What are the different Instagram pages that promote music?
Just as there are many different music blogs, there are many different Instagram accounts that sell music. There are a few basic considerations to take into account when looking to increase your following. Below are a few of the major ones:
Are you unique? If you’re an established artist, chances are that you’ve got the “been there, done that” status among music listeners. By that, I mean that you’re already known and “known” isn’t a good thing.
Do you make what people want? Often, the music industry is viewed as a traditional industry. Artists create a lot of content for social media, but no one will pay for it unless people enjoy it. Your music needs to appeal to the people who listen to it and it needs to be of high quality.
Do you have “likes” under you? If your Instagram account isn’t filled with people willing to give you a like (that’s the actual term for a like on an Instagram post) or give your content a thumbs-up, that’s a sign you’ve got a problem.
