How To Market Music: An Effective No-Fail 3 Step Music Marketing Formula That Works

How To Market Your Music More Effectively

Knowing how to market your music is without a doubt THE most important thing you can do for your music business and your music career as a whole. You know it’s something that must be handled and if you’re not making efforts to learn how to market your music more effectively then you should know that, at the very least, nothing serious will ever happen in your music business career.

The first thing to ask yourself is whether or not you’re currently managing the most basic elements of an effective music marketing campaign.

What do I mean by this?

To begin it’s important to assess where you’re at right now and determine whether or not you know and understand exactly what the basic components of an effective music marketing campaign are? Let’s face it, if you plan on making a name for yourself in the music industry it’s important to realize you’ll be investing a lot of your personal time and money into your music career. If you’re certain your absolute goal is to mold your music talents into a true “music business” and you have no doubts about the career path you’ve chosen… then you’ll want to be as efficient and productive as you can possibly be.

Most indie bands and musicians whether from the Rock, Hip Hop, Folk or any genre for that matter, tend to work on only one or two of the three essential requirements of effective music marketing. For instance most musicians are great at connecting with audiences. What with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube in the mix, communications have become stupid simple for today’s musician.

On the other hand, asking for the sale is occasionally handled effectively but tends to be approached hap-hazardly and without a formula or the necessary accompanying awareness campaigns. This lack-luster approach tends to dampen the efforts of even the hardest working bands and musicians in the industry. Unfortunately, applying only one or even two of these key components without the essential third element in a music marketing campaign won’t bring in maximum returns for the time invested. This just isn’t how to market music effectively.

Don’t get me wrong, getting your name out there and partaking in conversations with fans can be cool, even self gratifying and it’s definitely better than not doing anything at all, but imagine how much more effective you’d be if you went to work on all of these essential marketing aspects of your music business armed with a formula and a pin-point focused purpose.

The Solution To Ineffective Music Marketing

The bottom line is that when you break down the ins and outs on how to market your music effectively, it becomes apparent that as a musician, it’s important to discipline yourself to focus on the elements that are most productive for your music business growth. Broken down in an easy to follow process these elements of music marketing and music promotion essentially consist of a 3 step formula:

Step #1 – Create Awareness: Find an audience who appreciates your music style, your sound and your identity. Take the steps necessary to communicate your musical message to them. Everything you do should create an awareness for you and your music at all times. Approach this with precision and a firm direction and your music business foundation will be solidified for years to come.

Step #2 – Connect with Your Audience: I mentioned earlier how stupid simple it is to connect with fans today. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the many other online “hangouts” make this process a breeze. Once you’ve laid the initial groundwork and you’ve made your audience aware of exactly what you have to offer, work on maintaining those important on-going relationships with your fans, the media and the all important music business contacts you collect along the way. Your fans and contacts want to know that you’re for real. That you care about them. That you’re here for the long-haul. Making connections with them and keeping them involved in your growth process will ensure this happens for you.

Step #3 – Sell Your Stuff (Ask for the sale): This one is essential. If you don’t have products to sell… you DON’T have a music business. Working to create a steady, consistent cash flow for your music business is paramount to your long-term success. Entice fans to spend their money and buy your stuff and the rest of your music marketing processes will flow and flourish so much easier.

Yes! It’s Easier Said Than Done

I recognize that it’s easier to talk about these things than it is to make them happen in your career but this is what the music business is all about so incorporating these processes into your music business campaign is a must, or you simply won’t last long enough to make dent in the music world.

And that’s not what we want for your music career… is it?

Again, it might seem easy enough to map these things out on paper but the truth is that most bands and musicians will find a hundred and one ways to screw this up.

You’ll either spend too much time on creating awareness and connecting with your audience but then fail to ask for the sale. Or you’ll ask for the sale way to often and forget about connecting with your people. I mentioned earlier that it’s cool to get all gung-ho, get busy, and head on out there and do a bunch of music marketing, but if you’re not touching all three elements of this process on how to market music, then you’re missing the boat and more importantly… you’re fans won’t be “feeling” your vibe. They just won’t connect with you on a deeper level. Without connection, there’s no sales and without sales, you don’t have a music business.

Laurea in linguaggi dei media, poi la specializzazione in digital content management, e così mi occupo anche dei canali web e social di Radio Number One. Amo la musica, canto sempre (forse troppo), suono clarinetto e tastiera. Col mio gruppo Esatonica ho inciso il disco “Bello oggettivo” nel 2014, e appena possibile mi esibisco in acustico col trio La Percentuale

La tentazione di sorridere e di ironizzare su qualsiasi notizia è sempre dietro l’angolo, ma quando parte la sigletta delle news gli ascoltatori si aspettano che tu sia attendibile e credibile. Da sempre mi muovo su questo delicato equilibrio che vede da una parte il giornalista e dall’altra lo speaker che si lascia un po’ andare. Sono convinto che le prime ore del mattino in radio abbiano un fascino particolare, ma chissà che un giorno non riesca a svegliarmi ad un’ora decente… Il mio sogno è andare in onda ogni giorno da una piazza diversa per raccontare la vita della gente che ci ascolta. Odio i negazionisti e i fabbricatori di fake news, amo le persone molto intelligenti e che non se la tirano. Mi affascina lo sport, anche se negli ultimi anni la passione per la cucina gli sta rubando un po’ di spazio. E la pancia lo conferma...

Un 31 agosto del secolo scorso in quel di Monza verso le 22.30 nacqui in un ospedale cittadino. Tre ostetriche arrivarono a cavallo dei loro carrelli e mi portarono la crema, i pannolini e il biberon… Fuori dalla sala parto (che in quel caso fu una sala arrivo) si stagliavano moltissime persone che facevano i lavori più disparati. C’era un falegname, un muratore, un elettricista, un imbianchino e via via molti altri. Solo in un secondo momento seppi che erano lì per risistemare la corsia e non per me, ma la gioia iniziale fu tanta lo stesso. Il silenzio di quella serata non venne interrotta da un pianto, ma dalla notizia che davo sulla nascita del bimbo che era nato nella sala vicino alla mia e che, probabilmente da grande, avrebbe fatto lo sportivo. Il resto è storia comune.

Come ci si racconta in poche righe? Non sapendo da che parte cominciare, ho chiesto una mano a mio figlio Stefano (di 10 anni), il quale si è prontamente messo a disposizione: “Papi, sei pelato!”, è stata la prima risposta, che mi ha dimostrato una certa capacità di cogliere il mio travolgente lato estetico. Alla richiesta di andare “oltre”, mi ha osservato con fare implacabile dicendo: “Una cosa veloce che sono in chat con gli amici, ma secondo me sei simpatico, sempre allegro, sensibile e hai tanti amici che ti vogliono bene”. Ed è sparito nella sua stanza, anche lui sempre allegro, con i 10 euro appena guadagnati.
