3 Ways Rappers Can Build Their Fanbase Fast | Music Marketing Strategies & Tips

What’s up, my name is hip play of hit, play, beats calm and my goal is to help provide rappers with the knowledge they’re going to need in order to turn their dreams into their careers. So if you’re, a serious rapper make sure you go ahead and you hit that subscribe button down below and you click the notification bell to get notified every time.

I release a new article also, if you like any of the beats here in the background this article I’ll have the direct links listed in the description below alright, so the first way that you can start building your fanbase is by actually collaborating with other artists, either Around you or that you can meet through social media, so collaboration is great because it allows you to get in front of an audience that you wouldn’t have the opportunity to get in front of otherwise.

So as an example, if you have a thousand fans – and somebody else has a thousand fans – that’s potentially 2,000 people that can see your new song – you just did with that artist. So now, potentially, you can gain an extra thousand followers just because you were in front of somebody else’s audience and that’s across all other social medias as well. So, if they’re, promoting through Twitter or they’re, promoting through Instagram or they’re, promoting through SoundCloud or whatever it is you’ll, actually be able to grow on all those different platforms as a whole and that’s just from doing a collaboration with one artist.

If you find multiple other artists, so if you find say ten artists, you can collaborate with that’s not potentially ten other opportunities that you have to be seen in front of other audiences. Another great thing about collaboration is the fact that most rappers aren’t going to take down the song that you did with them. So if they blow up and they get say they get exposed to 10,000 more people or they grow a fanbase to like ten thousand.

A hundred thousand people have percentage of them are going to see your name as well, and the percentage of they’re going to go search you out as well, and if you grow your fanbase big enough, you’ll actually be able to charge for collapse and start making some Money from this as well, alright, so the second way you can start building a fanbase is actually by creating viral articles. So basically, the type of articles that I’m talking about are the ones that people want to share, because it’s either interesting or it relates to a certain audience on social media.

So a great example of this would be how futuristic was able to dress like a nerd and start rapping for people, and all they did was record that from across the street. And so basically, because that was such an unexpected thing and it was able to be shared across social media, but through either Twitter or through Instagram or through Facebook. It was able to go viral and he gained so much exposure from that.

Now he’s not going to gain his mate, so if he gets a million views, it’s not going to give you a million followers, but there’s going to be a percentage of people that are going to be like. I want to see what he’s going to do in the future and those are the people that are going to be able to become part of your fan base. So you can also use those to your advantage to direct people to your original music as well.

So, basically, by leaving a link to Spotify or by leaving a link to your original music somewhere else, you can direct people to your original content. You can gain fans from that as well. Just as a side note, I don’t want anybody thinking that okay, I can just go and do the same thing and get the same result. That’s not really true, and that’s not really the case. People are going to know that you’re trying to rip off and do the same thing, so you just need to be creative and figure out.

Something else that you can do on your own. So the third way that we’re going to talk about how you can build your fanbase is through targeted marketing on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. So yes, this does require that you have somewhat of a budget, and you also do need to know what you’re doing somewhat, but once you understand some of the things about how these ad platforms work and how to actually promote your music on these platforms.

You’ll actually be surprised about how effective these can actually be. So basically, if we take the previous way so using a viral article to basically gain exposure, if you take – and you promote that through YouTube or Facebook to people who have a similar interest in that style of music, you’ll actually be able to gain fans from that. So as an example of how you can actually go about doing, this is basically going through and on facebook on the ads manager.

You can pick the fan pages of people like future young thug, yo gotti, whoever that’s in your kind of in your genre. In your lane, you want to pick about seven to fourteen of those people, and then you can actually market to their fans. They’ve already built these fan bases up. So basically, all you have to do is pay to get in front of them, and a percentage of them are going to like your music, because you’re in that same style in that same plane.

So if you take that viral article idea from that second way that we just talked about, you can actually promote that article to people who are going to have an interest in it already. This is great because a lot of those artists already have millions of followers. Already built up for you, all you’re doing is tapping into their following and finding other people that have a similar interest in that style of music and, like I said before, this will work on all the social medias that allow you to create ads and promote people On their sites all right, so I hope this article was helpful and if it was make sure you definitely like the article down below and if you have any questions comments or concerns go ahead and leave that in the comment section below and if you mean beats, Don’t forget to stop by hit play, beats com and until next time, I’ll see you guys later peace.

Alex Becker Helped Me To Promote My Music | Marketing Tips 2020

So if you’re, a serious rapper make sure you go ahead, you hit that subscribe button down below and you click the notification bell to get notified every time.

I release a new article. Also, if you like, aiming the beats you hear in the background. I’ll have direct links to each of those beats in the description below so over the years. I’ve learned and grown a lot, and one of the first things that I learned when I first started. Making music was the importance of marketing and promoting your music and building an audience. Of course, I didn’t always know how to do that and what to do and what would actually get results.

So I started looking for stuff online and one of the first people that I found was alex becker. So for those of you that don’t know who alex becker is he’s actually a really successful CEO of several software companies and he has a YouTube blog. That he’s dedicated to basically helping other people learn to sell stuff online, and, what’s really great about him, is the fact that he has a really big YouTube blog where he’ll go live every now and again and in those live streams you can actually ask him questions And he’ll give you answers that will help you along and get you some results.

So I remember being in one of his live streams, and he was talking about the importance of email, marketing and growing YouTube blog and the ways that you could do both those live streams helped me out so much and it really helped me get to where I Am today, and that’s just some of the stuff that he shared now, of course, a lot of the stuff that he shared didn’t really directly relate to music. So I had to figure out and take his ideas and flip them to where I can use them to promote my music, but using the his ideas and what he gave other people.

I was able to successfully promote my music and build an audience. There was actually one specific live stream where he basically gave away the blueprint of how he built his YouTube blog up to 300,000 subscribers and the type of articles and the type of content that he had to do in order to basically get to that point. So the first point that I want to kind of drive home is the fact that you don’t have to learn from somebody who’s.

Just specifically telling you how to your music, you can learn how to promote or market or do anything from anybody, who’s, teaching you how to run advertisements or how to promote and do anything online. And the second point that I want to drive home is the fact that I learned how to do this for free. I didn’t have to buy a course. I didn’t have to invest a lot of time and energy into you, know, courses or anything else like that to learn how to effectively promote my music.

I just kind of readed him figured it out on my own and put it into action. So three of the things that I was able to learn and absorb just from reading him and reading his blog was how to do email, marketing, how to promote and create ads for YouTube and then how to create content. That gets people engaged and actually wants to come back to see what you’re going to do next time. So I’m just going to briefly breakdown each of those things, real, quick and just kind of give you an example of how I’ve used it to grow.

My audience and grow my business, so the first one is email marketing, and this is huge for an artist, because this is literally your fans at your fingertips at this point because they’ve, given you their email address, so that you can contact them whenever you release a New song or new merch, or anything like that, imagine being able to send a message to a thousand or 2,000 people and say hey. My new mixtape is dropping in 30 minutes an hour whatever or it’s out right now or you have a new music article that you just released, and you want to get some some views and some eyes on it immediately.

You can literally send this an email to 2,000 people, and a percentage of them are going to go check it out because they’re a fan of you, that’s basically traffic on command that you don’t have to pay for so the next one I want to talk about Is his content marketing strategy? So basically he talks about this in a lot of his articles, but it’s basically how he was able to game the YouTube algorithm or basically understands like what content or what articles to make so that he can basically have a article.

Go viral or semi viral all the time and he’s got several articles on breaking down like how to do that, and that’s absolutely huge, because imagine being able to make a article and know that it’s going to get 10,000 20,000 30,000 views within a few days and Having a message in that article, basically saying like hey by the way I got a new mixtape or a new project or a new song coming out in X amount of days or you know, click the link in the description you can check out my original music.

That’s absolutely powerful. That’s a lot of eyes. You can get your music that way and that’s something that I started implementing in every single article that I did because I knew how powerful it was and then the third thing is YouTube ads and those are really powerful. Because if you understand that you can target basically any artists blog with YouTube ads and show your music to somebody that has a similar taste in music, you can gain a ton of fans really fast and really cheap and one of the more advanced things that I Learned from him, when it comes to YouTube ads is like retargeting ads, so basically, YouTube gives you 28 or 30 days to basically retarget anybody, who’s readed, a article of yours.

So, basically, if you’re putting out a song a month, you can retarget anybody who readed your previous song and show them your next song for dirt cheap. For, like a penny of you, this way, if you basically promote to 10,000 people in one in the first month, then the next month you have an audience of people that maybe they didn’t follow you the first time, but you can then reap re reach out and Reshow yourself to them again and you have a higher percent chance of getting them to become a fan so long story.

Short. I’ve learned a lot from him. I’ve implemented a lot from him and I’m starting to see real results based on the information that I’ve learned.
