SONG PITCHING
Your marketing strategy will encompass both attracting new fans and engaging with existing ones. Pitching your artists’ song to playlist curators can give you up to 50% growth of listeners and streams. You can find a list of Spotify curators here or you can access a few playlists on SubmitHub for a small fee. You should write different type of texts about the artist and music you are going to release so that you can not only pitch the song to playlists but also to radio shows, magazines or sync options.

FAN’S ATENTION
Keeping in touch with fans online requires unique and exciting content that you should schedule with the help of a music marketing calendar. Build up the hype three weeks before release with your pre-save link in every post and invite fans to the creative process.

NEW POSSIBILITIES
With increased engagement and attention from previous posts you can drop an image video, merch, or interviews associated to the new single. Don’t forget to mention your smart link in every announcement.

BUILD A VISUAL IDENTITY

MEASURE SUCCESS
Music marketing is crucial to your success, but it’s also a process of trial and error. The more campaigns you run, the more you can hone your strategies and create more specific and detailed plans. Depending on your goals you should review and reflect on what went well and what could have gone better like numbers of Followers across DSPs, Social media engagement rates, overall streaming numbers or merch and ticket sales.
