revelation 1:4; John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 3:1; These are the words of him who holds the seven spiritsb of God and the seven stars 4:5; And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. and 5:6And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.  .

1 — the Spirit of the Lord;
2 — the Spirit of wisdom;
3 — the Spirit of understanding;
4 — the Spirit of counsel;
5 — the Spirit of might;
6 — the Spirit of knowledge;
7 — and the Spirit of the fear of the LORD.

You’re Equipped For a Purpose

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."Eph 2:10"

God uses people like you, regular folks with work and family responsibilities, mortgages and busy lives. The Bible says, “We are…created…to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Note the word “prepared.” It’s the same word that’s used for making sure a team has the training and equipment it needs to win. The truth is, we are “God’s instruments to do his work” (1Pe 2:9 ). 

When do you know the true value of an instrument? When it’s in the hands of a master! So put your life into the Master’s hands and watch what He does with it. He “saved us…not because of anything we did… but because of God’s purpose…before time began” (2Ti 1:9 ). 

And He “has given each of [us] a gift from his great variety…to serve one another” (1Pe 4:10); “gifts…to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church” (Eph 4:11-12). 

Do you still think your life doesn’t count for much? Jesus said, “Go and make followers of all people in the world…Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you, and I will be with you always” (Mt 28:19-20 ). You’re not just another face in the crowd; your life has value and purpose, even on those days when you feel totally inadequate. 

So, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart…since…you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward” (Col 3:23-24 ). Can you think of any greater incentive than that moment when you stand in His presence and hear, “Well done,” for giving it your best shot?
