    So for those library composers who are doing this fulltime, how important do you gauge investing your time into social media is to the success equation? It seems to me that many if not all library musicians are fairly anonymous. More important is to establish relationships with libraries that represent you in a positive sense. Is this accurate?

    IMO – a long-standing career in this biz (if it’s even possible starting out now) relies heavily on personal relationships at the point of publishing. Not with end users. Again IMO, social media is not the place to develop personal publishing relationships. In their office, on the phone, in the studio is how you develop personal relationships in this biz that last.

    I mean, I know it’s a brave new world. But those types of business relationships span pretty much all business.

    Just a question.. How many of us are in contact with their libraries, execs, and sales teams/staff. Just to say hi, check in, and see how they are doing?

    I cannot explain how many times that has been the difference between someone telling me about upcoming projects, and that I was glad that I got in touch to remind them that I am available. This is a business of selling, cultivating relationships, and follow-ups & follow-thru..
