“Thank you!”

5 Ways to Get Fans to Hear Your Music

5 Ways to Get Fans to Hear Your Music

[Read/Study/Understand/Learn/Apply John 4:1-26]

By RicardoButler / ReAsOnDiSciPLe

A lot of cats that are trying to get their music out there really, really suck at it. Why? Because they have never learned how to do it. They see people dropping links and they assume that’s the best practice. Hardly.

There is an old sales sequence that is found in virtually EVERY sales message around the world. It’s basic human psychology. But even better, Jesus was the original inventor of it–AIDA.

SHAPE Pt 5 Using Ministry Gifts in the Music Industry: Encouragement, Giving, & Leadership

SHAPE Pt 5 Using Ministry Gifts in the Music Industry: Encouragement, Giving, & Leadership

SHAPE Ministry Gifts

SHAPE Ministry Gifts

By Ricardo ‘ReAsOn’ Butler

This is the fifth part of a mini-series of blog articles concerning how God designed you in His image. It’s called the SHAPE principle. I am pretty sure you have heard of it by Pastor Rick Warren from both his books The Purpose Driven Life and The Purpose Driven Church. But what I want to do now is see how we can apply the ministry or body gifts to the hip-hop ministry, industry, and culture.

 

“Oh yes, You SHAPED me first inside, then out;
You formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank You, High God—You’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
You know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, You watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before You,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.”
(Psalms 139:13-16, The Message).

 

Your ministry and business are an expression of not God, but of God working in you through your unique divine design and S.H.A.P.E., which are …

 

  • Spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Cor. 12:1-11, 28-31; Eph. 4:11-12),
  • Heart {passion, desire, burden, vision, mandate, cross, values, interests},
  • Ability {natural talent, skills, expertise},
  • Personality {temperaments: Driver, Expressive, Analytical, and Amiable},
  • Experiences {family, educational, occupational/vocational, spiritual, ministry, and painful}.

10 Things to Do to Build a Musical Fan Base Jesus’ Way

10 Things to Do to Build a Musical Fan Base Jesus’ Way

[Read/Study John 1:35-51]

By RicardoReAsOnButler

I always asked the Lord in my private time, Lord if you were in the music industry in my time, how would you reach out to them?” This is not a question of, “How do I get MY music out there” but more of a, “How can I help my brethren—the Hip-Hop artists of God—advance the Kingdom of God Your Way and for Your glory and not ours?”

 

The funny thing is that Jesus always gives me the same answers over and over and I never quite get it or comprehend it. The three Scriptures that He always gives me are the same ones He keeps repeating to me. He says,

Three Areas where I can Best Help the Music Industry

God's Three Eternal Purposes of the Pit By Ricardo Butler

By ReAsOn DiSciPLe

 

On December 12th, 2012 (12/12/12) I left the music ministry, industry, and hip-hop culture to take a time to rest and to prepare for graduation from Full Sail University. That day was my 34th birthday and I had dropped Disk 2, Messiah Christ: The Last Revelation from the “MC” series. So I re-released it as a double album with Disk 1, Master Constructor.
