    Diving Into Web Data, What Does An Artist Need To Worry About?

    The Music Biz Weekly Podcast #79


    Join me (Brian Thompson) & Michael Brandvold for a 50 min. podcast discussing the recent SF Music Tech conference, in particular the Artist Apps panel, plus a more extended talk on how and when an artist needs to look at the various streams of web data that is flowing at them.

    The web analytics. The insights. The metrics. The app stats. The never-ending numbers.

    It's overwhelming.
    How much data is really necessary?
    When should you take the numbers more seriously?

    Press play and hear what we have to say about it.
