This specific article is aimed at underground artists in particular.
Many underground artists have talent. Sometimes, they even sound better than many mainstream artists. Some of them artists are well known and even very much respected on their local scene.
Unfortunately, nobody gives a fuck about them-out of their hometown.
Sad to say, but many artists don’t take the time needed to think about their promotion.
Today I have listed several advices aimed at underground artists who struggle to make it in the harsh hip hop game:
– first of all, you gotta think twice before you choose your manager. You must find the right person, because the manager is the key person who can lead you to the top -or let you stay at a very low level (in case you chose the wrong one ).
Also, there must be a good chemistry between you and your manager. If you don’t feel the dude, simply don’t hire him.
-besides your manager, try to surround yourselves with the right persons who actually dig your music and who will take you to the next level with their enthusiasm and promotion.
– use the internet as a powerful promotion tool. Never forget that the internet will allow you to get noticed from the world rapidly. A well built website is determinant in your future success. I have visited so many artistic websites that were not made the right way.
If you have enough financial means and youâ€˜re not really computer savvy , you can choose a professional to build up your website.
You can also choose servers that will allow you to build your website in a very simple way.
However, there is one detail you should not forget about: it is useless to have a professional looking website if your content is badly handled. Don’t forget that the person people want to hear about is you. It is always useful to include a personal biography besides your musical biography. Also, never neglect your discography: it is like your curriculum vitae. People are always curious to know about your work and artistic collaborations.
One frequent mistake is not to add any audio track to your website. That’s really disappointing when a visitor who came to explore your music doesn’t have access to your musical files.
Don’t spend your time complaining about your lack of success, rather don’t neglect details that can push you forward to the next level.
You have talent? Talent is something, but it ain’t everything. You gotta work out your marketing strategies if your want to give your music a real chance to get noticed.
