					MySpace has been the heart and soul of most indie music marketing programs over
the past 5 years or so. Some bands have even "made it " almost exclusively as a
consequence of MySpace selling. The truth however is that for the main part, at least
to my mind, bands and musicians have been using MySpace the wrong way all this

Rather then simply adding thousands and thousands of chums in the hope that they'll
listen to your tunes and be so electrified that they spontaneously run out and buy your
album, it is much more advantageous to view MySpace as a way to make initial
contact with a potential fan, the goal being to send them to your squeeze page so that
you might eventually get them to enroll in your list, as email promoting is a far
superior strategy of generating album sales then comments and messages that actually
don't amount to far more than Spam.

The short answer to the issue is that yes, I think promoting your band on MySpace is
still applicable but I believe an adjustment of the perspective is important to actually
make it worth your while. Because in the final analysis, any traffic creating strategy is
topical, be it MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, or even just good old fashion live shows,
as long as you are making that traffic count by capturing it in some shape so you can
develop a liaison with the people and at last market you music to them over and over
again down the line.

How to pimp your Band Or Music on Twitter

Twitter is like every other social media site in that it can be a incredible way to push
traffic to your music. However if you're just sending that traffic to your website in the
hopes that someone will see how great you are and buy your album you are likely
going to be pretty dejected.

If you're planning on ditching MySpace and using Twitter to push your band or music,
then I would recommend you set up a squeeze page and ensure you are capturing the
contact information of those potential fans so you can push your music later and, with
a little luck, essentially sell some albums.

The basic way that I use Twitter to sell albums and push my music is by including my
URL to my squeeze page in my profile. I utilise a twitter bot to grow my follow count
by about a hundred every day a good share of these people wind up clicking on my
URL and eventually signing up for my mail list. Once there, they're in my sales funnel
and in time, the album sales start rolling in.

It's also vital to communicate with the individuals that are following you and to a
certain extent, the more posts you make the more folks are inclined to check out your
profile and of course your URL. In the final analysis it is like anything, the more that
you put in to it the more that you will get out of it. But like in the early days of
MySpace, I believe Twitter is a still principally unexploited traffic generating tool that
is superb for pushing your band or music online.
