    Very interesting — until the audio cut out at the 26:11 minute mark!

    This is invaluable and is one of the best talks I’ve heard. A proper wake up call. While the title of the talk and podcast might be good at grabbing your attention but it does so much more than talk about Facebook Live. It includes a great summary of how the music industry has changed and you’ll be a changed person an hour later from playing this.
    Follow this up with the Q&A videos he has on his Facebook page plus other interviews on other podcasts from the last couple of years. Thanks CD Baby for inviting Rick on this one and for sharing it out to the world.

    This is probably the best 65 minutes I’ve invested in my career. I’ve been following up with Rick’s videos and it just keeps getting better.
    I am a new (but aged) artist and the CD Baby DYI Podcast has become the main source of my music business education! I found you guys this summer and haven’t stopped listening. I’ve also catching up on past episodes, up to #50. This podcast is definitely the biggest factor in me choosing CD Baby for distribution once I start publishing.
    Thanks again for all you guys do!
    “Hippy” Jim Sloan

    That was great! Very inspiring and useful!

    For what it’s worth you have one of the best marketing podcasts out there! Engaging and informative.

    For this particular episode, I found Rick Barker condescending and patronizing. He pretty much gives the same advice everyone else gives, but does so in the most condescending way. It doesn’t impress me that he worked with Taylor Swift, so he has no right to talk in this tone. Not to say we can’t benefit from being reminded again about good marketing tactics; I just could do without the attitude.

    Otherwise, keep up the good work. I am looking forward to listening to your new Holiday tips podcast.

    Didn’t he admit that was going to be the case in the first minute of the talk? Whatever. My mileage varied. In the next 4 minutes or so I picked up a couple ideas that I see no one doing around here which seem reasonable. That was already a win for me. Anyhow, good day and good luck!

    That’s true for me too. I almost heard all of the podcasts they have so far by now. I’ve been in the music business for almost 40 years now. And as an old schooler I realized some fundamental changes and I thought they were for the worse. With the help of this podcast and some others I learned that chances are even better now. Thanks for that, guys and keep up the good work. Frank Ventura
