Marketing your own music can be challenging, and at some times, it can even feel downright impossible. However, there are ways in which you can market your music and there are some great tools out there to help you get the word out! Social media is one of these fantastic tools and it can help you to grow your listeners and get your music heard by an audience who may have never heard it otherwise. So, why should social media be your best friend when you are marketing your own music?
It Can Help You to Make More Friends
The best kind of best friend is the one who introduces you to new, interesting people, broadening your social circles. This is something that social media is great at, introducing you to new people who may want to listen to your music or even other musicians who may have some great tips for you or are even able to help you network.
Nobody likes a friend who is always asking you to pay for things! Thankfully, social media is usually free to use unless you want to start investing in adverts. This is a great way to save money on marketing costs as you are able to do it yourself without spending a penny.
It’s Already Popular
Social media is like that friend that can get along with anyone. They usually have lots of friends, and they can be pretty valuable when it comes to meeting new people. Social media is hugely popular, in fact, there are 2 billion monthly users on Facebook. That means that there are 2 billion people that you could be reaching out to if you start using social media to market your music.
It Doesn’t Ask for Much
Thankfully, you don’t have to be an expert to use social media. Of course, it can be helpful to know a little about how best to use it, but social media is happy to be friends with anyone! You can often pick things up as you go along, but there are always plenty of articles and online resources to help you.
