How to rightly get your music noticed!
Everyone wants to be popular. It's an inescapable force build into humankind. It's what drives us to adapt certain personas, or take up certain hobbies; to be noticed by fellow humans, hierarchies, or even those who have already achieved this so-called 'popularity'. But... how can you get popular on Audiotool? You've come to the right place!
One of the most logical ways to get plays, likes, and inevitably, followers, would be to link your track to the masses of this site, right?? Well, the answer is simple. No. That method of promotion is simply called; spamming. A good majority of the website do not like this. It can lead to you being blocked from posting on other people's walls/tracks, and even cause you to lose all respect from the artists on this site, those artists being your target audience. This has happened time and time again on the site, and, although in some cases specific artists do not mind you 'spamming' them your works, it is not a widely accepted way of getting your tracks, and you as an artist, noticed.
So, what on earth can I do??
Well, that question is actually really easy to answer. Talk to people. Engage in the community. Offer heartfelt - yet, not hypercritical - feedback on other people's tracks. Strive to make friends, earn respect, and, however slowly, you will see your audience start to grow. Now, of course, the quality of your music is going to have an immense impact on the size of your audience. So, you should always try your utmost to produce a well polished, likeable track, before you set out to gain a follower base. This is important because people will most likely check your work while conversing with you, thus you want your work to be at its highest quality to ensure the majority of listeners will not be disappointed. This method might not be the most convenient way to gain a fanbase, but you can't reap without first sewing. You have to set out with a purpose and fulfil that purpose to the best of your ability to reap the best rewards. Stick to your aim, and eventually, you'll get what you set out for.
Well, you can always feel free to talk to me for more advice on this subject, I am always willing to check out other artist's work, offer critique and help you on your musical journey. Ask other popular artists for their advice too, but don't get discouraged if you don't get any reply. Just carry on doing your best, and soon all that effort that you put in will all be worth it.
Much love; STAGEFRIGHT
