Upload Your Music – Sounds simple enough, but its still a widely overlooked and neglected idea by some musicians. If you aren’t uploading your music because you don’t know how, then find somebody who does. Its not hard and its not expensive. There are many sites where you can do this for free and use their tools. If you can use a computer you can upload your music. Get on it!
The best way to start promoting your music is to make time to do it. So below you will find a few of my favourite methods to start making time each day for your music promotion companies.
Promo Tip #46 Have star quality, but don’t be a big-head. Let people know you are professional and have the ability to be a long lasting star in this business.
I agree with the IDEA of social media. It is a great way to connect and share news and information. There are so many solutions that answer the question “How to promote my music”? I posted the fact that I have a show coming up in 2 weeks and all my friends can see it and share it on their profile. I can tweet about my show. I can shoot a video and post it on YouTube. I can upload the flyer to Instagram and share it there as well. I can use LinkedIn, FourSquare, my blog, my email newsletter, post pics on my Flickr, upload new songs to SoundCloud, add new photos to my MySpace account (does anyone even use MySpace anymore). The list is endless!
One must also find the Niche. As already mentioned there are thousands of blogs out there on the internet about music, bands etc. They key is writing about a niche topic and then one will be more likely to attract a targeted audience. To try and compete with an already established blog that has high page rankings, a strong viewer base, and lots of existing content is going to just get one frustrated. Focus on one key area of music or playing in a band and one will create own loyal fan base who will crave informative articles.
Licensing your music for use with television, film, advertising, websites, video games and other multimedia will open up your listening audience, provide revenue and introduce a degree of professionalism to your career that attracts the notice of industry reps and A&R. Adding this depth to your web promotion helps to enrich the presentation of your music and retain targeted listeners.
