3 Painstakingly EASY Tips for Musicians

1) Make Music: All the saturation and marketing in the world won't matter if you do not have
a professional sounding product. Notice that I did not say a high quality music product. A mediocre song that is mixed and mastered by a professional will go leaps and bounds over a well written song with a crappy demo recording. That's the truth, so deal with it and get a professional sounding product.

2) Get Technological: Set up websites, Twitter, FB, MySpace, and any place that doesn't charge you to sell albums, merchandise, and concert tickets. There are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of sites where you can set up your music. Does that mean that you will rake in profits? No, but this will help create a buzz for your music, and gives your fans easy access to your music. I also recommend CD Baby. You cannot beat the low price you get for what you get. Spend about $15 to set up a single on iTunes, Amazon, and dozens of other sites, plus your own webpage and FB app.

3) Market yourself: Now you got to get out there. Whether that means concerts, meeting fans, or even just networking at music conferences, you need to get out there and meet people. If you have a day job, you can enjoy the thousands of opportunities online to talk about your music, share your music, collaborate, and meet other musicians. Find where your talents lie, and use them online to make a name for yourself.


Finally, you need to be patient. It will take about a year of heavy marketing on your part to start to reap rewards. Although you probably won't pick up that million dollar contract, you will gain thousands of fans, sell albums and merch, get a few gigs, and find that you might be able to quit that day job and become a musician full time, all thanks to good music and great technology.
