THE MUSIC MARKETING VAULT!

If you’d like to know how to turn your music into a profitable business and promote yourself like a major label artist (without needing the major label), then keep reading…

Here’s the scoop:

I’m Rick Barker. I’m the former manager of Taylor Swift and marketing consultant to the major record labels.  I’ve also helped thousands of indie artists turn their passion into a full-time income via my coaching programs.

Here’s why this important for you:

Most Indie Artists Aren’t Successful For One Main Reason…

Are you ready for this?

They don’t take the time to get good at the business side of the industry.  Because of this, they’re unable to build a large fan base and grow their music business in a way that is sustainable and produces results.

But that ends now.

Allow me to introduce The Music Marketing Vault…

The Music Marketing Vault reveals all of the most powerful music marketing strategies that are working today and that any indie artist can use to grow their fanbase and earn a living from their music.

It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new and don’t have more than 100 followers across all platforms right now.

Even if you feel stuck in overwhelm, confusion, or a pattern of lackluster results, the information inside The Music Marketing Vault will let you achieve results far beyond the average indie artist out there. 

Bottom line:

If you have the ‘it’ factor, the music, the drive, but you just can’t seem to find your fan base…

If they like and comment all over the place, but when you ask for the follow few of them do it…

If you’re transitioning from your day job to full-time musician…

If you’ve ever felt like there’s ‘not enough time’ or ‘not enough money’ to successfully promote your music…

If you’re scratching your head over all the apps or social media sites and don’t know where to focus…

If you struggle with knowing the next step (or whether the step you are currently taking is the right one)…

My “No Nonsense” Guarantee!

Here’s how it works:

I’m well known in the industry for being a straight shooter.  Can I guarantee The Music Marketing Vault will “automatically” make you a success?  No one can promise you that.

And anyone who does is lying to you.

For starters, I don’t know your work ethic or the quality of your music.

(Both of which are important factors in how far you’ll go.)

That said, if you’re willing to put the work in, these methods WILL work for you.  Just as they have for thousands of my students.

So here’s what I’m willing to do:

Go through the training in The Vault for A FULL 30 DAYS (which is more than enough time to view it all)…and if you don’t think it’s the best training on music marketing you’ve ever seen…if you’re not 100% certain it’s exactly what you need to take your business to the next level…

Simply let us know and we’ll promptly refund every penny of your investment.

In this way, you risk nothing.

(In fact, I risk more in this transaction than you do.)

Ask around –

I stand behind my products 100%.  I have a great reputation in the industry which I protect like my life depends on it!  You can count on me being a man of my word.

You can’t afford to drag your heels on this.

So if turning your music into a profitable business that lets you live life on your terms sounds good to you…
