SoundCloud Makes a Power Move: Monetize Your Music!

Now, those of you who don’t know who I am. I am a digital marketing that specialize in helping artists, like you, guys get their songs hired through platforms like Spotify, Instagram, YouTube and bunch of others. Now what I want to talk to you guys about today is a recent Power Move that the streaming platform SoundCloud has made.

I want to get you guys to start to take advantage of this power move, what exactly it is and how I think it will affect you guys as artists in the near future. So with that being said, let’s get right into it. So what exactly is this power move that SoundCloud has made? If you keep up with SoundCloud in any way, shape or form, then you’ve probably heard that they now allowed monetization of the music on their platforms, meaning that you can now make some money because of SoundCloud before the only way to just stuff will get monetize from Them was if you were invited to their SoundCloud premier program or if you knew someone like your distributor, who can help you get your stuff monetize through whatever other means that they may have so like.

I was saying before SoundCloud premier program used to be invite-only, meaning that some flower pretty much had to ask you to come, try it out. That was the only way that you can make money through SoundCloud through them. But now the SoundCloud premier program is open to all creators who use the platform as long as you meet their basic bare minimum requirements. So what exactly does this mean for you guys? It pretty much means that now you have another way to put some money back into your pockets now before.

One of the main arguments that I used to hear against SoundCloud is that you were literally giving your music away for free, and why would you do that? Now I know technically on platforms like Spotify and like title you’re, not charging your fans for your music, but at least those platforms were attempting to pay you guys for your streams. I always thought it was kind of weird that, with SoundCloud the main source of traffic, which is you guys, was not being compensated for the amount of work that they put in unless SoundCloud deemed you worthy to be so.

To be honest with you guys, I think the SoundCloud opening up its premiere program is an attempt for them to keep their core consumer base happy, which is music artists. You guys, I think that SoundCloud has finally realized that they have been driving you all the way to their competitors, to Spotify, to Apple music, to title to Pandora, all of their competing services, and they aren’t you guys back.

I think they want you all to at least seriously consider SoundCloud as a platform that you need to really work and drive traffic to, and they knew that. The best way to do so was to finally start paying you guys for the work that you’ve been putting in and finally the part of the article that I’m sure you guys have been waiting for. How can you join SoundCloud premiere program so that you can start to monetize your music and make some money well, like I was saying earlier in the article, you must first meet their basic criteria, which are pretty much as follows.

First, you have to have at least a SoundCloud Pro or SoundCloud Pro and limited account, meaning that you can’t monetize your music. If you only use their free account, you also can only monetize original music, meaning no remixes, no cover songs. None of that guys. You also can’t have any copyright claims against your account. So if you ever uploaded something that didn’t belong to you and you got a claim against it, this may be something that causes you a little trouble.

I would definitely look more deeply into it if this applies to you and lastly, you must have at least 5,000 strings within the last month from countries that SoundCloud Dean’s eligible I’ll make sure to leave the article about that in the description below, so that you can Dig a little bit more deeply into it. There’s always guys if you feel, like you learned anything today, please like and share this article hit those post notifications as well as I wouldn’t want you guys to miss anything once again.

My name is Corey and I’ll see. Y’All next time,

How to Grow On Soundcloud [Digital Dash w/ Kohrey]

Now, for those of you who don’t know who I am digital marketing myself, I specialize in helping artists, like you, guys, get their songs heard through platforms like Spotify, Instagram, YouTube and a bunch of others. What I want to talk to you guys about today is how to run up your place on soundcloud, and this isn’t a platform that I necessarily will recommend you guys to work.

I do personally have my own beliefs about SoundCloud and trust me I’ll be doing a article on that in the future. But I haven’t gotten a lot of questions from you, guys asking me how you can start to build your place up on soundcloud how you can start to get your songs out there so on and so forth. So I want to give you guys a couple of tips, some that I’ve noticed and kind of seen in my recent past working with SoundCloud and some they have come directly from SoundCloud themselves.

They recently put out a blog article talking about ways that you can optimize your soundcloud page, so that your songs are spread a lot more, so I’ll be digging into that as well. So with that being said, let’s get right into it all right now. The first tip comes directly from SoundCloud itself and it’s make sure that you’re as discoverable as possible, meaning that you want to have your titles and your descriptions in order.

Don’t have anything like track number one. The track number two and don’t add any unnecessary and extra characters or symbols that will make it hard for people to find you. So whatever your name is on Instagram or Twitter or whatever other profiles, you use make sure that it’s as close to it as possible within the track description and the track title for your song, so that people can easily lift you up and find you.

You also want to make sure that your album art is the highest quality and resolution, as you can possibly get. Soundcloud doesn’t really like to work with low res photos and I’ll make it a little harder for you to be discovered and for people to want to actually come and check you out when they do stumble upon your profile. The main thing here, guys is consistency. Consistency across your track descriptions, consistency across your titles and consistency across your album art will make you very discoverable on soundcloud, giving you a better chance of being picked up by the platform’s algorithm and having your songs actually spread out within the platform, and the second thing That you guys want to make sure that you’re doing is taking the advantage of sound clouds genre and mood now, just like all the other streaming platforms.

Soundcloud does in fact have its own algorithm that they used to determine how other people are hearing songs and what songs come up next after this song and so forth and so forth. So SoundCloud uses their algorithm based on the tax and the genres that you guys are using. So you want to use as many as you possibly can. That relates to your song and relate to your audience. So if you’re a rapper, your manager, I’m attack may be hip hop.

You may have a chilled mood or a sleepy mood, or something like that tagging it with as many relevant tags as possible, increases your chance of being picked up by the algorithm being spread to these people, who are looking for songs based on these types of tags. In these types of genres and increasing your chance that you actually hit the audience that you want to hit and that’s the best way to make sure that your music spreads on soundcloud, honestly so before each song release make sure that you have a list of tags.

And subgenres listed out that you can use with each song time and time again. This way, you’ll make sure to hit the same niche over and over spreading your music out amongst the people, who really care about the types of songs that you’re making and putting you in front of a relevant audience anyway. Now the next thing that you’ll want to make sure that you’re doing is taking advantage of repost networks and the repost function on soundcloud in general.

Now, in my opinion, they don’t work as well as they did. I would say two or three years ago, but they’re still the most effective way for you to grow your song on SoundCloud itself. You can either reach out to people who are bigger than you and see how much they’re charging for repost I’ve seen a couple of popular DJs and even like smaller lesser-known artists, who still have large fan bases who offer repost as well or you can take advantage Of repost network, which is a website that actually sales repost from different large SoundCloud accounts, just go in there and make a profile dig through the ones that make the most sense.

For you see how much they cost and get those guys to repost as long as well or if you guys, are trying to stay more inside of your budget or if you don’t really want to spend money on repost at all. What you can do is start the build your own repost network, using friends, artists, DJs and producers, who are all in similar size and demographic as you as well. This would make it easier because your starter kind of associate brands with people who are also trying to build themselves up and pretty much be sharing fan bases with other people who can pretty much pitch it into yours and you’ll be helping a lot.

By doing the same now on SoundCloud, your repost network is like gold, so they’re stronger, vennett way that you build the better chances that you have of spreading your song out outside of your own network, increasing its views, increasing its reach and increasing your chance of picking Up new fans, so just to give you guys a little recap. The first thing that you want to do is make sure that you’re as discoverable within the platform itself, meaning that you want to make sure that your titles are order, that your descriptions are in order and that you’re using the same name on soundcloud as the one That you’re, using on all your other social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter or whatever it is that you guys are using the second thing that you’ll want to do is make sure that you’re using SoundCloud genre and mood tags, like I said, SoundCloud has its own Algorithm that it uses to determine songs that played next with in other people’s on Play, listing and their track efforts, and things like that.

So, the more that you tag your songs or there’s many relevant tags as possible, the better chance that you have of SoundCloud algorithm, picking you up and spreading your songs in the platform without you even having to do much work. And the third thing that you guys want to do is make sure that you build a strong repost network. You can do this by hitting up DJ’s or rappers or other artists who are offering repost for whatever price.

It is that they offer make sure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck and it actually helps to spread your song or you can always tap into artists who have a similar genre and niche and same size following as you two start, the build you Guys it’s on repost network of similar style artists, or you can always use a website like repost Network, just go in make an account find pages that are actually offering repost and figure out, which ones make the most sense for you, your style of music and your Budget now make sure to leave their link to the original SoundCloud blog post in the description below, so that you guys can check out some of the other tips that they had.

I didn’t feel like really needed that much of a real description, but you can always go through it, read through it yourself and get from it. What you need now, as always guys if you feel like you, learned me pain today, please make sure you like to share this article, hit those post notifications so that you guys don’t miss anything. I want you guys to learn everything and anything that you possibly can with.

That being said, my name is Corey and I’ll see y’all next time.

I FINALLY Tried SoundCloud Promotion… | TEST 1

All right, I was asked to review repost exchange and I was like I’ve. Never done it before I’ve never used repost exchange, so I can’t really review it. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to use it live right and let you guys go through my first time experiencing using it trying to keep it really short about less than 10 minutes and I’m going to let you see the phases and what I Think about in the process, let’s get into it all right.

So, as you guys already know, I’m not an artist. So what I’m going to do is take an artist profile that we work with all right. Her name is Hadassah really dope. Music definitely go check her out and we’re going to push this track by the name of my funny Valentine. Did you see this track was released two months ago, four thousand five hundred twenty nine followers, no streams and then seven comments.

188 likes 14 repost. Now I’m interested to see what we can get this thing to I’m going to do in phases, because, honestly, I’ve never used a platform before so there’s just some of that. Some of the apprehension, like am I doing this wrong? Am I wasting the money? How does this really go? I’r going to go to 500, the first time around and just to do it like at this phase and then later on, I’m going to probably try to just blow the rest of the budget, but I want to do it one time.

Just to get a feel of it and we’ll do an update with both portions of it. So for this first one I’m not going to get fancy use the budget to identify as useful comments. It’s already selected, so I’ll just leave it how it is. If I go down in each onra, three posters must meet the following conditions. Preferred jamas must include now doesn’t seem to make sense to include any genre, so I’m going to use the track genre or as she chose or in being so so we’re going to have people who’s referred.

John is a army and soul right. The genre of the song, the rest of this stuff max followers max number of repost max number of repos per day average – I’m not fully. You know, I don’t know, I don’t have any preferences so I’ll just leave the defaults on and this other thing up here. I kind of grazed by it, but I did read it one time earlier: the campaign, no, actually everybody might not be able to hit it, and then they say they have yeah again now in terms of these other.

Now, in terms of max number followers, repost or Reapers now, in terms now in terms of max number of followers repulsed or repost per day, I don’t really have a preference and I don’t really understand enough to know whether I should go higher or more. I can play some logic to it, but again it’s the first time. So, let’s just do it run it start with 500. Do I have to do anything else all right reaches at 0.

We’re just getting this thing started. Here is article 1 phase 1 and let’s see what happens here is phase one of my repost exchange test. Let’s see where he goes alright, so I think it’s more effective to put part 1 and 2 in the same article for the first time around. So that’s exactly what’s about to happen, but before I even get into the results I want to say I actually love it already enough to go ahead and say use the free version of this.

It is a free version of it. You can have paid stuff. If you want to boost things faster, but use the free version of it and you can get your stats up I’ll put a link in the description below, because these stats look like this, I got a change of 227 streams, 22 likes 24 repost and 11 comments. This is over a day and but I’ll go deeper into it in my pre-recorded article, so you can see what I think about everything alright, and these are eleven comments that got made.

I myself made some comments not on this article, but on other people’s stuff. So I know how a real it is. I’ve been a part of the process you can get on the platform. You can test that out. You’ll see how you can pretty much there for the most part like this isn’t happening. Real I’ve gotten requests in there and credits and commenting on people’s stuff and I’m not going to get into the details of how they verify and make sure it’s pretty quality.

But let’s get into some other details. Cuz you’ll see, on the back end all the comments that were made because of the campaign and the repost exchange. Your vocals are smooth and well control. Alright, there’s all this cool stuff. I love this. I can’t wait to hear more from you there’s some of these comments that are pretty funny, but here’s the thing for me get more credits. So when I say I’ve spent 500 credits $ 29.

99 will buy you, one cows and critters. I spent 14 dollars 49 and a half cents and got those it was those results. So we’re not even talking about a lot of money piled on your credit sounds like a lot, but we’re breaking it down that I got a 132 blaze and 11 comments and authentic comments and some repose for $ 14. When we’re talking about my vinik, this is beautiful. Alright, I think it’s something that a lot of people should really consider and keep in mind, but I actually am running a second-level campaign with Hadassah, because I don’t want to just do it as a one-off situation.

Alright, we ran 500 one time. 500, more credits run another campaign with pedasi. Now, if you look at this, of course, you put their profile link in there. You click my funny Valentine or the solar running, but I want to do things a little bit differently. This time also ignore the sean talking in the corner, because that sean talking in the corner is wrong. I had to report your first time on you, so 500 credits, I’m let you begin I’m going to leave.

They enable comments plus on there and then I’m going to leave I’m going to take it back to R & B soul right. I want to keep it on our diesel for a reason, and that reason is the first time I tested it. I do the RV, so what I want to try to figure out this time is what is the impact of changing the maximum number of followers? So, yes, you guys know this platform works, but is there a better reason or a better quality of campaign that you can get from doing a certain maximum number of followers and you’re filtering? A lot of that can lead back to simply the idea that it’s someone with more followers you post yourself, then you’re going to have a higher reach which we’ll get back into, but even with that being said, you still are going to have to spread that same Amount of credit, so people with more reach, they actually are more costly or can be more costly.

We’re going to wait and see what the second phase of a Dyson’s campaign looks like, and I’m also going to throw another track into the mix, because it’s not fair to just do a goss’s track. I think it is great, but I know some people might say. Well, you know she has a little bit of a following that y’all have been building on another platform, maybe that spilled over into SoundCloud. If you look at the time, if you look at the timing of the results, know the results.

If you look at the timing of the results to the track on Spotify, being it’s pretty clear that it came to Rico’s exchange and not the other platforms, because we market other platforms to go to Spotify music blank, I’m going to start this artist who’s starting pretty Much from Ground Zero, so y’all can see what that looks like stay tuned all right, so that was my first experience with repost, exchanging, as I said, I’m going to keep testing and I’m going to keep doing these articles showing you all.

You know what my results. Look like so you can get that idea, especially for the ones who need to continue to like see logic. Some of y’all are just going to hop in right, and some of y’all are just going to continue to learn before you use either way it’s fine, but I’m telling you. I think it’s worth it, especially since there’s a free tier, where it’s more manual labor to get your your music feedback and get other people to see it versus paying any kind of money at all.

That’s why I went ahead and suggested it so soon, because there’s a free tier, where there’s low risk but paid campaigns. I think they’re worth it as well on this platform go ahead and check it out. The Lincoln is it is in the description below repost exchange. I think we’re onto something but keep reading the test. All right. Let’s see if I changed my mind, I doubt it all right, but let’s see where I’m going to I’m going to do several other articles to make sure y’all are tuning in as educated as possible before you make any kind of crazy mistakes and, as always, if You, like this article, go ahead and like button.

7 steps to build your fanbase like Chance the Rapper [Music Marketing]

The rapper and I should say a fanatical fan base because chance forever has probably the realest fan base. There is, and I mean fan base, not just I like their music so gets most plays. I’m talking about really mobilizing people ease. Has the realest fan base you’ll, see what I’m talking about in hip hop right now in terms of a young artist, especially for me independent? So, let’s start as a group, my dad is like you know he was a campaign.

Many people in office put show people to the people right, um and my dad at a certain point. Kind of campaign managed me in and showed me out of, like you know, print flyers and and move on foot and work organically with the people. Do I do you, like my base, use a political activist kind of yeah, I’m for the people right, so this is what to think about. How can you campaign like chance, because he learned from his dad and his dad was a campaign manager? So what do campaign managers campaign like this is what we’re going to go over in this article, but I’m I’m an artist of sorts and uh from Chicago for the people.

So in this clip Chan said he’s four other people in the last clip he fades for the people and he put his fist up and that’s number one when it comes to campaign management. Know who you are. It sounds kind of weird sounds kind of corny but know who you are because you have to have a clear understanding of who you are to know how you want to communicate with the people. Everyone who doesn’t know who don’t know chance, the rapper – you don’t sell your music.

No, it’s free, yeah! Um! Do you know you know you can how do you? How do you make money? Ah yeah, I’m on tour right now, I’m a touring artist as music grows. There there’s always new ways of releasing it. You know, there’s visual albums and you know old concerts and big Broadway musicals. It rule number two know your audience. So what does that really mean right? First, you have to know who you are, then you have to know who your audience, because you have to know how to communicate in Iraq.

With that audience chance doesn’t sell records his audience the young audience. People want to hear that shit these days. They don’t want to hear anybody crying about how oh I don’t make enough money or people should start paying, because if they don’t want to hear that that’s dead, so not only does he resonate even stronger with this audience by not actually selling his music, but he Also even goes on to speak of these creative ways that he could make money anyway, and that kind of stuff just makes you like him even more right, because the way, if he thought of was give more content, Broadway shows and touring actually giving more to the Audience to his fans, as opposed to just trying to figure out some kind of sneaky business ways, and I want to go back and really how he redone the audience reacts once again when he says he doesn’t sell music, everyone who doesn’t know who don’t know chance.

The rapper, you don’t, sell your music, no, it’s free, yeah! Um! Do you know you know you can’t see that speaking to his audience and knowing how to get them and move them. But let’s move on from there. We can go into that later. Have a story to tell this huge part of any campaign management: this is how you move people. You can think civil rights, how people have this entire moving this back story of slavery.

Things like that to move people on well, look how chance with tenday, had a complete story around and I’m going to let intelligent explain the current of attending 10 day was, I recorded. While I was on a 10-day suspension from high school. What you do why I get suspended, we I have yeah. I have marijuana I’ll know what the rules are for everybody, everything I have. We not really a lot of wheat, but like on on school property.

I guess like a half. A zip was, if not like, like a like a maybe maybe a quarter, maybe a quarter. I don’t smoke, I was, but they were trying to say I had intenta. So what I did I had it in one bag. It was for me it doesn’t matter user. I wasn’t really trying to say nothing. I don’t know what was incriminating. What was not, I was chilling so when you hear chance tell this story, this makes people relate to them, particularly in that age range.

This was his very first drop. You have a story as a whole concept, but it’s not even all this. It’s not so abstract. It’s 10 days, ok, 10 days of suspension. A lot of people can relate to suspensions. I was suspended twice. Then you have this concept of. We people could relate to the weed, there’s so many ways and things people could relate to a story, and people will always pull what they can relate to most out of that story, because it resonates with them and it gives them a visual of who.

The person is, people are always trying to figure out who is this artist they’re, trying to figure out ways to get closer when you even look at acid rap acid rap had a story in itself just the whole idea of acid rap. It creates a story of who you think chance is what you expect from the music and now, even if you didn’t have any kind of name from the music now you’re thinking. Okay, what made him think that he must have been on acid right and even coloring book the last project that had a story in himself.

It was a lot less straight-4 in the first two projects, but when you have such a strong fan base and following at that point, people are going to be listening for some kind of concept and creating themselves and what you could probably get out of. That is just the fact that he’s in a better place in life and that’s kind of the constant theme throughout that whole project he’s a better place. Thank God.

He you know is having having a child and whoops girl all that kind of stuff. But it’s constantly constantly implementing stories to give your crowd or ticking people something to resonate and move with, because when people can relate to you, they feel closer to you when they feel closer to you. They will do more for you and as an artist. That’s how you have power and we’ll get to that later on, so look at this chance is just making a tweet Chicago Bulls.

So not only is he staying strong with his local folks, but that’s just a small little interaction. That’s how a lot of people use Twitter and then you look at this tweet between these cute little baby. Look at the babies. It’s Halloween people got their babies, dresses chance the rapper once again it’s how strong is showing how strong his fan base is. People have babies dressed like this dude, and this is young and his career, think about it and then look baby baby baby.

Look at these cute little babies. That is a strong, strong engagement with his audience. He stays engaged with this audience. When you constantly engage with your audience, you become more real to your audience. People love you even more and a lot of people. They don’t necessarily well a lot of artists. I mean they want this whole mysterious thing and that’s the thing you’re going for you know the whole press thing.

That’s a different type of story, that’s a different strategy, but this is for those people who want really strong engaged audiences. That would do damn near anything. For you and that’s what chance has he’s development uh not that many years ago I was, you know, still trying to pass out my mixtape I’m still trying to pass out my mixtapes. Do you guys know how hard it is to make tell everybody know your music like even when people feel like you know, you can’t get much bigger or your musics played everywhere, like when you’re artists, your soul, you know purpose is to like share your music with Everybody, this is a key up from two reasons.

Really I just can’t escape every single time. I have a article, I’m not going to make it a core strategy, because it’s obvious and everybody should do it to the max – get attention. It shows that he understands this. Even as big as he is, he’s still passing out resources, but that’s only a small two of the iceberg to also touch about the fact that he’s galvanizing his resources. He even recognizes himself as a resource and still to this day passes out mixtapes when he gets a chance, but I’m going to show even stronger version of galvanizing resources at the end so check this out.

If you guys don’t know about chance, the rapper buddy in the middle Donnie trumpet and the social experiment, that’s all these guys around them. He constantly works with these guys in various ways, but they even had a social experiment. Project collaboration is a key. It’s a strong key when it comes to campaigning that whole campaign management style, because you want to strengthen the relationship.

It’s all about relationships, if you notice everything that is, I’ve talked about any that he’s done. It’s all about creating strong bonds at scale with a lot of people, it’s hard to create bonds with a lot of people and make them strong. But if you can, then you can move mountains. That’s that Martin Luther King type stuff, and also you got to have a team. I just put that in parentheses down there, so some of these people, these friends, are also is his team in various projects in various ways as well, we’ll have a whole nother article.

I’m about just team in general, if it’s necessary enough people want to hear about that, though also collaboration. I don’t know if you guys even understand how huge of a deal for independent artists, especially hip-hop, to be on Ellen, it’s fucking ridiculous. It doesn’t happen at all press the chance call them friends. Chances might have broke a barrier, so now more people might be in that window.

Now that he’s broken through but Ellen is the hugest. It doesn’t make sense, but look at this collaboration look at some more collaboration. Everybody knows probably already that’s to change a little Wayne. Sorry Skrillex is over here in the background with them on Stephen Colbert, another mind-blowing, the fact that he was on there and then, if you check this out, I think this was on Jimmy Fallon collaboration with Anthony Hamilton, ty dolla sign Rory to the far right.

Obviously, he’s the guy that’s kind of darkened out right there. You don’t see collaborations like these, and all this was one super super interesting collaborations. I’ve seen the fact that he was smart enough to do something like this, because they weren’t on the regular track, at least well, probably on some kind of vocal course, but to actually bring them out. I heard of. But it shows how he constantly built abnormal relationships and makes them very strong mobilize now we’re getting to the sweet stuff.

I just have to put this one on Front Street because when you have a combination of all those things that we’ve talked about so far, all right mobilize is number seven. You really have power when I say you can do more and move mountains to do something like this right chance. The rapper had a parade to vote this election. Obviously Donald Trump won, but he had all these people come out around him. He had a free concert.

They had people walk with him to vote. You see Richard Branson tweeting this. I don’t know if you guys understand how huge that is this dudes, a billionaire friend, even though chances and there’s so much like, I said about that, there’s really show how chance is really creating a movement and you can create a powerful movement too. If you follow these southern strategies, it takes time it takes some.

You know some smarts, but then there are also other strategies like. I said that once again I’ll go over more. If people want to hear different strategies, I just need to get that feedback in those views share this with your friends, if you think they’ll be interested if they’re just trying to campaign or if they want to be rappers and campaign, that way too great following all So I’ll just drop it off.

If you really want to have that following once again, I can’t reiterate enough: you can follow these steps and you can end up possibly looking like this Oh be here from you guys subscribe, dropping something. Next week you


My favorite musician as of right now.

What artists can learn from tech founders?

You would think Layne Becker would be excited about this, but he literally vomited when this occurred. Why is that? He made no money and when I say he made no money, I’m talking about zero him and his early investors. How did this happen? We will get into that, but that’s the premise of this article, the fact that artists and founders are so much alike. A lot of times we actually over demonize the music industry, not realizing that this is just how business goals.

If you don’t handle your business, and I want to contrast the differences between the two actually more of the similarities between the two, hopefully you’ll be able to transfer the knowledge, see how it applies and, at the end of the day, become a better business person. In your own particular area, so starting with the artist and the founder right, those are the same person in this example and similar to the artist right.

Their first round of funding where they get their first money is either themselves when they’re starting their company. Maybe they might be hitting up friends and family, there’s literally a friends and family around that people use colloquially a lot because they’re kidding up calling everybody in the family asking for money trying to save money for the business or angel investors, which is kind of a Somewhat of a next level, these are people who will invest, they have money but they’re, not truly those venture capitalists, which is the next level.

It’s the same thing for an artist right, you’re, either funding it yourself or you’re, scraping around asking people. You know the next level is when things really starts to get tricky, though all right, the venture capitalists and the record labels, so the venture capitalist, obviously the founder side, we’re thinking about tech and a lot of the other industries and then the record label side, because Both of these people can be helpful all right, but at the same time, these people are no one to play with.

So leverage is important for both companies on both sides. We hear so much about artists needing to build leverage if they really want to get a deal where they’re not screwed with a label, but the same thing goes when it comes to business in general, if you’ve readed any episodes of Shark Tank. What do you see? What are yourselves that’s one of the main things they’re going to add. They might entertain all the other stuff, but before they start investing they’re like yo, what are the sales – and it might have been this great pitch to where they were so bought in, but once they hear they’re in zero sales, they’re like whoa same thing, for an Artist right, why does that make sense? Because if anybody is investing in you, they’re investing to get a return and their return has to answer to what actually happens with the investment right? Do you have fans? Can you make the money back? Is your product sellable? Do people actually want your product? Can you make the money back? That’s the end question, and that doesn’t mean that nobody appreciates art.

That doesn’t mean that nobody appreciates somebody meeting a chance and all that stuff. It just means if you were an investor, you expect your money back, so you have to analyze not based on the heart and what I believe is awesome, music and all that stuff you have to analyze on. Will this vehicle bring me back my money, you put yourself in a better position to have some sort of leverage Point Blank period and if we look at Shark Tank again is another example.

You’ll see right that people get some pretty bad deals at times or offers write. Some pretty aggressive offers some of the investors to take a lot of control from the people if they don’t believe that the person is right, so you’ll see a situation where literally Mark Cuban – or somebody will say, hey, I’m going to just give you this much money. But I want the whole business cuz. I don’t think you’re the right person to run it, the less sales you have, the less likely people will want it at all or the more they’ll want to control your situation.

Point Blake, so leverage. Now, on the founder side, you might have customers or users and on the artist side, of course, you have fans and in the same way as an artist you’re looking for your first fans right and you’re, getting your early product out there, the early version of yourself Out there, businesses are doing the same right. They have a a minimal, Viable Product right, the product that can find and connect with the fans who need it, the most or the users who need it, the most and they’re trying to connect with those people.

So they can get some feedback and some money that gives them a tomorrow, so they can build and continue to get another tomorrow and another tomorrow until they get to a point where they’re a full-blown business that can is truly self sustained. That’s the same thing that you’re trying to do as an artist right, you’re, trying to build fans and build fans until they can start to fund tomorrow and then fund another tomorrow.

Until you have a lot of tomorrow’s and your tomorrows become weeks months and years, you have a full-on career, it’s the same path, business in so many ways it’s sex, especially principally, is business so that core product and your core fan base. Those are the things that start to relate right: the core product with the core customers and then the core music, like that initial, that niche type music, not just your commercial stuff, and then the core fan base around that and both of these.

This is when it gets more interesting and something that has to be readed out for, and that is the fact that there is core product on both ends. You have the type of music of yours that your core fanbase loves and a company has its core product right. That thing that solves the initial need, but both have a tendency to get caught up in features so for a product in a company features, are something that are additional to the main thing that matters, and sometimes the features are so shiny that we’re like yo.

I’m going to chase this, and this is going to change the world, and this is what they’re going to want they’re going to love me. But the thing fails in the same way the iPad, it’s kind of a feature of a product right when we’re thinking about a bigger company. It’s an extended brand line that doesn’t necessarily have the need of the phone and it doesn’t have the need of the Mac. In itself, it’s that middle ground, but you can do the same thing with a specific product.

Let’s say my Mac, all of a sudden had a heat pad. That was warm because it would be cold outside right at the mouse. Like I touched it and all of a sudden the computer got warm. I could put my hand on it. Yeah, that’s nice, but I can’t put my entire direction of my company on that, because it’s not the core product, even though it’s cool companies get lost on that. That sounds like an obvious example, but companies get lost on that all the time and artists do something similar when they try to get caught up in this whole diversity thing – and I want to do all this stuff, but forget what my core fanbase loves me for And it’s nice, you are a person, you should be able to express yourself and get all these other things out, but you also when we’re talking about it from a business and have to be able to answer to who your core fan base is and what’s going To keep you in there and then last but not least, this is where we get back to get satisfaction that acquisition, how to founder, had zero dollars, losing control alright and there’s two ways to look at it.

First, you have to lose control that happens with a lot of founders and the business starts to go down. We can even look at Steve Jobs, even though you know, arguably, he wasn’t completely ready to even take it to the space that it eventually became, but the whole idea of losing the DNA of your company losing the DNA of your company, those founders losing control, because You decide I’m going to put a CEO in this place – a seasoned CEO in this place, because the founder doesn’t have that experience and I, as an investor, want to make sure that my investment is protected.

I don’t want to trust this newbie with it. That happens to a lot of founders. They literally get booted just for a seasoned. Ceo now same thing happens with artists as well, though, when you get in labeled situations, and you get all these, you know mines in the pot. In that situation, the artist is losing creative control, so you’ll hear a lot of artists, say man, I listen to too many people, or I allowed other people to really take on my project when it wasn’t coming for me and now, because I lost that creative control.

My product became something that it shouldn’t have and the companies get affected the same way they go down because the consumers they feel it, but in the last level of losing control that I’m referring to is obviously the fact that this founder lost control of their business And how did they lose control of their business? They lost control of their business through investments all right, because these people start to own more and more of your business.

In the same way, your masters might be owned if you’re, an artist right or whatever your IP right, your your image can literally be owned as an artist. This same thing essentially happened to this man in Layne Becker story. You can actually see a combination of all the things that went wrong because in 2010, three years after I’m founding the company, he got pushed out three years after the company sold five years later.

But it didn’t just sell because it was doing well it’s sold because it was either going out of business or it was going to be acquired. There was something called a fire sale which means look week. Somebody buyers over out of here. We don’t really have a choice, and why was it in that position? Maybe some of that could be contributed to not having that initial creative energy that person that was supposed to be there in the same way, the artist should be involved in their project in that creative process, they lost that DNA when they lost the founder.

That can play a large part into that situation and then, last but not least, though Becker actually admitted to not being honest with himself and that being a large portion of why he lost control. And what I mean by that is think about as an artist when an artist wants to hop into a deal knowing they’re, not in a position to be in control of their career, knowing that they don’t have a true fan base that reality is not there.

However, they allow themselves to think and feel that they’re bigger than they are, or they allow other people to pump themselves up to feel that way, because the label or whoever you’re, trying to sign to it’s going to pump you up and make you feel that way. They allow that to happen, and then you put yourself in a aggressive financial situation that you can’t account for right. You take a bigger investment that you’re not going to be able to pay back.

It’s an artist taking a huge advance when they know that their fan base isn’t in place or just taking more money that you need in general, where you can one operate by yourself or maybe you just need a little bit to get you by, but instead you Want to go for the big pot when you’re not ready to even take that bike. It’s something to consider, because, again, all these problems exist in all types of business.

The principles are always there is just if you notice them or not and again, no matter what type of business you’re not going to win doing bad business. That just is how the game is going to be set up. You can’t expect anybody there’s going to be putting money into you to look at you purely for who you are and and the amazingness of the product. At the end of the day, they have to make their money back that’s their goal, and then you have your particular goals, but once you take their money, you also have to answer to their goals as well, because you have a fiduciary responsibility.

That’s just something to consider. Please please of course, start to look at other forms of business to really inform how you can look at music and and move throughout your music career and people outside of you know: music, look at music because music is helpful. There’s situations and analogies are all there. I would like to know what you guys think. Do you guys see similarity between tech founders and artists? Do you guys see any other business celebrities or have any other stories? Anything that’s interesting to tell and other than that.

ARTISTS…Do You Think This Will Ruin Your Career?

All these other types of things before you can be a musician before you can blow as an artist.

It’s just not true people. Let me put this out here plain and clear: not only do we have people like Queen Nyjah, who recently, who was a youtuber and blew up with her song medicine, I did a article on her dropped. It just recently, there’s also so many other examples right here. Let’s just look at the fact that Drake was a TV star before he blew up as an artist long before he blew up as an artist on the grassy.

You have people, like Will Smith, who was a rapper actor, then movie star by the time that he was a movie star and next generation came a lot of people, even though he was a rapper first, they got introduced to him as a rapper. First, look at Donald Glover Donald Glover was a skit writer. Then he was a screenwriter for TV. Then he was a comedian. Then he was an artist that blew up and not only was he a rapper that he became a singer.

All of these things are possible. There’s so many examples of people doing one thing before the other and then changing careers completely and rebranding. I can’t tell you how many people that I might discover and say: hey Dad. You know that guy from such-and-such and then he’ll be like I mean that person that was a singer back in a day or this person, who was an actor back in the day, but I know them for something completely different than what they used to be.

Or what they blew up is all about getting attention at first, the only thing that’s preventing your music for not blowing up. If you already have a big platform like a big YouTube following big Instagram following is two things one in music, it’s just not good enough to your music is good enough, but you don’t have the ability to make enough people here, your music and I’m not just Talking about your YouTube father and who might be following you largely for one thing, but then a decent proportion of them actually listen to the music.

I mean to spread that music for real for real beyond that following now, if their song is strong enough, those people should organically spread it. When we even look at people who get record deals, those record deals usually allow people to easily spread their music pass. Their own social, following it’s honestly, not that complicated again and again and again, I can show you a billion examples of just people who have one career.

Then they get another career people who didn’t start off this on rappers or musicians, and then they got other careers and vice versa, do not let people convince you that shoot should not start a YouTube page or an Instagram page as a part of your brand to Blow up, unless you just don’t think that fits into the brand of who you want to be that just isn’t your personality. That makes sense. It’s all cool, it’s all good if it just doesn’t make sense for your particular path, but if you’ve got the talent to – and you are actually willing to – why not do it? It’s going to give you an unbelievable control of your audience and your own platform.

It becomes your own media platform to market yourself again and again and again and might get you to money a little bit quicker than it would take for a lot of artists to get something sustainable. Those are just my two cents. Please keep that in mind. Other than that, I would love to know, you guys comments, your thoughts go ahead and put them in the comment section below and if you like, this article go ahead, he did like letting me be like you.

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.

Can Influencers Become Artists? Best Platform For MONEY | Keith Dorsey (@YoungGunsCEO)

I deal with a lot of these real-life youtubers in real life instagramers and sometimes the youtubers looked down on creators like instagram creators like because it’s one of my bros just shake frost and like Robbie that we’re all fresh a shout out to the shade hill.

Why are you doing this like you? Just they don’t they don’t like there’s too much work on Instagram, they believe for a little of nothing because they see it differently but like if you are creator, you were created a lot of the Instagram. I must look at the youtubers, like oh they’re, little douchebags, who do nothing and have no creativity. You know so it’s like night and day like and they battle each other.

Then it’s like clicks like. Oh, this is a youtube click Instagram Cleo. We don’t click together. Right, it’s so we’re. Like you see this blog, I can go to LA you’ll notice it but they’re all still friends, but it’s like there’s a like dial. We had the you exactly so it’s like it’s it’s night day but YouTube. Will I’ve seen it bro instagram has change lives, but I’ve seen a lot of the creators going YouTube and I mean they’re making twenty thirty thousand a month like we’ve died, read the shade like.

I saw all this do this, but I read the shade, like literally go for nothing to jump on buying a new g-wagen moving his family from one part of the LA to it, the best part of LA and we’re all the parties, because we like we’re seeing This and I’m like bro, I’m so proud of you just out of nowhere just start to blow up even Labadee, I’m running a lot of the the two girls famous ocean and kung-fu, the two sisters like they have literally they did nothing.

They went that they had like almost 300,000 subscribers on YouTube and they didn’t even create, but they just started to create these dope articles in like one hit, and we did a prank it actually hit. This scar last week came from a prank. She did like this prank on her boyfriend. He got really mad. He was like he’s like. I tried to get him down and this happened, but that article is about to hit a million yeah about the hit of million views.

Is that six hundred, maybe several hundred K now in like a few days and that one article has made, is making like thousands of dollars and I’m like y’all, you see if you create creating, don’t keep pumping it. She pumped the next article. It went like a hundred thousand like two hours like if using I keep pumping y’all keep pumping, keep pumping cuz, that’s money in time. Y’All have these goals yeah I want to buy g-wagen see.

I want to move your family here. Y’All want to live in these condos, it’s so easy to do because YouTube and came to become like that residual base of your life, where you know you’re going to get five thousand to ten thousand a month, and then you can go and create yeah. Just all that article in doing those articles, that’s going to make you go viral they’re already going viral just to copy. You know it’s so easy to do.

You sit here and put a ring light up and do whatever it is, and just pranks challenges vlogs like because people wanted their fans can see another perspective of their life. They see the inside. They really want to read that you know and that’s why YouTube is. If it’s hard, though it doesn’t convert, don’t think you don’t go on Instagram and didn’t blow up your YouTube. No, it’s a whole other different algorithm.

It’s a whole nother different way of doing things and once you’ve figured it out, you can master. You could really do some big things with exactly yep, because they just did one for the first time, the famous ocean kung-fu, and they had to do what’s called lash BAE with these lashes and they want it like this 30-second 10-second clip in the front, and it Was like well, it goes in the front. It’s like it was like.

How do I say it? How do I do it, so they got paid couple thousand to do that. Artists have a perspective against doing what your influencers are actually doing. Right. There’s this conversation where a lot of artists feel like you can’t translate over from an influencer to an artist. It’s not true. I don’t understand he still give themselves to believe that the proof is in the pudding blackhat. But what do you I don’t know? What do you say to the statement like? Well, it’s not true, like I know for a fact, because a lot of the because you could take in, like you notice, like a lot of the influencers, there were artists they blow it like look.

Narthex technically was an influencer troll. That’s why he does the things he does this. It is, you know, and you master and you put things out on certain platforms. It’s going to blow up and they’re really take templates. It there’s. No, I mean, even if you are not talented, you can get a writer and you can go into the development phase and get a dope beat and it can go. You know it’s just because anything can be created nowadays, but then a lot of them were really passionate about music.

So if you’re passionate about it, it’s nothing you can. They can do it, you know, and they got some good stuff in the streams in there I mean I have an influencer that I work with Lovato like he was weighing and freaking Philippines doing. He was on a YouTube stage exposed to event in a in Asia. Like from a song like, it’s crazy, got verified and blowing up as an artist and with no label. None of that just management.

Do you think so, obviously he’s moving a lot of people might not know him right, but do you think that maybe they might kill a lot of artists before they even get started by trying to see that type of popularity and for approval that you don’t really Have to have like, oh this art, what the guy you’re talking about! Oh he’s killing it and what he’s doing – and he there’s more growth to happen, but another artist might say: oh well, this is him a little baby, alright and I’m trying to be a little baby – and I here – and I want to have this this traditional type Of record level proper popularity that I’ve seen well, it’s the world is so big, and if you leave that concept alone, you’ll make you’ll do well.

You look at artists like Russ. Like live, people don’t even know who he is, but he has stadiums that are packed out and he’s making money and without being like this mainstream name, he has a main street name was like Main Street in certain niches like I never really was like it’s weird, Because the world is so big a lot of artists who power like when it come from, they have a million followers and they do a show and people show up like your fan base.

As long as you focus on catering to your fan base and everything else will take off – and it’s good to be like that little baby named or like like that uh whatever the big names, are it’s good to be that? But you know sometimes if you set your own goal and you said you get what you want like you may just your goal may just perform in front of 30,000 and make you know enough money to live like a superstar and you happy and then do that.

Somehow I don’t think something want to be like, like super super stars, but if you tell us it, you really we’re at some point it’s going to come to that point. You know it’s talent will really take you to the next level. I think that’s important. This whole idea that people are still in prison by their own, like local geography, we’re in a world where you don’t have to do that. Yeah right and you have the time when you said you got people find your families, and now you can monetize it without.

Even going in overseas, if you don’t really want to, but of course then going overseas get touring checks or yeah, whatever kind of show you can do, give you’re just an influencer, but that’s it’s interesting that people are still confined to those ideas where the door is Opening yeah, but you look in the other direction: yeah yeah, okay,

Why Are So Many Indie Artists Against Marketing Themselves?

Typically a like a very common piece of advice from email.

Marketers is in your emails, like automation, sequence. When someone joins your email lists like the set of emails, they get automatically right there after the first thing you should do is first of all get them to white list, your emails, so they come through the second of all. Let them know the title of your next email or open a loop that you know that they know in their mind: okay, the next email I want to be looking out for because it has this ticket right, so they’re in stance, sheeting a behavior pattern and then Maybe before that email closes, they’re really good, get you to click the link over to a social media, just just to get you in the habit of a clicking, a link in an email from them.

So right, there they’ve said open my emails when they come in because something good is inside and clicked links in my emails. You’re already doing it and they probably give me something cool when you put that first link just to make it like a positive experience. Dopamine floods, whatever neurons, were used in that action and reinforces the pattern in your brain right there, like that’s, a common thing, is initiating behavior patterns but really to make it sound far less nefarious and complicated people do what you tell them to or ask them to Write you ask someone to do it there more likely to do it than if you never asked so ask and ask so many studies on that.

It’s like, but it’s a it’s common sense. It’s like most people are, most people want their their audience to do something that they’re unwilling to ask them to do, and it’s something like yo you’re. If you’re unwilling to ask them, why would they be willing to do it? You know why do you think that is? Why do you think so many people are afraid to ask people are too cool for fucking, school and school.

They think that, like it’s uncool to ask, they think it’s T. I mean a lot of people, think it’s uncool to market them. So a lot of people think that a lot of people have been weird preconceptions about what their brand is and they fail to look at the people they admire and ask themselves if their standard that they’re holding themselves to is exemplified in the behavior of that person. That they admire their combo because it probably isn’t it probably, is that that person they might either come up there doing a collab with you know, they’re doing a collab with converse tomorrow and they’re, going to drop it on their Instagram story and they’re going to ask You to buy they’re going to be far more forthcoming with their desires for their fan base and their promotional messages.

Then the average artist we need to ensure they don’t have this weird hang-up about, like being cool. You know yeah. I hate to use this word because it gets what you so much today, but I definitely feel like it’s toxic and to artists to have these these desires right, but then you essentially philosophically, are against doing the things that it takes to get to that. At that point, right, which is marketing and not, and it’s in fan bases as well.

I these, like, I said too, cool for school type, spaces of specific, like some parts of music or culture aren’t as against. They are, but there’s some of them that are totally against it, like I just an ad where well, that was actually one of my artists. So the article, the guy we had he he ran the ad. A lot of people were like yeah. I found this do an ad, but there was one dude that found it through the ad and talked about he loved the song, but he hated the fact that he was running ads.

What kind of you would even know about this? If I wasn’t running an ad, but you hated the fact the artist was running because he was, it was a very uh. Let’s just like anti-establishment type artists brain you know. I just think that like because there’s so many people who we look up to who have no problem like selling themselves, you know, and but when we become when we begin to think about ourselves as a brand – and I know that’s because like when I was a Kid who it was like this, I know the feeling of being like ya know when I picture might come up in my wildest imagination and night.

It doesn’t involve me having to do anything. It’s like I’m the fucking funds bro. You ever read Happy Days slide in there. I hit the jukebox and I don’t have to put a quarter in it because it just starts playing my song automatically and a leather jacket. Everything just comes to me in waves. I don’t even even ask, but it’s a brother, that’s not real life like Gary Vee is one of the more successful people that way a broad majority of people have no problem looking up to they don’t say it’s corny and he’s out there doing all these things.

That these artists think are uncool and he’s way cooler than them like most of these people who think this shit is not cool, they haven’t done anything cool with their career, yet do some cool shit and then act too cool yeah, and I can definitely say I Underst, I understand it just because of some of my younger years, as you say, I know exactly what you like and if the sad part is a lot of, it is really kind of justifying some of your own discomforts and securities to a point, as opposed to You know just doing the work, but if you think logically enough, you just realized, you know this doesn’t make sense.

Anybody that you actually like feel they’re, cool and you’ll. See that this doesn’t this rule doesn’t hold yeah go, get their social. You ever seen it you ever seen my egg apps first big special, he says yeah, I don’t know I was waiting to see which it would. You were cool you’re going to. He was like the worst champ in the world. He was like well make some money. First and then we can do all we can do all that cool, especially using Gary being an example, because nobody sells throw look at.

Will Smith look at the rock look at like all these men. Look at Kevin Hart bro, oh my god, Kevin Hart has no problem. Asking you to go check this out on Instagram or go buy this or go see his new movie. None of these people have a problem with it and they’re, not cool. Well. How do you like to be fair on the other side, all right, how do you can? How do you get yourself seen? Well, how do you communicate and really give them a text to your brand without feeling like you’re, you’re begging me? I don’t know, maybe that’s what some people are trying to avoid.

I think that try to worry and devise you know bad bad sales. People feel like they’re, begging, good sales. People know that they’re selling, so, like you know, if you’re bad sales person, like you know, there’s training for that, like can become better catchy, like I don’t know like it’s just crazy. That is crazy. This is crazy that, like these, there are like there’s parts of the culture that respect it.

There’s parts of the culture that respect salesmanship hustle. You know what I mean and know how to do all that, but but yeah I mean I just feel like. I miss feeling a lot of people feel like maybe like insecure about asking people for like asking people to take the action that they actually wanted them to take. You know I get it man, I think like to me when it comes to cells. One thing I always resort back to it.

I can’t remember the first person I heard say, but it’s common in salesmanship, where they just basically leave back to the fact that, like if you believe in the product, why would you not tell somebody about it? Yes, that’s what I actually just posted online

Is World Star A Rippoff? Should I Pay To Promo Music On WSHH?

Y’All can like this article jibiji hope I said that right because he acts. He talked about article platforms like world star, hip, hop and promoting sounds. Do you think paying 500 to 1000 dollars to get your article? Seen on these platforms is the way to go.

First, you have to ask yourself the obvious question: do the users of WorldStarHipHop appreciate your type of music? Think about it? Generally speaking, street music is the type of music that successful own world star hiphop you’re talking about the money, the drugs and the winning? That’s pretty much the type of music people WorldStarHipHop aren’t really going there to listen to Drake type music, unless maybe it’s Drake himself, and even then, if it’s the right type of music is really hard to receive great positive feedback because of the environment that they create.

Is so conducive to negativity when you look at so many of the posts is really about seeing something we’re seeing something crazy, saying somebody you beat up just setting up situations for people to roast on whatever the content is now, if the demographic for your type of Music is world start hip. Hop’s community prices can range from as low as 750 to 5,000 plus dollars, but if you do have 50,000 views on a article in the last 11 months now this has to be legitimate.

Then you do have the opportunity to possibly get on world star hip hop for free now they say they check rigorously. They can tell you better, have legitimate comments. There needs to not be any kind of big name on your project. Hood have boosted the views they want to make sure that you are the star that other people are looking for and they made this null in a while ago. So I’m not completely sure this stance completely.

They might have upped the amount of views that are necessary to get on for free, so you would have to email world star for that yourself miss now. If you do decide to pay to get a article posting on world star hip hop, I suggest that you wait until you have multiple projects released, or at least some kind of catalogue of content that what people actually mess with you in your article and they decide To check to see more about you, you actually have some more for them to check out.

Remember having somebody’s attention is a gift so that moment that you finally get their attention. If they decide they like what you got going on, I wanted to look deeper into you as an artist. You better have something for them to galvanize and consume so that you can keep their attention for a good period of time. They can really become a fan of you as an artist. If that one article is all you got, then good luck getting that attention again, you don’t want to have to pay $ 750,000 just to get somebody’s attention every single time.

Another thing is, I suggest you promote a song, a world star that it’s already getting traction by itself. If you already have a project or you just have a single out that has been moving by itself has been doing better than your other tracks. Make a article on that one and promote that article on worldstar. You want to put all your efforts behind something that is showing promise, especially when you talk about putting that money bond.

Also, within your music article figure out ways to promote other songs of yours, whether that might be showing links to your social media for doing the preview of one of your other songs at the end, maybe a little snippet into the next music article. Just remember once again: you want to maximize this attention that you have when you have it, especially when you’re paying for it. I know I’m drilling down on that point, but it’s really how I operate.

Personally, I got money, but I don’t got no money to waste and, while we’re on this subject, we might as well talk about the most popular, well-known worldstar campaign, which was by chaotic what he did was basically the very first worldstar takeover. Not only did he pay to get a song on worldstar, he actually got almost the entire personal page. Really, like the first three roles, he basically made each individual track of his project, a cover for his mixtape, and then he had all of those tracks posted on worldstar.

This goes back to that concept of being remarkable that I talked about recently. If you haven’t seen that article is really the concept of making sure your marketing and your product is something worth talking about the fact he took up so much room and it was showing so many of his articles in a row and made people. Think of who is this guy? How much did this do pay to get on his face? Look at all these articles, this guy’s ass and, at the very least, is going to make people click, because now they wonder who caotic is there’s a article, some djay small eyes, if I’m talking about it, I’ll put it in the link.

Description below point is, if you can think of a creative approach for yourself. You want to do that not only when you market on worldstar, but when you market anywhere, because it makes your money or your efforts go farther, and once you get other people talking about it, then seeing it is one thing but then actually talking about that junk. It’s a whole nother ballgame, so it’s we’re all starting to pop a ripoff, oh and really say that, but will it give you the best return on your investment? Well, I would say that either in here’s.

Why well start if I really exist, as my eyelid Nuggets own, it’s really a glorified blog, doesn’t really have any algorithms or ranking systems that truly automate and ensure that people get to see the best content, which means when things get posted, it’s pretty much a lot More chronological than ranking systems, so what your content is up is being moved further and further back if it was on a YouTube or something like that, it’s going to really work to help the users, whoever those users are best fit for your content.

To ultimately find your content, especially as you get more likes and get more views, you’ll constantly be rising up in rankings. Let me stop and answer this because I forgot to do at the beginning a perfect example of this island. I’m talking about is, if you look at a few of these articles, I’ll flash some up on the screen. You’ll see that there are a lot of cases where there are a lot more views on world star than they are on the YouTube, however, they’re providing the youtube link within world star.

It doesn’t matter if you’re reading on YouTube world star or whatever website. If the YouTube article is there, you too will be recording your views. So how does the world star show so many more views than YouTube? One possible theory is a lot of haters exist on world star natives, like the ones of the articles and clowning on people in the comments and stuff like that. Probably a lot of them are reading the comments before they even read the article.

I know a lot of people do that on YouTube, and this is just me skimming through the articles, but it seems like the only time that the actual article on YouTube has far more abused and on a world. Star is when there were big stars involved. Who were probably getting their views from somewhere else, so the world star, probably just put it on themselves for free to see what the comments will be like, but back to the point with going on, it seems to be a real gap between actually getting views from Your page on worldstar and they’re actually translating to legitimate views on youtube.

So if worlds start offering a paid way to get on their YouTube page, I think there will be a lot more valuable for the up-and-coming rapper personally, but I’m not exactly sure that they do. That you’d have to ask them directly and see what they say as far as I can see, doesn’t look like it, but they’re capitalist. So if you got a lot of money, I’m pretty sure they willing to make a little budge. But if you look on their page, everybody up, there is pretty much well-known and there seems to be a much higher standard for getting on their YouTube.

Page then big getting on the world started by website. So what could be an alternative, an even better option and getting on worldstar? Well one? You have just actually posting your music through influencers, but everybody knows a lot about influencers. Am I going to get deep into that? A lot of people have trouble getting in contact with them. I’m going to come up with something as far as a document at a later time to provide for you guys to help you guys out with that, but the other option is using YouTube blogs, like the other platform that your bigger acts about promoting sounds: there’s trap Nations there’s so many YouTube pages out there, where they’re, basically just posting other people’s music – a lot of time, it’s popular artists, but they also do sell spots to up-and-coming artists who are willing to pay.

Of course, it’s always going to be up to you to analyze whether or not their following is best suit for your type of music, but at the end of the day, you’re automatically being embedded and inserted into the YouTube, algorithm and ranking system. On top of that, their subscribers are going to get a notification when your articles posted – because you know that’s how YouTube works, is it completely work? The money invested? The answer to that is: really.

There is becoming more and more more difficult, particularly for only a single payment of getting one article posted up there, kanai’s just added 15 seconds at the beginning and then into the article yeah. I could’ve, but I think it’s a lot more important for you guys to have a perspective on how to think about these type of deals, so you can think about the various situations that pop up for your particular situation yourself.

That’s it y’all know what to do. He did subscribe.
