Do You Know Who's Reading Your Music Blog?

Guest post by James Shotwell. This article originally appeared on Haulix

Building and retaining your audience begins with understanding who is clicking on your site.

Search the name of virtually any artist or group on social media, and you are bound to find people discussing that act. Opinions on music are a dime a dozen, and when it comes to bands, everyone already knows their value is worth even less that. Young music writers around the globe cut corners on a daily basis to be among the first to cover the latest news about the biggest acts in their area of interest. It doesn’t matter if their site has few to no visitors or if much larger publications beat them to the punch, they want to ensure that their readers learn the latest breaking news directly from them.

How To Create A Dynamic Website That Will Appeal To Your Fans (& Attract New Ones)

The heart of a musician is to make music.

From jazz to pop, punk to metal, and everything in between, a true musician is focused on their craft as often as possible. 

However, the pressures of surviving as a musician is difficult. Monetizing a passion can be frustrating and distract from the creative mindset that we’re always trying to maintain. That’s where having a good website can be critical to help with promotion while saving time for what really matters.

A website gives the world access to our music in ways that couldn’t be dreamed of a few decades ago. Anyone with a few hundred bucks (or even less) can pull together a site fit for a king, but just because you can build a site easily doesn’t mean it’s automatically going to be a good one.

Guest post by Leah D. Nelson. This article originally appeared on Soundfly’s Flypaper

Going on tour is, for many, a road trip, but it’s also incredibly hard work. It’s work from a performance, planning, and marketing standpoint, but it’s also deeply important that you take care of your body while on the road. With all the planning and organization that goes into booking and executing a successful tour (and sure, having a bit of fun along the way), the idea of eating healthy, balanced meals may not even come to mind.

How Do Indie Music Blogs And Radio Survive? A Harsh Reality

How Do Indie Music Blogs and Radio Survive? A Harsh Reality. Over the past few years I’ve watched many indie music blogs and independent radio come and go like the wind. We often hear about supporting the artists, which is exactly what these independent platforms do. The people behind the indie platforms sacrifice their health, families, lifestyle and quite often go into debt struggling to pay for the necessary costs associated with running such platforms. MusicTalks recently ran a poll on twitter which asked the question; ‘What would you do if all the independently run blogs and radio disappeared? Who would you get to place your new releases, interviews etc. up?’

Is The Proliferation Of Indie Streaming Platforms Hurting Unsigned Artists?

When major streaming platforms are fighting to build a monopoly on the music business, one which will allow them to dictate how the general public should consume music and basically who should be listened to, helped by AI algorithms that are heavily biased towards big artists from contractual and financial ties to their labels, for unsigned artists the deal is impossibly bad and will continue to be, so it might be argued that this is a clear case for alternative/independent solutions.
