It’s no earth-shattering news that the internet has changed the music industry for good. Technologies like file sharing, streaming, social media and eCommerce are giving artists more opportunities to expose their music to larger audiences and increase their fan base. The downside of having so many options is that choosing the best ways to promote your music online can be challenging.

So, to help you make good choices, we put together a list of the 10 most popular and most effective online hangouts you should join to get the word out about your tunes. Here are 10 ways to promote your music online:

  1. Create your Music Website with Wix Music
  2. Promote your Shows on Bandsintown & Songkick
  3. Get your own YouTube Channel
  4. Host your Music on Apple Music / iTunes
  5. Add your Music to Last.fm
  6. Familiarize yourself with Reddit Music
  7. Upload your music to Spotify
  8. Use Hashtags on Twitter (@TwitterMusic)
  9. Find Music Blogs
  10. Spread your Music with Dozmia

01. Create your Music Website with Wix Music

When it comes to promoting your music online, Wix Music doesn’t skip a beat. An all encompassing online marketing solution, Wix Music has you covered with all the tools you need to promote, sell and distribute your music online. Why do we love Wix Music so much? Here are some of our favorite liner notes:

  • Sell your music 100% commission-free, directly from your website. Easy music sales, means more money in your pocket.
  • Spread your music to over 120 of the most popular music channels on the internet, without leaving your Wix account. Distribute your tunes to top online stores and streaming services like iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Rdio and more (distribution is a premium feature).
  • Wanna push your gigs? No problem! Wix Music offers seamless integrations with BandsInTown or Songkick so you can promote your shows and sell tickets directly from your website.
  • Sell your merch by adding an online store to your website.
  • Include industry essentials like an EPK (electronic press kit) in your Wix Music site. This password protected page is the easiest way to give labels, press and other industry heavy-weights the most pivotal info about your band.
  • Beautiful templates that come ready-made with everything you need for a professional looking website. Did we mention that they’re totally customizable too?

02. Promote your Shows on BandsintownSongkick

One of the main reasons you got into music in the first place was to play in front of a crowd. Help ensure that your next show is played to a packed house by promoting your shows on ticket purchasing channels like Bandsintown and Songkick. With location based targeting, Bandsintown lets site viewers discover the hottest shows in their hood.

As an added bonus, connecting your Bandsintown or Songkick accounts to your Wix Music site automatically updates any new tour dates and allows ticket purchasing on your website without lifting a finger.

03. Get your own YouTube Channel

Artists that you’ve probably never heard of… like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Karmin (Wix artists!) all have one thing in common: they were all discovered on YouTube. If you’re itching to get your music to the masses, you better believe that you need a YouTube channel to get you started.

04. Host your Music on Apple Music / iTunes

The default music service for all Apple products, Apple Music & iTunes are widely regarded for hosting the largest online music library in the world. The new Apple Music service goes one step beyond being the online home for your digital music collection – they want to help users discover new tunes based on what they’re already listening to. Could that be your band?

05. Add your Music to Last.fm

Last.fm is one of the easiest ways for new fans to make your music their latest obsession. Add your music to Last.fm, and they’ll put you on playlists with bands that your fans already love (making you extra cool by association).

Did we mention that if you’re part of Wix Music’s distribution offering, any music that you upload onto your site will automatically be spread across Last.fm too? Talk about smart online radio streaming.

06. Familiarize yourself with Reddit Music

The homepage of the underground, Reddit is arguably the biggest thing on the internet.  You may not know this, but many of the viral things you see online made it to Reddit first, and that’s why musicians need to familiarize themselves with the Reddit Music thread. The grassroots-style community for content sharing allows musicians to get a genuine feel for how their music is being perceived by audiences, but be careful, the hardcore users can be harsh on noobs. Just be respectful and authentic and you’ll make it just fine.

07. Upload your music to Spotify

One of the biggest mobile and desktop apps in the world, Spotify takes the listening experience to a whole new level. Spotify has almost every recorded artist in their libraries, so you would absolutely want to be there too. With their super-amazing Discover tool for finding new artists, your channel might get connected with bigger names that play similar music.

08. Use Hashtags on Twitter (@TwitterMusic)

The front page of all things breaking, Twitter’s the perfect place for music fans to find their next favorite band. Give them the opportunity to find you first by using popular hashtags like #music, #rap, #jazz or the music style of your choice when tweeting out new tunes. Also, keep an eye out for hot music hashtags like #MusicMonday and #NewMusicFriday when operating your band’s twitter account for added exposure.

09. Find Music Blogs

Music blogs long ago surpassed magazines like Rolling Stone as the authorities on the best of what’s next in the music world. That means that getting a popular music blogger to post your latest music, hype your next show or even review your album will earn you some serious street cred, and some genuine new fans. Many bloggers have their email addresses or social channels listed on their posts, so try reaching out to them with a short intro and a link to one of your songs. Start by researching popular music blogs in your area and send the bloggers your EPK with a good professional email intro; a post on a blog in your town or city can help you generate a devoted local fanbase. The best blog for your music will differ from genre to genre, but Pitchfork, Stereogum, DatPiff and The A.V. Club are some of our favorites from the ‘music blog big league.’

10. Spread your Music with Dozmia

For many people, the definition of a nightmare scenario is a commute without music. Music and mobile are a combo as old as the internet itself; so needless to say, it’s just as important to spread your music on mobile apps, as it is on popular websites. Similarly to sites we noted above, the mobile app Dozmia work by recommending new music based songs and artists that users already like. But why Dozmia? Being a new player on the scene, musicians have the added advantage of getting in on the action early by utilizing Dozmia’s targetting music pairings in a not-yet oversaturated music space.

Police Shoot, Kill Aspiring Rap Artist Sleeping In Car. Justified? Excessive? — The Truth About Guns

The mainstream media says six Vallejo, California police officers shot aspiring rap artist Willie McCoy as he slept in his car. McCoy had passed out with a stolen gun in his lap in a Taco Bell drive-through. The bigger question for many in the community, now that police have released bodycam video from a number of officers: Did the police use excessive force?

Leave it to the Brits to react with shock and horror to the sensational story. From the UK Daily Mail:ADVERTISING

Shocking police footage shows the moment an aspiring rapper was shot dead by several officers who fired at him multiple times as he was apparently sleeping in the drive-thru of a Taco Bell in California.

Vallejo police released nearly 30 minutes of footage on Friday showing the shooting death of Willie McCoy, 21.

The 30-minute video begins with an explanation of the Vallejo police department’s version of events on the night of February 9 when they found McCoy slumped in the driver’s seat of Taco Bell parking lot with a gun in his lap around 10.30pm.

As they were investigating, police said that McCoy suddenly made a movement towards the gun in his lap.

And there you have it. Mr. McCoy failed to follow repeated police directives to raise his hands. Instead, he reached down to his lap where a handgun with an extended magazine rested.

The Daily Mail has plenty of company in sensationalizing this tragic story.

How many of you know how to promote your own music?

A lot of people in the music industry miss one key thing… promotion.

Without promotion your music has no reach, or fans to continue telling more friends about you and what you. You have to understand, any promotion right now is considered good promotion. Depending on your image though, that could end up as something completely irrelevant.. My name’s Patrick Nelson, aka Mute Davinci, me and my homie Matt Movin’ run a label called RTA (Round Table Affiliation). We started a few months ago and have already reached a level that most people don’t. I’m here to tell some of y’all how to get past this point. Also, if you’re just jumping in the game use this as a guide to promoting yourself too. I feel like some of y’all forget about social media promotion, not just Instagram, or Facebook. What I’m saying is, Twitter, YouTube, Google Panels, Google Ads, Facebook, Instagram, Blogs, Articles, and whatever other places i’m skipping real fast. For some help with managing all of them at one time, just go to Hootsuite. Or you can go to my Fiverr page http://www.fiverr.com/patrickn423. Also, you have websites with like for like setups like:

There’s even a music promotion machine to boost you insanely!

You can also create blog posts, like this one to bring traffic to your music and your social media pages. Who knows, one day you may be able to run ad campaigns and make money off those same posts. Going to places like shoutcart are a good opportunity for your business as well, plus you can promote yourself. You can make more money for promotion packages or you can buy those on the site. You’re already on Instagram all day, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to market it, would it? Go over there today, and shout some people out for 24hrs and you’re good. Look, I’m going to tell you guys a secret. A lot of people are going to slick be mad that I told you. All I’m going to say is go put 100 bot followers on your Instagram and go look at the bots following. I guarantee that 50% of your favorite celebrities and friends are in that pool. You can probably get those followers for like 80 cents every thousand at a place like justanotherpanel or followiz too. You can get YouTube views, Twitter followers, Website hits, and better on there. Long story short, you can cap your stuff to an extent, but until you put in the groundwork and out of pocket expense you’re stuck. I know people that have run up 3000 plus dollars on those panels and gotten nowhere. I know people who spent 10 dollars and gotten everywhere. It’s what you do and how you market yourself that make all of these tools relevant unless you just go buy some bots. Would you rather have 100 fans and 30,000 bots or 1,000 fans and no bots though? I’d rather have 1,000 friends because they have 1,000 friends and word of mouth is the most influential marketing tool available today! The three main things you need when you start to market your music are a distribution platform, a website, a general knowledge of social media, and your brain. Other than that, and the bots like everyone on social media uses you shouldn’t need too much else. If you just want numbers. Actually, to get a real following, you need a music video, a good publisher, a website, a producer, an engineer, some way to keep yourself financially stable, knowledge, and time. You can literally get all of those things I just mentioned with helpful tools that you can look up on Youtube and Google. Hootsuite, telegram music group pods, likeforlike, addmefast, use it at the same time, a site called Fiverr, and yourself plus the team you have with you, yeah. That’s how you get somewhere. Basically, what I’m trying to say here is the more bots and fake things you put on your profile could slow you down. Instagram, which should be your number one marketing tool could actually hurt your business if you don’t account for everything they look for. Spotify, Youtube, iTunes, and all of those sites are big enough sites to know when things like that are happening too. If you want a doorway into one of the biggest industries in the world, you have to be smart about that. Literally, anyone could go buy 1,000,000 followers. Tons of celebs actually do, but, What does that do to the normal people that really have to end up paying 5,000 dollars for a worldstar feature? They haven’t made a dime at that point creatively or monetarily. Plus, It cuts them out and creates a fake business model. I’m js if you’re a rapper and you be photoshopping pictures of yourself on the beach when you supposed to be trappin your ass off out here, stop that shit! You cappin! Real music promotion means having real music, feelable music, and a legitimate knowledge to how this game works.
