Want a successful music career? Help me help you!
Hi Guys,

I am a 3rd year University student and am currently writing my dissertation on the implications of the digital age on music and the music industry.
I use the Internet alot in everyday life; as I'm sure you do too, as such I'm particularly interested in the new phase of independent musicians who use the Internet to help them build and establish music careers.
On face value this seems easy but I know that gaining a reputation can be hard, even online!

So, I decided to write my dissertation, working to the question: How has the digital age brought about a new trend of online entrepreneurial musicians?
As such I need an inside perspective; I need your help!
I've constructed a short, easy, 10 question survey that I would love you to fill in, its straight forward and easy; it will literally take 2 minutes!

The sample I'm looking for is generally any musician who strives for a successful career and uses the Internet to do so, as you can see - I'm pretty sure you are all eligible!
My aim is to ultimately be able to identify what habits and factors lead to success, I will be generating results in a couple of months so will come back and share my findings. Hopefully they will be able to aid some of you in furthering your career's or at least give you some ideas!
So, if you think you can help me, or are interested in the results I will generate just click here; http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FJ767GX
Thanks so much for your time   
~ Rach

I completed your survey, but I don't see how it will help, I'm 53 next week - I produce only for fun.

Thankyou!
Well, the plan is to generate results from 2 separate groups of participants; one group such as yourself who will create music for fun/on a smaller scale, and another group who operate on a larger scale and generate revenue streams from using online resources.
Once I have collected a substantial amount of results, I can compare and contrast the 2. Hopefully there will be some definite contrasts between the two! I will then interpret these results which will allow me to generate a list of factors which are vital to creating online success - well, that's the plan!
You may be right, and there will be no difference, either way time will tell
Thanks for completing the questionnaire, I really appreciate it

try http://bandcamp.com/ - a few peeps from around here have music up there, but I dont know where you'd post your question, it's all Sell Sell Sell but I dont know where the forum is 

http://www.icompositions.com/index.php is another good one, join in, try the forums, it's quite a busy place with some cool regulars . Quite a few peeps from here up there too.

I'll be sure to check out the other sites too, from what I've experienced so far I've found there are some really nice little music communities round here
