I’ve been struggling with social media lately. I feel like its needed these days for artist to be successful but man its frustrating. Social media has become toxic and I hate using that word because its constantly used these days. Its also very annoying that you have to pay to reach your fans of your page. That is crazy to me honestly. I post to my page with over 3,000 fans and only like 20 even see it. Im not one to make excuses or complain but we need to figure something out forreal. I think its best to message your support directly. I have started to do this and it has worked pretty well. I have ideas on how to solve this issue.
- Network with other artist! Collaborate.
- Go directly to your fans. Im not saying to go beg a venue to play your music. I have never done that instead I go directly to the source. I ask a fan if they want me to perform and I show up with merch and my music. Also a bonus you dont have to take a pay cut!
- Message fans directly.
- Drive around with your product! Hand out merch items
- Do free giveaways!
- Release music for free on your website and build your website audience.
Just a few ideas if you have any suggestions let me know!
