Promoting a music blog is essential for any independent musician or band. It's much easier to promote an independent band's music blog that a major label band blog. Many indie artists and bands wonder if it is worth the effort to create and maintain a music blog. The simple answer is: absolutely!

Indie bands tend to concentrate more on music blogs, while hip-hop DJs and radio promotions have always concentrated their efforts on radio promotion. This may sound strange as both mediums seem very different. The rise of social media has allowed indie bands to use both radio and blogs in new ways. Indie bands need to promote their music blogs for a few reasons.

Social networking, as it is with music blogs, allows you to connect with your fans in a more personal manner than you would with a record label or radio station. You can interact face-to-face with your fans. Even if you don't personally post on their page, fans can read what they have to say. This is particularly important for social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter where followers can receive immediate updates from someone who may not be able to respond to their direct messages.

A benefit to soundcloud promotion is the fact that social media platforms are constantly evolving and becoming friendlier for bloggers. In the past, it was very difficult to get published on popular social networking pages. However, smaller social networks such as Twitter and Google+ have allowed more music blogs to be featured on these platforms. This has lead to a situation whereby large record labels now have to work harder to attract bloggers are, therefore, having more access to music marketing opportunities.

Mixtapes, which are short musical clips, are growing in popularity on Soundcloud. Mixtapes are music that people have created. Companies are now listening to the tracks to determine if they would like to be featured in an ad. Mixtapes, which are becoming increasingly popular on YouTube and vice versa for music blog promotion and placements, are also very well-liked.

A music blog can be used to encourage other people on Facebook and twitter to follow your account, so that they are updated about new posts and track listing. Although you won't have the ability to market yourself on Facebook or Twitter, you can keep in touch with your followers and fans, which is vital for the former. Many people prefer to keep in touch with their friends and family via social media, which is why keeping an open line with them on Facebook and Twitter is important. Your fans will also feel a connection with you. This is crucial in getting people to visit your music blog, mixtapes and eventually to get email contact from your.

Facebook and its sister social media sites have finally become popular with millions of people joining every month. With all the creepy commercial messages you have to put up with on TV and in magazines, as well as the ever-present nannies looking to steal your heart away from your children, you could seriously benefit from starting a page on Facebook for music marketing and promotions. This platform is still best suited for radio promotions. But, it's safer to be safe than sorry when there are the risks of being abused by strangers on Facebook.

Last but not least, it is important to update your status regularly and post links to your songs. Twitter is essential because of this. Twitter can be used to interact with fans and potential fans. You can also view the latest posts. It also means you don't need to worry about sending out dozens of messages every single day to try to promote your music. If you use a Facebook page or a Twitter account for your promotions, you won't even need to send out more than two messages a day, and that's if you want to update your fans with new material, not track new comments made.
