A music industry networking platform can help you connect with a lot of people and promote your work. If you're not already on one, here are 6 signs it's time to build a profile and start connecting.
Looking for Band Members
Even if you just need a band to do some backing work on a song, there's a good chance you'll find the help you need on a music entertainment networking platform. In many cases, people find band members within their circles. Someone might also have worked with a great player at some point and can help you to connect with them.
Building a Social Media Presence
Working on a music industry networking platform, you can build a larger social media presence. By linking to your social, video, and music profiles, you can quickly let people know what your work is like. Likewise, you can drop news about releases to drum up interest.
Preparing to Record in a Studio
Studio time is worth its weight in gold. That is especially true if you find a studio that has the right acoustics for your sound. Likewise, you'll want to find a studio that offers sufficient space and equipment for all of your recording needs.
A music entertainment networking platform can help you check out lots of studios in a matter of days. You also can see who else has worked there and listen to their music to get a sense of what the acoustics will be like.
Going Into Production
Once you've put together some tracks, you need someone to produce your song, EP, or album. As with studios and band members, you can log onto a music entertainment networking platform to search for producers and engineers. Their profiles will show who they've worked with, and you can see whether the producer works with musicians who have similar sounds.
Visual media can be a great selling tool for music. The right video on a social media platform can connect you with a whole new audience. However, you'll have to find people who record and produce videos, and that's where a platform can help.
Seeking a Contract
Once you're confident in the quality of your work, you can start looking into contract options. A music industry networking platform connects artists with many individuals and businesses that can take their brands to new levels. You can also see who's under contract to get a feel for where you might want to sign.
