Most music artists are concerned primarily with one focus, releasing music. But what really matters most is what your audience sees about you. Building social media with a focus on your audience helps publicize and grow your music. This is more effective than releasing music alone.

Why you need social media

Social media is a place to speak directly to your audience. Being transparent about why you’re valuable to them is how you maximize interests. By not making the investment in time and effort on communicating your brands value you are eliminating the majority of reasons why someone new would see you as valuable. The music alone will not make them interested without established value also.┬áSocial media promotion agencies like The Social Medium offer on on one consultation to help you develop your campaign to create long term value to boost every release. In order to get more listeners and create more fans you need to first invest in what they will see and experience.

 

 

If you aren’t using social media you won’t stand out in the crowd.

Social media is a critical asset for the business side of your music. Long term goals can be structured within the strategy of your social media and music releases. Insights about your audience can be gathered and apply to develop more effective strategy. If you don’t know how to optimize your social media presence start by focusing on promoting what people already see about you such as:

Spotify Plays Promo
Soundcloud Plays Promo
Custom Hashtag LIst
Indie blog placements
Twitter Likes and retweet boosts
Instagram LIkes and Views boost

While at the same time provide long term value in the future for new audiences. Don’t overlook what social media and promo strategy can do for the value of music releases. This is the key mistake to avoid.
