97,1% of all digital albums sell less then 1000 copies. Do you want your album to be on the other 2.9%? Here’s 5 tips:
This obviously goes without saying: don’t just select a handful of tracks and name it an album: nurture every track, every second of the album as if it’s a baby. Put all your love and dedication into each track, and carefully select the tracklist of your most precious new album.
This is where a modern record label comes into picture: make a plan on How, When and Where your product will be marketed, and for what price. In our digital age, an album is not just a CD but each track can be used to maximize marketing efforts.
3 Social Media
The backbone of your album communications: spread the word! Even better, have others spread it for you and make it as interactive as possible.
You know your music is of the highest quality, but do others? Improve your productional skills by teaming up with other artists, and inspire each other. Get inspired; collaborate and learn.
5 Take your time
Key to success: don’t rush! Like mentioned before, treat your album as your baby and nurture it. You only get one chance to release each album; make sure you think it’s perfect before you let your fans enjoy it.
