Music promotion companies are great for bands who have a little bit of a marketing budget. You can get more fans and more success without having to spend hours and hours every day in front of the computer spamming the social networks and record companies.
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 sites.
A lot of bands find new fans by covering their favorite holiday songs. I recently had the chance to hear K.Hudson do a cover of the popular Christmas song, Mr.Grinch, from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. It’s totally different from the screen version but it was definitely a new twist on an old song. Covering these older songs can help you find new fans when they look for the songs online.
Ok, now you know why you can not see an option to turn off Genius when you click on the Store menu in iTunes. To turn the iTunes Genius off, you must turn the iTunes Match off firstly. This won’t the artists and songs you already uploaded to your iTunes Match account, but you won’t be able to access it again until you turn the iTunes Match back on. Re-connecting to iTunes Match need some time and your iTunes library will receive some new information.
Trying to start a music career is like pushing a car. It takes a lot of power to get it rolling, especially if you are trying to roll it up hill. Once you get it started moving, it gets a lot easier and you don’t have to push it nearly as hard and if you hit a flat spot or a downhill grade, you might even be able to hop in and enjoy the ride. But if you ever let that momentum stop, then you have to start all over again.
Promo Tip #1 A music artist must start somewhere, that’s usually locally, but it’s better to not just dive in without a plan. But begin you must. Create a plan with some ideas and set goals as to what you need to accomplish weekly, monthly, and yearly. Start small and make it progressive. Reach bench marks and keep at it.
The subject of this post is whether or not it works for creating a QUALITY following. The benefit is in the Quality of the Fans not the Quantity of fans. It is better to have 500 die hard fans that buy your stuff than 5,000 + fans that don’t even visit your site.
Be specific and share it with people who care about your music and maybe even the concept you have in the video. You used a cellphone to shoot your video? A techie website can feature you.
