How To Promote Yourself As A Singer

By Tiara Ogabang

Are you a budding singer trying to further your career? This article will discuss how to promote yourself as a rising star using public relations techniques.

Not all singers can make a living from their talents. The good news is, you can be part of a wider musical community that includes fellow musicians, record producers, managers, recording studios, and the audience.

This means there is always an opportunity for singers to succeed and move to the next level, especially if you have a unique approach to your music. If you have an eye-catching look and sound, you will be noticed. Below are some pointers on how to market yourself as a singer.

Social networking

Social networking

Many singers find it hard to land opportunities because they don't promote themselves on social networking sites like Facebook. This is why in 2010, an experimental social media website was launched by Harvard graduate Jochem Nijholt.

Cofounder Max Rayne says, "To date, the site has grown to 25 million members and 24.6 million posts". It allows users to identify with a famous personality and, in turn, promotes them.

Music communities

Take part in online music communities like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and you will be surprised at how receptive the audience is. This is why it's important to include something original in your post.

One example is the singer Subaisa in South Africa. She took a picture of herself with one leg in a pose a pregnant woman would make when having a baby.

The photo is now popular with parents all over the world.

Entertainer and producer Snoop Dogg says, "Social media makes people want to buy from you, not listen to you." Hence, it's important to be active on social media platforms.


It's important to be noticed by the right people. This can be done by sharing your music on the right blogs, finding the right media channels to share your story, and introducing yourself to people in the industry.

Your profile picture

You can also position yourself as an entertainer by including your profile picture in all your social media posts. Put your picture out there and let the world know what you're all about.

Don't forget to support others.

Don’t forget to support others.

Even though you're the star of the show, you should always remember to support others. A good way to do this is to 'like' other artists' posts and add a comment or take a picture.

You can even encourage your favorite artists by commenting on their posts. This will help to develop relationships and make you more visible to other artists and managers.

If you're stuck for ideas, here are a few tips to promote yourself.

Make sure your bio makes sense.

Your bio is the most important part of your online profile. It should contain all your details such as your age, nationality, country, and contact details.

Use relevant hashtags

A good way to gain the attention of your audience is to tag your post with relevant hashtags. The best way to do this is to go to the relevant hashtags' forum.

This is where people go to ask questions about hashtags and connect to others within the industry.

Share relevant posts

Don't limit yourself to just music posts. If you're a singer or actor, consider using a selection of music posts to increase your presence online.

Make sure you include pictures and links to relevant websites, blogs, and videos.

Use influencer posts

If you're an influencer, this is the best way to gain even more followers. This is why you should put your posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

People will view your post if it's on these networks, so be sure to take advantage of this. If you have many followers, you will be placed on the influencer list and be given special offers to advertise on social media.

Use the law of attraction.

Use the law of attraction.

The law of attraction is all about having a positive mindset about your life. If you believe in yourself and are optimistic, and want to succeed, you will surely succeed.

The key to this is the law of attraction.

You cannot focus on what you don't want to happen. You can only focus on what you want to happen.

If you don't want to get sick or hurt, you can't focus on getting sick or hurting yourself.

You want to focus on doing what you know to be the right thing, and you want to let the law of attraction work for you. This is something that you can do when you come to understand the law of attraction.

Never write about the bad.

Although writing songs about your bad experiences is something you can do, it doesn't make for great public relations. It would help if you focused on the good in your life and on your experiences.

I'm not saying that you should only write about the positive side of life. We all have bad experiences and dark periods in our lives.

However, you don't want to share this with your audience. You need to keep them in a happy state of mind, and this is part of how you can market yourself.
