    Social media marketing (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) is a great tip in my opinion.

    Find a lot of different blogs that will review your album/project and start having them link back to you. Link back to them using social networks so that people can see the reviews people are leaving you. Twitter is a really great way to promote your brand, and I would suggest Follower Wonk for a good way to get some metrics on your audience and tweak your marketing plan.

    You got to be good music producer man. Xilent, Skrillex is your standard. You could be a famous dj if your mixes are good as tydi. Been in the music production game for 5 years. Pretty hard. lols!

    Make a weekly podcast on youtube with your favorite top 10 realeases for that week...drop one of your productions in the mix!!
    Put two seperate download links in the description; 1 for your mix & 1 for your song.

    Upload your music on soundcloud & mixcloud and make sure people can download your mixes and songs.

    You could make some tutorials on what kind of software and Vst's u use in your production or how did you make that Phat Bass in one of your songs and stuff like that :D people love that ...

    Make a list of Labels/dj's/producers that have similar taste in music like you and search them on Twitter,Facebook etc.



    good luck mate ;)

    Great tips so far guys! I'm sure this will help a lot of people including me. I purchased a quality Pioneer DJ set to start making mixes which I will release on YouTube.

    I'm thinking of making tutorials as well but I'd like to build up a following of 'actual' fans rather than a lot of producers, although Jordan Mencel built up quite the following that way giving away preset packs and such.
