How To Market Your Songs

How To Market Your Songs

In a nutshell music marketing is all about attracting more fans. Attracting more fans means more people will buy your CDs, come to your shows, and spread the word to their friends.

Below we will take a look at some creative music marketing strategies to help you expand your fan base and improve your popularity.

How To Market Your Songs

1. Social Networking - take advantage of free promotion services such as MySpace, Facebook, YouTube etc... With these services you have access to millions of potential fans and to not crack into these potential fans is frankly a stupid move.

But remember before you put any of your songs out into the public domain make sure you have your music copyrighted.

2. Create A Brand - To be taking serious within the music industry you must not only have great music but also present a professional image. This means getting professional band/artist photos taken, creating a logo for your band (this should be used on your MySpace page, YouTube Channel etc...) and creating a style and image for the band members.

3. Live Shows - Get gigging as much as you can in as many different places as you can. Doing this along with your social networking pursuits will gradually build up your fan base. And record labels love to sign bands that have already created a buzz and following of some sort.
