Build Brand And REAL Fanbase Before You Try To Sell. Musicians, Listen Up!

 

Your goal as a musician is to make music and entertain people. That's it. Yes there is a ton of opportunity to make money in music, but from the fans point of view, that can't be what it looks like you're doing. Put yourself in the fans shoes. Think about how you feel as a fan of anyone's music. The last thing you want is for them to always try to sell you...

Create music. Create videos. Be entertaining. It's that simple. The sales will come. Have the option for your fans to support you by buying your music and merch, or even donating to you. But constantly trying to sell them your music will only turn them away from you. You need to pull them in with entertaining content and great music. Then they will want to support you on their own and THAT'S where the money is!
