Use a real, professional distribution service

Distrokid, TuneCore, CDBaby...

If you don't know what these three services are or what they do, you need to hit Google and start searching.

These are distribution services that help put your music on all the platforms that matter:

  • Spotify
  • Apple Music
  • YouTube (& YouTube Music)
  • Random streaming platforms people may or may not have heard of

Before starting to promote your music, you should choose a platform that is easy to use. This is especially true when it comes to downloading the music you want to promote.

Instead of having to search for music using a directory, simply pick an application, such as Apple Music or Spotify, that you know will play your music correctly.

You can also choose a platform that can save you time when it comes to listing your music, such as Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, or Amazon Music.

There are many companies out there that can help you promote your music online. If you want to improve your sales, consider going through an online marketing agency.

Don’t Do Anything That Might Damage Your Release Before It Comes Out

One of the worst things you can do is post on social media about your record.

It can be a great way to get the word out about your music, but you should wait for the official release to talk about your new album.

While you’re waiting for your label to bring your record out, you can post to your Facebook or Twitter pages, and tell people what you’re doing, or you can send a Tweet or an email to your followers asking them to go to your album.

As much as you want to get the word out about your music while it’s in quarantine, you don’t want to do anything that could damage your release.

Remember, it’s still in the label’s hands.

For example, if the label goes to a networking event and they see promotion about your album on Facebook, or if someone on the music publishing team sees a promo for your CD on Instagram or someone on the promotion team sees a promo for your album on YouTube, they’re going to be more inclined to not let you use their resources.

You might have put up a promotional image, or put up a video, but you don’t want to flood your platform with promotional materials.

Do the things that are OK to do, and only do the things that are OK to do.

Choose A Powerful Microphone

You should consider upgrading your microphone to one that has a range of at least 1,000 feet.

You will be able to use the microphone to promote your music no matter where you are in the world. It is important to note, however, that you should look for a microphone with a sound pressure level of 85 decibels.

Pick A Personalization

To be most successful, you should make sure you know your target audience.

Figure out who you are promoting your music for and customize your ad to appeal to them.

Keep in mind that you will probably have to be selective.

There are very few people in the world who cannot relate to the type of music you produce. This will likely make it easier to find sponsors.

The last thing you want to do is to focus on only a few countries or geographic areas.

Instead, select the countries with the highest amount of potential customers and spend some time promoting your music to them.

Deliver Quality Posters

In addition to promoting your music, you should also focus on promoting your poster, also known as a flyer.

Make sure that your poster has a very eye-catching cover and use different colors for each one. These will help to improve the sales of your music and make sure people see your ad as soon as they walk in the door.

Get Your Name Out There

Sometimes there's simply no substitute for hard work.

No matter your preferred promotional tactic, the most important thing to remember is that it takes real time and effort to promote your music, especially if you're doing that promotion yourself.
