Even if you love to hate Taylor Swift, some of her business tips she gave in her op-ed in the Wallstreet Journal provide unique insights that are worth looking into. These insights share her experience with the music industry and social media.
Featured below are five of the insights that an optimistic person in the music industry such as Taylor decided to share in he op-ed.
1. Bye, bye autographs?
“I haven’t been asked for an autograph since the invention of the iPhone with a front-facing camera. The only memento “kids these days” want is a selfie.”
2. Social Media is Key
“A friend of mine, who is an actress, told me that when the casting for her recent movie came down to two actresses, the casting director chose the actress with more Twitter followers.”
3. Fans First, Records Later.
“In the future, artists will get record deals because they have fans—not the other way around.”
4. Overlapping Genres
“Another theme I see fading into the gray is genre distinction. These days, nothing great you hear on the radio seems to come from just one musical influence.”
5. Fans are Key
“I think forming a bond with fans in the future will come in the form of constantly providing them with the element of surprise. No, I did not say “shock”; I said “surprise.” I believe couples can stay in love for decades if they just continue to surprise each other, so why can’t this love affair exist between an artist and their fans?”
