Why Most Songwriters Have No Luck With Their Music and What You Can Do About It

As a Songwriter, It’s Important to Know There Are Methods You Can Use in Your Songs to Get People to Want to Hear Your Music

We’ll Talk About Those Methods Here…

Have you ever had any of these things happen with your music?

  • You wrote a song you felt was really strong, but it just didn’t get the response you hoped for. You were thinking it would be the song to propel you to greatness, but it never happened.
  • You had a song that people told you they loved, but still no one actually bought it or told their friends about it.
  • You submitted a song to a radio station or for placement in a TV show or film, but never heard back from anyone, leaving you to believe your song wasn’t up to their standards.
  • You posted your song to a social media site, thinking you’d get a ton of great feedback, but hardly anyone commented on it at all. And if someone did, it was one of your friends.
  • Or maybe you’ve written a great song that had some success, but you haven’t been able to recreate that experience for yourself. (By the way, if that’s the case, you probably lucked into what works without understanding what it was. That’s why you weren’t able to make it happen again.)

If you’ve experienced any of these scenarios you may just need to know the specific elements that most successful songs have in common. After all, those elements are what’s making them appealing to listeners. Writing something that’s “cool” is one thing, but to have it be something desired by a lot of people is a something entirely different.

The great part is you can incorporate these elements into your music without compromising yourself as an artist. You might be afraid that if you learn or apply certain techniques to your music, your songs will be too cookie cutter. You don’t have to worry about that. There are plenty of approaches you can use that will make your music better, without forcing it into a sound you’re not interested in. You’ll keep all your creativity, without becoming a “cookie cutter” artist. By taking certain approaches to songwriting, you can greatly increase the chance of your listener wanting to own it.

Do You Want to Be an Innovator?

I used to think I was the greatest songwriter around. The truth was I was far from it, because I hadn’t learned any of the concepts that can make a song great.

I wanted to be an innovator and do whatever I wanted, but I didn’t realize that before you innovate you have to know the methods that have worked again and again. Then you can stray from them. If you just do whatever you what, whenever you want, without learning, it’s a recipe for a song that’s just messy. Believe me, I learned that the hard way. I once had a song that went from rock, to funk, to jazz all in the same song! I thought it was great because it was original, but needless to say my listeners had no idea where I was taking them with that kind of music. I was trying to innovate before I knew anything about what makes a song successful.

Then I realized that once you know the ideas that go into a successful song, you can use them to make your song great, or you can creatively stray from those same ideas to make your song innovative. Either way, you win. But you have to know what those concepts are first.

Once I realized my songs weren’t working, I decided to build a solid songwriting education for myself and make it my mission to know what makes songs listeners want to hear and own. I read books, and went to seminars and workshops given by the best and most accomplished songwriting teachers around. I learned all the best tips, tricks and techniques there are. Some of what I learned worked and some didn’t. But the stuff that worked, worked incredibly well.

As I started to learn more and more about songwriting, I developed the ability to see what made successful songs work so well, while other songs didn’t. It became almost instantaneous when I listened to a new song.

I ended up analyzing a ton of hit songs for articles on my own website and for other great songwriting websites, like USA Songwriting Competition’s Blog and CD Baby’s Do It Yourself Musician’s Blog. I’ve even had my writings appear as examples in the book Songwriting Without Boundaries, by Pat Pattison, who’s an acclaimed Lyric Writing Professor at Berklee College of Music.

Apply the Best Ideas to Your Music

Once I noticed I could see songs in this way, I realized I’d have to put these ideas into an online video course to be able to give other songwriters the ability to clearly see what can make their song work, while sparing them information that doesn’t work. Not to mention saving them time too.

And that’s what I’ve done. I took all the best information on melody writing, lyric writing, chord progressions and even coming up with song ideas and put it into an online course called How to Write Songs That Sell.

This course will teach you two methods for writing a song from start to finish. The first method is called the Find Inspiration Method, where you’ll learn how to specifically draw inspiration and get ideas from other songs, and turn them into ideas that are completely your own. You’ll be able to dismember a current song, examine the parts, change them and then put them back together to create a whole new song of your own. You’ll never understand an existing song (or your own song) so well as when you take this approach.

The second method you’ll learn is the Do It Yourself Method, where you won’t be relying on other songs at all. It’ll show you how to create songs people want to hear completely from your own brain.

If you decide to combine parts of these two methods together, you’ll see great results. Great artists are always looking to other artists for ideas, while at the same time innovating from their own minds. If you combine the two methods, you have a great opportunity to do that yourself.

So, What is How to Write Songs That Sell All About?

How to Write Songs That Sell is a comprehensive 5 module program that walks you through all the pieces you need for creating a song people want to own.

It takes you through the entire process of writing a song so you could drastically improve your songwriting in just days.

Each module is broken down into small and absorbable pieces for easy learning and fast implementation. This will also make sure you don’t get overwhelmed.

Every time I've taken an online course, I’ve found the best way to learn is to start by watching the videos so I can have the concepts shown to me and easily explained.

Then if I need to revisit one of the ideas or concepts I learned, I’ve always found it helpful to have a transcript, since it makes those concepts really easy to find when I need them.

I also like the idea of having the audio of what’s in the videos, since they let you absorb the contents of the course anytime and anywhere you want. Plus, the audio format makes it easy to listen to the contents of the course several times, getting it ingrained in your brain so you hardly even have to think about what to do.

For those reasons, I’ve created How to Write Songs That Sell as an online video course, but I’ve also included a downloadable pdf transcript and mp3 audio file of each module.

If you learn the same way I do, you’ll find having the information in all three of these formats helpful. And if you don’t absorb information the way I do, you can choose whichever format works best for you and how you learn.

2 Methods + 5 Modules

Since great artists frequently reference other artists they’re inspired by and they also innovate from their own minds, the modules in this course are broken up into 2 different methods, as I mentioned earlier:

  • The 1st method is called the Find Inspiration Method which shows you how to come up with ideas for your songs by specifically referencing existing successful songs and stories.
  • The 2nd method is called the Do It Yourself Method, which shows you how to generate ideas from your own head, in a way that will get rid of your writer's block forever.

To give you an idea of the depth of this program, let's take a look at what you'll find inside each module.

The Melodies Module

This module will show you how to write creative but catchy melodies for your songs. You don't have to be a naturally gifted melody writer in order to come up with great, memorable melodies. In this module we cover:

It gives you 6 chord charts with all the chords available to you in 3 major modes (Ionian, Lydian and Mixolydian) and 3 minor modes (Aeolian, Dorian, Phrygian) in every key, so you can experiment with a variety of different sounds when you're writing.

Between all of the modules you’re getting in multiple formats, the invaluable Chord and Melody Writing Cheat Sheet AND the 70 bonus lessons and audio segments, this program would easily be worth that and more.

But while I was thinking about what the cost should be, I realized I want the price to be low enough that you’d be surprised and excited about how affordable it actually is.

So here's what I've decided to do...

Instead of $297 or $247 for the whole How to Write Songs That Sell program, for today you're going to get access to everything for just $97.

That price will not stay this low for much longer, so if you’re even considering taking advantage of this deal, do it NOW by clicking the big orange button below. You’ll have immediate access to all of the materials.

At this price, anyone who's not jumping at this probably isn't right for the course.

Also, what kind of offer would this be, if I didn't give you a complete money back guarantee?

60 Day 100% Money Back Guarantee

So you can see how serious I am about everything I’ve told you about this course, take 60 days to go through the material so you can put everything into action and see if it does everything I said it would for you.

If you’re not satisfied for any reason, no worries — just send me a quick message within 60 days from your date of purchase and you’ll get every penny of your money back. No questions asked.

This way How to Write Songs That Sell either delivers to you everything I promised it would, or it costs you nothing
