    Hello Blackhatters,

    I have been a member of this forum for a while now and have learn't many different black hat methods. Recently I have started to take a white hat approach in a new field. For the last 4 years I've been making my income through black hat internet marketing whilst doing live music on the side. Now I want to mix both my marketing skills with my music. Has anyone had any experience promoting themselves (as an artist) through Facebook?

    I have managed to get over 100 real, highly engaged likes on my page so far. I can see a huge difference between active highly engaged followers on my music page in comparison to the likes I have received on other business pages. Has anyone got any tips or methods to help further promote my page to people who may like my music (IE Highly engaged likes)? I have used a few black hat methods to promote the page, but I don't like doing black hat methods whilst using my real name, as I'm sure you lot will understand.

    Some of the methods I have used are:

    • Inviting all friends.
    • Getting friends to invite friends.
    • Sharing my page
    • Getting friends to share my page
    • Inviting friends from fake Facebook accounts (Worked quite well)
    • Commenting on artists fan page posts with similar music then voting to top. (Top comments)

    This is my page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Thomas-Bainbridge/1486491238262598

    I have an acoustic musical style using a loop pedal.

    All help will be greatly appreciated and hopefully can help other artists looking for the same answers.

    Thanks for your replies. In the OP I didn't make it clear what the purpose of this thread was. Basically I am looking for ideas on how to gain more likes which will engage with the content I upload, and once they've liked the page, how to keep them interacting with it.

    For example, with a designer clothes page you could post, "Like and share for a chance to win £100 voucher to spend on our brand" or whatever. I would do this with music, but I can't see anyone getting that excited about free music when lets face it, who pays for MP3's anymore?

    I think the main factor of success for a musician is content.
    You should create and promote more viral content especially on youtube.
    One of my favorite case-stydies is Hadouken! band.
    They create inspiration videos from other people videos (the most popular series — PEOPLE ARE AWESOME) and use their own music in these videos. This how Hadouken! promote their songs.
    I think you can use this method.
    Other idea is to create cover versions of popular songs — it always work

    The best way for you to grow, is to invest at least $2 a day and set up custom audience ads on Facebook.
