Are you an indie music artist struggling to take off? Learn how to avoid common mistakes that prevent indie artists from reaching full potential. Here are some common mistakes that indie artists make that will prevent your music career from getting further:
Approaching music as a hobby or as business
Success is built not found. If you’re waiting for someone to discover your music because it’s good, you’re wasting time. The fact is there’s endless amount of good music and artists that never become succesful. This is because artists that get opportunities are the same ones putting in the work to create value from their releases.
The #1 top mistake indie music artists make is not investing time, money and effort in what they have that represents the music. The music alone isn’t valuable because it’s only music.
Being established on social media and Spotify is how you further opportunities and followers experience. It seperates you from local level people who do music as a hobby. For successful music releases you need business strategy and social media that acts as a brand with original content that communicates why you matter.
Releasing too much music
Yes, you read correctly. Releasing too much music too quickly devalues music releases. What major artists do is release one record at a time while building as much as possible for as long as it takes. Doing this creates momentum and cosistent awareness of time and not all at once the way indie artists try to create.
