About a year ago I got a new client without even trying.

Here’s the story.

A fantastic independent artist here in Nashville decided she finally wanted to buy a Pro Tools rig for herself. She wasn’t looking to be a Pro Tools expert or anything. She just wanted to be able to record ideas at home and familiarize herself more with the technical side of recording.

Unfortunately, she was having a hard time figuring things out.

She and I had only met maybe once or twice, but a mutual friend of ours asked me if I could give her a hand.

So? I gave her a free copy of Understanding Pro Tools, and went on my merry way.

She was thankful.

That was that, I thought.

Fast forward a few months. She needed someone to engineer an album she was producing for an artist out of LA. Guess who she contacted?

Yep…ME.

She hired me to record almost all the tracks for that album. PLUS (get this) she hired me to mix the album as well.

…and none of that would’ve happened if I hadn’t helped her get up and running with Pro Tools.

So what does this have to do with you and your studio?

Rather than waiting around for clients to find YOU and hand you money, try this instead:

HELP PEOPLE.

Provide REAL value to someone. Prove you know what you’re doing.

Then things tend to start “falling in your lap.”

By the way, I’m doing a live webinar later this month. The topic? A whole bunch of ideas on how to get new clients.

  • Joe,

    I really love your videos: they are valuable for both novice and skilled engineer, because it’s always healty to have a different point of view on EQ, Comp, mixing ecc…

    All the best!
