That’s been on my mind for a minute. I want to debunk the rest strategy and the way this came about is a lot of times. I’ve just been talking to people or run into people and they’ll say something like the old man, I’m using the rest strategy, and then I would say what are you doing and basically they would say: I’m posting a song a week.
That’s the rest strategy. I don’t even want to make this long article, so I’m going to try to make this as simple as possible. I get the idea of the song a week representing the rush strategy, because that’s the easiest thing to remember, but there’s a lot of other things that just had to come into play right. You the way SoundCloud especially SoundCloud when people would say they were dropping a song a week on soundcloud.
The way SoundCloud is set up, the algorithms. Don’t really allow discovery to happen like that they just don’t. So if I create a SoundCloud tomorrow – and I just start dropping a song a week – a song a week for a whole year – I would be surprised if I had zero subscribers after a year. I don’t care how dope the music is SoundCloud, just like Spotify an apple in many ways. You really need to push people into the discovery, whether that’s through repost or you know, just getting on other playlists.
You really have to have some way that other people from the outside find out about your music. Now somebody told me that Reza mentioned in some interview, I didn’t take time to look it forward, but like he said he did some kind of collaboration of somebody and that brought in fans. Many at this point know that he had Carol Lewis as a picking agency. Eventually, there’s a lot of pieces to the come up that came to play.
I don’t know what just happened. Someone screaming going to figure that out for this article, and this all leads back to the system that I’ve spoken of before. Yes, you can have dropping a song a week, dropping content consistently a part of your plan, that’s a great part in centerpiece to your system, but you have to figure out a way to consistently bring in new people. Even it’s not having you know like an ad running everyday, like some people have done, even if it’s not getting posted on influencers pages every day or just hustling and getting in front of people whatever you still have to say, maybe just once a month or just Whenever the opportunities arise, I’m pushing people to this stuff, but it’s not just going to happen from you posting into the abyss of all the content.
That’s being dropped on the Internet. So, what’s the point of this article, you got ta figure out ways other than just dropping music again and again on soundcloud. Even when you consider the fact that rest had a lot of music on YouTube, YouTube was better for discovery and finding songs on the side and all those things so just being on that platform alone was helpful. To remember the way these platforms are set up and less than YouTube, specifically SoundCloud Spotify.
They don’t really get you any more views like that. Like Spotify has already said they have millions of songs, just all kind of content that has zero views. Zero zero listens like there’s artists out there to have their art their artwork on this platform with no listens. That’s because you have to create the push at first. You have to figure out how to get people to look at you, don’t think you’ll.
Just keep posting it’ll happen. That’s it for this article. I want to hear you some comments from you guys because I know a lot of you guys have known at least some people who are doing this or if you know somebody who is doing this just sending this article, I could go in deeper detail, but I’m Just going to speak at it at that level, if you like this article, go ahead, hit that like button, if you like it, might as well share it any of you not subscribed.
