How To Gain Exposure For Your Music

Updated on April 11, 2017

Getting Music Exposure

So, I know that new artists, who actually work hard everyday, put a lot of money and time out to postings and performances, yet they cannot get any exposure. However, there's a few steps you may or may not have missed. What I am going to tell you, are a few key options, in order to gain more exposure towards your new EP/Single.

Now, you came here for some methods and I have a few for you! We all know that in order to really get seen is to spend a bit of cash, in order to get your name out there. I won't lie to you, not everything I am going to tell you is free! However, I'm going to give you ideas in which gives you the option of little to no money at all.

STEP 1: CRITICAL OPINIONS

Sometimes you will have to suck it up, and hear a bit of advice of how your music could be improved before sending it anywhere. The very first people you should ask is your friends and family. They will give you their most honest opinions and you cannot get mad, if they tell you to change a few things. It's just an opinion. Give it try! Because who knows, it may or may not help you out a hell of a lot. Some people will tell you to check your writing. Believe it or not, people listen to your words in your songs, to understand the true meaning behind it. (Some do not). However, to bring about durability and effort, you should maybe go over your lyrics. Sometimes people won't take you seriously if your words are crappy.

STEP 2: HAVE A FEW TRACKS READY

It is best to have a few tracks ready, whenever someone MAY ask for a sample or two of your skills. Nothing is promising they will like your style, but there are always other people willing to listen and become quite interested in what you got. Also you may need them for reference, sometimes to be sure you don't repeat the same thing over and over again. These are the types of mistakes artists make. Every song they make, sounds the same.

STEP 3: CREATE A TWITTER/FACEBOOK/TUMBLR

Obviously, social media is always the best bet when it comes to exposure. There are thousands of people lurking on Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr, looking for talent! Remember though, you DO have a bunch of competition, but don't give up because of that. That shows you have the potential to be an artist if you actually put the effort to bypass all other talent associated on these big sites.

STEP 4: ADVERTISEMENT


Here is where money comes in. In order to advertise your music or your Twitter/Facebook pages, you will have to put in a certain amount of money for a certain amount of time, to a certain audience. You may choose any amount you wish towards advertising your music. Just don't go overboard. If you're not confident enough towards your sound, don't rush it. Keep practicing. There is no rush to get from point A to point B, that is how you screw yourself up.

STEP 5: KEEP PERFORMING/TOURS

Now, it takes more than performing at your local coffee shop to grow your fan base. In fact, you should try going out of your comfort zone. Visit some close by cities, and perform for upcoming events. You may run into someone who would like you to come back again every year if they appreciate your sound. Never underestimate touring and big performances. It may just be your big break!


DO YOU HAVE ANYMORE IDEAS? SHARE IT WITH US BELOW!

The best answer to this is sharing is caring! From social media to performing live in different events! Don't be afraid to go out of your way to get well known. Even in your city!

There is HARSH LANGUAGE!
