Are you a struggling musician that’s looking to somehow increase their exposure online? Then you definitely need to learn how to promote your music online. If you’ve been making music for a while and have built up a small local or regional following, great – your next stop should be the internet.
If you’re a brand new artist who doesn’t have any following, great – your next stop should also be the internet.
That’s because the internet has made the entire world your local music scene. You can get people from all over the world to hear your music if you promote if correctly.
There are many different ways you can learn how to promote your music online. The first way is obvious – social media. Most musicians, singers and rappers are on social media already. But to really be successful you have to approach it like a business.
You want to build up your name (i.e. your brand) on the internet and get people knowing about you. But it’s important that you don’t come across as spammy.
For example, you don’t want to just log onto to twitter and @-mention everyone you see with a message saying “LISTEN TO MY NEW TRACK” – that’s horrible and will actually make people hate you, not like you.
You’re trying to GET fans, not turn them off. Seriously don’t do that when you’re promoting your music.
So how are you supposed to go about this then? Well that’s easy, you simply have to learn the best way to promote your music. There are many books and things like that available where you can learn. But I suggest you start by watching YouTube videos and doing some Google searches. That way you can get a grasp about what online music marketing is all about. And before you know it, you’ll be well known for your awesome music!
