Getting your music heard online today is possible via websites that allow you to upload your music for anyone to hear. The issue is, once your music is online, how do you get people to recognise that it is there? The idea of uploading your music is so it gets heard and uploading a piece that only gets a handful of listeners can be off-putting.

Luckily, there are companies out there like Share Pro who have websites that can help you market your music through several PR style marketing methods.

If you want your music to be heard, then spread it around as many channels as you can:

·         Share your music with 100s of tastemakers

·         Feedback on your music from over 250 pros

·         Guaranteed listens/audiences so your music will be heard

Manual Vs Automatic Music Submissions

Manual music submissions can take up a lot of time, especially if you are looking for as many websites you can submit your music to as possible. If you can automate your music submissions, you will get your music out there much quicker and to more websites and communities that are relevant to your genre.

When you submit music to blogs via the Share Pro tool, the site connects with blogs that have thousands of readers each day. You can use the software to upload music directly to Share Pro or share links to your uploads on sites such as SoundCloud, Spotify, YouTube, and others.

Your links will then be shared around various music communities, so you do not have to go out there and market these links yourself. Of course, you will also want to share your links on your own Facebook and Twitter account, but that’s about as much manual work as you will need to do when it comes to spreading the word online.

Pros Scouting Online Music Sites for New Talent

There are currently hundreds of music companies looking for new talent. One of the best ways for these scouts to find the next big name for their record label is by getting out there and listening to people’s uploads on platforms such as Share Pro and proving feedback to help people improve.

Share Pro collates people’s music from SoundCloud, Spotify, and other music sites so industry professionals can find and listen to new music from raw and untapped talents. These pros use the platform to take the time to listen to new artists, follow their favourite artists, and provide feedback.

By giving feedback and listening for improvements that came as a direct result of feedback from a pro, these pros can improve talent and eventually have them to a point where it could be worth following up on the artist’s talents by giving them a contract.

Getting Paid for Your Music

If you are just starting online, then do not expect to get paid immediately. There is always a chance that your sound catches the attention of someone working within the music industry and you could be invited to a recording studio for a demo, or even a small live event.

These invites are usually an initial opportunity to move into paid work after a demo rather than paid work that is immediately offered.

For most musicians, it is an honour just to have their music heard while getting paid is a bonus. If you are persistent enough with your music uploads, listen to feedback from pros on Share Pro, and continue to improve your work, then you stand every chance of being invited to paid gigs.

Keep on Improving Your Passion

For some music is just a passion and just being able to play a tune or sing is enough. Sometimes being able to upload music is just a bonus because after all musicians and singers just want to be heard. Very rarely is music about money for most people.

That said, if there is a chance of being paid for performing, then most people would not turn down the opportunity to do what they love and get paid for it because let’s face it, most people do not like their jobs or would rather get paid to do something they enjoy – job satisfaction.

Well, thanks to music submission tools, you can now get professional feedback on how you can improve your music for your existing fan base, while also getting the chance for talent spotters to pick you out and sign you up!
