CMU Digest

So, as 2014 insists on getting underway, we have three new things happening here at CMU this month.

New premium service CMU Digest
CMU launches its new premium service CMU Digest this week, monitoring all the news stories published in the CMU Daily and then providing a weekly and monthly round-up of key trends and developments, with analysis on what that means for artists, managers, labels, publishers, promoters and everyone working in music.

The first monthly report, out now, is a special edition looking at key trends in the music business in 2013 and what that tells us about where the sector is heading in 2014. Those already signed up to CMU Digest should have already received this report, but anyone who signs up to the new service this week will also receive a copy, ahead of the first weekly Digest bulletin on Friday.

A personal subscription to CMU Digest is just £4.99 a month, although the special introductory offer is still available for just £29 for the upcoming year, which works out at less than £2.50 a month. For more information and to subscribe online go to Multi-user subscriptions are also available for music companies, contact for more information.

New CMU Insights evening course
Also new from CMU this month is ‘The Music Business In 2014’, a new evening course from the CMU Insights training team.

This eight part course, consisting of eight two hours sessions each Monday night over two months from 20 Jan, provides a complete overview of the sector, with a focus on revenue streams and music rights; how artists can build, analyse and monetise a fanbase; and the deals they need to do to capitalise on all the opportunities.

Places are just £299 including booking fee and VAT, and you will find info here.

Section sponsors in the CMU Daily
And finally in new CMU things, we are pleased to announce the CMU Daily’s first ever section sponsor, with ticketscript coming on board to support our gigs and festival coverage. This kind of support will enable us to continue expanding the free news and information services we offer the wider music community, and it is much appreciated.

ticketscript, the number one provider of self-ticketing software in Europe, will be supporting the Gigs & Festivals section in the CMU Daily and on the CMU website. Confirming that support, the company’s Chief Marketing Office Jenni Young told us: “We couldn’t be happier to be working with Complete Music Update. Like ticketscript, CMU is progressive, innovative and a refreshing service providing valuable insight in the music industry”.

Look out for news on more section sponsors coming soon, and if your company would like to support an area of our coverage contact to find out more.
