Your creation isn’t only art, it’s a business.
With the diversification and the digital shift, the entertainment industry is moving towards a service-based industry worldwide. A service-based thinking is required.
The traditional cultural environment, especially the entertainment industry is changing fast. Independent & smaller industry players have less and less outlets to distribute their product but need to invest more and more into visibility in competitive markets.
Building your own North American or European branch is capital intensive and the shrinking physical market volume and the digital income that is not covering the physical downside, is making the market entry and return on investment an even bigger hurdle. And still, especially niche genres, depend on physical formats and a mix of all format revenue streams still.
Many consumers don’t have the same predilection for amassing collections of recordings or to go to concerts anymore. Over the past years more devises, more channels, more stores, more options overall have been rising. New market opportunities opened up. Everything is one mouse click away and format diversification is a reality. Overall, the offers to enjoy music has multiplied in many different ways.
New forms of how to build brands, design and sell products, set up events or expose talent are necessary.
