You, the songwriter and/or performer, who sings, strums, or hits musical instruments for the pleasure of others. If enough others enjoy this music, and a business structure is in place to “monetize” this enjoyment, maybe you can make a living at it while having a ton of fun.

Everyone is starting to use the Internet for order processing these days. All types of merchandisers are looking to sell in as many places and as many ways as they can. They are learning the value of direct customer relations as well because maybe a fan of one of their bands might also buy merchandise from another one of their bands. These folks are also a good way to collect names for your FAN CLUB. See the Fan club manager and webmaster descriptions in the Primary Players section above.
