Why Music Marketing Is Deeper Than Just Promotion To Me - Hip Hop Distribution

Why Music Marketing Is Deeper Than Just Promotion To Me - Hip Hop Distribution | Wordpress For Musicians And Creatives | Scoop.it
I began to think about what music really meant to me. Why am I so drawn to working on music marketing? What keeps my spirit content with what I am doing? After being asked why I do this, I really wanted to define for myself what music marketing led me to. I no longer wanted scattered reasoning for myself as to why I love this, I really wanted to define its importance to me as a reminder to be true to myself and work harder on my craft.
Mario Mendoza's insight:

This article took alot of soul searching but after all is said and done, it is great to see why you love doing something.

Mario Mendoza's insight:

You stated it perfectly with "Social stats should only be used to support the strategic rationale, rather than lead it" I see way too many brands using the opposite approach and seems like their default rationale would be it was for shock value when audiences questions why this brand and artist are together. No long term vision.

Entering Song Contests Can Increase Your Traffic - WordPress For Musicians

Entering Song Contests Can Increase Your Traffic - WordPress For Musicians | Wordpress For Musicians And Creatives | Scoop.it
Recently a friend of mine was brainstorming with me in regards to blog topics for his music website. We discussed the typical events, songs, lyrics and random thoughts as potential posts. Then I stumbled across a relevant contest that sounded like fun. Can song contests help with increasing your followers? It sure can if your effort is there.
Mario Mendoza's insight:

By entering a sample flip contest I realized that the main thing missing from my SoundCloud promotion was engagement. Seeking out others and creating relationships with like minded individuals. Enjoy the song contest and introduce others to your music and your website.

Ello. If you haven't heard of it yet you would have without my help. The media needs a new social networking topic and Ello is perfect.
Mario Mendoza's insight:

Really don't know how this social network will pan out with music artists as it is embarking on an new audience with a distaste for too much promotion. Love the idea of the social network but don't know how artists will tastefully use it. So many artists on Twitter and Facebook overdue their promotion so I hope they don't continue those approaches there as well.
