Music promotion is so tough.
I say this a lot, but I don’t like being salesy or promote-y. It feels fake and I’m not good at it.
So I did some brainstorming and came up with five creative ways we musicians can get our music out into the world without feeling like a sketchy used car salesman.
In today’s music industry, it’s difficult to be an indie musician who just does one or two things.
Because musicianship is more accessible than ever, it takes someone really special to stand out from the crowd. That’s why so many DIYers do more than just write, record, and perform their songs.
Many of them start a blog — and many are very successful at it.
I hate when people tell me what to do or think.
So this post isn’t going to be an attempt at mind control. This post is meant to be suggestions for helping you succeed as a DIY musician.
Sometimes, the internet just doesn’t have the answer.
It can’t answer specific questions about your music career. The internet is now an ocean of general tips and solutions.
So what are you supposed to do? Waste time stumbling around in the dark until you figure it out?
I mean, you could do that. But that sounds miserable.
