Best Way To Promote Music On Instagram

By Promo Panda Staff

If you are an upcoming artist, you will find it hard to promote your music. You can actually promote your music for free, but the only thing that you need is Instagram account.

If you do not have an Instagram account, get one. There is a good chance that you will have a huge following.

To make it much easier for you, we have found out some best Instagram guidelines that will help you promote your music on Instagram. So here are some best Instagram guidelines.

1 post per day

There is one rule that is very simple to follow. You should post a new image or a video on Instagram at least once a day.

It's the rule of 1. You can post up to 1 picture, video, or an article every day.

This rule is very basic.

Reach your audience through direct message

Reach your audience through direct message

You should reach out to people on Instagram in a good way. You should connect with people through direct messages.

There are many ways to connect with people on Instagram. You can always use hashtags, tag them in the pictures, and even ask for a compliment.

You can also use some Instagram-specific tags for targeting certain people, as per your own marketing needs. You can also create your own tags, but I don't recommend it.

Gather photos of themselves

Many people, mostly young people, think that you should get some "skills" or some really good photographer to take your photos. But the fact is that you should just gather a couple of photos of yourself, your band, and friends.

It's easy to post a group of photos on Instagram. All you need to do is take a couple of photos of your band, of yourself, and your friends.

You can even ask your followers to send you the best photo of themselves. Don't forget to add a description to the photo.

Also add a filter to them.

Exposure on social media

There are many ways to build exposure for your Instagram account. You can share your band's updates on other platforms, like Facebook and Twitter.

You can also ask other artists to share your photos on their social media account. You can even encourage them to share your photos, but they don't have to promote your work, just share the photos of their projects.

Post up about your music

Post up about your music

You can post about your music on your Instagram account, if you want to. You can add the link to your Soundcloud or iTunes page.

You can post a link to your YouTube channel and you can even promote your music through a playlist on Spotify, if you want to. And again, all the music on Spotify is free to promote.

Use your geotag to market your music

Geotagging your photos and videos is very important. If you can geotag your photos and videos, you can actually promote your music.

Most people are using GPS services to find interesting places. This is another great way to promote your Instagram account.

So post something interesting in the location, mention your location or use the location feature in Instagram. For example, if you are in the hood, a location tag should be used to promote your music.

And if you are performing at a music festival, just tag that location. You can also add a description for the location tag.

Work on your photography skills

Just because you are not a great photographer does not mean that you cannot work on your photography skills. You can simply learn photography basics, and make some good use of your camera on Instagram.

However, it is very important that you select good hashtags. If you are using your hashtags wrongly, you will likely to lose a lot of potential followers.

Make your hashtag use case

Make your hashtag use case

You should create a purpose to your hashtag, like getting more followers or promoting your music. You can use hashtags that contain keyword related to your industry.

For example, if you are making music, use hashtags like #music or #musicartist.


Like the president, you need to keep it real in your social media presence. Never post anything negative about anyone else, never ever pretend to be someone else and make it as real as possible.

You don't have to do any of this by choice, it is out of necessity. You want your followers to know you and that you are as real as you can be.

Be thankful to all the people who follow you, it means they have genuine interest in what you have to say, so listen to their comments, see what they have to say about you and make it your own.

The more people you connect with, the bigger your following will get. The number of followers you have is extremely important and will greatly impact your Instagram presence. If you are making money from your Instagram account, it is important that you never sell a follower.

Do not get caught up in the numbers game, keep it real.
