OK so you’re a good artist, but how do you become a great one? What are the secrets which make stars stand out from the crowd? Yes lots of this is related to dressing well, taking care of yourself and looking good however what makes real ‘star quality’? The answer is confidence and self belief. You can have all the talent in the world but without that quietly confident swag, you are nobody. That might sound harsh and it’s not meant to. It’s just the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Of course you are! Each and every singer, rapper, musician on earth wants to get a record deal and if they tell you otherwise, they are lying. Gaining recognition and fame goes hand in hand with talent. Its all about having the right positive mental attitude, about looking good and about self belief. Confident people attract admirers like a moth to a flame. Ever met a really open, fun, friendly and charismatic person who might not be the best looking but are oozing charm? You know that way they made you feel really good? Well that person can be you. No matter who you are and where you are from, the right attitude and being seen in the right places with the right people is just as important as the talent you have. It’s a dog eat dog world out there in the music business. Be ready and stand tall and strong.
Your fans are your livelihood. Getting as many fans as possible on your mailing list and marketing yourself as a ‘brand’ is your goal. When you have a real and loyal set of fans, you can afford to give up the day job and concentrate on what you love. Imagine being your own boss and doing what you love forever. Now that’s life!
A life that is possible for you. Its important to not just think of your self as a rapper, or singer. You are an entrepreneur. You are running a business. If you treat it as a business, you will get business results. If you treat it as a hustle you will get hustle results. You can get all the information in the world, but you have to take action. Always remember what you don’t know, is not what hurts you, its what you do know that’s hurting you. Everything that you know now has gotten you to where you are today. Don’t be afraid to expand your mind. “The more you learn, the more you earn”. You are more valuable to yourself and everyone around you, when you grow. You grow by learning. You are a talented artist, and you deserve to live off your music… You Need Fans! So go and learn how you can get them.
One of the best ways for unsigned music artists to get a breakthrough to fame and success in the music industry is through online musical talent promotional sites. It is not necessary for all talented musicians or singers to be million-dollar platinum successes like Carrie Underwood or One Direction. It is possible for unsigned music artists to enjoy a good income by selling their music or songs on the Internet. There are millions of web users who would be willing to pay a few bucks to download some new song in the market even if the singer may be unknown in the music industry. These few bucks add up to a fair bit for an unknown artist even without being famous on the high streets. Online promotional platforms charge a small fee to upload the unknown music as long as it is original.
Good responses from the web community may lead on to greater opportunities such as recording of song by record companies. These platforms would assist the budding artists in securing recording opportunities with reputable recording companies if the song is very well received by the web community. However, there is a need to secure the necessary copyright licence to be protected from infringement of copyrights in case there is a dispute.
Some of these promotion sites offer free services until the song makes a profit where others charge a small upload service fee. There are other sites that allow unsigned music artists to promote their musical talents or music by placing an online ad at their web pages. ClickBank sites offer free services where a certain number of clicks on other online ads entitle unsigned artists a free ad display.
