How do you get music noticed in a world that has become so noisy? Is it possible to get anyone’s attention in an age where we’re bombarded with constant messaging and information? In his opening keynote for the 2016 DIY Musician Conference, Kevin lays out the foundation for cutting through the noise and getting people to take notice. Kevin Breuner, CD Baby’s VP of Marketing, gavea great kickoff keynote speechat the DIY Musician Conference, urging artists to stop “marketing” their music (in the way we’ve come to think of that term), and startbuilding a storyaround the music.
Here are five ways that you can start earning an income as an online musician that you can set up in as little as one day:
At the top of the list is the subscription based crowd-supporting platform called Patreon because every single musician out there should already know about it. Not only that, but every single musician out there should already be on it, actively!
Spotify has quickly become the number one music streaming service in the world and it continues to get better not just for listeners but for music artists and if you are not already a part of it I suggest you become a part of it as soon as possible. If you don’t believe me just check out the independant artist Perrin Lamb who made $56k from one song on spotify.
The importance of YouTube for promoting and marketing music has grown exponentially in the past few years and with videos taking over everything in today’s world, most people would much rather watch a video than read a blog post. This same theory now applies to your music. Music fans and people in general love seeing something visual to go along with your song. A music video for your new single could be the one thing captures attention and goes viral which would increase your exposure like you have never seen before.
