    Hi there guys

    I'm a musician looking for new ways to promote my music. Around a year ago I uploaded a few music videos on youtube and they now have around 1Million views. Today I realized; why didn't I put a link to my soundcloud page in the description!? Maybe even start a website so soundcloud won't get my traffic!? Maybe the click through rate is bad (just picked up the term here on black hat world, quick learner eh :) ) but I think the traffic is good because I can choose what artists I wanna be connected to... So I'll go with this. Unless you have a better idea for promotion, you're welcome to tell me :)


    TL;DR :

    I would like someone to upload songs by certain artists on youtube. I will tell you what songs from what albums as we are in contact. Mostly indie songs. If you know a way to get the video bigger than the most popular version on youtube; you're extra welcome to PM me :)

    Im looking for a long term relationship with someone serious! Haha, that sounded like an ad on match. Anyway: You have good experience in SEO and with working with others. I will only reply to serious presentations!


    The pay is good.



    Cheers
    Musician

    I'm confused. Do you want someone to write SEO articles? 'Cause I can do that, for as long as you need me to. Unfortunately, though, I can't help you with the YouTube stuff.

    You don't want SEO, You want promotion!
    Throw mud at a wall some will stick. (But does it stick in the right place?)
    Target your marketing to get better results.
    Choices?
    Throw mud?
    Push your targets face in a bucket of it?

    Your choice!

    I second oxonbeef ... but you may need all of these to get your own site and then promote it :


    A website (probably a wp based website)
    Pull videos from youtube or soudcloud and/or wherever you want to
    Get some seo done (may not be necessary as you'll be using social media to throw the shit)
    Hire someone to promote your videos
    Watch the money roll in

    Hope this helps you .....

    I agree, you might not need a ton of SEO. I personally would go with some good old fashioned viral marketing. Have your soundcloud link on the youtube videos and also have a link to a facebook fanpage and twitter account. Get a nice facebook fanpage with some scripts to help it go viral and also have a link to your youtube channel, twitter account and soundcloud.

    This way you can gain subscribers, followers and fans, and have the traffic bounce between all the accounts to help it build. Then make good tweets and status updates and watch the traffic come in.

    Sounds like a plan. Except I wanna make music, not marketing. Thus my post here. :) I'll read your PM.
    What's wp based btw?

    "Watch the money roll in" Haha, I haven't even thought about this aspect.. I was just planning of building a fan base. How do you monetize from having listeners? Nobody wanna pay for music, right?


    I guess you are right! I like the metaphore :) But do you really think my youtube idea is too 'pushy'?

    I updated you account with 10.000, 20.000, 30.000, etc... contacts for shared your music, also this promotion generated hundreds of followers, coments, etc... PM for Price (The contacts always you are going to have them, never are lost).

    I run many campaigns for indie and mainstream musicians. Most are based on Youtube, Facebook fan pages, Twitter, Sound Cloud and blogs, or any combination of that.

    I have helped "start up" indie artist sell 1000's of downloads, build up fans bases of hundreds of thousands.

    I sent my details via PM. I am UK and US based.

    You might want to get your song in top 5 in the bill board top 100, then your song should go viral by itself.You don't have to do any promotion, you just have to produce good music.

    And once u are famous, go on tv and say bhw is the best forum, and bhw owners will pay you big bucks.Or you can advertise any business out there.

    Hello, I'm also looking for some help promoting a band. Don't know where to begin, we've had a website for 6 years, our youtube channel view are at 100k, but our main video is only at 19K. We need to drive traffic and grow our fan base, if anyone is able to help?


    We are a pop/rock band that sing in Spanish.

    Thanks!
