You have signed up with a reliable music distribution agency, have been selling songs online, and have gotten a supportive fan base. Want to go on tour? Perform live gigs in clubs, bars, and if possible, concert arenas? If it’s a yes to all, start booking for your tour.
I know we’re not talking about restaurants but compare that same scenario to promoting your music. If you’re any good the word spreads about you and doors open much faster for you. Doing shows and giving away your product at times can really help you move up the online music promotion ladder. Another thing I do to promote my music is to come up with other products that get my name out there. I’ve produced short films and written books even though my main objective is selling my music. Doing other things just help you stand out as an artist and enhance your customer’s experience with your brand. That’s why you now see many rappers trying to get into films. What better way to sell more music than to get someone to stare at you on a screen for nearly two hours.
There are many free blog platforms online-WordPress,Tumblr,Blogger-it’s up to you to choose the best style suited to your needs.It’s best to use an artist or band name so it’s easier to find you online.Should you decide to use a much more creative blog name, promote it well.
Blogging comes from the word blog which is short form of the words web log.When you have a blog, you are expected to update it from time to time with your thoughts, opinions,and any other content you feel that is relevant and worth sharing.Blogging may come in the form of words, photos, videos, music, et cetera.
What the sign of a good performance? SWEAT! This may sound odd, but if you’re going all out to do your best on stage, the proof will be in the sweat. The proof will be on your shirt, your forehead and possibly even your microphone hand. Give people what they pay for by entertaining by all means, use your imagination. Think of it like this, if you went to see someone perform what would you want to see?
Never let it be said that having your music video on YouTube or Google should not be done. Au contrairy, that is the first thing you would do followed by posting that video to your MySpace account. What did you say? You don’t have a MySpace account? Then go get an account now! The accounts are free, easy and worth the effort. Move! Get back here when you are done baking that cake.
E.B.:Speaking for myself, they advancement in technology has just confused things. It seems to me that whatever option one takes these days, is a struggle. The music business is a mess. They should have jumped on the internet to promote music a long time ago but they didn’t and now they’re paying for it or, to be honest, the artists are paying for it.
