10 Quick Music Marketing Tips

Filed under: Music Marketing, Band Promotion — ian @ 4:12 pm
  1. #MusicMarketing Too many advertisements slow Websites down and are usually ignored anyway!
  2. Content, Design and the ability to Listen are the key ingredients to a successful and effective Website.
  3. Your Fans are the apple core (or is that Heart?) of your website - Well that’s what I believe anyway!
  4. US and THEM = V.Bad karma.
  5. A Loyal Fan is a Royal Fan.
  6. Your band’s Website Message must be delivered in 90 seconds or less - only 1.5 minutes to get your entire communication across.
  7. Collaborate with other bands who share your niche.
  8. The more you listen to your fans, the more they’ll listen to your music - Which means they should become New Customers.
  9. Your band’s market share (slice of pie), within your locale, can be enhanced considerably by promoting your Niche.
  10. Your band’s website will grow if you keep it focussed and your message simple!

  1. These tips are really useful but these are not related to music promotion.It is related to promotion of your music website and the band promotion.

  2. Dacey…good point, however the tips are related to music as a whole. For instance, in tip #10 (Your band’s website will grow if you keep it focused and your message simple!) will enable your site to become a trusted content source and therefore position you to sell more music.

    In my experience, your website is your main marketing hub so it’s really important to have a strategy in place to maximize it. Here are some additional Music Industry Resources that have helped me and others…and a good amount of them are centered around internet marketing.

  3. Thanks Dacey & Mike,
    my simple point is: Marketing is about understanding your fans (customers) and getting to know what they want from your band.

    These tips are not really about ‘music promotion’ Dacey, but promotion Is part of the marketing mix, I’m talking about understanding ones fan and creating a website accordingly - You can’t just stand behind your market stall shouting ROLL UP, ROLL UP! ;)

    Music Industry Resources is a good website Mike :)
