Promote your Shows on Bandsintown & Songkick
One of the main reasons you got into music, to begin with, was to play in front of an audience. Help ensure that your next show is played to a full house by promoting your shows on ticket buying channels such as Songkick and Bandsintown. With location-based targeting, Bandsintown lets site viewers find the hottest shows in their area.
As an added bonus, linking your Songkick or Bandsintown accounts to your Wix Music site automatically updates any new tour dates and lets you purchase tickets on your website without lifting a hand.
Create your own YouTube Channel
Artists that you’ve possibly heard of such as Karmin, Justin Bieber, and The Weeknd have one thing in common: they were all discovered on YouTube. If you’re wanting to get your music to the masses, you best believe that you need a YouTube channel to get you going.
Host your Music on Apple Music
The default music service for all Apple products, Apple Music is highly regarded for hosting the largest online music library in the world. The new Apple Music service goes one step better being the online place for your digital music collection. They want to aid people in finding new tunes based on what they’re already listening to. This could be you and your band.
Familiarize yourself with Reddit Music
The homepage of the underground, Reddit is perhaps the largest thing on the internet. You might not know this, but a lot of viral things you see online were on Reddit first, and that’s why musicians should familiarize themselves with the Reddit Music platform. The grassroots-style community for content sharing lets musicians get a true feel for how their music is being noticed by audiences. Be aware, hardcore users can be harsh on newbies. Just be authentic and you’ll be okay.
