    Hello, long story short. I used to make music covers when I was little like 16 years old and back then Twitter was A LOT easier. I used to drive quite a lot of traffic. I stopped sadly to continue my studies. Now, theres quite a lot to read so sorry, but please do so and maybe you can help me. Thanks!


    Now, again at 20 years old I have spent a little over 3000 dollars on music equipment and created my two EPs which in my opinion at least 2-3 songs are viral worthy, but as you guessed it, no one gives a shit even though the WORK it took me to create the songs was... WOW. The other work to create the videos in AE was BEYOND WOW, but whatever, lets get to the subject.

    I have 250 dollars to spare NOW and more in the upcoming months (50-100 dollars every month), I am not a newbie in the BH methods but not advanced either. I have been on YT since 2012. I have a channel with 2k subs and 30k views so far. My social networks are dry and weak. I am ready to try services, but Im not ready to do something on my own (bots, SEO, etc), not anymore, after all this work, Im just tired of working EVEN MORE.

    Now for what I want to achieve:
    RECOGNITION, not money, not product sales or aff. links, just recognition, thats all I care about. Fans that lead to power that lead to fame.

    So, with all this in mind, what path do you suggest I should take? It would be great if the service or method you recommended was also sold by members here in BHW marketplace. Thanks a lot!

    Shit, I forgot to mention, sorry. I make electro/pop and classical music. An EP is made out of 3-4 pop songs and usually 2 classical songs. Also sometimes I make pop rockish songs if that makes sense.

    I like people that are going for the money.

    Recognition/fame is just weak.

    I LOVE money too, so dont get me wrong, BUT what are money good for if my talent is wasted. I worked SO HARD, lost nights, got sick because of it "but in the end it doesnt even matter" because its impossible to get out of the unknown with just talent. You know what they say about doing something because YOU HAVE TO "If it feels wrong, it probably is!"

    I will try to advertise my channel/videos in other similar youtube videos channels. Advertising at $0.01 per click you will get a good amount of real and targeted views from that budget. I think you should also work on instagram and snapchat. In both you can place short clips of your music.

    So basically I should rather choose to advertise LEGALLY with white hat on YT and other Social Networks and pay Adwords? I thought of buying fake views from residential IPs and add with them a lot of likes and comments, though I dont know if that would get me the desired result.

    I`d like to get around 100 views per day WITHOUT doing anything. Thats my current objective. I`m getting around 4-5 views so far on a single video that has over 8k views the other videos have 1k-3k and get nothing, maybe 1 view per month.

    Take all that talent you claim to have and redirect it all towards making money (do it legally, don't risk your freedom)

    That's just my advice, no need to take it to heart :)

    Thanks, but I dont need money. I`ve got all I need from crypto, at least for now. I can pay my rent and live decent. I`ve spent ALL my savings into music so I`d at least want some recognition back, cuz money is all but a dream in the music industry. You cant make money, only SPEND money and that`s a fact sadly.

    Connect with others who does music as you do. You can collaborate and go with cross-promotions. The more the better. You can also share your music to communities like Reddit or Plug.Dj. Try to spread your music across multiple channels.
