Social Media for Music – Are you Doing it Wrong?

Social Media for Music - Are you Doing it Wrong?


What if I told you you’re probably not “doing” social media right?


That everything you thought you were supposed to do… you should NOT do?


….And the very thing you SHOULD do – feels completely counter-intuitive?



Let’s see here…. have you been doing any of THESE?

  1. Inviting all your personal friends & family to ‘like’ your page?
  2. Inviting all the people you went to high-school with & people you barely know to ‘like’ and “follow” your page?
  3. Begging people to “PLEASE LIKE & SHARE!!!!” every time you post your song?
  4. Not getting much traction building your fanbase online?
  5. Been using your personal profile for music (a BIG no-no!)?
  6. Wondering why you’re getting no engagement and people don’t see your posts? (it’s not because Facebook is evil or trying to scam you)
  7. Wondering how you can get more fans on your Facebook page and turn that into income?


Here’s the thing.


Social media is here to stay and the world is never going back to the way it was.



Either you are the kind of musician who decides to understand HOW to make social media work for your music, how to actually build a fanbase and a legitimate income with your music using this incredible tool…


…..or you won’t and you’ll be left behind in your knowledge and your skill, and your music will be buried with the rest of the talented artists who aren’t willing to step it up and learn this.



Those are the musicians I call the 98%.



They are genuinely talented, but don’t have the guts, the grit, or the tenacity to learn new stuff that will get them somewhere.


They want it all done for them (lazy).


Guess what, in the New Music Industry, you need to make your own bed.


You need to do it yourself.


The ball is in your court.


It’s called liberty.


You either view this as the greatest opportunity in the world, or you view it as a burden because it means more work for you.


I choose to view it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


And it’s brought me success in my own music.


Another thing: If you make music, you’re actually in business for yourself.


If you were to launch your own Subway franchise tomorrow, you would need to invest in some tools, some skills, and knowledge so that on launch day your sandwich shop could actually stay open, make people happy, and so you could stay in business.



Most musicians are silly:


They won’t bat an eyelash at dropping $10,000 in the studio, but completely RESIST spending a tiny fraction of that to learn how to actually market their music.


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…


If you have no fanbase to market your music TO, your time and money spent in the studio was completely in vain.


Unless you want to be a basement artist, then go for it. 🙂


If music is nothing but a hobby and you have no interest in selling CDs, no interest in gaining a worldwide audience who recognizes you and gives your music the appreciation it deserves… then you definitely DON’T want to learn any marketing skills.


If you’re totally happy and content being a BROKE musician who is unknown in your genre, then you definitely DON’T want to increase your skill and knowledge of social media, Facebook particularly!


If, however, you know that music is part of your calling in life (even if it’s only part-time)…. then you need to increase your knowledge in how to promote your music online – the SMART way.


This is where the rubber meets the road.



Hundreds of social media platforms come and go, but Facebook is here to stay and it’s the one place you need to be to truly skyrocket your success.



Why? It’s where your fans are. This is where they mostly hang out.


I’ve been testing and experimenting with all kinds of strategies on my own music page and I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt…..


……the $80,000 I made just in digital royalties last year happened because I figured out how to strategically use FACEBOOK to turn complete strangers into my die-hard SUPERFANS.


That’s how I did it.


If you want to do what I’m doing and learn what I’m learning… then you definitely want this mini-course will show you exactly WHAT TO DO and WHAT NOT TO DO on Facebook to


  • build a super-targeted audience that goes bonkers for your music
  • build your own tribe and music-evangelists who promote you to everyone they know
  • like, follow, and share your music organically (without you sounding like a desperate beggar)
  • actually translate casual visitors into new fans who buy your music on day 1



Decide now, which kind of musician are you?

The kind that says, “I’m just going to do what I’ve always done,” and 12 months later wonders why they STILL don’t have a following, why they STILL aren’t making any CD sales, and getting no engagement…?



…..Or are you the kind of musician who decides to get ahead of the game and rides this wave of phenomenal social media exposure?



Yes!!! That is what I thought. (Usually the people who read my articles that I talk to are highly intelligent, talented, and hard-working. They just need to be pointed in the right direction.)


Now is the time to gain the skill and knowledge you need to take advantage of the best music tool on planet earth.
