As artists and producers, we hold a lot of information of programmers in the UK and internationally - so we have come up with a few ways to make sure we don't stop any plates from spinning.
We've created 2 versions of our Relationship Tracker to share as resources for artists and producers - read more below about each and how we imagine you might use them.
For artists - or producers who want one tracker per artist
Created in Excel - also compatible in Numbers
This version of the resource is built to track one artist's relationships across 4 categories (tabs across the workbook):
There is also a WLTM tab (Would Like To Meet) where you'd add in programmers you'd like to make connections with in the future. We imagine that once you make contact, you'd move them into the relevant category tab above.
In column F, there is a dropdown to indicate what kind of relationship you have with the programmer so far, which we imagine you'd update as the relationship evolves:
Columns I-L are focused on action - what is your artwork priority when contacting them, date you contacted them, log their reply and further action.
For producers - track up to 7 artist's relationships
Created in Excel - full functionality only works within Excel
As this one is a bit more complex, watch this video for a guide on how to use it.
Hope they're helpful!
