Hello, my name is Deron Wade. I am the co-founder of Tuneport. Tuneport is a web app that gives independent musicians the tools and resources to be successful music entrepreneurs. Tuneport evolved from my success of hustling in Los Angeles selling my own CD’s and mixes on the streets. It is there that I learned the business of the music industry and the hustle it takes to make it a lifestyle. I developed a fan base, created customer email lists, sold outside the Grammy’s, and sold over 20,000 CD’s with a 70% conversion rate. I wanted to share and give the skills that I had developed to artists, so I took my model from the streets to the internet.
