It’s easier than ever to build a music empire in the 21st-century. You want to be a musician and you need to concentrate on your craft. But you must also get your music in the ears of your fans.
Social media’s reach is crucial. Social media is a powerful marketing tool that you can use to get your music video in front of millions of people with just a few clicks.
However, sharing a video is not enough. Your next hit video will be promoted by creating a brand and building buzz. Then, follow up with your fans.
Start By Building Your Brand
You need fans to create buzz. You need to create buzz by creating a brand, a name, or something that fans can follow. Make sure you:
Be consistent: Use the exact same images, logos, etc. All social media platforms
Professional photos are a must.
Pay attention to your clothing, jewelry, and vibe. Your brand’s “look” is all about your clothing, jewelry, and style.
These little details are all part of an artist’s identity and image. Fans should be able to see a piece of content, and instantly know who created it.
Develop Your Content
Creating amazing music is only one part of a successful music career. You don’t have to make music videos. There are many other video content options that you can create and publish to increase your fan base and build your business.
Documentary (Behind The Scenes)
A peek behind the scenes can help you build a loyal fan base. People love reality TV, and they would love to see the process behind the music (and all the snafus)!
It is a great way to increase your content quality and give your fans more of the things they desire.
Educational (Teaching Skills)
Learning from idols is something that people love, and creating educational videos can be a great way of building fan loyalty. It doesn’t matter if you have a unique skill, an unusual talent, or something you are proud of, you can educate your followers by making short videos. This will help you to increase your fan base.
You may not wish to record music for other videos if you are making music your full-time occupation. You can save money and time by using music that is royalty-free in the background, find a sound that matches yours.
It’s a great way to show your support by sharing educational videos for free. You can be sure they will reciprocate by sharing and resharing all of your videos.
Actual Music Videos (Entertainment)
This is the best thing about what you have worked for. Creating your music brings your passion to life and keeps your fans entertained. The icing on top is having fun with choreography or being a bit sexy.
Marketing Your Music Video
Next, share your finished video on all platforms. Just kidding. This is social media marketing for beginners. It’s easy to get your music video online and create excitement about every aspect of your release.
Instead of just posting the final video online, tease your viewers a little. Hollywood is a master at teaser trailers, which are released well in advance of the scheduled release date.
- Create a buzz with your fans
- Tease a date
- Release teaser video
- Release the full video
- Get fan feedback
- Reshare, Rinse, and Repeat
Make Use Of Social Media Ad Programs
It is easy to get lost among all the noise and make it difficult to stand out from the crowd. If your track doesn’t get in front of your audience, it is useless.
Targeted social media ads can help you find your audience faster. By placing your targeted ads in front of viewers with specific musical preferences, you can convert them into fans.
Stay True To The Music
You must be authentic as you share your music and connect with your fans. Also, don’t forget to follow your passion as you go along the way.
