Creative Music Marketing: Use Gig Tracker To Track And Analyze Your Musical Income!

If you have yourself a more recent version of Microsoft Office Excel (2007+ I believe) then I recommend you take a look at Gig Tracker down at

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

It's a really nifty little tracking device that helps you write down and manage your income, expense, and details from Gigs that you do.

It's perfect for a musician, or anybody really who is a freelancer of some sort.

Here's a quick example.

A recording studio could use it to track their hours in the studio, and then track expenses on top of that.

I know the idea of another excel spreadsheet seems really dull to you, and that's what I thought when I heard about it.

I figured, "great, another organizational tool that will get lost in a ton of folders, that takes more time to learn to use than it actually saves me".

It's not the case at all though, with examples already on the page, it's a pretty difficult thing to screw up.

Plus, your accountant will love you!

Considering it's completely free, you would be a bit of a fool not to pick up this nifty tool, and I recommend you do just that.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
