Is there a IM market for what I do?

10 replies
About six months ago, I decided to start a small freelance business called White Canvas Productions. Its a creative service business that specializes in graphic design and audio production. Graphically, my work consist of print and Wix websites. I also do audio production that consist of writing and producing music for recording artist and commercials for businesses. It's been a slow start and I'm looking for advice to bring my business to IM. Is there a IM market for what I do? Would businesses pay for commercial music? Any comments and suggestions would be valuable.

Thanks

    I think there is an IM market for just about anything. Its all about research and finding that targetted group of people interested in your services. Do a very basic keyword search to see how many people are looking for services that you provide. Also If possible check out forums and blogs with information regarding stuff that you do.
    You may need to add a few skills to diversify. The best way or the fastest way to get started in the IM market relating to your skills is Creating Graphics and Websites for IMers. You could offer services to Internet Marketers relating to any niche or subject and offer them graphics and websites or audio production if they are interested. That could get your feet wet and get some contacts and help in networking.
    There is quite a few ways to find out how you going to work in the IM but you could start off with the initial research that may help you promote your services or rather provide new services to the market.
    Hope it Helps.
    I am not an expert IMer but these are just a few thoughts I came up with after reading your post.

      I asked this same question here.

      http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...what-i-do.html

      I got a alot of good responses and I'm creating my first WSO as we speak.

      If you are a good commercial muscian you know there are tons of sites that you can sell your stock music on like istock.com and revostock.com and many many more. I buy music from those two a lot myself for video projects.

      If you have knowledge on how to break into those businesses you can write an ebook using what you have learned to guide others to the real truth about the music business and what they don't teach you in school. Good luck man, you can do it.

      BTW I really like your design work. It's very good.

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate the input. The audio side of what I do is really my passion, but it doesn't bring in much money. So I am sometimes forced to do more graphics than audio. But I haven't really tried to sell my music on commercial websites so I think I will give that a try.

    You said you are into producing music right?

    Here is something I came across which will work great for you if you are starting in IM. check out wso forum and search for mark lyford. his website is Millionaire Challenge | MarkLyford.com

    but wat u need to do is chk his wso out and see what he is doing. I actually purchased his wso for $7. He has made 30 sec audio files for internet marketers to use for their websites n opt ins. You don't even have to go to commercial websites for now. you could start right here at the warrior forum. you can input your own ideas and do much better because i was watching one of the videos on his website and he has actually made those audios on a some cheap/free audio production software.
    Let me know what you think. I just thought it might help.
    cheers

    Wow, those songs are actually demo files you get when you buy a Mac and use Garageband. Everything I do is written and produced by myself in my own studio. Interesting bit of information Maddi, thanks for the info. I think there might actually be a market here...

      Awesome. See how little things we don't care about can soon turn out to be a profitable income idea. He actually made around $250 from that wso. I'm sure you could do much better. It wouldn't cost you a dime as you are a producer urself and will make you enough money to get your feet wet. I'm glad I could be of any help.

      Good luck with your ventures.

    You have service that many IM would find
    of value. You may have to market to them
    in different way. Creating a landing page
    with packages the put the two together.

    Look at doing a WSO or place an ad for
    Hire with a few awesome packages.

    Won't Be Denied,

    First of all - very cool page but the flash is a little annoying. Make your page more accessible and enable faster loading. Apart from that you are very talented and you will find a market for what you do in three steps:

    Find out about your customers and what they need
    Adjust
    Sell

    Those are three important points and - of course they are shortened.
    What can you sell, that your customers might really need and what kind of competition do you have? How does your competition work and what can you do better?
    How can you present the result of your idea and convert it?
    What ways do you offer your customers so they can pay easily and get what they have payed for.
    A satisfied customer is the best advertising.
    Good Idea. Go for it!
    Good Luck
