Facebook was created as a social networking site, that’s true, but its business model has changed. These days, people use Facebook to hawk their goods and sell their wares. For music artists and bands, they have also started to use Facebook as a tool to sell music online. Isn’t that great? You make friends and even manage selling your songs and increase sales of your newly released track or album. Having a Facebook account also guarantees you a fan base – in short: loyalty – and consumers of your music. It’s a win-win!
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.
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.
Be legit – create a band page. You should create one right away – URL and band name – and have your own musical digital footprint. Select the category ‘Arts, Entertainment and Sports’ and you’re all set.
Google – You can obviously pay for traffic on Google, but it’s really hard to make a profit so I’m going to suggest you use a process called “Search engine optimization” or SEO.
Who has not heard of YouTube or Google video? These amazing amalgams of everything under the sun stand as monolithic compendiums. There must be more than 100 million videos on these sites containing an inexhaustible variety of material covering every topic under the sun. This makes them the world’s largest central repository for video. Like a dictionary containing every word it has the drawback it cannot be read even if using an index to find something. If you are not the most popular or the featured few darlings your message never sees the light of day, except by you. Google’s top 100 videos are populated with soft porn girlies and that is hard to compete with.
YouTube is yet another tool in music promotion; you need to understand how to use it effectively so as to maximise your exposure level as well as attract millions of viewers. Most renowned music artist used this route to reach where they are, so if you want to make it too, try it out.
