FREE Music Marketing Strategy To Get REAL Fans Using YouTube | How To Build a Music Fanbase

Now this is one of five cheap growth strategies. I listed in my guide that free guide is in the description below I’ll, also put in the top comment, so check that out after the article, if you’re interested and a great thing about this article right here is a lot of you guys have been looking for A system to use marketing wise because everybody needs a system, but you haven’t had one.

This article will show you a system for growing a fan base and if you can’t use this particular one, you at least understand what that looks. Like here’s, the things that you got to do to use this strategy, one you have to upload a content mix. This requires two types of content at minimum, but three would be even better. Those two types of content are your original music that could be a music article or just a audio track, upload it to YouTube, and then there’s cover songs.

Now I know a lot of you guys are familiar with using cover music on YouTube. Some people have tried it and haven’t had much success, but a lot of it comes from not completely understanding so listen to this entire article, so you can really get an understanding how best to use cover music and also to actually make sure you maximize this. You have to upload your cover: music, your remixes or your free styles, one of the others in the right way.

So read the article that I did on how to properly do that and I’ll also provide that in the link description below the third type of content. You can do is really just regular vlog type articles where you’re engaging your audience and different ways, or just giving them peers and peeks into your lifestyle. There’s plenty of youtubers out there that you know are just succeeding as just youtubers, no music at all figure out.

What you might be able to do in that type of category to give fans additional ways to connect with you? The second thing you need to do is manage your proportions. Now. What I mean by that is you have those two or three types of content that you’re dropping. You want your original music to be a decent portion of that, and your original articles to be a decent portion of that if you’re doing vlog type articles covers, can be some, but not all of your posts.

There’s some people who use a cover, type strategy or a remix type strategy, but that’s all they’re doing and then there’s some people who rarely ever do covers or any kind of remixes or freestyles. You want to create some form of regular schedule, even if you’re not dropping this music regularly, it doesn’t necessarily matter what your proportion is as long as you stay consistent over the long term, but just for those of you, my ex, if you do at least one Cover song or one freestyle, every four articles you drop, that could be pretty good for you, but on the other end, if you aren’t able to record quality original music, you might want to flip that and drop only one original song.

Every four articles you have to figure out what works best for you, but if you can do this at least weekly, then that should be a nice pace to work with. If you want to slow that down and do four articles every month, just realize you’ll be taking more time to get out more content and you’re working at a slower pace so expect success or certain numbers to come at a slower pace. Now. The third thing you got to do is links in promo.

It’s the equivalent of letting people know where your other music is in this article right here. I could have text pop up that says: follow brain man, Sean on soundcloud or follow brain man, Sean on Spotify or Apple music, if they’re not going to also have that in my description links. I can also have that in my top comment link now, if you don’t know what I mean by top comment, if you look at the comment section of this article, you’ll notice, that my comment is at the top, because I pinned it to the top and now Any links that I want people to see people will always see.

My comment first be sure to do this with relevant links for your articles. Now it’s extremely important that these links lead to places where it’s only your original content, if you haven’t realized it, yet we’ve been walking through pieces of the system. The reason a lot of people fail when it comes to covers is they’re thinking about it directly as creating fans as opposed to realizing that covers are marketing.

So now, when I talked about that marketing funnel remember, we’ve talked about this in articles before read my article on that, if you haven’t, this is how the system would play out. The top of the marketing funnel always has the most people your covers, because they’ll get views and organically are usually going to be the first thing people see, that’s just them becoming aware of you initially, the next step in the consideration phase.

That means they saw whatever cover article that they saw of you and now they’re saying. Let me look at this other cover article, or maybe they run into your original content. That’s what’s happening in the consideration phase, because they’re discovering more of you next is conversion. This is when they’re really saying yeah. Oh, this person’s original content is awesome and if you did the third type of content, that is the more youtuber, maybe blog type content, they’re discovering – maybe some of this in the consideration phase as well, but once they get down to the conversion phase.

They really like your original music and they really like your other articles. That is just you and your personality, not necessarily the covers. So now. At this point, you have people who are discovering you on your YouTube page and then some of your subscribers are probably casual fans and real fans. You don’t know what that number percentage is, but with the links, the people who follow you, because they see your link in your YouTube article or they see it in your description or your top comments and follow you on other platforms, whereas only your original music.

You now know that the people who went there through that route really love you for you. These are some of your true fans, and that is a system and the way these systems work is now once everything is in place. All you have to do is stay consistent with it, and on top of that, give it more and more exposure, because now, after you have let’s say a hundred articles of this combination, if article number 101, all of a sudden goes viral, all the new people that Come in and will go to the top of the funnel and be able to follow that exact same route, and now for those of you who get all discouraged like yo.

My original music doesn’t get anywhere near as many views as the covers. That’s how it’s supposed to be it’s the top of the funnel that’s people discovering you in the first place. Naturally, less people are going to even find out about your original music at first. But if you stay consistent with this system, you’re going to have more casual fans and more real fans and you’ll have more people who aren’t fans at all, but at least have been exposed to you.

Everybody has this there’s an artist out there that you can think of that. You know, has a pretty strong fan base, but you don’t really know their music like that, because you’re, the top of the funnel for them. This system could be a strong foundation for you and if you follow the criteria and follow these instruction and you’re, not finding any kind of progress in the content probably needs to improve whether that means your music isn’t good or whether that means the quality of the Audio and articles is just straight-up messed up, you’ll have to figure that out, but there’s no way you shouldn’t find some progress, even if it’s not as fast as other people.

Now again, this was just one of five cheap growth strategies to build a music fan bits.

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. So I hope you like this article, if you did make sure you go ahead and you hit that like button down below. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, go ahead and drop that down in the comment section down below this article as well and don’t forget to stop by hit play beats com if you need any new beats and until next time guys here are some more Articles

How To Find Out Who You Are As An Artist To Plan Your Future

These are considered at a plant is made to play off what an artist needs to do to accentuate these strengths and diminish their weaknesses. In this episode, I’m going to teach you the techniques, the artists you love, used to decide their next moves.

Hi, I’m Jesse cannon. This is muse formation, and today I’m in Millerton New York at bear tracks, studio and just taking a minute to talk about this. So if you’ve readed this blog before you know, I have more than a bit of disdain for startup bro culture, but with that said, when you’re right, you’re right, there’s always things to be learned from even the biggest douchebags in the world. It’s started playing.

There’s this thing called a SWOT analysis. Now we’re not trying to hit flies with something and analyze it. That was horrible. You do this analysis in order to get a grasp on who you are and what your to-do list should be, as well as figuring out what your next marketing move should be. So SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. This gives a wide span of knowledge about who you are and what you should do and can really guide your each and every move.

I talked to so many artists and oftentimes. They feel like they’re walking in the dark and just seeing what sticks by throwing it against the wall and really are just guessing at what they’re going to do next for their content and going with the first idea that comes to them. Instead of making calculated and informed decisions that can really help make their music resonate better, this analysis will teach you exactly what you should be doing at all times and guide numerous parts of what you do.

Ok, so let’s get into this. So the essence SWOT is 4 strengths for this list. We’re going to list everything you do well. This could be that you have a charismatic frontwoman, great songs, attractive people in the group. Whatever your strengths are, let’s get them down here and feel free to even go down to the minutia. We want to get everything you have going for you on this list. Then we get to the W, which is weaknesses here.

We want to put everything you need to improve. It should be being worked on regularly. This could be that your drummer sucks you’re, a bunch of slobs. You have no money or that your music is generic, since you still haven’t found your voice, yet that’s all fine. Be honest with yourself opportunities is the openness. This could be that your dad owns that empty. Where that you can film cool articles in and put sets in, you know someone in licensing and you may get opportunities there.

If you make more licensable music or your guitarist is so good that you can get on a bunch of guitar YouTube blogs to promote your music, the T stands for threats, which are things you need to take care of before something bad happens. This could be everything from unpaid tickets that may get your van towed away, that your drummer’s going to have a kid and not be able to play shows for a while. Yes, I just called a kid a threat.

I had a really bad train ride up here with a crying kid behind me, so I’m taking a little revenge or that you haven’t released music in 9 months and you’re losing monthly listeners. So let’s get this filled out for yourself to give you some inspiration. Here’s examples of three different artists and how I would fill out their SWOT analysis if I was on their team okay, so I have to do these four groups.

I know really well because, in order to do these analysis, you have to know what the intricacies of each group, so, of course I chose my favorite group, the 1975 first, because who woulda thunk it so there’s strikes charismatic frontman he’s amazing. They use a lot of their articles to play up how much personality has and have him do all sorts of different things, because he’s capable of doing a ton and he’s an incredible performer.

They have I’d ever our sounds, so they get introduced to lots of different people on playlists because they get to be on so many different types of playlists regularly. Since, when you make songs in different genres, you can get on those and that’s helped to bolster their fanbase immensely. They have a diverse fanbase in that it appeals to everybody whether it’s normal looking people on to weird queer, kids, art, kids, even a girl on a job in the to time article, and they really bring this out and show their fans a lot because they want People to know that they’re included here, the singer is also probably the most intelligent pop star in the mainstream when talking about politics in society, so they do tons and tons of interviews which helps spread their message and they know this and take advantage of it.

Their weaknesses are also the same that many people are repulsed to by this about him and they think that he’s, you know, woke trolling and things like that for publicity and they also just turned off. I can remember going home on Christmas after they had played Sarah at live, and my father’s friends were repulsed by him. They have a diverse, and that also turns a lot of fans off. I end up deleting from my playlist of the records the gospel songs of the jazz songs, because I don’t like when they do that and Watts people don’t like that about them.

Their opportunities are that they have or about to have potentially to album of the year. Albums and critic circles and that can exponentially propel you when you’ve had two records. That really are this solid. Their threats are, the singer is a former heroin addict and that can go sideways at a time and they have insanely high expectations for the next record ends. Very hard when you’ve made a record that everybody called the album of the year to follow it up.

Next, we have my fav hundred decks. Their strengths are unique and shocking sound. When you listen that that record, I often tell people if they listen to it. You can’t just listen to one song. You have to listen to seven of them at least to understand how insane this record is because it’s just so all over the place. They have a unique look and personality that don’t look like any other group out right now, which always makes for people wanting to do photoshoots with you.

Other musicians, love them and they’re highly influential in the mainstream right now, every pop stars talking about how that’s the record, that’s influencing them. The weaknesses are many for people find them too silly, since they’re pretty silly and their diversity sound yet again turns fans off their sound. It goes all over the map. There are opportunities or they’re poised to be a huge act with the next record is seemingly it will be handed to them as long as they make a good record lots of keys to lots of opportunities in Dylan Brady that one of the producers in the group Produces many huge pop acts like Charli XCX, so they have a very good opportunity to widen their appeal with that their threats are they only have a dozen songs, so it’s hard for people to get addicted to a band.

That only has one real release and they also have insanely high expectations for their next record. Next, I’m going to talk about one of my new favorite artists poppy puppy’s strengths are: she has unique innovative production on her songs, her songs, truly just jaw drop on this latest record. I disagreed that you can’t believe how they got. Some of these sounds and how interesting the song structures are.

She’s a unique looking personality she’s been making some of the most interesting articles that people were talking about long before she found her voice. They would just talk about how crazy her articles are in the look of them and you know, she’s a very attractive person, and that helps no matter who you are weaknesses, metal fans, hate diversity and sound. They don’t like when you bring other genres in they’re, a closed-minded Bunch, so it makes a lot of people turned off by her.

She also used to make pop music, so stupid. Metal fans are skeptical of her opportunities. Are, though, that musicians appreciate her very much. I see a lot of people talking about how it influenced they are by this record and she has a creative level worthy of mass attention and what I mean by that is like we’re, seeing so many with creative directors now and we’re going to talk a lot More about that in a few articles from now – and she really really has a creative level of like whatever’s happening our team to make the stuff that she makes it’s like Madonna at her peak level.

Good content, like I am shocked by every article that she comes out with her threats, are, could be considered novelty if songs go in the wrong direction. You know this music borders on not being serious, and that is such a hard line to walk and the way she comments on music. Her personality is hard to age, and I don’t want to do that in a females can’t grow up, because that’s repulsive to me. What I mean by that is when you’re commenting on youth culture, eventually, you get too old like blink 182 and that’s a lot of what she’s doing is she’s talking about the youth and making a mockery of you know like a culture and stuff like that, so That you filled this out, how do you use it for your to-do list? I like to focus on the opportunities and threats.

First, since opportunities should guide what you’re working towards and since threats can potentially take down what you do, you have to make sure you act on them fast. It also helps to consider for your to-do list how planning up to your strengths can increase your chances to get these opportunities. You should also consider your weaknesses and take time to consider allocating time to fix them. Oftentimes, just stare at this list can get you to a more considered place on your to-do list, where you can be more effective in your progress, will dramatically improve just from this practice.

As the same goes work smarter, not harder. Secondly, this list should guide your image and the marketing decisions you make, whether it’s articles photo shoots or art, think about your strengths and weaknesses and how you play them up and make them more effective. Play up your strengths of doing things that conceal your weaknesses is crucial and makes everything you do better and more effective. Take the time to make a good list for this analysis and update it regularly.

I keep one above my desk for my own personal work at home, so I can always consider what I should be improving and what I should be focusing on. That’s it am I missing anything.

2 Places Where Rappers Needs To Promote A Mixtape | Music Marketing Strategies

What’s up, my name is hit, play of hit, play, beats calm and my goal is to help provide rappers with the knowledge they’re going to need or to turn their dreams into their careers. So if you’re 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, you hear in the background of this article I’ll have all the direct links listed to each of those beats in the description below. So I wanted to make this article because I keep running into rappers, whether it be at local events or at local studios or online, and like there’s this one commonality that I keep finding in everybody that I keep meeting. And I don’t know if it’s just the people that I’m meeting cuz.

I know that there’s other artists that don’t do this, but it’s just the people that I keep running across. So I kind of wanted to address this. So I keep running into rappers that they’re really talented. They have really good music, but they’re only posting their music to SoundCloud. And while that’s great because I know it’s a free platform, you can put your music up, and I know that there’s this idea that you know if you just post enough music or you post music on soundcloud, that you can blow up through soundcloud.

And while that’s not entirely not true, it’s incredibly difficult because there’s so many people doing that and there’s so much music, that’s being posted to SoundCloud every single day that you have to get really lucky like you literally have to be one in a million just to Get that opportunity to be on that chart just so you can be exposed to so many people, and so one of my biggest pet peeves as of recently.

Is that hoping for that and hoping that you blow up? Isn’t a strategy right? It’s not bad to dream and hope that that works out, but there’s other stuff you can do in the meantime and that you should be doing in the meantime, if you’re serious about doing this as a career. So one of the other things that you need to be doing as an artist and like your main key objectives to have your music on as many different platforms that people can discover it on as possible.

So if you’re only posting your music to SoundCloud you’re, limiting the amount of reach and potential fans that you can get on a daily and weekly basis. That also being said, a lot of people are not discovering new music on soundcloud, a lot of people that I know that. Listen to hip hop and rap music on a regular basis, don’t even know what SoundCloud is and they didn’t until I told them about it.

However, these are the same people that come to me on a weekly monthly basis that hey have you heard that new song from so-and-so and they’re always finding new artists and new songs? And so I’m going to tell you in this article the two places that I keep hearing. Everybody mentioned that they’re finding new music and those two places are at YouTube and Spotify. So a lot of people find music through Spotify playlist, because once a song reaches a certain point and it gets a certain amount of plays in a week, it gets thrown into certain playlists and people can discover it a lot easier.

Not only that you have other people sharing music talking about it because it’s in different playlists and they discovered it and they’re, showing their friends right. That’s just Spotify on YouTube. It works a little bit differently where, if a article or your music article or lyric article or a remix, article gets a certain amount of views and a certain amount of read time within a certain amount of allotted time.

Then they’ll start promoting it on the related or like recent released page or like the front page of YouTube, where a lot of people would see it that are interested in hip-hop, music or remixes or whatever it’s because of these algorithms that are on both of these Platforms that it’s helping users find new music on a regular basis, and I wanted to let you guys know this, because, if you’re not on these platforms, yet you’re limiting the amount of reach that you have every single day, you’re eliminating the amount of potential fans and Listens and plays that you can get every single day because with YouTube as an example like with basic SEO, which stands for search engine optimization, which is how you get articles to be searchable right with basic SEO skills.

But you can literally Google, like you, can search on YouTube and say: how do I rank a article or how do I get more views on YouTube or like how do I do SEO for my articles and you’ll find a ton of things? 5. 10. 20. 30. Minutes you can go through learn at what you need to actually be doing to like start getting views and stuff on your articles on Spotify. It’s a little trickier. You need to have an actual fan base and you need to get a certain amount of plays on a consistent basis so that you can start getting into Spotify playlists and have the algorithm on Spotify recommend your music to people.

So, even though Spotify is tricky in the beginning, you still need to have your music there, because anything can happen, and I know a lot more. People listen to music on Spotify on a regular basis and they’re going to add your music to a playlist too. If they like your song, so that means that you can get more and more plays every single month because they added your song to a playlist. And so, if you don’t have any of your music up on Spotify I’ll, have a link in the description that’ll.

Give you a discount to district kid, it’s like $ 20 for a year, but there’s a certain percentage you get off and you click link in the description. So you can go ahead and check that out. If you don’t have any music up already. So I hope this article was helpful if it was make sure you go ahead and you hit that like button down below and if you have any questions comments or concerns ideas for future articles go ahead and drop that in the comment section below as well.

How To Get More Streams On Spotify Daily Without Paying For Ads | Music Promotion

What’s up, my name is hit play if 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 hit that subscribe button down below and you click to notification bell to get notified every time.

I release a new article, also if you like, and the beats you hear in the background of this article, I have the direct links to each of those in the description below. So the reason I’m making this article is because I remembered it was like when I first started making music and having made something that I was so proud of that you know. I just wanted to get out into the world and I wanted to share with people and not having the budget or the means to get it out there and show people what I can do so I’ve been in that position before and I know what it’s like So I just wanted to give you some tips.

You can use to actually get some plays and some results – and you know, hopefully build a fan base based off of your music, that you’re promoting through Spotify. So the first method that we’re going to talk about is actually going to be repost trading or promotion trading. So the way that I would recommend you do this is actually go to Facebook and join some Facebook groups with similar artists that make the similar style of music to you.

So as an example, you can join a trap, rap or only Facebook group and find other artists that make the same style of trap music to you right. So you can either go through there and DM those artists and try to build a connection with them and see if you can trade promotion with them. So basically saying hey I’ll, promote your song for 24 hours on my pages and all my social medias and you promote mine as well.

But the real power of this method is actually going through and finding multiple other artists and networking consistently so that you can actually build up a network of other artists that will promote your music as long as you promote their music, so a simple offer you can Make to another artist would simply be hey. I will promote your music to my fanbase for 12 or 24 hours. If you do the same for me and if you find 10 artists that have 1,000 fans right, that means that that’s 10,000 people that you can be in front of if you do this method, so the second method is actually going to be reaching out to playlist Curators and getting your song on their playlist, so an easy way to do.

This is going to be going to a website called chart, metrics calm, and you can actually go through and search for a specific song that is in your genre or that you have a song that sounds similar to and basically what you can do on chart metrics Is once you search for that specific song? It will pull up all the playlist on Spotify that that song appears in then. You just have to search through the search results and find all the ones that are made by actual people.

So the real playlist curators and not the ones that are made by Spotify a lot of times. You can click on the name of that person and you can actually find their social media and you can actually reach out and message them like through chart. Metrics it’ll. Actually link their Facebook or their Instagram or their snapchat, or something like that. So once you find the playlist curator social media, all you have to do is reach out to them and say hey.

I have a similar song to the song X and I think it would be a great fit for your playlist. Let me know if you want to check it out or you can actually send a link in that message as well, like hey check out this song. It would be great if you would add this to your playlist and then you know like love your playlist or whatever and move on. So, as you can probably imagine, not everybody’s going to answer those type of messages, because I’m sure that there’s probably hundreds, if not thousands, of artists actually messages in daily right, so the more you can do to actually stand out and be genuine, the more likely they’ll.

Actually answer to you, but this is a numbers game right, so the more that you do this and the more playlist curators you actually reach out to the more chances you actually have to be featured on these playlist once you’re in these playlists. You can actually get you know anywhere between ten twenty thirty plays a day from one of these playlists all the way up to a hundred to a thousand plays a day just from any of these smaller playlists, and so the power, and this method is actually getting Your song into multiple playlists, so that more people can see you, so that’s it for this article.

I hope you found it helpful if you did make sure you go ahead. You hit that like button down below and if you have any questions, comments, concerns or ideas for future articles go ahead and drop that in the comment section down below as well. If you need any new beats, go ahead and drop by hit play, beats comm and until next time. Guys here are some more articles.

Smart Artists Do This – How To Grow A Fanbase

Now, who is TJ Chapman he’s Bo, be his manager truck pickles manager guy super experienced. You got ta, listen to this guy in his wisdom or in this article right here. It’s something that is really a lot deeper than a lot of artists realized, and I swear if you reprogram this about how you think about your marketing as an artist.

You will find far more success, because this one thing honestly has the power to in an artist career before they ever have a real shine, and it’s funny it’s funny to me how many artists feel like advertising is cheating. They want to be organic and advertising isn’t organic. What you crazy on man, you think Apple says there when they drop new, damn iPhone all every brand. You think you think of Atlantic says that with cardi B know they put millions of dollars into the marketing to make sure they put it in front of everybody yep.

You know, but you have to put in front of people, so they can see it in the first place to make that decision, whether or not they want to listen yep, and they it just trips me out how they they feel like is cheating or or it’s Not right and man that is business 101. At the end of the day, you have to figure out which of music, how you going first off, you got to find a place for it to live number two.

You got to figure out how you going to give it like, and I can’t tell you none of that for sure. I’m going to shoot at all these methods to try to find the right one and if all of them work or whatever that’s the more the merrier, but I’m not limiting my odds. You know in breaking this record, I’m going to try to expose it every way possible, I’m going to use all the methods that I told you to make sure I expose it to people till I find something to catch, and this record actually gets life.

It’s weird that in the marketplace today is there’s this big pushback or desire to be organic, as if it makes you look right and I don’t and organic and marketing don’t necessarily go in and it has to be artificial. I don’t care if you didn’t pay any money, but I axed you. The fact I asked you to listen to my song personally is me putting in some artificial effort to get you to listen, but you want to you want to start or spark some organic.

That’s what you want your artificial marketing to do, but you got ta, get like that ball rolling and, like you, have there’s so many people that are like I’ll do a article about an artist on blog, for example, and someone might be like, oh man, this is Fake or their industry plan, or they paid already had money, and it’s like you’re talking about them for the methods they use, but they’re hauling their where you want to get like so try to use those methods as opposed to understand, but they did killing themselves up For sure alright, so you might have heard the point you might get the point, but I have to expand on this conversation because, honestly, I don’t think artists understand the gravity of what this is rooted in.

First and foremost, you have to consider that it’s been marketed to artists for years. This whole idea of the starving artists that used to be a real thing that signify purity artists actually took pride in being a starving artist. But do you know why artists were starving because the record labels were taking their money? Somebody was making money off of the artist and then the other artist which is being sold the dream.

So you have to struggle and hustle to even get in a position to get your money taken. That’s been pushed and pushed on artists for a long time now, and there’s still some remnants of that stuff left over to the point where you have this weird classism and artistry, where artists tried to downgrade and discredit people who aren’t moving with a starving artist. Mentality of this just happens. For me it was super organic.

I didn’t use a is mine and infrastructure and way of going about things to boost my career. So, even though you might not have that in all aspects, there might be small subjects where you’re thinking about it. That way, because at the end of the day, when you’re complaining about these other people, it does nothing but make you sound like a loser. And why do I say it like that? Because I think that’s the only way to drive through the point that y’all are playing the same game so to speak, really you’re playing your own game, but everybody is playing this music game in the artist space right.

Well, if that’s true, just like any article game, there’s people who have strengths and weaknesses right, you might have a hundred on power but 50 on speed and something notes on the agility that you might have certain weapons. It’s the same thing. Everybody has different advantages. You might have more time to spend or waste there’s certain things that people have and some people is there certain things.

Other people don’t at the end of the day, there’s the things you have and the things that you don’t have. But when you work through those certain levels of the game, you’re, either losing or you’re winning and various parts of the game you get to the big boss and hey, they have all these different powers that you will have and you either beat them or you lose. You have to make the most out of what you have, because you wouldn’t be complaining if you had the money, if you had a Rich Dad or if you had a big investor, if you had some of these other situations, you’re not going to be saying: hey Yeah, I got a million dollars in the bank, but I’m not going to use it, so I can keep it real.

That’s stupid. First of all, like money does not guarantee success in the game. Connections, do not even guarantee success in the game, so you really playing yourself if you allow yourself to get continue having that narrative out there you’re just allowing that to exist because it makes you feel better. Since I don’t have that, then I can get this. That’s the only reason they have that, and I don’t but again the truth is that’s not the only differentiator it isn’t, because there’s so many rich parents, or so many successful artists that have kids that are nowhere near as big as some of these other artists right.

How many artists are as big as Chris Brown are as big as Drake or as big as chance to rapper are as big-ass Taylor Swift, Beyonce, not to say that these people didn’t have certain connections at certain points of their career, but for the most part, most Of these people started outside of the industry and worked their way up, but there’s so many people with kids that are legends in the game that are not doing it.

Big. No one wants to listen to their music, they have connections, but nobody cares about their money. They’re still not going to the shows, a girls are telling me the other day out. She just went to this show of a girl who has 1.2 million followers on Instagram and the person inside to a legend in the game, and I’m not even talking about old school old school legend. I’m talking about the legend still has high cultural impact today, but the girl didn’t have like 50 people at her show, stop looking at people and say: oh of course they made it because they got a lot of money.

The money does not guarantee the success which brings me back to the fact this whole organic thing as well. It’s something that you guys have to get your mind off of this whole idea. If you’re going to market, if you’re working on marketing right now, then it’s not organic. If you pay for one post to be posted by the influencer you’re already doing something, that’s not organic! By that type of definition, your whole marketing initiative is to do as many artificial things as possible that will bring attention to your product and hope that your product is quality enough, that it sparks and creates organic traffic.

Anybody else who just having to blow up and they didn’t know what was happening. Yeah those people are out there. They did just go viral, but that’s a look at a car. That’s to draw the cars it’s not because they were better than somebody else. That’s just good timing, there’s a lot of people who can sing well right. Well, all these things, but they didn’t post it on the platform and didn’t get seen by certain people, and it didn’t go viral and keep in mind whenever a new platform ages.

It will be harder and harder to be organic if you’re, five six seven years into Instagram and posting there’s not going to be that much organic growth and help because the platform’s build their technology against it they’re different now, and that goes for any other platform. If you get on there early, yes, you might find some good organic growth, but the chances of that go down and down and down every single month of platform ages.

That’s just how it goes, I’m not going to get into all the particular reasons. I just need. You guys to realize is: there is no dishonor in building an audience from paid traffic. If this is a fan base, you have fans, that’s all that matters. It’s not smart, just to be spending money and then people don’t come in to fans. That’s why we talk about strategy and how to do things right, but if you get the end result then great, because there’s a lot of people out there spending the money way more money than you can even imagine and still not getting the result.
