All the big artists get featured on tons of blogs and music journals. But did you know that many upcoming indie artists are also featured on some of the biggest blogs? If you're looking for massive exposure, blogs are still 100% relevant.
You've probably tried Instagram Ads, Facebook Ads and YouTube ads. The truth is that although these work very well, they all give fans an impression that you're trying to promote yourself.
It's not just about getting your music heard and expanding your fanbase. Blog features can give you serious recognition. The music industry is fundamentally about networking and that's where all the big opportunities lie.
Blog features are an amazing way to get you some serious social proof and help you stand among the big artists. Don't you subconsciously think an artist is more 'credible' if he/she is featured on a big music blog like say, pitchfork? Well, if you make great music you could be featured too!
