Posted on 12 September 2013 at 20:32
In the indie electronic scene, there are a lot of different types of bands. So how can you promote your band and get the most bang for your buck? For starters, you will want to create a plan and stick to it. Think about what you want to achieve with your promotion. Then think about the best way to do that. Do you have a new EP or album coming out? Is there a new single you want people to hear? Think about the best way that people will find out about it and go from there. A good example is if your band has a new single coming out, you may want to post it on Soundcloud for free download and then promote it via Twitter and Facebook. You may also want to send it to music blogs too. Some blogs will post it for free, but others may charge you anything from $10 to $100+.
If you are promoting an EP or album, the same thing applies. Post on SoundCloud and promote via Twitter/Facebook/blogs etc. If you have any videos or remixes, these can be promoted in a similar manner too. But don’t only stick to SoundCloud! There are plenty of other
How to Promote an Electronic Indie Band
Recently I’ve been trying to promote some indie electronic bands, and have had some success with it. I thought I’d jot down the few tricks I’ve learned that seem to be working.
1. Make sure they’re good. Even the best marketing in the world cannot sell a bad product. If you don’t think your band is any good, why should anyone else?
2. Don’t bother unless they’re really good. It’s not enough for your band to be as good as other bands: there are thousands of other bands, and most of them aren’t making it either. You need to stand out from the crowd in some way: ideally both musically and visually, but at least one of those is essential
3. Get feedback from people you trust who know music. No matter how much you like your band, there is no substitute for honest feedback from people who know music and aren’t afraid to say what they think about yours. If you can’t get anyone to give you a straight answer, then maybe you don’t yet have something worth marketing? Or maybe you need to find more trustworthy friends?
4. Get feedback from people you trust who know nothing about music. The more specific the
How To Promote An Electronic Indie Band
The promotion of an indie electronic band should involve a website that contains all information about the band as well as its upcoming events. A blog is another way to promote the band, and this can be linked from the band’s website. The blog should have news about the band as well as articles about other electronic music.
The blog should also have links to other blogs related to electronic music. This will provide the audience with more information about what is happening in the electronic music world and will help them decide if they wish to follow your band or not.
A press release should also be sent out to relevant publications in order to let people know about your band. The press release should be written in a professional manner and include a link back to your website so people can get more information on your upcoming gigs etc.
You may also want to consider using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter in order to promote your band. These sites allow you access millions of users who are interested in this type of music and who may be willing to buy tickets for your gig if they see it advertised on these sites.
If you are in a band, you know how difficult it can be to get your music heard and make any kind of money with your art. Today we will talk about the strategies that independent and small artists have used to get their sound out there and make a little cash. Most of these strategies apply to indie electronic bands and artists, but they can also be used by other kinds of bands.
Do you have a website?
If not, what are you waiting for? You need to create a website for your band. If you don’t know how to do it yourself, ask someone who does or hire someone to do it for you. A simple website is enough; as long as it has information about your band (the name of the members, some photos, samples of your music) and information about how to contact you by email or phone. Once you have created your website, make sure people know about it by adding links on all the websites that apply to your band: MySpace, Facebook, Reverb Nation, Sound Cloud, etc.
How good is your music?
Before doing anything else, make sure that the quality of your music is good enough to be released. Having said that, don’t spend too much time trying to perfect your
In the past, promoting an indie band was very difficult and often expensive. With the birth of the internet, indie bands are now able to promote themselves with little cost. With the ease of uploading music to sites like myspace and purevolume, indie bands can build a fan base in no time. There are also many free music promotion companies that will help promote your band for free.
The most important thing about promoting any band is getting your name out there. In order to do this you need to be able to get in touch with your fans and let them know about new shows and albums. Many bands use mailing lists to keep their fans up-to-date on what is going on.
Another great way to promote your band is through blogs. Blogs allow you to communicate with fans on a personal level and they are a great way to let people know what is going on with your band.
