Promotion is one of the major hurdles that most people face when trying to sell their music. We’ll talk about what promotion is and how it differs from music sharing.
This article will also cover the possible options available for you to explore, depending on your circumstances.
This article will explore the following:
- What is promotion
- What does the promotion mean to you?
- What are the possible options for you to promote your music in Ghana?
Promoting your music in Ghana is a necessary part of a music career. For your music to be heard, there must be promotion.
Many artists think that music sharing sites like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Facebook are the only means of promoting their music. This doesn’t seem right.
You can also promote your music through blogs, radio, TV, YouTube, and print publications.
There is more than one way to promote your music.
You can also promote your music using flyers, catalogs, and posters.
For instance, you can create and publish your own album catalogs (manuscripts) to present to the media. This allows you to explain your music and brand to the media before uploading your music on Spotify and others.
For the record, I’ve also discovered that publishing your own catalogs is not an effective way to promote your music since the musicians tend to be copycat artists. Also, catalog publishers have their own agenda; they want to sell their own catalog to make more money than through streaming.
A better way of promoting your music in Ghana is to use a music press agent’s services. We’ll talk about how to go about using a music press agent in Ghana.
Let’s explore the options available for you to consider, based on your situation, goals, financial circumstances, and the kind of music you do.
Upgrade your recording studio
If you need to produce new music, you may consider upgrading your recording studio to a bigger and better one if you have the finances. You can also get a professional audio engineer to produce new songs after you’ve shot the video for your latest song.
This will cost you a lot of money, depending on the equipment and other expenses involved in producing your latest music. You may consider doing this before you launch a new album to market the album well.
If you’re looking for the best ways to promote your music, look no further than music press agents.
For many years now, musicians have been relying on press agents to sell their music. Although press agents have indeed been of immense help to many musicians, the truth is that most musicians ignore their recommendations.
I believe that the main reason why most musicians fail to become big is that they don’t follow their agents’ recommendations.
Here are some of the benefits of working with a music press agent:
If you work with a good music press agent, he or she will know how to get your music noticed and played on the radio.
- Your music press agent has access to radio stations so that you can send your music to them.
- Your music press agent has the journalists’ contacts at the radio stations so that your songs will be played on the radio.
- Your music press agent has the journalists’ contacts at the newspapers so that your songs will be played in the newspapers.
- Your music press agent has the contacts of the artists and agencies in Ghana so that you can get your songs played at their shows, during their tours, or other events.
You can get a music press agent to work with you to get your music on radio stations at a low cost. You can work with the agents on a commission basis.
A music press agent is not an expensive proposition to do. You can hire a single music press agent to do all your promotion for you at a small cost.
You can work with two or three music press agents for the same amount so that you can save some money.
You can also work with several music press agents to promote you at a small cost.
I think that the main reason why the music press agents in Ghana are not very effective is that most musicians ignore their recommendations. Most musicians do not follow their agents’ recommendations, and they even ignore their agents’ presence if they are present at the relevant radio stations.
Why is it that so many musicians make it big while others do not make it big? I believe the main reason is that so many musicians do not follow their agents’ recommendations.
If you’re looking for ways to promote your music in Ghana, I suggest that you hire several music press agents to do the job for you at a meager cost.
It is possible to get your music played on radio stations if you work with a music booking agent.
For many years now, music booking agents have been dominating the music scene in Ghana. Many people think that booking agents have been playing the same role as music press agents.
But the truth is that many music booking agents have been doing a lot more than that. Many of them are making a lot of money through their talent in booking musicians for shows, tours, and other activities.
If you are not sure that booking agents in Ghana have been doing a lot more than what music press agents have been doing, you can ask me about it.
The truth is that many musicians have been making it big without the help of music booking agents. But I’m sure you will agree with me that if booking agents in Ghana play the same role as music press agents, many musicians in Ghana would have been big.
My final point is that it is possible to get your music played on radio stations if you work with a music booking agent.
You can get your music played on radio stations if you work with a reputable music booking agent.
I can say with all honesty that it is possible to get your music played on radio stations in Ghana if you work with a music booking agent.
And that is my advice for you.
