    So, I`m a small singer 300K on YouTube, I finished my first original song and thought about VEVO but the thing is
    they don`t allow people from some countries to use it. Bad luck for me as I live in one of those countries, I thought about
    some proxies or like an IP changer software.

    You`re going to say that I don`t need a VEVO to get more views and stuff, it`s not about the views honestly it`s about VEVO
    just knowing that I have a VEVO channel with my original song on it, it would be amazing. I guess it`s a dream I have.. :(
    but the country restriction ruined it.

    Any help,tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Don't fret so much over VEVO, my suggestion.

    Just create a strong BRAND for yourself and let viral & word of mouth spread your videos like friendly online viruses!

    Donald Trump has a nice book on personal branding!

    P.S. I hope you're using itunes affiliate links in the description (5-8% CTR from my tests)!
    P.S.S. FB + Twitter Integration as well? You're the man then!

    FB+Twitter yes iTunes no, I understand you have to pay something to get ur songs on iTunes? or maybe I`m wrong I have the software installed but seems useless since I can`t post my music on iTunes without paying.

    Go to wikipedia and check about VEVO. The info implies that your songs must be first contracted to the major labels as mentioned before VEVO will pay attention to your songs and video clips.

    I say D-I-Y. Try contacting the people at thepiratebay.se. They welcome indie people provided that they're allowed to 'pirated' the songs. It's a win-win situation. You can to promote your songs and they get what they want.

    I always download from TPB and I saw a lot of indie bands promoted at the homepage, Idk though if they`ll take my song. My songs are mainly Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars covers, so... I do JB covers because I get more traffic because of the people that search for that kid every minute.

    So... yeah but if you guys know any other kind of promoting my music that would be great. And I`ll try with Piratebay see what I can get.
