You’re probably thinking that social media marketing is something that businesses use to try and get a forefront on their customers and audience. With that being said, you should also consider it as a useful tool.

Developing a social presence is a fabulous way to grow your audience and create a fan base, no matter how small.

Firstly, you should choose the right social media platform to invest in.

Consider how active your current fanbase is and where they normally reach out to you, whether it is Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

For example, your account name should be similar on each platform and you should include any important links. We could go on all day about marketing for musicians, so consider doing the research yourself!
