You would have received an invite to join your Circle, this is where you'll stay in touch with artists.
HOW MUCH DO ARTISTS PAY?
We flat fee the entry into each of the Circles at $25 per month. As artists add other members to there team they would be charged an additional $25.
HOW MANY ARTISTS WILL BE IN MY CIRCLE?
At this stage we're going to limit this to 10 so we can test and fix any issues that pop up.
HOW MUCH TIME TO I NEED TO PUT ASIDE?
This is totally up to you, we'll be completely transparent with artists around how much time you make available and when. An example would be:
xxx makes 1 hour a week available each week to answer questions.
ADDITIONAL SERVICES AS PART OF MY CIRCLE?
We're keen to be working with you to figure out what's possible with the time you have available. We would see these additional services would come with an additional payment. A few ideas are:
- Monthly group Zooms where artists in your Circle can come and ask you questions in person.
- Weekly time available to be booked for a one on one
- A demo submission page where artists can submit music for you to listen to. We would work on setting parameters around this.
We would include this in your Circle description an example would be:
X makes 1 hour a week available each week to answer questions. X also has weekly time available for artists to book and throughout the year will run group Q&A's in which you will be invited to. Each of these services will have an additional charge but only be available to artists within this Circle.
AM I ABLE TO OFFER MY SERVICES OUTSIDE OF YFT TO MY CIRCLE?
If you'd like to offer your services to your Circle that can be booked after they have a chance to know you that is great. We'd ask that this is something we can discuss with you beforehand as we'll be able to build this into your Circle.
WHAT TYPE OF QUESTIONS WILL BE ASKED?
We know some of the questions that will be very specific to each of their projects and some won't easily be answered so easily.
We want this to be a place where you can help the artists as much as possible but when needed they'll be best to book some time to chat with you.
An example of a question would be: 'I'm starting to plan my next release which has 3 singles and into an EP. What's the best way I can structure it?'
Your answer to this could be along the lines of:
Here's a released schedule I've used before. Pick where you think each single is best suited and have a focus on a particular outlet for each.... etc
Don't feel you have to get really specific as it's not going to be possible but answer to the best of your ability and say happy to run over this in more details for your project specifically, shoot me a booking.
HOW WILL I BE ASKED DIRECTLY ABOUT MANAGEMENT, SUPPORTS OPS ETC?
We'll make this very clear on entering the Circle that it's a place to ask questions and learn from the expert and others in the group. Questions along these lines aren't part of what YFT is about.
HOW MUCH DOES YOUR FAVOURITE TEAM TAKE?
On all services we take 30% of fees collected. Less credit card fees then splitting the remainder 70/30.
In terms of offering your services attached to your Circle we would be collecting a subscription fee that would be discussed.
