What strategies, tips and tricks are there for electronic music producers (EDM) to gain a following?
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.
Im an edm producer too (hence thy name^^)... anyways just post comments on skrillex vids saying that you are a producer and they should check your stuff out... I did that and I gained a decent following... (couple thousand) and then try to get on monstercat media
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 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.
