Promotion is the key to success. Without music video promotion, where would all these musicians have all the views and fans they have now? Sometimes promoting can be difficult, so here are a few simple steps you can get started with.
We will take a look.
1. Be active in the YouTube community.
One of the easiest ways to get your name out there is to get more involved on YouTube. Subscribing and commenting on other channels is a great way to promote yourself.
However, you must remember not to spam, as it can ruin your reputation. Leaving valuable comments on someone’s video and sharing a bit of yourself can get someone else to watch your channel or music video.
2. Go live on Periscope, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.
If you don’t have a fanbase yet, that’s fine. Start by promoting your music video to your family and friends, whether it’s on Facebook Live, Instagram, or Snapchat. You can also create a hashtag that they can use afterwards. By doing this you are exposing them to your music and then they could just share it or tell their friends about it using that hashtag.
3. Tease your fans about upcoming projects.
Keeping your fans and friends up to date with your music is important for many reasons. First, they’ll know what’s going on with you and where you are in your career. Second, you want them to be excited about your music. Teasing them and letting them know you have something coming up can turn them on.
There are many steps you can take to promote your music, but these three simple things will help you get off to a good start. Being active on YouTube, interacting with fans, and uploading are just some of the easiest things you can do to promote your music.
