Taking My Own Advice…
The other day, I wrote about social media and artists.
The 5th tip I wrote was this:
5) Give some out free
I just hinted at this in my last point, but it is important to at least give some of your content out there free. It’s such a great tactic, even for a no-name artist. Yes, Trent Reznor and Radiohead get a firestorm of press for it, but it is something that works for everyone. Use the file sharing tools and networks to your advantage. You can’t sell any albums or get booked at any events without demand for your music. And there is no demand for music and artists no one has even heard of. Even if you’re making music in a niche genre, you still need to reach your niche. Get some of your art out there!
Well – I’ve decided to take my own advice. Check this out. I’ll let you know how it goes.
