Artist & Social media

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.

  1. Network with other artist! Collaborate.
  2. 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!
  3. Message fans directly.
  4. Emails
  5. Drive around with your product! Hand out merch items
  6. Do free giveaways!
  7. Release music for free on your website and build your website audience.

Just a few ideas if you have any suggestions let me know!

Daily Blog post Retribution

Today I look back on my album Retribution. If you haven’t heard it before I will be posting the youtube link below. I would never recommend to anyone to dwell in their past, but sometimes it can be beneficial to look back and reflect. I use my past for motivation on some projects. The truth is our past is important.

How do I deal with the past events that changed my life forever? I train my body, mind and spirit. Fitness is one of the most important parts of my life. I love the challenge it presents with every rep and set. I feel the stress leaving my body. I enjoy reading and writing stories. Being creative is also very empowering. I feel meditation is something everyone should consider trying. I know it’s not for everyone. Some people prefer prayer which is also fine. Try to find as many things as you can to inspire you and keep you healthy. Family and friends are very important but you have to learn to be happy with yourself too.

Forgive but never forget and move on!
