8 Ways To Get People To Share Your Song
Recording music and posting it online is now a relatively simple and easy process, but getting it heard and shared among potential fans remains something of challenge for many up-and-coming artists. Here are some suggestions for making that process easier.
Paying for promotion isn't always financially tenable for artists who are just starting out, and many large-scale marketing options can seem inaccessible. Luckily, one of the best ways to promote your music is through your already established core fan base. On MusicThinkTank, Brianna DeMayo offers several tips on to get these fans to share your music, be it through reward based incentives or simply asking nicely. Sharing is caring, after all.
"You’ll notice that there will be certain people that always reach out to you, like your posts, like your pics, etc. These people are often your best candidates for helping you with promotion. Reach out to them personally in a private message and thank them for their support. Let them know that you need their help. I bet you can get them to share your song! Notice that we didn’t ask you to ask a random person. Only ask those that are already in tune with you; it’s much more effective."
