If your reading our blog you probably are an independant artist
The subject today is about scam in the music industry
Now, i’m not proud to say that even i’ve been scammed for a couple hundred bucks back when i used to rap..
I was young, i had ambition, it took over my everyday actions and any opportunity felt like it could sky rocket me to the top, when really it wouldn’t because it takes a lot of time to build..
There are no shortcuts..
So you just released a song, a beat, and you get an email or a dm saying they want to push your music.. you look at there account it looks legit, you look at their followers, everything looks legit.
They will tell you they are either an A&R representative, a record label, a marketing company, i even had one that had a full fake business going on saying he was Ludacris’s manager.
STAY AWAY FROM THEM..
They want you money, then be sure they will disappear..
They know you are desperate.. they will use it against you.. You are gonna be thinking ; hey he says he can push my music he has followers it’s only 20$.. or it’s only 200$.. Trust me when i say you are throwing your money away.
In today’s world, the industry as changed drastically. You don’t even need record labels anymore, you can be your own manager, you can make it on your own!
You really want to make it as an artist?!Here are my suggestions
- Get your own .Com website, you have to build your brand!
- Get your music on spotify/itunes
- Promote through google
- Build your youtube channel
- Interact with everyone you can online (comments, likes, followers)
- Make sure you get professionaly mixed and mastered instrumentals for your music
If you do this, i trust that you are gonna have a good foundation for your music
Having you own domain costs almost nothing per year and it is worth every penny. Using google ads to get people on your own brand is the way to go.
Who doesn’t use youtube everyday? Exactly! Youtube is the best way to gain followers for your music! Interact with everyone, even the haters! Let them know you care.
