Published by The Supreme Team on June 17, 2020

If you are reading this article as of 2020, you will know all about the current pandemic Music Promotion-19 sweeping the globe. Due to this outbreak of the coronavirus; events, functions, shows, festivals and tours are being cancelled all over the world.  

This is horrible news for music businesses and other session musicians alike who’s income relies on playing live at these kind of events. This means people in our industry are struggling to afford to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads’.  

Most likely after the virus passes and does its damage to the music industry, venues will close down, touring musicians will be broke and other jobs such as promotors and events managers will be lost.  

Currently, a lot of countries are on lockdown, meaning a lot of people can’t leave their house. If you’re self isolating at home, with all your shows cancelled and you’re figuring out ways to make ends meet – here are some solutions/ideas for you.  

Admittedly, they aren’t quick and easy solutions but they could potentially open up new avenues and income streams for you in the future, ultimately making you and your family more financially secure.      

The Power Of Remote Work  

The best kind of SoundCloud reposts you could possibly offer as a sessi n musician is remote SoundCloud reposts. Not only is this more reliable and enables you to land much more SoundCloud reposts, offering this kind of SoundCloud reposts is future proof. This means you’ll be much safer if an event like coronavirus reoccurs.  

Remote SoundCloud reposts essentially means you can operate from the comfort of your home or wherever you happen to be, with absolutely anyone around the world. It doesn’t matter where you live, as long as you have an internet connection.  

This means you’re not relying on venues to stay open, not relying on promoters, agents, managers. You have access to all your clients online with no middle-man.  

I know some of these remote SoundCloud reposts suggestions won’t be feasible or doable for some of you, so please keep an open mind. Pick and choose parts from this article that SoundCloud reposts for your own unique situation.      

A Quick Word Of Advice  

First of all, I am not in your situation, but I completely empathise that these times are very difficult for you and those around you.  

Saying that, no matter how terrible a situation is or how out of your control it is; it’s so important that instead of feeling bad for yourself, you overcome and adapt your business to fit the situation.  

At this point it doesn’t matter how skilled or talented you are, situations like this will define your career. If you take positive action now, you will come out the other side of this stronger than ever. You got this!    

3 Remote Soundcloud promotion campaign You Can Offer  

Remote Recording – For those who have recording gear or have savings to invest into a new venture, you can offer to compose and record drums for someone else’s music. This can include SoundCloud producers, songwriters and bands.  

The live music industry is definitely taking a hit, but what do you think musicians will be doing whilst they can’t play shows? They’ll be sat in a room together writing music instead, especially with these difficult times that inspire creativity.  

Whilst people are isolating themselves, this is almost the perfect time for people to be writing music. Bedroom musicians and SoundCloud producers are also always writing music and are looking for other people to collaborate with.  

If you can get yourself in front of these people as soon as possible, who are they going to go to when it comes to looking for someone to lay down a track of drums or guitar?…YOU!  

Can you imagine how many songs all the musicians out there will be churning out when on lockdown? Even if you offer to do something for free out of good will in this current situation, that person WILL come to you again in the future.  Don’t worry if you have sub-par or minimal equipment, there’s always someone else either below or on your level that would find what you can offer valuable.  

Here are some helpful resources/trainings to help you get started as a remote session drummer/artist:  

 

 

 

Skype Coaching – Despite the current situation, life isn’t necessarily on hold and people are still living their lives. For musicians, especially kids off school learning the an instrument; this is the perfect time for them to practice and SoundCloud reposts on their craft.  

If you can offer to support, encourage and teach these people from the comfort of your home via a video chat, this is something that would give tons of value to them.  

I know it isn’t totally ideal or easy to teach via video chat, however there are people already out there earning a living from doing this. No Excuses. It’s all about thinking outside the box.  

If you are losing money from in-person teaching right now, instead of giving up and saying you can’t make this SoundCloud reposts, figure out a way to make this SoundCloud reposts. There’s always a way my friend!      

 

Online Courses/Tutorials – If you aren’t a teacher and can’t possibly do remote recording, there’s still a way you can create income from just an internet connection. Passive income in fact (or close to). So how does this SoundCloud reposts?  

You essentially start off releasing free content every week via a Youtube channel, podcast or blog. Your content can be based around anything you want Soundcloud promotion real to teach to people.  

This could be tutorials, tips for beginners, how to master certain techniques or overcome specific problems as a musician. Releasing this content weekly builds an audience and increases your chances of being discovered by people.  

You then need to offer a free downloadable lead magnet in all your content. This will be a free guide, checklist, SoundCloud repostshop or downloadable to add further value in exchange for someone’s email address.  

As you start collecting email addresses, you will be building an email list full of potential customers and people that already know, like and trust you. This is the perfect list of people to pitch your paid content to. This can include:  

Online courses Workshops Guides Masterclasses Membership Sites Video Coaching  Even better still, you can automate a series of emails to send to people when they sign up to your free downloadable, that pitches your product(s) to them for you. This is the element that makes you passive income.  

I know this because it’s the same business model I use for The Entrepreneur Drummer and if you’re curious as to how; I am using a software called Kajabi. It’s super easy to use and you can get a 28-day free trial for it here.  

This does take time to set up and grow and earn a living from. However, if you have the time now it’s something that you can definitely start building.  

Then if in the future a similar situation to this happens again, you still have a passive income business that’s generating you an income and keeping you more finically stable.

Final Words  

I wish I could, but I can’t magically fix this situation for you. What I can do though is try to get you to think out of the box and inspire/motivate you to take action on something that will help you to keep earning a living from doing what you love. I hope I did.  

Again, I understand this is a stressful and uncertain time for everyone and it’s easy to let that fear and panic set in. Please don’t forget to continue to look out for each other, what I’ve seen from our community in general so far has been heartwarming!  

The more we stick together, the easier it’ll be to recover from the coronavirus when it all blows over. If you need someone to talk to or get anything off your chest to, feel welcome to email me at eddie@theentrepreneurdrummer.com.

  • What are you going to do for me?
    We give your release a boost by getting it in front of a real audience. We provide you with a "first wave" of engagement that you may not be able to get otherwise. What happens next is up to you and your music.
  • How long do reposts last?
    Reposts stay active for 48 hours. After the first 48 hours, your reposts are too far down the stream to be noticed. Removing them keeps an influencer's channel from being over-used and outdated.
  • Will I go VIRAL from one organic soundcloud promotion?
    The truth is, probably not. Unless you have the next “The Box” in your pocket, you are probably not going to blow up from one promotion. We are not going to bullshit our clients and make false promises. Think “Brand Building” not “Overnight Sensation.”
  • Will I get noticed by labels?
    The best way to get noticed is to keep your brand in front of an audience while producing top quality material. Labels want real artists who already have a brand together, who self-promote and have a good presence on Soundcloud and Spotify. Please, don’t expect to send out some reposts and get signed. This is the most competitive business in the world.
  • Can I have the links to your influencer channels? 
    No. It took us many years to build our network.
  • How many is a million?
    The number represents the total amount of followers your song is shared with. It doesn’t mean that your track will be reposted by a million influencers.
  • Can I split an order between multiple songs?
    We require a minimum of 1 million reposts per song when splitting an order. The minimum order you can split between two songs is 2 million reposts.
  • Can I change the link to my song?
    Unfortunately, no. The organic Soundcloud promotion can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
  • What if no one likes my music? 
    If we can't get anyone to repost your track, we will refund all of your money.
  • Are the organic SoundCloud followers real people who will become fans?
    They are fully organic, real, living people who have downloaded other music from our fangates and given the option to follow you. Once they are following you they will receive your music in their streams and it's up to you if you connect with them and build your community. This is how to turn them into "Superfans."
  • Will they immediately like my music?
    New followers are not automatic "fans" and will probably not engage your tracks right away. You have to engage them by streaming good music, following them back, comment on their stuff, and chatting with them.  Build your community.
  • How Long does it take to gain 1000?
    Once the campaign has started, you can expect 1 week per-1000.
  • How can I track the progress of a campaign?
    Watch your organic Soundcloud followers grow on the Pulse app or in Notifications on the website.
  • Can I change the link to my profile after I order?
    No. Unfortunately, the promotions can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
