» Trent Reznor on what to do as a new / unknown artist
Great thoughts. My version:
- Forget about getting rich and famous. Get a day job.
- Start a blog/website and give your art away. Teach people. Share your secrets. Give away the game. Be easy to find. Get fans through your generosity.
- Sell those fans tangible products, or “content souvenirs”, like t-shirts, posters, deluxe edition LPs, etc.
