Ways To Get Your Music Noticed And Get Myspace Plays And Views

Mar 4, 2008
As an up and coming musical artist, there are many things to keep in mind and to consider as you strive to build up your reputation and develop a fan base. Before you decide which venue to perform at and way before you decide which Malibu summer home you want, first things first: you have to get noticed.

It is no longer enough to perform at the local hotspot such as the coffee shop or underground music scene to get the word out about your music and band. With the advent of social networking sites like Myspace and the development of podcasts and other such options, the budding musician has many opportunities and obligations.

It does not really matter how good your band is, how inspiring the lyrics are, or how innovative the sound; if your music is not being noticed then you are still a "nobody". Many find it difficult to go out there and get recognition for their work and the major reason for this is that they simply do not know how to get their music noticed.

Promotion is really the key here as it allows the band and their music to reach a wide audience. If you reach an audience that would otherwise remain oblivious to your music then the promotion is working. There are a variety of promotional tools and options available from the basic word of mouth to using sites such as Myspace, Youtube, and Facebook.

Myspace, in particular, is gaining popularity with the music crowd as Indie performers and mainstream performers alike are beginning to understand just how important this peer networking site has become. Using Myspace's innovative section designed for musicians, gaining notice and recognition is quickly becoming easy; as long as it is used correctly and to its full ability.

With Myspace, bands are able to keep track of the amount of times their songs are being played and how often their profiles are being viewed. Generally, the higher these numbers, the more popular the song and band are. Most guests to Myspace pages are more inclined to listen and view to bands with higher view and listen numbers than to those with small numbers. The reason for this is that it is believed, and correctly so, that the more listens, the better the music. Instead of passing over your songs, when guests see a high count they will be more likely to take notice and listen to what you have to offer.

For this reason, it is important to keep your music fresh and updated so that when guests return they will be greeted by something new. If they become bored as to what the band has to offer, then they will be less and less likely to return. Being noticed is just one step as retaining that recognition will take patience and diligence.

Having your music noticed is one of the greatest times for a musician and band. Fortunately there are services and software that no longer just work with the major labels and artists but now work with many Indies'. Just be sure to use one that is trustworthy and proven!

Gaining that needed notice just takes a keen eye for the tools that are readily available and designed to gather listens and long term fans who will keep coming back to your site again and again.
