How to Promote Your Music Online

How to Promote Your Music Online

If you are a musician, you need to find the best ways to promote your music and get it out there to the masses. These days, if you are not taking advantage of the Internet, you are not reaching nearly as large of an audience as you could. The Internet has changed the music industry forever, and in many cases, for the better. Musicians, singers, songwriters, etc. get better and more exposure, and are able to reach out to much larger audiences. But, you need to know how to use the Internet to your advantage. Here are some tips that will help.

  • Get On YouTube – You really should have your own YouTube channel. This is how a lot of unknowns become known, and you could get discovered. Just look at Arnel Pineda. He had some YouTube videos posted. The next thing he knew, he was contacted by Neil Schon, and now he is the lead singer for Journey. You could be the next such success story.
  • Use Apple Music/iTunes – This is considered to be the default service for Apple products, and it is one of the best for hosting music online. In fact, it has the largest online music library anywhere in the world. This is where people are discovering new music, and you can get your music discovered here as well.
  • Use Wix Music – You need to have a great music website, and Wix Music is the tool you need to create it. This tool is an all-in-one online marketing solution, and it provides you with all of the tools you will need in order to promote, sell, and distribute music on the Internet. Sell your music with no commissions, right from your own website. It is easy to make sales and earn money from your music when you are using Wix Music.
  • Promote Shows – There are sites you can use to promote your upcoming gigs so everyone will know when and where you are performing. Two of our favorite sites are Bandsintown and Songkick. These sites can be connected to your Wix Music site, so information such as new tour dates, ticket purchasing, etc. can be updated automatically without having to do any extra work.

Tools You Need to Start Using Now

There are loads of online tools that you can use to start promoting your music online now. In fact, if you aren’t using these tools, you aren’t getting the most out of the Internet for your music. For instance, if you want to bid on bookings, Sonicbids is a great site that lets you create an EPK and send it to promoters in order to get new gigs. Other tools you should be using include:

1. Bandsintown

This tool will integrate with Facebook so you can build a standalone community for your music. Others who list the same influences as yourself will receive recommendations to check out your music.

2. Songkick

This is a tool that is much like Bandsintown. Even though it is pretty much the same, it never hurts to promote on as may sites as possible. Upload your upcoming gigs to both sites, and get more chances to get noticed.

3. Topspin

You need to stream your music, but you also need to email fans to let them know about new music, events, etc. You can do both with Topspin. This is a complete music store that will have all of your music and merchandise (wearable clothing magnets, shirts, photos, etc.) for sale.

4. Social Media

These days, artists need to take advantage of social media for promoting their music online. Sites you should be using include Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram, so you can send out information, photos, and videos.

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
