HOW TO GET YOUR MUSIC HEARD
Music Business is a business and the right strategy and execution makes the difference
Your friends and family are not a valid source of opinion. Strangers will give you unbiased feedback that is vital in building your audience. Get real feedback from people across the globe
BDS (Broadcast Data System) is a monitoring system that all major radio stations and record label use to measure music plays aka spins. It is like your credit report in the music business to analyze how your song is doing.
DJ's are vital in getting your music to the masses and building a demand for it. In clubs, radio and parties is where DJ's play and how records are broken.
Playing a record multiple times and consistently ensures that people hear your music and pay attention to it. People listen to music at different times throughout the day.
Artists Without Fans is like a Business without Customers
Businesses operate by the "supply & demand" principle. If there is no demand then there is no need for a supply which translates if you are an artist but have no fans then what is the point of your music?
Building a fanbase requires strategy, consistency and exposure. It means to build your brand by speaking to people's curiosity, you have to get them to come to you, if you have to push yourself onto them, you will lose that game.
Being "persistent" but not "pestering". There is a very fine line between the two.

As an artist performing and being out is VITAL to your career. This is how you build a fanbase and connect with your audience. Social media is NOT a substiute, it is merely a tool to keep your acquired fans attached to your brand.
Build an audience for your music.
66 Raw has special custom programs that allows you to build an audience for your music.
In order for people to know who you are they need to hear your music and with millions of listeners you need to saturate your "spins" so that more people can hear it and several times.
A few spins here and there won't catch the attention of many listeners because trends start by repetition over a short period a time, so that they pay attention and remember.
