Stop asking people to follow or like. Start showing them why they should with these top reasons:

  1. Make the focus of what you do to benefit others- Wanting followers isn’t the same as becoming something follow worthy. Outline the basics of who you are and what you do then show others how it applies to them. Focusing on how what you do helps others and defining ways they can find value creates the platform to launch your own music.
  1. Stop assuming – start communicating, new and current audiences are saturated with constant content and ads. So much so that they don’t have time to connect and understand everything they see. In order to stand out you need to appeal in as many ways possible that others can’t or won’t. Repetition is key to understanding what your audience understands.
  2. Make your content, stats and other visuals as appealing as possible –  for newer audiences making a decision is based on what they see. Encourage better perception with high quality art, visuals and boost followers, likes and views that new audiences see first will increase more engagement and interest.
  3. Think bigger than just your current status – with consistent effort and promo strategic content and online presence is the reason new artists, brands and products get discovered.
  4. Don’t cap your growth appealing to the same old local audiences – expand reasons why new people can care always ask whats the point for the audience?
  5. Consider multiple avenues to arrive at the same desired result – What are you passionate about that helps others? Help them with services, start a business to diversify the ways you can support your main push.
  6. Take your time – too many artists, brands and products exist without knowing their purpose.  Invest the time and effort in your audience by mastering each step before continuing. This creates better long term value adds.
  7. Think bigger- Often times independent artists and brands make decisions from limited knowledge, resources, budget etc. they limit their own growth by committing to lower quality graphics, less consistent promotion and ultimately lower end strategy. In the eyes of the audience you should have major appeal representing who you are and what you do.

Ultimately the top reasons someone will follow or support has to do with their own benefit and interests. As a brand, artists or business it’s on you to take the time and effort to develop who you are and why others will benefit from supporting it.  If you’re looking for the best promo services direct message The Social Medium.  Get free consult, strategy development and to order discount packaged services for Spotify, Youtube, Spinrilla, Instagram, social media and more.

Artists often copy other artists. By doing this they also copy mistakes. Read this article to learn the top mistake artists make and how you can avoid them.

1.The Shotgun Approach

No Strategy Nearly 90% of music artist will operate from the wrong approach by releasing music daily, weekly, monthly etc with no strategy or plan to make the music valuable. Thinking your music alone is good enough to make you succesful is a mistake. Very few artists are fortunate enough with music alone to become “viral”

A much better approach is focusing all of your efforts into one single release at a time, developing solid strategy and continually gathering insight to apply over the long term. Releasing music without strategy decreases value for people.

 

2. Not posting enough

If you want to cut through with your brand posting once daily isn’t enough. Social media is a way to connect with followers. Sharing your updates, goals, interests, story, opinions, humor and inspiration iis the way to connect further with people. When and what you post plays a massive role in the connection you build with followers. This is how you collect emails, generate album sales and business opportunities. Your posts and the connection you can build expands further than just what the music can do alone.

Avoid the mistake of not posting enough with these tips:

-Don’t link automate your post to share all at once. This makes your profile looked rushed and inactive or not specific enought on social media platforms.

-Create content strategy by being creative with what you post.

-Take what you post seriously. Music business is competitive and high quality posts that are punctuated correctly make your brand look like it has authority.

3. No branding for the music

-You must reate a clear and consistent brand message. Who are you and why do other people care? Your brand tells followers  who you are and what you can do for them. By establishing your brand you legitimize what you do to people becuase it’s perceived as more valuable. Avoid making the rookie mistake by investing in your brand  with music promotion and strategy with your content.

-Always remember that visuals like short videos clips, gifs and other content have a 50% better click thru rate than text or images only.

4. Be more transparent

This is one of the biggest mistakes most indie artists make. They hide behind music posts so much that followers can’t discover the REAL YOU. Without a brand message and value adding by informing or helping others the music alone won’t be enough to generate interest. People see before they click. Showing them value is the key to getting fans and opportunities.

If you want to become a well-known brand you have to be transparent with the benefit you bring to the table for your followers. A few ways to communicate this value are

-Social media branding that matches across all platforms and posts
-Blog interviews and placements
-Shouting out and giving back to fans publicly
-Behind the scenes
-Updates and goals
-Selfies
