How to Market Online Music to People on Your List

Most people have a few friends that they consider to be their ‘list’ of people. These are the people that they want to share things with, that they know will appreciate it. These are the people that they consider ‘special.’ You may have similarly curios people in your social sphere, that you’d like to share your work with. This article will walk you through a simple approach to figuring out how to market your music online to people on your list, as well as how to engage with your fans more generally.

Why Should I Market My Music To My Friends?

Let’s face it, when you have talent, there will always be people who want to help you shine. Sometimes, this comes in the form of a financial boost (more on that below), sometimes it comes in the form of support, sometimes it comes in the form of exposure, and sometimes it comes in the form of ‘word-of-mouth’ recommendations. For most musicians, the last of these makes up the majority of their fan base. People with shared interests and tastes tend to build connections, and over time these connections turn into friendships.

How Do I Market My Music To People On My List?

The first step in figuring out how to market your music to your friends is to figure out what you’re going to offer them. Are you going to offer a live concert? Perhaps you’ll want to support them financially, or maybe you’ll want to expose them to your latest album. For the purposes of this article, let’s assume that you’ll want to offer your music for free, with the option of paying a small fee to stream or download it. This is a common approach. Just ensure that you don’t devalue your own music. If your friends are more inclined to listen to alternative rock, and you’re presenting yourself as your own personal brand of rock, there will always be people who don’t appreciate the ‘sameness’ of it all and will prefer to pay for ‘real’ rock music.

How Do I Find My Friends On My List?

This is easier said than done, which is why it’s a good idea to make use of social media to find your friends. There are dozens of platforms out there, but three that you should absolutely consider using are Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

On Twitter you can follow the music community and use the platform to connect with like-minded people who will appreciate your content. You can follow notable musicians, bloggers, and other content creators to keep abreast of new trends and developments in the industry. You can follow hashtags to discover content that is related to your interests, and you can search for specific users or brands to find their latest tweets. If you have a large network of friends on Twitter, you can also use the platform to discover new friends in the music community. Just remember to be polite and courteous, and you’ll be able to establish good rapport with other users.

On Instagram, you can follow musicians and other creators to see their daily lives and to discover new content that they’re documenting. These photos and videos will often be interspersed with news stories and other content that has been curated by the user. If you don’t have an Instagram account yourself, you can always apply for a guest account so that you can browse the various content that others are posting. Instagram is a bit different to Twitter in that it’s more of a visual platform. This means that the content that you see on Instagram will be more varied, and it will frequently include images of people, bands, and albums that you may not have heard of before. These are the people that your friends may be interested in following, and you can use the platform to expose your music to a completely new audience.

On Facebook, you can take advantage of the fact that everyone is on the platform to connect with your friends. With over 2 billion monthly active users, you’re guaranteed to find someone who knows or knows of your friends. Like Instagram, Facebook is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to content. This means that while you may see a wide range of content on the platform, from videos of cats to political debate, you’re also likely to see content that relates to your interests, be it music or sports or news. If you join Facebook groups that are related to your interests, you can discover content that relates to your niche, as well as content that you might not have considered before. The more you engage with the platform, the more it will learn about your interests and what you like. This means that over time, the suggestions that it makes about your content will tend to be more and more aligned with what you’re looking for. It’s all about personalization and relevance on Facebook, and this is why the platform is so effective at suggesting content that users might like.

Once I’ve Found My Friends On My List, How Do I Market My Music To Them?

Once you’ve found your friends on your list, the next step is to figure out what you’re going to offer them. Are you going to give them a free download of your album? Perhaps you’ll want to offer them a ticket to your next show? Or maybe you’ll want to introduce them to your music through a playlist that you’ve curated? Whatever you do, make sure that you tailor the information that you give to each individual on your list. Some people will appreciate getting a free download, some may enjoy watching you perform live, and others may like being introduced to your music through a playlist. Tailor the information that you give to your friends according to what they want or need, and make sure that you don’t just give them a one-size-fits-all approach to your content. The more you can personalize the information that you give to your friends, the more they will value it and appreciate it. This, in turn, will make you more effective at engaging with your fan base.

How Do I Keep My List Of Friends, And Why Should I Care?

This is the part that many people don’t think about. When you’ve found your friends through a variety of means (most notably Facebook), you’ll start to see their faces pop up in your news feed, especially as you get to know them better. Once you’ve established a good rapport, you’ll start to see their faces come up in your feed, showing you the various things they are up to. It’s important to keep in mind that while these are your friends, they are also people who you’ve chosen to share your content with, and as a result, they have an interest in what you have to say. This is why it’s important to remain authentic, interesting, and knowledgeable, while at the same time, ensuring that your content is tailored to each individual on your list. For the best results, make sure to check out your list every few months to ensure that their interests remain top of mind, and keep abreast of what’s going on in their lives, both good and bad.

Just because someone is on your list doesn’t mean that they have to like what you do. You can decide whether or not to share your music with them. If you decide that they aren’t someone with whom you want to share your content, then there’s no harm in not including them on your list. The key is to figure out how to market your music to the people on your list. While it might be difficult to get your friends to listen to your music, it’s much easier to get them to appreciate and value your content if you’ve properly marketed it to them. If you can implement the steps discussed above, then you’ll be able to effectively utilize social media to its fullest potential, and ensure that your friends, family, and fans hear about what you have to say. So go out there and start creating! You have friends who want to hear your music!
