Marketing music through snapshots? Sell music online by taking photographs? Meeting new fans with a click of the digital camera? It’s possible and actually happening RIGHT NOW.
Giving music away is part of your online music promotion sites and so is selling music. I am not just saying give all your music away and make money on the live concerts and gigs. This goes much deeper into the psychology of selling.
Without money! That is the challenge that most independent artists face. The conventional approach to selling music is that it should not be too readily available to listen to, should the incentive for listeners to actually buy albums be undermined. This has persuaded independent artists that they should limit web listeners to low-quality snippets of streaming audio.
You only need 1000 true fans to pay your bills and you have so many ways to easily talk to them and make them happy. Make it your mission to be the coolest person in their lives.
You should have a blog as well and always keep it constantly current and updated. Include an article somewhere that gets into the more personal side of your music, and highlight the story behind how everything began. It will help to establish a connection with your fans and take things to a more personal level.
Once you have established a relationship with that fan and they have received free music from you or your artist you can start to think about building an economic relationship with the fan.
You will be surprised to see how much traffic using this powerful method can bring you. Online music promotion does not have to be difficult. Using this marketing technique on a regular basis will get you more exposure for you and your music.
