5 Tips For Promoting Your Music
October 8, 2015
Looking for opportunities to promote your music? Our music promotion services help build your exposure, but there are always a few DIY tricks and tips you can take advantage of.
1. Build Your Arsenal
Create an engaging and informative press release. Hint: try not to use too many adjectives or buzz words, these will turn off the reviewer. Things like ‘sound of the summer’ and ‘feel-good anthem of the year’ have been heard way too many times.
2. Find Your Influencers
Build a distribution list of editors and journalists you want to pitch your music to. Hint: research is key, make sure that your music fits the right outlet. While things like LinkedIn, Facebook and music forums are helpful, nothing beats good old fashioned faced-to-face networking at events.
3. Create The Hype

4. Showcase Yourself
Actively seek out live gigs and performances and this will help put your promo campaign into context. Hint: always ask if any media are going to be there and introduce yourself to them.
