12 - Branding Your Show

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: Branding can seem like such a vague and nebulous concept for many, and it kind of is. Ask any marketer or brand expert and everyone will have a different definition for you.  Google says branding is: the promotion of a particular product or company by means of advertising and distinctive design. Branding us so much more than that! To me it’s about the feelings you want your prospects and customers to have when they think about you or your show.  One of the most important elements of your branding is your color palette, which can often inform your logo design, key art, website, social media look and feel, and more. In this episode, we break down how you can start branding your show through a series of questions. Let’s walk through this together...

08 - How Does a Producer Get Paid?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE: In 2009, our founder Ken Davenport wrote a blog which stumped many of his readers. He proposed the concept that Producers should receive a portion of the Author's subsidiary rights on shows that have not recouped on Broadway since it was the Producer’s production that branded the show for subsidiary production in the first place. And while he received a tremendous amount of positive responses from the industry (includes other Producers!!), he also received many questions from readers wanting to know exactly how Producers were compensated.  In this episode, we are sharing the 3 main sources of revenue for a Producer on a commercial musical or play.
