Hi guys, since i'm an active musician I wanted to share a method with you that will increase your (or your future clients) iTunes sales. You can add your own twists to it and sell this as a service to musicians/bands. Be creative and try to offer them a new website or a social media service in addition to this and you can make some good online/offline money. What are we going to do? The method is mostly based on the social network ReverbNation. It's a website where you can either register as an artist or as a fan/venue/label. Musicians can upload their songs over there and sell them iTunes. ReverbNation has local, national and international chart categories for all individual music genres. This guide will show you how to get your band at least into the top ten in your area. This will course a significant increase in the bands/musicians exposure and therefore drive their iTunes sales. What do we need? 1) ReverbNation band account 2) Your band needs to have: Facebook page, twitter account, youtube channel 3) An iTunes song/album release (otherwise your traffic can't convert) 4) AddMeFast account or anything similar to it If you have everything ready, let's start: 1) Access your ReverbNation artist account and go to â€žAccount" and then select â€žSocial Sync" from the left sidebar. 2) Sync your bands facebook page, twitter account and youtube channel with your ReverbNation profile. 3) Start to add Facebook page likes, twitter followers and youtube subscribers from AddMeFast or buy them here in the market place. So, how did we benefit from the above steps? ReverbNation determines your chart rank by your â€žBand Equity Points". Your band equity grows with the number of fans, plays and profile visits. The awesome thing: After syncing your social networks ReverbNation counts EVERY facebook page like, twitter follower and youtube subscriber to your fan count. That's the way to boost your band equity and therefore your chart rank. And a better chart rank results in more plays and profile visits which also increases your band equity! See, it's a circle, isn't it? I'm not adding fans 24/7 to stay on chart rank #1 the entire time but every now and then I give everything a boost to keep a place in the top ten at least. This graph shows you a 60 day period and you can clearly see where I started using my method again (unfortunately I can't upload larger pics): And least but not least - my royalties (note: album/track sales are iTunes and Amazon mp3 sales, streams are Spotify streams): Twists: 1) If you're serious about your career and you want to invest: Use Facebook and twitter ads instead of AMF. 2) Same with youtube: You can buy subscribers but if you want high quality, interacting user you should make a good music video and promote that to naturally gain subscribers. If you work for a client, offer them to produce the video 3) You can either use this method for your own musical activities or - as I mentioned earlier - offer it as a service to musicians/bands. I do both I admit, it's a very simple method but maybe some of you can use it. Feel free to ask questions.
