A.V.A Live Radio: Milan Heger Surviving in the Art Business

Listen in to the show Live at 1pm est today: www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2014/01/10/ava-live-radio-milan-heger-surviving-in-the-art-business

Jax_Favorites_face0Join host Jacqueline Jax as she gets up close and personal with Seattle based architect, furniture designer, and Artist, Milan Heger. Before the 2009 economic recession, Milan Heger was thriving in business and creativity. As the housing market crashed, he found himself among the millions of people waking up at night worried about not only the future of his company but how he was going to provide for his family. In a statement released on September 7,2011 in Entrepreneur Magazine, Milan said, “The biggest pressure is the status of my mortgage and college payments. I felt not like a failure, but like a father who wasn’t doing what he was supposed to do. I’d sit in the car in the driveway and not want to get out. It’s hard and continues to be hard.”

Milan’s experience sheds light on the reality and challenges that every small business owner faces. That reality is that you have to brave great risk to obtain great rewards. Life challenges us at every corner but it’s the people who can pick themselves back up and continue on that defines the winners from the losers. Now were diving into  his story of strength, creativity and determination. And break down the business of Art. From inspiration to creation to marketing, listen to a real conversation on navigating the art world in today’s market place.

Milan Heger : “Discover who you are by discovering who you aren’t.”

His secret to discovering who you are:
1) Find time every day after your normal job to discover and experiment with things you may enjoy or be passionate about.

2) Set aside 1 day a week to pursue your dream or at least contemplate what you would like your life to be like.

3) Pursue what excites you most and find out how to turn it into a career.

Avoiding the Marketing Trap:
1) Don’t get busy and think that you don’t have to market your products.

2) Let the world know about your work using social media pages like twitter,  facebook and linkedin.

3) Arrange gallery showings and art fair exhibits to gain exposure.

4) Find magazines that are specializing in your products and send them a picture for your work with information to their new products department.

From movies to management, we don’t only play the best independent artists from around the world, we are working hard behind the scenes to get their music heard by industry professionals who are already searching for movie sound tracks, indie artist tours, commercials, events, and recording contracts. In addition, A.V.A Live Radio also provides a mentoring program where artists give back to other artists, educational resources on the music industry as well as personal and business branding from industry professionals in our community to those who need help thru our Game Changers Series interviews.

Apple Launches Iphone Music

20130618-001020.jpg

by Pete Pachal June 2013
Apple is diving into streaming music with a new service called iTunes Radio, the company announced at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco today.

Similar to Pandora, iTunes Radio will create themed Internet radio stations based on specific songs, and Apple provides “featured” radio stations as well. The service will be free for users, although it’s supported by ads. However, if you’re an iTunes Match subscriber, you’ll get it ad-free.

SEE ALSO: 10 Better Alternatives to Your iPhone’s Native Apps
iTunes Radio will be available on iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) running iOS 7 as well as the iTunes on the Mac or PC. Some of the pre-packaged stations include Summer Songs and Trending on Twitter (which appears to pull in songs from Twitter Music).

Apple made deals with the major music labels for iTunes Radio in the last few weeks, reports indicate. The company first signed on Universal Music, then Warner and finally Sony just a few days ago.

Although streaming music services have been around for a long time, Apple appeared content to remain the dominant player in music downloads, offering only only an extremely basic “Radio” section of the iTunes app for online radio stations. However, user habits are shifting away from iTunes toward streaming services, market statistics reveal, and Apple clearly decided it need to compete in the space.

Top 10 Tips For Bloggers

Have you stopped to think how times have changed? Do you remember the days when you had to pay for any kind of online or news paper advertising?
I remember reading an article in the New York Times in 2010 discussing the Internet’s phenomenon and the rise of amateur online bloggers in the media.
In fact, Magazines, Designer, PR firms and traditional media are giving noted respect to top bloggers with invites to all the hottest events, free goodies and even hefty paychecks for their undivided attention. Even radio stations had to become Internet savvy with world wide online streams of their programming. And now hear I am, sitting at my desk overlooking the city with a cup of tea sharing my latest research with you in an era of “new media.” The Internet has changed the way we communicate and share information with each other. This change has bread a new generation of highly intelligent and demanding people who want to be entertained. So if you want to draw attention to your products, music, services or web site, you have to evolve into what I like to call a highbred web site. This kind of web site is interactive and rich in social media formatted content. Most importantly, it’s a web site that is updated with fresh fun content often. Weather your sharing photos, daily journals, music, jokes or reporting the latest fashions a blog is the method of choice to own your page and build a following. With that said, its important for you to understand the blogging basics. Here are my top 10 Blogging tips.

Top 10 Tips For Blogging
1) Pretty up your page: use a personal photo or business logos to pretty up your posts and pages. Try to create an interesting and unique page without using a background thats to distracting. A great thing to do, is try out different themes available on sites like wordpress and blogger, then add in your photos and banners for a more interesting and personal touch.
2) Plan Ahead – Try to prepare your content 1 week in advance whenever possible and edit your content often to keep it current. I don’t always have that much time so I like to keep an on going list of topics on my ipad that my fans have requested and research something every day. I also use the wordpress app on my iPad to quickly update posts on the road.
3) Blog often – Keep your page active so your subscribers will always see fresh new content when they visit your page.
4) Be casual and transparent- Keep things simple and honest. Direct your tone towards your readers not over them.
5) Establish your brand voice- Carefully select your image and stay consistent to that theme on your blog.
6) Photo’s- Pictures are a great way to engage your followers so always use at least one photo in your posts.
7) Respond- Always respond to your client and fans. Social media is about building relationships.
8) Link- Use links often to other sites and posts to allow your readers to see more information in support of your content. Be generous to your readers and remember search engines favor valid links. Also remember to proudly post your social media links at the top of your blog and also in your posts.
9) Contests- Everyone knows blog contests and promotions are one of the best ways to bring attention to your blog and bring in new signups. Set up a solid signup that integrates into your social pages so you can make the most of your contest and even get some viral traffic flowing. (I’ll be targeting how to set up a great signup page in a future post so be sure to subscribe)
10) Target Long Tail Keywords instead of single word tags on your posts. Long tail keywords are ones that don’t get the most searches per month but don’t have a lot of competition either. See where I’m going with this?? Setting your target for long tail keywords can get your blog more traffic faster because your going after keywords that others are not directly targeting.

I credit most of my research for this article to the amazing media gurus at Apple and the many top master bloggers I have had the privilege of speaking with over the past few month. I have a ton of more specific blogging tips for you and will be posting those weekly but if you have a question or request for a future post, just leave me a comment below.

Jerry Alfano (General Manager) and Tonino Orsino (Head Chef) at Frank & Dino’s Restaurant made our night so special with amazing wine, food and friendship. The food was fabulous and I’m giving them my top rating for friendly atmosphere, great service, and excellent food. This Italian gem located on Federal Highway in Deerfield Beach offered so many surprises as we walked in the door. From their nostalgic black and white photo’s of Frank Sinatra and personal win wall of the owners race horses to an amazing glass and neon martini bar. Frank & Dino’s had all the charm of a family style restaurant yet with a big city feel of elegance. I had the lemon snapper with broccoli rape and roasted potatoes. It was the best lemon sauce I have ever had- not to strong but full of flavor. We also had the Pork chop marinated in spicy peppers and the snapper braised in a white wine sauce with a medley of seafood. Just as I thought I was done for the night, head chef Tonino Orsino walks out of the kitchen with a tray of his freshest pastry creations and a palate of fresh fruit along with 3 of the best cappuccino’s to top off the night. Outrageously good! Bravo to Owner John Williams and partner Carlo Vaccarezza. I’m definitely hooked and I’ll be back on the weekend to enjoy the live entertainment. I love your style.

A.V.A Live Radio Reaches Out to Gateway Community Outreach /Feed The Children

I had the good fortune of being asked to go cover an event at Westside Park in Deerfield Beach that took place on Wednesday, August 29. This charity event was sponsored by Gateway Community Outreach in conjunction with teleperformance call centers for “Feed The Children” Foundation. They were there to distribute 400 packages to local residents of Deerfield Beach. The day started at 8 AM as the semi tractor-trailer rolls up to unload the pallets of food, water and hygiene products assisted by a local business Deerfield Building Supply owned by Ed Dietrich. Then the 40+ volunteers went into action where they were there to hand out food to the families lucky enough to receive a voucher. This went on until 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
The timing could not have been better as there was a pending tropical storm Isaac threatening South Florida. The winds were already starting to pick up as I made my way to the interview. I got to speak with Pres. and CEO of Gateway Community Outreach Ms. Carol Ray and former Cincinnati Bengals football player Michael Basnight as they give us insight into what their organization does for the community. Also we got to speak with Deerfield Commissioner District 2 Mr. Ben Preston about his community and how this affects them.
It was another successful day for Gateway Community Outreach and if you wish to help out this organization either with a cash donation or to volunteer contact Carol Ray at http://www.gcoflorida.org your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Radio Host Jacqueline Jax enjoys a fun night at The Atlantic Hotel, Fort Lauderdale.
“This location is gorgeous with ocean front views and a beautiful veranda that wraps around the first floor. I had a terrific time enjoying the rain out on the ocean front before meeting up with friends for dinner. It was an extra special surprise bumping into some friends that I haven’t seen in years having cocktails at the hotel. An incredible seafood dinner was served outside tonight over looking the ocean. We took alot of photo’s and ended up hanging out for hours. What a great Friday night. I love the unexpected good times! Those are always the most memorable. Xoxo, Jax

Dr Shino Bay & Jacqueline Jax

Sincerest Thank you to Dr Shino Bay Aguilera

Message from Show Host : Jacqueline Jax

Dear Friends,

I can’t tell you enough how your overwhelming support has helped me get through my illness. I have loved all the letters and sweet wishes that you guys have sent to me over the past few month. I wanted to give you a little update on my recovery. Yesterday, I was visiting Dr Shino Bay Aguilera’s office in Fort Lauderdale for an examination on my leg. From the minute I went in Jake and Alex were so sweet and concerned about my health. It’s always a pleasure to see them with their brilliant smiles and open arms. Dawn (Cosmetic consultant) listened carefully to my story and personally walked me through all my options from skin care treatments for balancing and cleansing after the heavy doses of antibiotics to things that can be done to speed the leg wound healing and then erase the scar. You will adore Dawn, she’s always so charming. I also spoke with Amy (P.A.) extensively about skin peals for my face and what I can expect as the wound heals.

When I saw Dr Shino Bay Aguilera, I was greeted with a big warm hug and smile. After examining my leg, he said the wound is healing well and I am very lucky to have recovered so quickly. Even better news is that he has a procedure that will speed the repair and hopefully make my scar disappear. I’m going to be mapping out the weekly progress for you so you can see just how wonderful Dr Shino Bay Aguilera and his team are. They are the most kind and compassionate people I have ever been involved with and I am so happy that he and his staff are helping me to heal.

Love you guys,
Jax

Step 1: Dr Aguilera used a red light therapy on my leg for 15 minutes that will speed the healing. I had to wear metal glasses that protect my eyes from the rays in the room but the treatment was totally painless and relaxing. I’ll be back in about 1 week for another treatment and will be reporting back as my therapy continues every step of the way.. At the end of the journey, I’ll post a before and after picture of my leg.

Indian Copyright Act Amendments Give Music Artists Ownership Rights

NEW DELHI – In what is seen as a major victory for songwriters, composers and musicians working in the Indian film industry, revised amendments to the Copyright Act now give them better ownership control of their works. Considering India’s film industry is dominated by songs, the amendments – which aim at updating existing laws with international and WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) norms – can have bigger implications on how royalty rates are decided and shared in future.

The Copyright Act (Amendment) Bill 2012 – which now awaits final Presidential approval to become law – was passed in India’s Lower House of Parliament and is aimed at correcting an imbalance in the country’s copyright law which was seen as favoring film producers and record labels rather than the song creators.

Historically, Indian film producers have worked on a work-for-hire basis, employing songwriters, composers and singers for a fixed fees, which denied them revenues from other sources such as cover versions and especially ringtones, which have become increasingly lucrative.

Losing EMI to Universal Would Be a Tragedy, Says Waterman
May 24, 2012 Rob Davies

Two of the most prominent figures in the British music industry have come out against the pounds sterling 1.2bn takeover of record label EMI by Universal. Eurocrat competition officials have until September to deliver their verdict on a deal Universal insists will save the label that has hosted Edward Elgar, The Beatles and Coldplay. But music producer Pete Waterman and DJ Paul Gambaccini told the Daily Mail that if Universal — owned by French media giant Vivendi — grabs EMI, Britain’s rich musical tapestry could soon be threadbare. “Losing another British company is a tragedy, but even looking at this from a dispassionate point of view something has gone wrong,’ laments Waterman, who produced 22 Number One singles. “Universal has near total dominance of the music industry and we’ve reached a situation that is totally uncompetitive.”

Gambaccini has “reacted with horror’ to the consolidation that has affected the music business and warns that if Universal were ever sold, Britain would be in real danger of losing a “national treasure.” The EC is chiefly concerned that Universal would end up with more than a 50pc share of digital music sales in some countries, including the UK. Rivals say this would allow the label to hoover up the best artists and hike the price of their music. Universal points out that 95pc of music is illegally obtained, making it all but impossible to press consumers on price. It also insists that today’s music industry is more competitive than ever, with the internet and social media affording artists dozens of routes to market. Some 28pc of industry revenues come from “indies” such as XL Records, which released Adele’s blockbuster album 21.

A spokesman said: “Pete [Waterman] has not spoken to anyone at Universal Music about this.
“If he did, we would explain why his concerns are misplaced given the strong competitive environment in today’s music market. It [EMI] will fare much better with us than with non-music owners, who would only asset-strip the business.” The EC has until early September to deliver its verdict on competition, but perhaps the greater concern should be financial.

Universal says it has a better track record of investing in quality artists such as PJ Harvey, Rufus Wainwright and Nick Drake — than rivals such as Warner. But investment demands cash and parent company Vivendi isn’t in the finest of fettle. It is preparing a “drastic” cost-cutting drive at French mobile phone division SFR and is also being sued by investors who claim it inflated the value of its share price. Even if the EC dismisses competition concerns, the future of Britain’s greatest record label will remain uncertain for as long as Vivendi continues to flounder.
