How do you promote your music?
« on: August 19, 2018, 10:22:12 AM »
What are some methods do you use to promote your music? What are some tips that you would have for a newbie to start promoting their vaporwave tracks?

I've been trying to find forums like this one to share. Reddit has a big community but I cannot stand Reddit. Especially the vaporwave forum. All they do is tell you that your stuff is "not real vaporwave" Whatever that means!! I enjoy this forum much better. I hope it grows, as everyone here seems to be very friendly and actually cares about music. I also have alt-tech accounts on Minds, Bitchute, Gab etc.. which will probably be the next big players. Can't hurt to get in early.

I'm terrible with self-promotion.  Getting on a label was a really good move for me, they end up doing all the promoting for you, freeing you up to just produce.

I just plug my shit on twitter as much as possible. A label definitely helps, but it'll take time if the label itself is new.
Either or, keep on promoting, trying to get on labels, etc. You'll get a big break someday!

I've been just dumping stuff on my twitter or on my facebook page.

My pleasure is moreso in working on singles for compilations.  I like to be able to help other people to make their dreams actualizations.  It's been fun working with people in this manner.

Generally twitter and reddit, I don't do a whole lot of social media, which is probably holding me back lol.

I do use reddit for the most part, r/makingvaporwave is really useful, at least to me.

r/makingvaporwave is a decent subreddit as far as the vw themed subreddits go.  there are some really helpful people in there.
