It can be frustrating when you are just starting out and don’t have an audience. Nobody knows you. Yet, you need to keep persevering.
Eventually, the momentum will pick up. Follow these tips to build your audience.
Start by Releasing Your Music
You need content.
Instead of creating a plan to build up to the release date, release your songs on the first day and build a following from that.
People aren’t going to notice you if there’s nothing to notice.
Once you have your content created, you can start pushing attention to it.
Go to and participate in open mic nights. This is a great way to meet like-minded people. The more open you are to meeting new people and sharing your music, the better off you will be.
Get involved in the local community. Help other people out and they will be more likely to reciprocate. It’s easier when you are starting out to get published in local papers and a local radio station than more established media.
There’s nothing wrong with starting small and working your way up.
Blogs, vlogs, newspapers, magazines, and gigs are all great ways to get exposure.
Become a conversation starter and establish authority in your niche.
Start conversations with people on social media and develop relationships. These relationships are valuable for your business because you never know who someone knows.
If these people see your name coming up as engaging and always wanting to help, you will get noticed and build up your reputation.
Everyone Knows Someone
Once you gain trust, people will start to recognize you. Always put your all into every interaction and performance.
You never know who someone knows and could put you in contact with. Networking is important, and everyone knows everyone in similar niches. Always be kind and reliable. You don’t want to be known as a jerk who nobody wants to work with.
