Greg Rollett: Leverage Other People's Audiences

image from Social media gives everyone a voice, but not all voices are created equal. As an indie musician, you have to understand that some people have bigger, wider and more responsive audiences that you do. Greg_Rollett-300x300 

All the music marketing teachers, coaches and bloggers out here today (including me) tell everyone to create content, blog, blog, blog and connect with your fans.

Where this fails to work is when you do not have the audience to even watch your videos, read your blogs and check out your content, even if its dope content.

Over the past year we have been working with our musicians to create content that leverages Other People's Audiences. What that means is taking your content and framing it for someone else's site. What you are doing is a reverse "Field Of Dreams."  Think about it. If a site has 100,000 unique visitors or a ton of RSS subscribers and your site has 100 readers - does it make more sense to put your content on your site, cross your fingers, hope and pray, or guest post, get interviewed or put some solid and valuable content on someone else's site and drive traffic back to your site

At the end of the day this will help you grow your audience, build your mailing list and start engaging with more fans on your home turf.
