If you are an up-and-coming musician, you are probably well aware of the struggle to get noticed. You might have incredible music, a close support group, and a go-get-em’ attitude, but what do all of these successful bands and solo performers seem to have that you do not? Marketing. People cannot learn to love you if news of you never reaches them. You may not have the budget to hire a PR team, but there are a few ways you can promote your music through useful networks people use every day: social media.

Target your niche

The first thing you should do when launching a marketing campaign is to decide what audience you will address. You will spread yourself too thin if you attempt to appeal to everyone. Instead of wasting your efforts trying to convince the wrong crowd that your music is worth listening to (and not just listening, purchasing), focus your attention on people that are more likely to find you interesting.

Build a community

Once you have identified what kind of person you will focus on, try to build a community. Marketing obviously results in sales, but can you name what else it gives successful musicians? Fanbases. Regardless of size, devoted followers and advocates give your brand legitimacy, and legitimacy will help you grow. Talk to your social media followers, respond to comments, answer questions, give out free stuff—you are asking to be seen, so to win people’s loyalty, let them know that you see them as well.

Whether you are a designer, marketer, or hobbyist, social media is an excellent place to share interior design images and expertise. Pinterest is particularly well known for inspiring users what to do next in their living spaces. Instagram, however, is also popular; due to its photo-heavy nature and the potential to reach hundreds of millions of people, Instagram is a useful platform for anyone in the interior design space. Managing a top-notch Instagram account requires some careful thought and work, so here are a few tips for expanding your account’s reach and making it the best that it can be. 

Decide on your purpose

Before you dive into curating your account, determine what your reasons for doing so are. Are interior design and decorating (yes, there is a difference) passions that you simply like to share with the world? If so, then the way you approach social media will be slightly different than someone who is trying to sell products or services. 

Are you a designer trying to market your business? In this case, it’s wise to set up a business Instagram. With this kind of channel, you have privileges standard accounts do not: you can add links to stories, add a contact button, sell products directly through the platform, and your industry will show up on your profile. You will also have access to a wealth of valuable analytics and the ability to advertise via “promoted” posts.
