“Well that’s the life of a starving artist!”

You keep saying this to yourself.

It seems funny in the moment when you poke fun at your own music career...

You know in your heart that you're "just joking."

But you also know that to you, music and money, is no laughing matter.

Making a living as a producer is the one thing you actually want in life.

But instead you work a soul-sucking 9-5—paying your bills by waiting tables or doing similar day jobs.

You clock in and clock out but for those 8 hours a day everything in your soul longs for music. Trust me, I've been there.

For us musicians, we often find ourselves in this torture.

Everything in us wants a life that we are not living.

We step into our 9-5 when we'd rather step into the studio.

You deal with your boss and his clients when you want to be your OWN boss and have your OWN clients.

I get it. This is how all talented artists feel.

The music life we want is right in front of us. But, we struggle to connect the dots from making music, to making a living from that music.

We live life on the wrong side of the microphone, and we don’t know how to make that switch happen. It feels like it’s out of our control, and so we clock in again every Monday and wish it was different.

There is a massive difference between living “for” your music, and living “from” your music.

It’s easy for us artists to say “I live for music!!” because we love it. But when it comes down to it, are we able to say we make a living “from” our music?

You and millions of other artists are talented. You have the recording/mixing equipment, or you might have all the music theory you could ask for. But, you can't shake that "starving artist" label you and your family jokes about. I want to remove that label from your music career, forever.

I want you to know that I have fought those starving artist hunger pains for years myself. It took much trial and error and failure to finally get some food on my plate.

I’m here to pass you the recipe.

I want to teach you how to eat from the music you make. I want you to make progress to more financial success as a musician, producer, or artist. To make this possible for you, I’ve compiled all of my years of experience in this, into a format that you can easily follow, step by step. I call it the Music Income Engine.

Keep reading below to learn more about what you're going to be getting.

Here is everything you'll be getting:

Storytelling on Social Media to Earn a Music Income

In this course you will learn the two most powerful storytelling frameworks you can implement immediately on any social media platform. You will then learn how to create an effective Call to Action to get your fans and clients on board with everything you do—without sounding "salesy."

In the second half of the course, you'll learn how to make the right type of content for the destination medium as well as how to create "smart" tracking links to better understand the habits of your subscribers.

Lastly, I'll show you my YouTube and Facebook strategy for attracting new clients and selling without being pushy or "salesy."

This purchase is covered with my "burn the ships" money-back guarantee.

As with all my trainings, this comes with a 14 day money back guarantee.

But it's unlike any guarantee you've probably ever heard of. 

Here's the thing about guarantees... it gives you a way to back out from achieving what you want.  It allows you to give up too easily on something you want to accomplish.

So if you purchase, go through a couple of trainings and decide to give up, then there is NO GUARANTEE.

There is no way that you did the amount of work needed to achieve your goal. I'm not going to let you give up that easy.

But if you go through the training, do all the work and ON DAY 14, you feel that this was a mistake? You are covered.

I'm doing this because I truly believe it's the best way to ensure you succeed. I know how easy it is to refund something because it's easier than the pain of hard work day after day.

Here's a quick video that I think will change your beliefs about guarantees:

Just in case you were skimming to see what the offer is...

You'll be getting a ridiculously discounted bundle of 5 brand new courses with up-to-date marketing tactics to help you build a music income today.

What Artists Are Saying...

“Ever since joining I’ve had a boost in my sales on Bandcamp, I’ve had a boost in my subscribers on YouTube and my followers on Instagram, but most importantly I’ve had a boost in the response to my music. One of the key things that Ryan at the Indie Music Academy keeps driving home is that you need to share your music through storytelling… and now I’ve been spending a lot more proactive time instead of wasting my time… I really recommend it!”

"It’s such an oversaturated market today that so many underground artists are struggling to get heard and honestly I was one of those artists. But thanks to Ryan and the Indie Music Academy, thousands of people around the world were able to listen and love my music like I thought that they should, and that would have never happened without the resources at this academy. So if you have any doubt in your mind about whether or not this is the right choice for you…it is."

"Ryan is a brilliant songwriter, musician, and music production guru. Ryan also runs the Indie Music Academy where he has trained thousands of independent musicians (including me) on collecting from the complex network of music industry royalties, setting up a performing rights organization, thinking through the fan journey, and a host of other present-day music industry imperatives. Ryan has been instrumental (is that a pun?) in helping develop my ecosphere of websites, social media, and all the behind-the-scenes technologies needed for music promotion, communication, and effectiveness. Even in the midst of Ryan and his wife re-locating from San Diego, California, to Nashville, Tennessee, Ryan made himself available to help me with a crucial promotional challenge, to assure my successful release."
