Business Survival Lessons from the Music Industry

By Andrew Lock | Posted September 14, 2012

Struggling through tough economic times is nothing new for small business owners, and it takes creativity, fortitude and perseverance to see it through. But the economy isn’t always the cause of tough times. Sometimes industries get phased out through changing technologies and a subsequent inability or unwillingness to adapt. Case in point: the music industry.

In this episode of Help! My business Sucks, our small business marketing expert interviews Bruce Brodeen, a record label executive, about the changes that nearly obliterated the music industry, and how adapting to change – in any industry --is essential to business survival. Brodeen's advice applies to, and can be applied by, any small business. Check it out, and be sure to share your thoughts on the subject in the comments below.

Andrew Lock is a self-described maverick marketer and the creator and host of Help! My Business Sucks, a free, weekly Web TV show full of practical small business marketing tips, advice and resources to help small businesses "get more done and have more fun."
