Promoting your music videos may still apply some marketing methods that you haven’t imagined before, particularly if you’re a new kid on the block. Some music companies will look for artists who already have some communities for fans, and proven to have good recording CDs. While you might have both of them, then you still have to go through several processes in promoting your product with the best way and the most efficient method. Being talented is not enough, as you need to stand above the crowd. Check out these tips for your effective and efficient music video promotion.
#1 Promoting Locally
This is important because local fans will give the best support than others who might live outside the city or province that you permanently dwell. Promote your music videos through your social media marketing accounts and tag your friends, at first. Then, you can join several local communities whose passion is music. It should be done regularly, and check the progress every week. Though you can’t go too slow, you can do it progressively.
#2 Promoting Consistently
Without a doubt, word of mouth promotion never fails. Stay active among ‘real people’ instead of merely depending on social media marketing. Make them interested, and you can give your CD’s samples. Keep in mind your image is important. Don’t get trapped with the fame that welcomes you. Stay humble, and people will notice that you are really talented.
#3. Promoting Actively
Being consistent and active is a little bit different. Actively promoting your music videos means that you shouldn’t wait for launching innovative ways of introducing your videos broadly, in a very vigorous way. The internet has offered lots of media that enable you to use them all. Yet, the competition is too tight that you can’t just count on promoting your music videos in a less dynamic way. Learn to create a website that can reach as many readers as you can. In this case, you still need your social media. Provide content, whether it is about your music videos or other topics that relate to your albums. Prepare quality content with relevant and consistent keywords.
#4. Promoting Creatively
This is one of the hardest steps that you should go through, no matter what. Without any creativity, no artist will stand out from the crowd. Keep in mind that you need to stand out in a positive way. You may be very well known for a bad reputation, but it won’t last long. Don’t get trapped with the fast gaining popularity that may not ensure your long-lasting popularity. Make sure you know lots of online music directories, artists communities, music blogs. Then, you can create backlinks on their websites to increase your search rating. Don’t forget your fan base. Collect your fans’ emails and you can send them your music videos as they can share with others. This is the best way, instead of sending spam emails.
