By Tiara Ogabang

This article will discuss an easy way to promote your music. You are probably wondering what you can do to gain exposure to your music. The following suggestions are just the beginning of a larger picture of what you need to promote your music.

Why do you need to promote your music?

To make the most of your hard work and to make your talent known. You can do that by sharing all the good qualities that make your music stand out by sharing with the world.

You want your fans to experience your music and enjoy every moment of listening, so your music must be presented in a pleasurable way.

Decide what you want to be known for

Decide what you want to be known for

If you are already a musician, your goal is probably to establish yourself as a successful musician. Be aware of where you want to go and what you want to be known for, so you can set out properly.

To increase your profits from your videos, try to make them long and detailed. The lengthier the video, the more people are likely to watch it.

So, if you want to bring in more views, be sure to fill the video with lots of information. You might include links to purchase music, music videos of previous works, or links to other related videos that are also being produced.

You want people who view your videos to listen to your music and watch your videos. Think about what they want to hear.

What kind of visuals do you want them to see? Are you offering some form of choreography?

If so, how do you want them to view your dance?

Video transmission and bandwidth requirements

If you have created a video and are thinking of putting it on the Internet, you need to think about the bandwidth required for its transmission. Video transmission tends to use a lot of bandwidth; therefore, you will want to make sure your video is encoded at a higher quality.

If you are planning to upload your video to a video hosting site, check their bandwidth requirements.

When composing your background music for a video, try to be creative and different. Don't choose a song that is a well-known, popular hit.

The theme of the video should be unique and help you market your music or CD. For example, if your CD is about cats, choose a classic version of Cats In The Cradle by Elton John as the background music.



Include some visual aids or graphics in the video. If you are putting a video on YouTube, for example, try to include a link in your description that takes viewers to the artist's website, where they can read more about your product and purchase it.

You can also include a URL in the description that takes viewers to another site where they can learn more about your services.

If your video is in a foreign language, you should try to learn as much as you can about the culture to include in your video. If you study many other languages, you can always say the main points in the different languages.

When trying to get people to watch and listen to your videos, you should create a Facebook group for your target audience. This way, you can post your videos in advance and ask your followers to subscribe to your group.

This is a great way to organize a network of video viewers. If they cannot subscribe directly to your group, share the URL with them and encourage them to subscribe.

Make sure that your videos are promoted in a two-fold fashion. Let your existing core fanbase know that new content is up via your blog and email or newsletter list.

But, also make sure to promote it to new readers through social media ads and RSS subscriptions. The more people that see your video, the greater the chance they'll try it out!

Avoid commercial videos

Avoid commercial videos, such as the Pizza Factory or Electric Factory, unless you have a special reason to do so. You can take the most boring thing in the world and turn it into an entertaining commercial for your business.

Don't forget to post your videos to a file hosting site. Video files can be huge, and it isn't easy to find a site willing to store them for you free of charge.

Sites like YouTube charge a one-time fee or monthly fee. One-time fees are more cost-effective.

If you are posting a video on YouTube, make sure that it has the proper tags. You need to put "Video <3" under the title.

This will help drive viewers to your site to watch other videos you have uploaded.

A video is a great way to get in touch with the customers. They will come to you if you can connect with them in a way they can understand.

Give good content so that they will come back for more!

Social media content

Social media content

Many people out there are posting videos on social media sites but haven't figured out how to get the best results from them. They post the videos on the same website, with the same content, and ask people to subscribe to their videos.

This is a huge wasted opportunity. You need to create your videos for social media and then use them to promote your other social media content.

It should not be hard to come up with great video ideas. You have to put your time and effort into it.

Create a few videos to review, upload and market your products. The more you do now, the more you are going to get out of it.
