If you are on the creative side (like acting, music, dance) and you want to be famous then sites like facebook, MySpace and Twitter are the best way to go about doing the same. However, Twitter seems to be the ‘in-thing’ these days. Nearly everyone who has an internet connection seems to be on twitter. So, no better way than to launch your music but on Twitter
So, let’s gets going
Getting started: Signing up on Twitter is no rocket science. All you have to do is go to the Twitter web page and go to the ‘sign in’ link. The page will sign you in thru a step by step process. It is really very easy. If you are a solo artist, you can log in thru your own name. But, if you have a band, it’s better if you sign in with the name of your band. That’s how your whole band will get recognized and there will be no animosity between band members
Write a proper bio on your new Twitter site: If you are bad at writing bios…. especially small ones with just 160 characters that Twitter allows you to (something that the band is never good at), you can always take the help of a friend or associate. The next best thing to do is to use the different search engines on the net and find something that you can write as a bio. Or even better, get a professional to do it. Just remember that the bio has to be short, sweet and catchy. This will definitely get a lot of attention
Start tweeting: Once your twitter account is in place, you need to add your friends to the list. Once you do that, you can invite their friends to your account. The more…the merrier. The best way to get people to follow you is by following them. You need to tweet wisely. Like any other relationship, get personal with them but don’t go overboard. You need to be fun loving and concerned but not boring. The best way is to join a conversation. That way, the person on the opposite end will get to know you personally without getting too pushy.
Keeping fans updated: You can upload a few pictures and videos of the band while recording so your fans can get a good vibe. Record your interviews. Answer every question that is tweeted for you. Apologize to a fan that you might have hurt. Thank every well-wisher. Be special by making them feel special. That’s how you will increase your fan base. You need to go thru this especially during the initial phase of your music career. You need to remind them about a particular tour and inform them about releases of your albums or the launch of your music cd so they get a chance to meet you personally.
Remember this: The initial years won’t be easy. But by following the steps above, it won’t take you long to be one of the best in the music industry. This is a great tactic alongside email music marketing.
