Step 2: Then Twitter

It’s also useful to have a Twitter account. Share behind-the-scenes updates from your recording sessions, or some of the music or art that inspires you. Link Facebook and Twitter updates together, but remember that they have different audiences who will respond to different things.

Step 2 of 4: Step 4: Communicate clearly

Mastering communication on the web doesn’t come naturally to many, so don’t worry if your efforts don’t bear much fruit at first. You can pay for advertising on Facebook, but it’s debatable how effective this is. It doesn’t always help you forge a connection with someone.

 

Step 3 of 4: Step 5: What to give away

You may eventually want to sell your music, but to begin with you’ll probably have to give away a few tracks for free. Use this to get something else back – a point of contact, such as a ‘Like’ on Facebook. Once you’ve got that, use it to tell people how they can pay for your work.

 

Step 4 of 4: Step 6: Next steps

It’s a long road to global superstardom, and the DIY route is even longer. Tell people about your music whenever you can, and chase down every promising-sounding lead. And when you’re at the top of the charts, don’t forget which magazine helped you get started.
