Feel you have a talent in music? You will need money to keep going, and selling your music will definitely be the primary source of your income, if you are making music full time, that is. But before you even think of sales, you must market your music, just like you would do with any other product. So, how does one do this?
The internet: The best place to start is the internet. It is accessible to billions of people around the world, and some of these individuals can quickly become your customers. As a music artist, having a website that serves as your music’s storefront is more than essential, especially at a time when everything seems to be revolving around the internet.
Besides a website, you can also market your music on several other types of online platforms, including social media. Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook form some of the most popular social media platforms today. If you have a vast following on any of these platforms, then you can rest assured your music will sell.
Use mainstream media: I must admit that mainstream media platforms, such as a TV, radio, and newspapers, are not out of date, at least for now. So, you can make use of this media to reach out to your potential music customers. Unlike social media, however, mainstream media could be a bit pricier when it comes to advertisement.
Announce concerts and other events: As a musician, you will be invited to perform at various events, and that can be an excellent chance to market your music.
