If you have been following my previous articles, you should know that the focus of your Internet music promotion should be two things.
At least in the beginning you want to concentrate on;
• getting visitors to your website ( additionally known as website traffic)
• building your mailing list
As you work on getting people to your web site, you’ll be tempted to use certain techniques that will promise to give you faster results.
Some forms of promotion simply won’t work for you, as a artist. Spamming could work for Viagra marketers and get-rich-quick schemes but believe me; you could only HURT yourself trying it.
Unsolicited emails will only make individuals hate you. And they know who sent it to them!
Traffic ex changes will get you traffic but it is pretty much useless. Virtually all of the people who use them are either trying to get rich quick or doing the same thing as you; getting themselves more traffic.
In other words, the people on traffic ex varys don’t care about you, your website or your music!
You can get things looking nice when it comes to number of your web site’s visitors and Alexa ranking.
But then comes the moment of truth. The numbers you actually care about the most may not be so nice. I’m talking about your sales.
What good is it to have 20 000 individuals on your mailing list if nobody buys or turns up to see your show?
What you should do instead is be patient. Learn how to build a targeted traffic and mailing list. Really master the basics of Web marketing. You’ll see solutions and with time, you’ll see more resources in your bank account.
individuals will love you for what you do and you will feel wonderful about it.
