To increase your plays, exposure, and sales (perhaps) try creating a music video. It doesn’t have to be high budget.
I would never have heard of the band Ok Go, if it were not for there amazingly creative videos. I would not have found them on Soundcloud or any other audio website. But on social media, people share videos 100 times more often than they will share an audio file. Videos are appreciated in social media communities, where shared audio content is usually rejected and brings negative reactions.
It’s obviously a video generation! Which is not necessarily a negative thing; it can be an opportunity! If you can get over the learning curve of creating videos, this could be a wonderful thing for your music!
Here’s a Playlist I created of all the videos below, so if you want to watch all of them you can. What would you add to this list??
It can be high on the creative factor and get views/listens!
Another one from OK GO, because it’s one of my favorites.
