Make music on your own terms
Throw the Fight have spent years making music and cultivating an engaged audience. Growing and owning the relationship with their fans means they can continue to put out music on their own terms.
“Email marketing is our #1 tool to stay in touch with our audience, sell merch (when we can’t tour), and promote our shows and releases. Your email list is data that you own and it’s the only reliable way to reach your audience. ”
Ryan Baustert, Throw the Fight
Fund your career
Adanna Duru’s star may have started rising with appearances on The Voice and American Idol, but she’s been singing and working in music since she was 14 years old. To continue funding her music career, Adanna recently transitioned her private vocal coaching to online courses and uses email marketing to communicate with hundreds of different people at the same time.
“Keeping track of all my leads was incredibly difficult. I didn’t know how to organize my customers from non-customers. I felt individually responsible to be on top of each person I saw as they subscribed. But now, my email sequences do all that for me.”
Adanna Duru, Pop & R&B Artist
