Looking for a few free music marketing tips, are you?
I’m glad to see that, because there’s nothing quite as crucial to a musician’s success than marketing.
How does a musician stand out from the crowd, cut through the noise, and separate themselves from the competition?
In one word, marketing.
Branding yourself, targeting an audience, getting your music out into the world, and measuring your promotional efforts so you can streamline and improve upon your strategies as you go.
The measuring part is often forgotten, but is extremely important. If you can’t track what you’re doing, how will you ever know what’s working, and how will you ever tailor your efforts towards what is getting you the most exposure?
If you can measure your marketing, you can cut off what isn’t working, and do more of what is working.
Not a revolutionary idea by any means, just one that doesn’t get as much coverage as it should.
Look, what works for you doesn’t always work for others, and vice versa. I don’t know why that is, but if you’re serious about this marketing business, you better be prepared to try a lot of different things and even fail at times.
My new eBook, 11 Free Music Marketing Tips for Musicians covers all this and a lot more.
I’ll tell you what; I’ll share these 11 tips with you right now, but I guarantee that you’re going to get more out of them if you download the eBook + audio guide (download button is at the bottom of this post; and yes, you can grab this resource for free if you so choose).
The 11 tips are:
