In today's world, being good always isnât enough. Especially in the music industry. Your beats might be as technical as Tiestoâs or your riffs might compete with Jimi Hendrix but if you canât showcase your skills, it doesnât matter. Data religion is already here - if you donât share your experience, it loses meaning. Same goes for music. This guide will give you some tips on how to keep up with the current trends of showcasing your music in 2020.
Active marketing = success
A big part of success is marketing and the more active you are with promoting yourself, the more results youâll get. There are many social media channels but few are actually important. I will give you a step-by-step guide on how you should use some of the most essential channels trending right now.
1. Share your music on Soundcloud
The most popular music sharing platform is still Soundcloud. Itâs possible to use it for free and for starters, itâs recommended to try out the free version first. Itâs a great website for sharing data about your skills and style by uploading your tracks over there.
2. Share Soundcloud content on Instagram & Facebook
Getting traction only by using Soundcloud is not smart because people in Soundcloud are mostly musicians themselves. But you want to get your music out to everyone, right? This is where Instagram and Facebook come into play. Share your Soundcloud tracks on Instagram and Facebookto attract all kinds of people to listen to your music.
3. Use Fiverr services to gain organic traction on your social media channels
Having high traction creates credibility. This is why using Fiverr services can help you out. NB! Do not buy likes or views! Buy services like âI will promote your music to 2,500 college radio stationsâ or âI will play your song on radio new york live, promote your musicâ to get some legit visitors who could turn out to be your next fans.
4. Link your socials to musicians.agency profile
