I originally was going to do a music guide entirely in news posts but I decided to instead do an audio course! I will upload them soon!
I'm doing these guides to help bring you the stuff that has helped me get to where I am in music production. I'm gonna try to do a bunch of these audio guides, in a series, each where I talk about a different aspect of music making.
My First guide is up! Give it a listen, it's about what I do to deal with writer's block!
Spread it around if you like it! Gimme a shout out if you hate it.
MINI COURSE ON EXPOSURE:
IS TOP 5 REALLY THE ANSWER TO MUSIC EXPOSURE?
I got top weekly twice and now I feel empty. lol
You may say you have no idea where to submit your music for exposure, I have been finding cool little places for a while. let me share some of my ideas with you.
1) create a facebook account, and an ilike account. upload your songs to ilike. get the ilike application on facebook. send your songs on your ilike to all your friends on your facebook. add every friend from the peopel you may know list daily.
this is 500 people who listen to my song every time i upload, without much effort at all. most of these guys I know in real life. its more people everyday. i just delete any friends who complain its spam XD
2) upload your tracks to youtube. use cute title slides, and credits with links to the rest of your pages that are relevant. This is by far the most time consuming. I've been doing 1 video a day. Go see my youtube videos for an example of this. as you become more popular, the number of views will skyrocket.
3) myspace. yeah myspace blows ass, but keep adding friends, updating your songs here. put some info about yourself. a cute header picture. some pics. this is a place for your fans to look when they become interested in you
that's everything I've been doing for music exposure. save making the song themselves. lol
