The Economics of the Long Tail

story © Michael Betancourt | published April 22, 2008 | permalink | TwitThis Digg Facebook StumbleUpon  |  


Robert Rich discusses the economics of being a small, independent artist/producer. His experiences agree with my own, much smaller ones arrived at over a shorter period. The conclusion he does not provide, but hints at, is that to survive within the long tail as an artist you need to already be established.... and even then it's uncertain.
