The last few years I have taken many courses on digital marketing, digital advertising, copywriting, music production, landing pages, etc. I am a pop punk musician that is using digital ads to grow my subscribers on youtube and I have used them in the past to grow my email list. I'm wondering if this is a good way to spend my hard earned dollars or if there is a better/more efficient way I should be growing my fanbase and email list. Or maybe is there something else I should be focusing on to grow my fanbase?
There are a few things you can do to grow your email list, and then use that list to grow your fanbase in general.
First, it is important to research what works best for you. Different musicians have different fanbases, so the approach you take will depend on your music and what type of fan you are hoping to attract. For example, if you are a pop punk musician, you might want to focus on using digital ads to grow your subscribers. Alternatively, if you are a country musician, you might want to focus on building relationships with radio stations and other music industry professionals.
Once you have determined what kind of strategy will work best for you, it is important to put in the effort. Be sure to keep your email list up-to-date with the latest news and information about your music. Also, make sure to send out regular promotional emails that include new songs, tour dates, and other information about your music.
In addition to using email marketing, social media can also be used to build relationships with fans. You can use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other platforms to connect with your fanbase directly. This way, they can ask questions and provide feedback about your music. Additionally, social media allows you to market your music more broadly to a larger audience.
Overall, there are many ways that you can grow your email list and fanbase. The most important thing is to put in the effort and see results!
