This article will discuss cheap ways to promote music.

This is where you can use your phone or computer to promote your music.

If you are looking for inexpensive ways to promote music, these are the best.

The second reason for choosing these ideas is that it saves you money.

Promoting music on social media is free, but if you advertise and promote your music through your own computer or device, you do not have to pay a single dime.

Non Music Video content

The videos that you film yourself and use to promote your music are very effective in social media.

If you like to film yourself singing, playing an instrument, or whatever you are performing on, this is a good way to promote your music.

Most likely you are performing on YouTube or your computer, so why not do it in front of an audience?

The other benefit is that by using your phone or a webcam you can keep you from having to buy your own video camera.

Facebook Ads

Facebook Ads

Using Facebook ads, you can advertise your music to your friends. When you are promoting music on Facebook, you have the advantage of connecting with your audience directly.

This is very convenient because you can directly ask for people to listen to your music, or ask for them to share it on their social media accounts.

This is a very inexpensive way to promote music, and people may even buy your music just to support you.

If you do not care to use Facebook to advertise your music, you can also promote your music on YouTube. This can be very inexpensive as well, but will not always work as well as Facebook.

YouTube Videos

YouTube Videos

The way you promote your music on YouTube depends upon how many views you want to get.

Advertising on YouTube can be a great way to rack up views on a music video.

But something worth considering is that, depending on your goals, advertising may not yield the types of results you're looking for regardlessof how many views you get.

People don't always respond well to advertising

Unless you nail the type of audience that will respond well to your MV, people may not take too kindly to your video interrupting whatever YouTube users were planning on watching.

We've seen over and over again artists who try to use YT advertising to get views and exposure on a big release, only to end up getting a bunch of thumbs down and negative comments.

The reality is if you advertise a MV, you may need to brace yourself some less than warm reception.

Have awesome content

This one may sound obvious, but it's something worth pointing out.

Music video promotion is always a cost factor.

Music video production companies charge a lot of money to promote your music video. When you do it yourself, the cost of filming is somewhat less expensive, but your investment will take a toll on your resources.

If your budget isn't super-tight, then you should definitely consider hiring a professional to do the filming of your music video.

If you're new to music video production, you have a few ways to get things done cheaply.

The good news is that you don't have to make a video that's slick and looks like it was professionally made.

If you make a simple video that's easy to edit, you can probably create a viable music video for less than $300.

Branding with music videos

Just like your song, a music video should complement your image.

Be sure to put yourself in your video and play the song for people as they watch it.

Once you make your music video, use it as a way to promote your music on a regular basis.

You may not get people from your music video, but you can take advantage of your video to promote other other elements of your brand.

Promoting a music video

When you create a music video, you're going to want to promote it right away.

There's no time to spare, but if you're prepared, you can promote it as soon as you make it.

Before you decide whether you want to make a music video or simply make a music video, you should consider all the ways that you can promote it.
