Earnings and Measure of Success
The measure of success in the life of an indie artist is based on a growing audience and appreciation for the music. Although it’s good that people appreciate your music, it’s preferable to convert the appreciation to dollars (profit).
Even a professional or hobbyist painter requires new brushes, paint or canvass to continue producing more masterpieces. The same applies to indie artists.
However, indie artists don’t rely on a music label to sell music records produced.
They depend totally on their music and audience to continue producing more music and doing what they enjoy the most.
