As a songwriter-publisher in the community, I'd love to know how you upcoming artists choose to build your fanbase. No need to reveal your "hidden gems", but please feel free to share what you please about the strategy you choose to grow the amount of fans who support your Spotify music.
From my experience, telling friends and family and promoting Spotify links on other social media platforms always works. But what about new people you dont know who may be interested in coming along for the ride?
I've signed a single record deal about a year ago (minor and just for promotion) that landed me about 150 out of the 200 Spotify followers I currently create for, but how would you reccommend reaching that next tier of followers?
Recently, I established an independent publishing company affiliated with BMI and I'm pushing hard to make my mark in the music industry as independent as possible, however possible.
I'd love to hear what you guys have to think! :)
