Many artists find it extremely difficult to financially survive when they're making little to no money from shows and either don't have a CD to sell or aren't selling very many copies. Indeed, it can be difficult to cover the basic costs of being a musical artist -- rehearsal space, equipment, mailing lists, etc.

This article is written to provide some simple suggestions and guidelines for obtaining a little cash to keep your act afloat. By no means is this supposed to be a comprehensive or perfect list -- the best ways to make money are through creative models you'll need to come up with yourself -- but here are some basic ideas and advice that I hope you will find helpful.
