The music industry carries people from different walks of life but with one goal of providing entertainment to their fans. Depending on who you are as a musician and the resources you have, there are dozens of ways you can promote your music and grow a dependable fanbase. Here are some of those ways:
Target the Right Audience
Your music is not oxygen; not everyone will like it. This is one reality you should be aware of, at least. After all, every music fan has their own taste. So, you will want to present your music before a particular audience that will like it. For instance, don’t expect to sell your reggae music to fans who eat and live blues music. It will not work for you at all, since your music will not resonate with this clique of fans.
From time immemorial, music plagiarism has never been popular with fans. Why? Because they want to hear a new thing that resonates with their feelings every time they listen to a newly released piece of music. One way to be original as a musician is to write your own music- don’t rely on producers or songwriters all the time. Some of them are just after money, and they can sell to you the same piece -but with a slight alteration- they already sold to someone else.
Treat Your Fans to Special Events
As a musician, your fans are the most important people in your life, since they see to it that your fanbase stays alive, on top helping promote your music. They need to feel that you value and care for them, and one way to ensure this is to hold special events for them. You can hold meet-and-greets as a sign of appreciation, or you can invite them for a free lunch event, if you can, that is.
