There once was an era where music could only be listened to on the radio and purchased from a brick-and-mortar store. Unfortunately, this made breaking into the music industry a difficult task for new musicians. Speed forward to the Internet age, and many new musicians will find that getting discovered is much easier now that they can promote their tracks online using an MP3 music store. Music has become a digital commodity and selling music online is one of the easiest ways for rock bands, solo vocalists and country groups to get noticed. Without an online presence, a musician has almost no chance of becoming popular and listened to by the masses.
Promotion and Practice
Of course, this doesn’t mean that a band can just place their tracks in an MP3 music store and expect instant success. With millions of songs and competition, promoting themselves and their unique sound is even more important than before. Videos of live shows will help this task as well as using a way to communicate with fans. Musicians should have a blog that they keep updated and fill it with tales from the road, videos of backstage antics or rehearsals and of course, samples of their music.
Musicians that are selling music online and are fortunate enough to create sales and a loyal following of fans have an increased chance of signing a record deal with a label that spots their talent and initiative. Also, it gives a musician a leg up when negotiating about pay with a concert promoter if they have recorded dollar signs that show their rising popularity.
It’s a grind for sure, but bands that have passion for their music and the business will be rewarded with happy customers and fans that appreciate their sound.
