Artists generally don’t necessarily bother about promoting their music, or the importance of aggressive promotion. They are only concerned about singing and releasing a song.
Only a small percentage actually understands the
significance of music promotions, a larger percentage do not and ironically,
even inside the small percentage of the artists who know the relevance of
promoting their music, most of them fail to do it right.
In this article, you will discover three important ways to
promote your music as an independent artist!
1.Collaboration: Collaborating with other
artists is always a success strategy for artists looking to project their music
onto a wider audience. The key is collaborating with artists whose music is
similar or relates to yours, in the process, their fans become your fans and
An easier option is mentioning or giving shout-outs to each
other on social media, sharing one another’s links and latest tracks and
expressing your love for it. There is power in a recommendation when it comes
to music promotion and publicity.
songs: Everybody wants their music to be heard, but a lot of
times, it pays better to pay respects to popular artists, because people are
more comfortable with a song they are familiar with and will likely prefer it
to an unknown original, not because you are not good but because they are
already familiar with it.
Therefore, by doing a cover song of a popular artist, you
can tap into their fan base and take some of their fans also the hard work of
popularizing the song is already done for you and it doesn’t have to cost much,
social media has made life easy for everyone.
3.Approach Music Blogs and Score A feature:
Music blogs are a good start given the saturation of the music market. If you
want to promote your music, it’s difficult to cut through the noise and be
noticed by the media. Bloggers are on the search for the latest content;
therefore by running your music on the blog, you are converting their fans to
yours automatically. Tell a story with your music worth listening to and put
your music above the rest with an impactful and inspiring story, remember, it’s
all about establishing a relationship with these bloggers, making it easier for
them to cover your story and feature you on their platform.

To advance further and faster in the music industry and make your music a long-lasting Money Making Machine, then read this:
In today’s music industry, releasing a song and getting the right reception for it, isn’t as easy as A, B, and C. It’s more complicated. The battle between singles vs albums isn’t getting colder and the market for singles is still leading and might continue to do so, for obvious reasons.
Albums has been a heated debate for years in the music industry, so to be
ahead, you need to know how to market and distribute your single successfully while
considering the pros of releasing an album.
Almost every music streaming platforms are more interested in singles. Radio stations for one, Boomplay, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. The list goes on. This era, knowing what your fans want on one hand, and what your music needs on the other is the line between being an upcoming and becoming a star!
Few other platforms welcome all kinds of music. CeFlix Tunes, the leading gospel music platform in Nigeria, takes on all kinds of gospel music, whether it’s a single or an album. They’ve got you covered as an artist.
comes to music, momentum is everything. Releasing singles gives you that
momentum you need to blow!
one song is easier and effective than pushing an album, but don’t think for one
second that it’s that simple. Both options have their pros and cons.
Cardi B, Drake are known to release singles first and build anticipation with
this move, then finally release their albums. By this time, they have set-up a rolling
hype curve that puts their albums on a fiery snowball.
You need to understand the marketing style of music. Most artists make the grave mistake of releasing a single then months later releasing the video…the hype for the song has already grown cold so the video is just a waste of your resources. Music videos are important when pushing a single, and the next thing to go on for is an aggressive follow up on social media and shows/events.
