When I was a kid, one thing that often entertained me was seeing street musicians. Whether it's one lone person on a guitar or a full band, it was always entertaining to see. With the pandemic happening as well as the world changing and converting to adapt to the digital age, it's often more difficult for any musician for that matter, be it on the streets or at home to make money in their work, let alone tips.
When I first started CIEIRMusic, one of my first goals was to invoke my love for street musicians in all aspects including the money-making aspects and encourage fellow musicians to do the same. I believe no musician should be without a tip jar.
On my official website I have invoked this love by setting up a section dedicated for me to use various funding sites, as a form of tip jar on the digital level.
On top of advertising my Tip Jar, I propose to my fellow musicians and artists, that you do the same thing in similar manners. That you all get tip jars of your own. A very wise person once told me that $5 here and $10 there can get you very far in the long run even if you're not selling anything, because it all eventually accumulates to at worst extra money in your pocket for the bare essentials and at best a vast amounts of great wealth. It's one of the reasons why I advertise my songs so cheap. I suggest that all who follow me, use whatever crowd funding site they feel comfortable using, to do this. No artist should be without a tip jar.
