I ENGINEER MUSICIANS' GROWTHHi, I'm Andrew, the "Music Growth Engineer". Some of you may still know me as the Musician's Web Keeper. I’m the founder of Dotted Music, a music industry blog and a full-service digital marketing agency for music brands. I also run the WeSpin growth training and community platform for music artists, and host the Music Growth Talks podcast. I’ve been in the music business for 15 years, as an Editor-in-Chief of Ultimate-Guitar.com (the world's biggest guitar website), pirate radio host, live events promoter, drum & bass DJ, consultant, blogger and speaker. Since recently, I've been getting more active on my professional Instagram account, in case you want to follow me there! You can also find more about me at andrewapanov.com.
I help artists and music startups grow for a living. To get a better sense of what I teach, you can sign up to my free email-based course called Fan Engagement Faculty at andrewapanov.com/fef.
WHY TO BECOME A PATRONBecome my patron if you want to access exclusive music marketing and business knowledge, tested in the field. Helping music brands is my job, and I learn or create new growth tactics and strategies daily. I've started this Patreon community to share my discoveries with you.
As a patron, you get access to a weekly patrons-only podcast (comes with your own unique audio RSS feed), marketing lessons, advice to inspire you to create more, live video streams (coming soon), direct access via a special phone number so you can text me if you need an urgent advice, and more.
Then, if what I've been sharing over the past decade via my writing, audio/video series, and talks, has positively affected your career, there are few better ways to show your support than by becoming my patron. It's almost as good as treating me with a vegan meal and a pint of IPA.
Producing a podcast is very time- and resources-consuming. I spend at least 8 hours a week on each show, and that's on top of the work Jerson, my audio engineer, and Nela, Dotted Music's marketing assistant, put into Music Growth Talks so you can learn from our guests. Your pledges directly support all that work, so thank you.
