5 reasons you should start putting more eggs in Twitter’s basket.
For a while Twitter has been friends with music sites like SoundCloud, Youtube, Spotify and many others. They’re finally putting those countless social engagements to work in the form of their new #Music platform. Available now online and for iOS, #Music collects the most popular songs being tweeted about and ranks them in a chart format. Not only that but you can see what artists are starting to trend and which are being newly discovered. Naturally, #Music also offers suggestions about which artists you should check out.
This is all fine and good for a quick pick-me-up when you’re not sure what to get your ears on, but the real advantage goes to musicians. Music discovery is becoming more and more important with all these streaming services and music community sites. The challenge for new musicians is to learn how to use these tools to their advantage to gain more new listeners and retain current fans. On that note let’s dive into some strategies for #Music that can help you grow your listener base.
