So You’ve Finished Your New Record…
You’re Ready to Release It…
Well, you’d better think about it seriously. Your music is your passion – your dream. If you want to stand a fighting chance in the extremely crowded music environment that’s out there in today’s indie music market, you must market and promote your music diligently. Simply uploading the new album or single through Tunecore, iTunes, CDbaby, and other distribution portals without coinciding release with publicity and marketing prior to going to distribution, is more than likely a waste of time.
So, Now You Really Don’t Know Where to Start
You’ve reached out to the music media and they don’t seem to want to listen. They won’t review your CD, offer you an interview, or they just plain don’t care. This is pretty typical behavior from extremely busy music media, blogs, or music publications. Getting attention for a relatively unknown artist is almost impossible – Almost – if you are trying to do it yourself. This can be frustrating because you truly believe in your music, and you believe that once it’s out there and people can hear it, that you will have a good chance to succeed.
Yes, it’s possible to gain some degree of exposure and attention as a DIY Music Marketer. I’ve personally known bands and solo artists who have achieved relative success doing it on their own. But you had better be prepared to dedicate your life to it, and do nothing else. This can be difficult. Especially if you have to tour or make some sort of living at a day job while you wait for success to bestow you. The time and effort it takes to do this is enormous. The other big issue, and probably the most significant problem, as I said earlier, is that nobody will listen because they don’t know you or have not heard about you or your music. If it’s a label deal you’re looking for – without an established buzz, you can forget that.
SO WHAT’S THE SOLUTION?
If you’re an unknown indie artist, there is really only one way to create the awareness and attention you need to get your music out there. It’s with professional help from an established publicist, marketer, and promoter. One who knows the business and the important players in it who can make things happen. An experienced, well connected publicist will get you the reviews, interviews, and press you need to bring the attention to your music, and help put it on the radar. A publicist who has dealt with the music media, and knows the drill can mean an enormous boost to your career and it can be the difference between success and failure.
You’ve no doubt spent good money on recording your music and everything else that goes with facilitating your CD or single; now is not the time to hold back. Professionally marketing your wares is probably the most important thing you need to have done in order to achieve success with your music and career.
