A: While promoting your music on global platforms such as social media and Google ads is essential, it’s not enough to gain recognition in the Music Industry.
Record labels play a crucial role in promoting your music, cover artwork and other significant aspects of your project. This especially true for independent record labels that have connections to community organizations.
Creating a buzz in your local community is important, as being known in places near to you is the foundation for being identified in significant cities and perhaps even globally. Thus, depending solely on social media and online advertisement is naive.
The help of a record label that is independently functioning can help provide you access to local recreational facilities such as skating rinks, bowling alleys, and pool halls, which are perfect places for marketing new music from new artists. While it is not necessary to have a record label for these promotional activities, it is extremely beneficial.
So, don’t limit yourself to promoting your music solely online. Partner up with a reputable independent label that fits your personality and expand how you market your material!
