Success Of Mixtapes Finally Making Major Labels Realize That ‘Free’ Can Be Useful Marketing

Success Of Mixtapes Finally Making Major Labels Realize That ‘Free’ Can Be Useful Marketing

from the not-so-awful dept

We were amazed a few years ago when the RIAA, with the help of law enforcement, started going after DJs who made mixtapes, even though those same mixtapes were considered a huge part of the promotional infrastructure of certain parts of the music world (mainly hip hop, but certainly elsewhere as well). Of course, after shutting down and arresting a bunch of mixtape DJs, a bunch of artists just started making and releasing their own damn mixtapes, and doing so for free online. And even though we still see some stories of the RIAA going after “officially released” mixtapes, it seems that even the labels are starting to recognize that free mixtapes help promote artists and aren’t worth freaking out about:

“The game favors people that can produce quality music and then turn right around and produce more quality music-which is not a given,” Atlantic Records VP of A&R Zvi Edelman says. His signee, Wiz Khalifa, leveraged free, original mixtapes like 2010′s “Kush & OJ” and 2011′s “Cabin Fever” into the building of a dedicated fan base that helped, along with an intensive touring strategy, make his Atlantic/Rostrum Records debut, “Rolling Papers,” one of the few hip-hop debuts to sell more than 500,000 copies (it’s now at 570,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan) in 2011.

A batch of newcomers — such as J. Cole, Big Sean, Dom Kennedy, Mac Miller and Smoke DZA — has adapted to the consumer demand for free, original rap music. The philosophy is often described this way: As a reward for artists remaining loyal to them (by giving away original music), fans return the favor by buying concert tickets, merchandise and “real” albums from record labels. The result is a give-and-take relationship that keeps rappers in control of their brand and marketing, and iTunes playlists full of free albums disguised as “mixtapes.” The payoff is an active fan base, which labels and management hope stimulates retail purchases.

This might be about as close as you can come to big record labels officially admitting that free music actually has value that is monetized elsewhere. But, still, apparently, we need special new laws to shut down the very same marketing that they now want to use to build a stronger fan base.

How To Effectively Promote A Mixtape Online

How To Effectively Promote A Mixtape Online

Mixtapes and street albums have become the driving forces behind much of the underground hip hop music we hear today. Indie recording artists use these forms of media as a means to create brand awareness and share music online. Popular mixtape promotion websites such as Datpiff and Live Mixtapes provide and powerful advertising platform for many upcoming artists.

However, as the information highway we know, as the internet, becomes more crowded, indie recording artists are forced to sort through the mountains of information to find out what marketing strategies are proven and effective to promote their music. The following seeks to eliminate this hassle and offer 12 easy tips for promoting your mixtape online.

1. Make Ear-Catching, High Quality Music

The first step in crafting a successful marketing strategy for your mixtape is the music preparation. Professional audio engineering is absolutely essential! Whether you’re playing your music for the President A&R of Sony or your neighbor down the street, your music should be compelling and ear-catching. Be certain that your first impression is always your best.

2. Get Professional Photos

Perception is reality in the music industry. Even if you aren’t a “major” recording artist you should present yourself in that fashion. Professional images and graphic design work for your album cover are a must!

3. Offer Free Music Downloads

Offering free samples of your music is a great way to begin building brand awareness. This is not to say that you should give all of your music away for free! Many artists do this and end up going broke because they do not have a strategic plan behind their free music downloads. Your goal with free downloads is to inspire your listener to action. If at all possible try to gain some form of contact information in exchange for your free download so that you can continue further communications and build a long lasting artist-fan relationship. Other things to consider are selling merchandise such as t-shirts and offering your music free. This adds value to your music and puts money in your pocket.

4. Upload To Free Mixtape Websites

Uploading your mixtape to free mixtape websites such as Datpiff, Live Mixtapes, etc. is an easy, free way to begin your mixtape promotion campaign. Be sure to include all relevant contact information. Make sure that your presentation is professional and that it accurately represents your image.

5. Start A Blog

Starting your own mixtape promotion is a creative way to draw attention and web traffic to your mixtape/album. Including pictures, music, and related videos can all can help in your promotional efforts. Encourage people to subscribe to your blogs content via RSS so that you can continue to keep them updated on your progress.

6. Submit Your Mixtape for Review

Some music blogs, online magazines, or digital newspapers will allow you to submit your mixtape for review. Be sure that if you are submitting your music that you are doing it in a professional manner. Follow submission instructions and be sure to include a well designed mixtape cover, your best quality music, and all relevant contact information.

7. Start A Mailing List

If you’re planning on having serious success as an indie recording artist, you should be implementing a mailing list into your music marketing strategy. Capturing the email addresses of fans allows you to continue marketing your current and future music releases. It also gives you an opportunity to provide exclusive music, photos, and videos.

8. Post An Ad On Craigslist

Posting an advertisement on craigslist is an unorthodox, but creative way to promote your mixtape online.

Other ways you can effectively promote your mixtape online:

9. Share Via Social Media

Using social media is a great way to spread the word about your mixtape. Remember that social media is all about being social. Indescriminately, sharing links with others IS NOT an effective way to get the word out about your mixtape. It’s usually considered spam.

10. Make Video Trailers

Music videos and trailers/teasers are extremely effective marketing tools for your mixtape, especially on YouTube.

11. Steam Live Videos

If you have a webcam, use live video streaming services such as Ustream, Livestream, or Tinychat to interact with fans and promote.

12. Pay For Advertising

Paying for advertising space is a tried and true method of promoting your music.

The aforementioned tips are just a few of the many ways you can begin effectively promoting your mixtape online. There is no one way to marketing your music. Do your own research and find what methods work best for you.

MixTape Promotion 101 aka How To Promote My Mixtape

Whether you are an artist or a producer there is a good possibility you will at some point be releasing a mixtape. This should help you maximize possible benefits from releasing your mixtape.
You must first determine what goal you are trying to achieve by releasing a mixtape. It is essential that you determine your target audience, the budget you are working with, and how you want to distribute it. Releasing a mixtape could be done for many reasons. It could be for promotion, hyping an upcoming album release, a tour, etc. If your primary goal of releasing a mixtape is to make money then you should probably consider putting together an album instead. An album is a completely different story.

So who is your target audience? If the goal is to obtain more fans then they would be your target audience. If you are attempting to be recognized by someone in the industry then they would be your target audience. This ties into the next questions that must be answered. What is my budget? How much available funds do you have to invest in your mixtape? How much to spend on recording expenses, distribution, packaging, advertising, etc. How much you spend depends on your target audience. If you are trying to reach more fans than you might decide to release it digitally on the net. If you are trying to gain exposure from someone in the industry you may be putting together a complete promotional package that includes a hard copy of your mixtape packaged and looking professional. It is also possible that you decide to do both.

Releasing a mixtape digitally can be free or almost no cost. It can also be extremely easy and convenient. This does not require you to hit the streets passing CD’s out of the back of your mom’s minivan. It also does not require professional packaging and other expenses associated with hard copies. It makes it really easy to reach a lot more people, especially people outside of your local scene. The downfall of the digital release is it does not have the personal touch and relationship building aspects provided with the physical copy. I personally recommend doing both if the budget allows. Both have there benefits and doing both maximizes your chance of gaining more fans. A site that offers digital mixtape releases is mixtapebiz.com

Promotion is crucial regardless of who your target audience or what your goal is with your mixtape. When promoting a mixtape it is extremely important to promote on all forms of Social Media. Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Reverbnation, etc. Promote your tape on all of these sites in the forums and on your personal pages. Make it one click away for viewers by providing direct links to listen and download. The easier it is for fans to find it the more exposure you will receive.

Another means of promotion is to hit up all forums that focus on your genre of music. Drop links, ask for feedback, etc. One thing that I commonly see artists miss out on is attempting to have a blog write an article about your upcoming release or mixtape. This can provide publicity as well as provide promotion from a third party. It’s not just the artist telling you they are good, its an unbiased listener giving you their thoughts and opinions on the mixtape. Search for blogs in your genre. Ask them to feature your mixtape on their blog and write a review. Having quotes from articles and blogs are also great to use in promotional packages. Another great way to promote your album is to feature other artists and producers.

The more people that are on the mixtape usually means the more people promoting it. Other artists will promote songs that they are included on which leads to more promotion for you. Also if you work with artists or producers that already have a solid following it might create an instant buzz for your mixtape.

Promote your mixtape by all means possible. Definitely take advantage of all the free opportunities on the net. Provide good music, promote it well, and you are moving in the right direction to achieve success.
