Thanks for opening this discussion. I appreciate your support.
The initiative needs to come from both parties. Artists need to create more IP to bolster themselves and the Influencers need to show more support with a wider umbrella.
The Influencers are of course people in swaying positions so they are more guarded as they continually risk being perceived negatively by their circle.
Artists, therefore, need to produce IP so as to legitimize and strengthen promotion on the part of the Influencers in order to gain more ‘territory’. I.E. Making it easier for the influencers to show them off without risk of criticism.
This symbiotic growth is probably the only widely acceptable way for us to step out of the mire, I feel.
