Networking is an integral part of your music career. The days when you can simply publish music, do not invest time in promoting this music and become a well-known artist are over. The good news is that many tools are available for free to make your music accessible to a global audience. Below I have listed three ways you can connect as a music producer.
1. You can join other artists
This is one of the simplest but most effective tips. This is also a tip that many producers neglect. By reaching out to other artists, you give your artist project the opportunity to be discovered, get advice and face a new audience. However, this must be done correctly. You can’t just send a message to a world-famous artist and say you want to work with him or reissue his music. It will never work, so don’t even try. You need to contact artists who are on the same level as you. Be honest with yourself and your music. Do you make music comparable to this world-famous artist? The answer is probably no.
Search music streaming platforms to find and reach artists at a level similar to you. When you speak to these artists, you must first and foremost offer value. Email producers who ask you to listen to your latest track or follow your social profiles have and will never work. Re-post one of your most recent social media posts and mention it in your first post. Most artists, the message of other artists just want to take and take. The purpose of the interaction should be to give without waiting. Once you have determined that you are adding value to this artist, you can ask for advice or possible collaborations. Remember how you would feel if someone sent you a message, and immediately they said to follow you on social media. Would you be inclined to follow them? They don’t even know who they are. When you inform artists, offer value and never think that someone owes you a favor because you don’t.
2. Forming a community
Creating a community is one of the best ways to connect as a producer. To connect, you need to have the attention of those who want to reach you. When you build a community, you have the constant attention of many people, depending on the size of the community. They not only have the attention of people in a community, but also their support and admiration for what they do. Promoting your music will be much easier if you just let people know about your latest Version and share it with you without you asking. A good way to create a community is to create a Facebook group. In this group, you can post anything you want at any time so that one of the group members can see it. After Council number one, you want to offer value in the community. Share your latest music production tips, share your favorite youtube tutorials and share anything you think will help your community. Remember, building a community requires constant time and effort. You need to constantly interact and interact with your community, preferably every day, to build a meaningful community.
3. Join the forums known for
In addition to creating your own community, you can also join an already established community. The internet is full of forums of music producers to reach you. From electronic music to rock music, there is a forum for every music producer. I’m starting to look like a broken disk at this point, but when you join these forums, your goal should be to offer value. If you post on the forum that you have published a new song and everyone should hear it, then most likely no one will listen to it and you may even be banned from the forum. Help other producers when you ask questions, encourage other producers, and post anything that can help improve the music of other forum members. Once you’ve given value, ask for help. Do not forget to give, give and give a little more.
If you become a successful music producer, you need to be able to create professional tracks, but if no one listens to these professional tracks, then your career has no chance of losing weight. By applying the above three tips, you will notice an increase in awareness for your artist project. This awareness gives them the opportunity to be heard by a global audience and give them the opportunity to build a sustainable career.
