Brand management for artists (or other personal brands) is a central topic at tamanguu. Every module developed by tamanguu in the future deals with it; just like every artist, every manager and every entrepreneur - whether active or subliminal.

Brand management has a large impact on artist development, because every artist in the music industries can and should be seen, managed and marketed as a brand. The strength and reputation of the brand are significant for the success of music products, as music is an experience. This means that consumers are not able to assess product quality before they consume it.

In addition, the current oversupply of artists and advertising messages requires distinctive artist and music brands. Well-known brands receive more attention from potential customers. Keeping the consumers’ attention is a more difficult task in today’s saturated media environment. It requires the understanding and management of music artists and companies as brands in order to increase the chance to attract and retain the attention and preference of the consumers.
