NY Rock Music Examiner: With the use of the internet and social networks, and You Tube and the demise of many major labels , has online music promotion been easier or harder to get noticed?
The irony about social media and the internet is that it’s supposed to save you time, but in the end it takes up more time than ever to just get the word out about what you’re doing. So I’ve noticed this transformation of the present day artist. Some artists are so tech savvy and social media experts that they forgot to focus on being an actual ARTIST! If you’re an artist, business owner, musician, etc… take a look at your week. If you’ve spent more time on Facebook, twitter, YouTube, etc… than on your actual craft then you’re falling into a trap!
Social media websites are so effective when it comes to promoting music. Especially Facebook, as there is an incredible members logging in every single day. You have the ability to reach a massive audience with sites like Facebook and Twitter. Use these sites as effective tools for networking. The key is to stay active on the sites and make sure that you are constantly updating them. Keep your updates to a reasonable amount within a 24 hour time period though.
Invest in your music, you don’t have to be a millionaire to make it in the music industry. Time is the biggest investment as your commitment to your work will determine how far you go, remember time is money.
Who are the perennial users of Instagrams’s capability to sell music online / albums and gain fans? Indie bands such as: The National, Shiny Toy Guns; dance impresario Moby; rockers Deftones, and media darling Zooey Deschanel. They post a myriad of photos and fans are forever hooked.
Remember when you make a plan, still plan again and stick to the plan and don’t get sidetracked. Your music is what you have, but it’s not all you’ve got so use everything you have in you to promote your music.
