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.

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.

Until next time, guys here are some more articles,

How Long Should Music Promotion Be?

Com, because I saw it myself and, as a matter of fact, this article right here was inspired by a conversation I had in brandman network.Com a Few days ago, hey it was just a few people. It was like five artists and, like a manager, was chopping it up having a conversation right and this artist expressed that she didn’t like the fact that she could drop something and then just like a week or so later, people forget about it completely.

I don’t even know it existed or they’re just done. They moved on to the next thing and then I made me ask her: how long do you promo? I just thought about. Okay, how long do you push your stuff and then you know she answered and then I started to hear other people talk, and I really came to the conclusion that you know what a lot of people that I hear they don’t push. They don’t do their campaign as long enough, so how long enough is a good campaign? How long should you be working to push us your stuff? Well I’ll tell you this me personally, a lot of things, whether it’s my festivals, when I first started that when I was a little certain artists, just a lot of things, I do like three or four months, three or four months I’ll, just keep it at that Straight simple, three to four months, is how long I push things when I’m pushing out of security out of obscurity, and that means unknown to known and getting people to convert right, unknown to known and getting to people to version each of those are phases.

So you have to keep pushing because when people see something one time, that’s probably not the time that they’re really going to soak it in or check it out. I see articles by artists. They drop articles that I know, and I actually like that. I don’t even read the first time I see them when I’m like scrolling through YouTube’s, and things like that cuz. I might be on for a different reason. So you have to keep that in mind because alright, so I’m going to break a few things out.

This articles off the fly, but I want to make sure you get everything you can at least from this article in terms of doing it for three months, all right. First, the way I even learned this was like a harsh personal experience, probably like seven years ago. Now I don’t know but um I did a panel. I actually talked about this a blog, but I did a panel so I’ll keep it short. Three people who want to panel three CEOs were on the panel and yeah.

Four people showed up to the event three people in the panel and, like some legit CEOs were on the panel on within in tech industry, mostly so I’m music, but four people showed up three of those people that showed up. Quote-Unquote was me and two people who are helping me me and two people that were helping me that third one was a, I mean the fourth one was a guy will just randomly walking by. I was like yo.

What’s going on, oh snap, this is dope. I’m going to get in so why was that for me? First of all, I didn’t put enough effort into marketing that particular event. This is where I go by the 10x rule that Grant Cardone talks about so much. So it’s a great book or just hearing him talk about that concept. For y’all we don’t know, but the rule is basically most of the things like it’s not this whole inspirational thing.

Yeah you want to 10x your life, that’s cool, but the the the part that I love it. The meat of it is most of the things that you’re trying to achieve are going to likely take 10x. The effort that you think it’s going to take. Why? Because you actually don’t know how much effort is going to take so you’re planning and say I’m going to do this this and this, but you haven’t done it before so you don’t know how the effort that it actually takes all right, so kind of plan.

For that and the reason that event you know I had some successful events a couple of days before in a couple days afterwards, which was a second lesson for me personally, but because I did have some except successful events. I was actually surprised to have like one of my first huge, huge failures, but part of that was because of resources right trying. That’s what I talked about focusing in on, where you want to put people’s attention to and where I learned that personally, because I had 300 people show up to this one thing: hey 120 people show up to this other thing, and then I had four people show Up to this other thing that I would have preferred most of the people show up to that like for real for real, so, but I didn’t have the resources to market that, like, oh, okay, I didn’t have the resources to market all three well right, so you Have to be able to understand the resources that you have at the moment to to you know, determine what you’re going to direct people’s attention to that’s another thing now, when we talk about this three months situation, everybody doesn’t have the resources to do it three months, Because we need the consistent, real legitimate push happening for three months.

So if you cannot start with like three months – and this is just this is just a number of course – it will vary. I so don’t start saying hey. I did this in one month and got these results, and I did it took me really six months. Of course results may vary, but three months is really a good time if you can start thinking and planning. But if you cannot do three months, whatever you have going on right now, I mean typically going to week pushes then you need to start thinking about.

How do I do three and four week pushes all right and now let me see if I could try to extend it to two months and then continue to grow your plan. That way, because maybe you can’t wait till you have a lot of money every single time like maybe only you’re going to take you’ll only be able to do it like once a year. If that’s your situation, I don’t know what the situation is, but what I can say if a lot of artists will find themselves in better positions a lot of times, especially when you’re, like no connections you’re in your room.

You’re is really just you. You’ll find yourself in a better position. Is if you take time you strategize you build up your resources, you get your catalog, you get you all your promo together, you get like all the money. You know you save a lot of money for the budget right, you don’t just! Oh I’m going to throw out $ 50 here and throw out $ 50 here, like that. That’s cool with your testing. But when we’re talking about your campaign and trying to build to actually make sure things get like traction, then you’re better off saving all that money and then being intentional about where you spend it.

To make sure you can add that to the push to the push to the push and you keep pushing that track throughout your campaign or keep pushing whatever that content is throughout your campaign and honestly, I mean regularly it’ll still do this right, so it’s not really Just a if you don’t have a resources is really the best way to go about it: okay, you’re trying to create a groundswell and a what’s the word, a buzz there.

We go a buzz it’s because all a lot of energy in a concentrated area right is going to have a greater impact. Let’s keep it at that. So please consider lifting your campaign. I don’t care. If it just means you can only do it two more weeks and usual, and maybe that’s going to make you think differently as well. It should because now you have to get creative well. What can I do to do a little bit of this or to keep things going? If I don’t have the money to bring four or maybe I need to wait an extra two months before I even drop this project because who’s waiting on the project most likely like, especially if you’re starting from nowhere right, nobody’s waiting on the project.

It’s only Hubie Nancy about getting it out. That’s why patience right is a huge thing we hear so many people talk about patience and mindset and all that stuff and patience, patience, patience. Well, it’s a real thing. If you talk about executing correctly, because this plan and extending the plan and making sure you put the right amount of effort, energy into the plan is literally that’s that’s the part where people win.

So many people have information and right read these reading these articles and things like that, but the execution is where it’s all one at the end of the day, that’s just what it is so I’ll leave this article that once again this was on the fly. I don’t want to add too much other information and random stuff, maybe we’ll get in deeper to some of that type, some of that strategy and planning in another article but uh yeah other than that.

Once again, this article is brought to you by brain man, network.Com cuz. I signed myself if you like this article, go ahead like better, maybe like in my school shared, not subscribed, you know what to do. Get-Get subscribe,
