    I have a bunch of artists I promote,and I'm looking for an original way to get listeners to the music.
    YT comments, Soundcloud , Facebook, it doesn't matter as long as the end result is a targeted listener pressing play on the music.
    I am open to hire services or get ideas, anything works, and I know there's ton of information about it here but honestly this industry changes so fast that I don't know what's relevant anymore.

    Feel free to respond or to PM me.

    Spotify and SoundCloud have an advertising program. Try it and let us know.

    You're going to want the music to get shared, you can use google adwords, collabs, soundcloud reposts, get strong social media accounts, maybe some PR. Try to build a email list, or if you don't have a budget for a real campaign just get some bots and grow slowly.

    Find some hot chick clips, add your music, make several vine videos. That shit go viral. Audience will find the music if your artists are really dope

    Youtune is a search engine, and your chanel is your website
    So it needs to be optimized just like any other website
    Tags = keyords
    so do your keyword research

    Description should cotain your keywords, genre etc
    choose a few of the top chanels in your miche and put their useranme in the tags and description

    A good thumbnail is essential. Make it interesting .
    now likes subscribers and comments all count.
    There are plent of ways to get them , but dont use addefast or any of these sevices
    Google recognises them and will slap a penalty.
    Bookmarking backlinks and embeds on web 20 count

    You can be a little more daring on youtube with your backlinking as its not as strict as google serps

    You can get decent traffic to even the shittiest of videos, but it does help if its good

    There are plenty of tutorials, here on bhw
    but a lot of the WSO are nothng but bullshit

    Because your musicians are looking for a career from this
    be carefu what black hat methods you use

    Finally fb twitter and even instagram are great for branding puposes and getting you artists known.

    Fake views: Sometimes you can get away with using them but for you, id stay clear of them,

    link to your social media sites in the description and ask people to subscribe and like you video.
