Introduce yourself for those that don’t know you. Who are you and what is your role in Conquer Entertainment?
I am Amanda Ridinger, the CEO of Conquer Entertainment.
How did Conquer Entertainment come about?
With over 10 years of experience within the music industry, I’ve collected a myriad of experiences which have provided an insight into the industry. I’ve worked with a variety of artists, managed street teams, assisted in street team work, took part in graphic design assignments geared towards artist promotion and more. Coupled with the experience as an active distributor I saw an opportunity in the synergy of the Market America system that could serve well in the music industry. Using social tools for one to one marketing to fill the gaps that the industry has failed to cover and give artists a new handle on their career.
Tell us a little about your background. What are some of your music related skills?
I have an Associates in Artist Managament and a Bachelor’s in Music Business. I’ve managed about 8 different artists throughout the years. Worked on a variety of promotional efforts from street teams to graphic design and social media management.
Can you share one memorable experience that has molded your role as the CEO?
I wouldn’t say there is one particular experience. All the challenges we have faced and continue to face have molded my role and vision for the company. I often get excited over ideas during brainstorming sessions but the difference between the idea and the result is the execution. Each challenge has been rewarding from the technological ones to the changes in staff. I’ve learned that the key to managing a successful company is in persistence and sweat equity.
If you could choose one song that speaks to you, what would that be and why?
A while ago I put together a mixtape to fire me up and one of the songs I chose was QBaby “Persona of a Rockstar”, because it gets me going.
We all know that the Conquer platform is filled with talented artists. We want to know, do you have any talents of your own? Do share!
I can play the bass and the djembe. I’m always looking to learn something new especially when it comes to all things music. I’m just getting warmed up!
