As music industry veterans, We've seen our fair share of snakes and finessing in the business. In Episode 56 of The Cheat Code Podcast, titled "Enough of The Snakes and Finessin'," we delve into the topic of trust in the industry and why it's crucial to understand who you can and cannot rely on.
We start by discussing the importance of engaging with your followers on social media and effectively promoting your content. We share some valuable insights on how to beat the Instagram algorithm and gain more visibility for your posts. As someone who's been in the game for a long time, We can attest that social media has become an essential tool for artists to market themselves and reach their audience.
We then move on to a more serious topic: the prevalence of snakes in the music industry. While we're not here to call anyone out, we want to warn aspiring artists and industry professionals to be careful who they trust. As they often say, "Trust a snake to be a snake." This means that if someone has a history of being untrustworthy or shady, it's important to be cautious when working with them.
We also discuss the role of CEOs in the music industry and why they must do more than play a role. CEOs need to have a deep understanding of how the business works to succeed, and they need to structure their company and work towards their goals. It's not enough to want to play CEO – you must work to make it happen.
Throughout the episode, we emphasize the importance of a great team supporting you. With our fantastic team of Executive Producer Shawna Reed, Sound Engineer Blan3, and Video/Editing/Graphics team Neuland Creatives, The Cheat Code Podcast is the success it is today. It's important to surround yourself with talented, hardworking individuals who share your vision and can help you achieve your goals.
