Artists Advertise With Songstuff

As artists, we need listeners. If you are remotely ambitious, or you have a dream of being a music professional, you will need to find fans of your music. Even if you just want to grow an audience of people who like your music (a.k.a. fans) we all need to put our music in front of listeners if we hope to stand a chance of turning those listeners into fans.

Building your fan base takes hard work, creativity, intelligence, and good tools. Typically there are a lot of moving parts in a promotion campaign. That normally means a lot of time spent planning and preparing, just to get your music in front of people. Artists who don’t make the effort to find fans for their music are highly likely to be waiting a long time before they manage to build any kind of fan base, if they ever do.

Advertising is a vital tool in your music promotion toolkit. Where you can, advertising to genre specific listeners is important, but there are a number of criteria that can be used to target potential fans. For example, advertising to fans of independent music is a significant advantage for independent artists.

You may well have some of those parts in place. A few accounts set up and configured. Yet you need much more than just those parts. To do even the basics of music marketing will need something that pulls it all together. The Songstuff Indie subscription gives you that something and then some. It gives you the glue that sticks the parts and activities together arranging them into a working system. It gives you strategies going far beyond simple guerrilla tactics, taking you right to the cutting edge in terms of music marketing strategies and tactics.

You will learn the steps to grow your fanbase. You will have an overall strategy for releasing music and even better it’s largely built on a number of free resources.

The UIG gives artists some core concepts, outlines the basics of growing your fan base and gives you an overall strategy for music promotion. It also talks about automating this system to make it something the average indie can use.
