So, last I posted I mentioned the new direction I was heading thanks to Life Visioning. That is going well and much more has come about since.
My company IndieHitMaker.com recently helped our client, One Less Reason, chart #1 in the country on the Billboard Heetseekers Album chart. They even charged on the Billboard 200, Independent Artist and Hard Rock charts! That is truly incredible and we’re grateful to provide the service we do for all of our artists.
I’m also enjoying posting the daily messages / guidance at my other blog, www.askrealitylove.com. You can always find out what I’m focusing on mentally / spiritually there. In fact, check out the latest message here and subscribe if you like:

Although most of us are all too familiar with the plight of the major label CD sales business model, the truth is, CD sales remains a viable source of revenue for performing independent, DIY and unsigned artists. That trend doesn’t appear to be slowing down iether.
Unfortunately, the majority of these sales go unreported to Soundscan, but we’ve put out a free report to not only shed light on this issue, but to assist independent artists with leveraging ALL their sales:

They key to becoming a better singer/songwriter, performing artist is GROWTH.
Grow for the better in every area you can.
Here are two quick resources I became an affiliate of because they helped me overcome two very common artist pitfalls – not growing as a songwriter and not growing as a singer:
1. The Songwriting Genius Within You
Simply put, one of the best writing resources I’ve found that goes beyond simple song structure and a lot of the basic tips you find in other songwriting courses. This is about little-known techniques that help you tap into true Genius and the science behind it. You also get a great discount from the author of this remarkable resource by clicking here.
2. Singing Success
Vocal coach to the stars (Keith Urban, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Haley Williams & more) and creator of Singing Success, an amazingly effective vocal training program you can download online, Brett Manning will help you improve your voice and gain a full octave – Guaranteed! I’ve written about this resource many times because I use it and it works. Click here to see for yourself.
If you have a business, this is for you. One of my all-time favorite internet/marketing/thought pioneers, #1 best-selling author Mark Joyner – the man people like Dearl Miller call “the greatest marketing mind of our generation” has just released his new book, but it’s not yet available at your local bookstore.
Instead, he’s letting you download it now for free.
If you want to learn how to grow your business, this is an absolute must-read.
And the Integration Marketing Deal Board you’ll find there, used properly, could turn out to be one of the most powerful marketing resources on the net.
Quick update on IndieHitMaker.com. We launched a brand new “Pay Per Report” pricing plan for independent touring artists that allows them to sign up for Venue Sales Reporting (live show CD Sales reporting) to Soundscan for only $33 a year and $5 per report. Its great for artist with only a few shows lined up each month but they want to ensure they are reporting their sales.
Of course, for busier artists, we still have the monthly and annual plans (greatest overall savings).
