So You Have A Great Song – Now What? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Screen Shot 2012-10-29 at 12.48.40 AMWell, a lot
actually. It takes so much more than simply uploading a digital file of one of
your tracks, and then assuming that truly good music will always get discovered
and heard. While yes, it does and
always has come down to the quality of music, many musicians find it
overwhelming the amount of work that goes into building and sustaining an
independent music career. It requires inspiration, strategy, and perhaps more
important than ever before, a relationship with your fans to morph your music
from beyond a hobby and into a sustainable and viable career.

With that in mind, the following infographic
breaks down how musicians should consider approach the mighty tool (and beast) that
is the Internet:

  1. Many musicians believe that by simply uploading their music, they will get heard and discovered. They don’t understand that it takes a lot of daily hard work to get somewhere.
    I still remember a musician, who was surprised to hear that I promote my music daily. When I asked him how often he promotes his music, he replied “about an hour every second week.” No comment.

  2. I recently went through a job loss and bankruptcy that left me completely uninspired and feeling financially desperate. For the last 6 months I was without any interest to write, gig, or promote my music. In that time I lost a ton of momentum, I went from being able to write constantly to a hella writers block and I feel like my career is back at ground zero. I was throwing shows monthly, gigging, and even shooting photography as means to meet people. I feel like I am just getting started again, I want to encourage all the independent artists out there to think BIG if you believe in yourself and dont be discouraged. Sometimes the chips being down can inspire you to push 10x harder when you return! Being an artist should never feel like a drain…its who you are!
