If you are a “Music Artist” desiring to have “Major Exposure” for your Band and Songs, but you only have little Promotions and Marketing funds as a budget to promote yourself and your music, Internet (the super highway) Promotion is the way to go.
Independent Artists can now promote and market their music through many Internet Outlets such as; Radio, Social Sites, Blogs, Communities, Web Directories, Digital Distribution and more. But if you as a band don’t have the time to promote yourself, or perhaps you just don’t know how to, then consult with a reputable company that can help you achieve your “Major Marketing Goals” at affordable Indie prices. It’s a big help in promoting “Music Online” when you can find Internet & College Radio Stations that will play your songs on the Radio.
For the “Independent Musicians and Singers”, Internet Radio is definitely a savior! Your “Original Songs” can now be heard throughout the Whole Wide World. But remember, radio is only one portion of many other outlets for the Music Artists to use, especially if their plans are to have a successful Promotions Campaign that gets Major results.
Placing yourself and your music on every site possible may sound like a tad bit too much, and for many it is. However, if you really want to see Major results with only having low budget money, then you need to write articles, upload your music to social sites, to communities, submit to web directories, blogs…find digital distribution that will place your music in Major Online Retail Stores etc… There is no excuse! The Internet has made Major Resources a lot more accessible for Music Indie Artists to grasp, and the playing field has become more of a common ground for both the Indie and the Major labels alike.
The internet is the stepping stone used now to reach Millions of possible fans, friends and music industry contacts! For example, Independent Record Label “Bell Time Records” released R&B Artist “Tamalaneh”, and took her new Cd “I Know You’re Gonna Like This” and promoted it on just about every music related website, blog, social site, community site and web directory on the internet. Anybody can do it if you’re willing to do the time consuming work it takes to get the job done.
Getting yourself promoted on a daily basis and on every music related website, blog, social site, community site and web directory on the internet is a MUST. Professionally reaching out to Internet & College Radio Stations that will potentially play your songs on the Radio; if approached correctly, is the other half of the equation. (Not just lazily sending them whatever) There are specialists that do this for a living. Shop around and do your research. You’ll find that Specialists don’t come cheap, and why should they? It’s time consuming (especially if professionally done correctly) and allot hard work and research. However, good reliable experts are still to be found and reasonable in monthly prices. Do the math. If you break their monthly fee down into days/hourly rates; it’s really not much. Most put 12-16 hours or more in a day while tolerating a very disruptive and catering schedule. The Music & Entertainment Industry is a 24 hours a day business.
Many of the business strategies mentioned in this article can be applied to your own industry of interest.
