How To Market Your Music Video
If you’re a musician, you know that creating your masterpiece will take days, weeks, or even months to perfect to your liking. You will have gone through several drafts, reworks, may have even scrapped works in progress, but…its finally ready. However, without an established fanbase, or even if you want to expand your current one…how do you market your music to a large amount of people?
First of all, social media is an invaluable key for putting your music out there. Twitter can help people find your music through the use of hashtags, retweets from others who like your work, and being able to mention specific artists that may also further promote your work. Facebook allows you to easily promote a specific page you create for your brand, and is very user friendly in allowing a page to contain links to other social media, or to customise each post to your liking.
There are also plenty of other social media that you can use, such as Instagram for more personal posts, linkedin for reaching out to specific people you wish to advertise to, and also specific music sites such as reverbnation, spotify and soundcloud are fantastic music sites that millions of people use each day.
