Find out how to get the best social media promotion

Social media is a crucial tool for communicating value and developing connections with fans and followers. Most indie music artists and brands that are starting out realize this, but what they lack is education of how to make it work. The knowledge of how to use the social media promo services is more important than buying the services alone.

Here are some common mistakes people make that you can avoid when buying and using social media promo services:

-They didn’t know what they’re buying
-They don’t think about long term value (one month or a year in the future)

-They think all promo services are the same
-They had no strategy in place aside from buying likes, views or followers
-They bought something that was low quality
-They bought the right service but at the wrong time
-They think one page is more or less valuable than others
-The biggest mistake you can make is NOT investing in what your audience will see from you strategically. Low numbers indicate low value. No visuals design indicates low value and without a working strategy you can’t build value.

 

All of these mistakes are avoidable when you’ve got right social media promo strategy and knowledge of how to use them. What sets social media agencies like The Social Medium apart is the free consultation to develop customized strategy and to educate brands and artists on how to buy and use the services that are right for them.

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.

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. Social 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.

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

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.

Learn about the strategy that uses online presence like content and social media to create fans and customers.

The biggest mistake indie artists make is focusing only on music and not business. Musici s important but even more important is music business. Not approaching your music like a business and expecting things to happen with the music alone is a mistake. Your brand, your current followers and future followers deserve the investment of a quality experience. Without a business strategy approach your music will stay where it is.

 

 

The same way every business benefits from developing brand strategy and investing in it, your music will benefit as a business. Using your music as a product and your social media as a platform is how to establish how your fans and followers will think of you. Using content to represent your value and who you can be to people is how you reach goals and generate opportunities. If you aren’t taking advantage of your online presence by creating content strategy, you’re greatly missing out on followers that could perceive you as more valuble.

 

Why do content and branding strategy?
To cut through the noise you need to be in direct and constant communication with your followers. In order to create more followers, you need to first establish how and why you matter and why they will care. Content that helps people solve problems or otherwise benefits them is the fastest way to build trust and maximize interests. Giving them reasons to follow beyond the music is how you get people to also care about the music. People are more likely to expand their interests when they see reasons to do so.

 

 

 

 

Here are a few music related and non-music related content strategy posts that showcase value:

“Thank you for helping us reach 1k listeners on Spotify! Hear the single here:”

“S/o (shout out) to new followers! What do want to see me post about next?”

“What did you think of the latest Bryson Tiller album? Let’s see if we agree”

“Find my new music on music blogs across the web thanks to (music blog)”

 

 

Adding value is the primary reason to post content as well as to create more sales, customers and leads. Many times businesses make the mistake of not being transparent enough about how and why they will benefit followers and customers speicifcally. Not being transparent enough about how you will help leads to confusion and your content becomes overlooked.

If you want to cut through you need to be straight forward about your intentions to help people with their benefit as the focus. No matter what you do or sell your business must focus on showing people who you are and how it benefits them. Investing in content strategy is investing in your potential followers so that they have reasons to care.

Top tips to improve your value.

How much effort do you invest in your music beyond just releasing? How much value is created? Create more long term value for music with these tips.

1. Reading

This is the biggest factor to expanding what you think you already know. Without learning what does or doesn’t work,  you’re guessing. When you’re guessing your wasting time, money and effort.

Reading shows you how to be more relevant. Reading articles and overall research plays a key role in the efforts you put towards music and anything you do so keep reading.

 

2. Googling

Almost any question can be answered using Google. If you haven’t found the answer you simply didn’t search hard enough. Google is the single most powerful tool you can implement to add value to your music.

Google provides much needed valuable info to give you a baseline knowledge as well as a platform to learn about any given topic.

When you’re an indie artist,  Google helps you learn things like how to write a bio or how to post on social media.

3. Consider other peoples perception

Always consider what new people experience when they come across your brand or music content. What they see about your indicates more value than details like what the music sounds like.

Most artists make a mistake by focusing on appealing to people closest to them. Releasing too much music too fast with no strategy.

 

 

 

Why invest in what people see about your music?

High end platforms like Spotify paired with promo increases value and awareness. It’s an investment to the artists music releases.

High quality promoted releases represent what you do to brand new audiences to increase awareness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Write down the answers to, “Who Am I?” and “What do can I do for others?”

Overlooking this crucial answer of who you are and what you do for others will lead to overlooking how you will add value. Many people make music. It’s the people who cut through the noise that are recognized. They organize the ways they help people to create services, songwriting, freelance, publishing, streaming royalties etc.

Figure out the specific actions you will take to SHOW people what you do for them. Why does it matter? What sets it apart? What you giving them in exchange for their interests? Chances are it isn’t the music alone. It’s content, opinions, entertainment, tips, shock value and more.

 

 

5. Seek advice from an expert and trust your gut

Go to the people you can reach out to. Be willing to help and ask the questions you need answers for. This is important because choosing to not seek help results in lesser understanding.

Choose to see yourself as the driving factor to solutions and goals. Use the guidance of people you trust and follow what you feel is correct. Many times seeking out more info is simply the most correct thing you can do.

Focus on quality.

If you think that your music alone will create long term success, you’re wrong. Successful indie and major artists create fans and opportunities by focusing on quality over quantity.

This means quality of music releases, content, branding, videos, cover art and everything else that represents your music like the stats, # of plays, views and monthly listeners.

The main difference between artists who become succesful and artists that don’t is this understanding of value and investment required beyond just music releases.

The fact is nearly every serious artist that releases music also believes the music alone is good enough to create opportunity.

 

Why releasing more music will NOT help.

Fans need time to learn why you matter and constant connection to see reasons why they should care.To create a fuller experience you need to give fans more than just music . Things like social media branding, high quality visual logos and flyers, cover art, relevant hashtags, release and promotion strategy are what’s needed for your fan base to grow.

 

 

 

Why does every artist need promotion and strategy for their music?

Everything people see or hear about you determines their perception. Releasing 10 songs that each get 100 plays is totally different than 1 song gaining 10k plays. In addition promo strategy can include social media posts and content strategy.

To brand new followers, what they see about you tells them what they will think of you. Regardless of music your content stats speak for themselves.

In order to  get more people to care about your music they need to be given other reasons to perceive what you do as valuable.

 

 

 

Becoming succesful

The artists and brands that see success are the same ones who are established to create opportunities that will result in success.

Going viral, getting signed or even smaller opportunities, require more than just high quality music. It requires planning and the investment of time and value in yourself in the people who will help you share and distribute your music and content. Establish goals and allow them to become the common focus of your effort. Reaching 1k followers is often the hardest challenge. From there it becomes about maximizing interests, awareness and executing strategy to create more.

 

 

Stop aimlessly releasing music.

Constantly releasing music monthly or weekly without strategy is guessing. You won’t become heard or level up  no matter how much music you release,  If you haven’t created a plan to be heard. Professional music marketing methods that are cost effective are what every artist needs to become competitive and gain visibility.

 

 

Getting more plays means retaining and maximizing interests.

Changing styles and artwork creates inconsistency that people will see as unprofessional and ill-prepared. Invest all of your time and effort into one single move at a time to maximize exposure and value. Creating a consistent strategy for posting and releasing will maximize people who are interested. Doing this leads to more shares and more additional followers. Rather than relying on your reach, you are networking and using the collective reach of everyone willing to help you spread awareness. This is how artists go viral or hit 1 million plays.

In summary artists should worry less about making more music and focus more on quality music that create long term value and more opportunity. Doing this 1 release at a time increases value per effort and eventually leads to better perception from fans and followers.

How to promote music on social media 

Are people finding your tweets? Are they noticing what you post? How do you get them to check out your music without constantly asking them to? The answers can be found in expanding your music brands value and communication.

Good posting vs. Bad posting

Audience perceptions is a major factor for gaining new followers. People who will care about what you post have to see it’s value.  Pages that constantly ask for something are not valuable and pages with low numbers of followers, likes and retweets are seen as unpopular. The best way to promote is by adding value and increasing audience perception with social media promo and content that communicates value.

Here is an example of a bad tweet:
“Check out my music at soundcloud.com/artist”
– This type of tweet is exhausted by literally thousands of indie artists daily. It’s a bad tweet because it does nothing to seperate you as standout from the rest of everyone sharing similar tweets. It also has a weak call to action that many people will not respond to.

Here is the same tweet re-stated in a value adding way.

“Thank you for helping us reach 1k plays on our new release! Listen now at soundcloud.com/artist #artist #soundcloud #music”
– This tweet focuses on the milestone of reaching 1k plays. It gives purpose to the tweet and reason for someone to care about the info being shared.

Create and build your value 

So what’s the best way to promote music on social media? The key is actively communicating features and benefits of what you do and at the same time what you want to followers to do. You must do this in a way that they can see as valuable.

Stand apart from the crowd- Social media like Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube is flooded with indie artist who expect followers will come automatically. But successful major brands build value BEFORE trying to make fans.

One of the biggest factors is the amount of followers you have and how many tweets you get. No matter how great your music is, people expect that quality artists will be more popular and have numbers to show for it. It’s much easier to get people to care when other people already care about what you’re posting and it’s not only yourself talking about it. At the same time another crucial factor is the content that you post. Posts that share achievements or goals that you’ve met will catch MORE attention when you add value to followers.

When valuable posts are paired with promo and strategic communication you are able to create the conditions for getting the response you want. Another excellent way to ensure that you’re growing with new followers and traffic is promoting with hashtags. Hashtags that are relevant to what you post can lead more people to find your profile. In addition doing all of this together over time creates massive popularity for profiles as well. Regardless of how good your music is you need to give people the exact reasons why they will initially have interests in looking. Social media provides a simple yet powerful channel between you and your audience to communicate.
