Online Music Promotions for every musician is the key to success. To sell music online, one must promote his band, promote his music or just showcase band to the world one needs to be able to know how to promote your music with success.
Not only will you be surprised by the amount of people who reply to your emails, but also by the amount of interest in hearing what you have to show. Even if only a few sentences they will critique your soundcloud promotions. The thrill from getting responses alone is worth the effort of contacting them. The added bonus is really their comments which could greatly improve your music. If you are extremely lucky the independent artists or music industry person may share your music and get some buzz going for your music service. The possibilities are endless and the probabilities are low. High volume efforts create more chances for success.
But the point of this post is not to have you testing like a freak for the next year! I want to give you a short cut or you could say “cheat sheet” to the things that have most impact for any creative person.
When people will start recognizing you slowly they would definitely love to have some words with you, this is the time when you can actually make your fan following strong. Be nice to them as they are the only one who loves you and spend their money to attend your live shows, cheers for you, and purchase your music CDS. Respect them and in return gain respect from them.
Another indie getfollowers tool that is overlooked all to often is a subscriber list. When fans go to your web page you need to have a subscriber list to gather names and emails. Offer a free download of one of your songs in exchange for a name and email address. When you collect the names and emails of your fans it makes it so much easier and effective to announce any upcoming events, albums, or promotions that you will be running.
Other myspace artists have about me blurbs that go on forever. Keep about me blurbs short (no more than 1000 words), if people want to know more about you, they will ask.
I hope you go something from this article. I had to get this off my chest because it’s something that I think people should be thinking about rather than blinding spending hours and hours everyday friending people on myspace.
