    Hi,

    I've tried to find a way to make music online. I'm a producer that usually creates EDM tracks but also pop etc ( this is not my job ) I've been producent music for over 7 years and my music sounds professional and "fresh".

    For a long time I tried fiverr. I've tried youtube and other services that publishes your music on iTunes store etc, but no luck. I've also tried to apply as a freelancer but no answers.

    Any serious ideas is appreciated! :)

    You need to get yourself noticed and build a following. Have you anything on soundcloud, do you have a facebook account, twitter etc. Do you have a blog where you can put a player on to showcase your tracks. Give away free downloads on your blog etc.

    Thanks for the reply! Yes. I have 3.5k followers on Facebook. I'm on SoundCloud too. I guess my point is that i in someway want to send someone my music, if they like it they'll give me an offer. Guess that's not possible to find any.

    get into instagram, grow a large following (100k+) and then promote your music and yourself via that, become part of the product.

    repeat on multiple social networks and combine that with good music and hard work, and then viola.


    Heard of an idiot rapper called "stitches" apparently that's how he got his start via social media especially via IG.

    your music and your life, make you part of the product.
    You know those IG models promoting fit-tea and crap like that? be like that but with your life and music.

    -take good photos and videos
    -engage with people
    -keep them updated
    -show them how you make your music
    -show only short clips of songs you've made and then prompt them to visit your youtube/soundcloud/website/whatever.
    -learn video editing to create cool videos. (instagram is very much a visual social medium)

    take insperation from guys like this:

    Dont post crap photos or low quality videos, NO SHAKY VIDEOS EITHER.

    learn about instagram engagement groups too, they will help grow your account.
