Music Business Plan

Business Plan Articles

There are many different business model structures for companies in the music industry. For instance, some serve the upstream market such as production studios and musicians, whereas others focus on the downstream market including promotions and events management. Pro Business Plans has worked with many music companies to create professional business plans for investment and strategy. This article outlines what is included in the plan and how it is structured.

Music Business Plan

A custom business plan for a music company depends upon several factors, but is directed based upon the nature of the company. However, it is very important to communicate how the company will be uniquely positioned in the market relative to its competition.

If you are a music group, this may be your extended network of your group following or niche domination for a production agency. These advantages are generally communicated in three main areas of the business model, marketing plan, and financial projections. The following section outlines each section in more detail.

Business Model

The business model section of a music business plan is designed to communicate what it does relative to the completion. It constitutes the majority of the business plan and describes how the business will operate and what it will do to generate a profit. If your music business plan is designed for investment, the business model should also communicate what the company’s competitive advantage is.




Marketing Plan

The marketing strategy section of a music business plan is designed to present how the company will acquire customers. If you are a band, it is likely that you will leverage social media and public relations along with building a brand identity that resonates with your target market. If it provides services to musicians, it may want to focus on personal selling to regional musicians and having a presence on regional directories. The marketing strategy typically covers the overall branding of the company, in addition to a detailed plan and budget over the next six months.




Financial Projections

The financial section of a music business plan is very critical if you are providing the plan to seek investment. This may include a three to five-year period of financial projections that include a detailed breakdown of expenses. The music industry is struggling in the perception of investors due to black market peer to peer sharing and a highly fractured market. Therefore, it is very important to demonstrate that the company has a clear path to profitability and the marketing strategy will support a low way to acquire customers. Additional financial models may also be created in order to better understand the risk sensitivity level.
