Upload Your Lyrics on Lyric Sites Like Genius.com
Lyric websites are just another pitstop on the internet where people can find your music.
Websites like Genius allow anyone to upload their lyrics. All you need is an account.
Other websites have a stricter process for uploading but it’s definitely worth giving them a go.
If you can upload your content to these mega-sites, DO IT.
Create a Lyric Video
Lyric videos can be free to make.
Websites like Veed are a good place to start!
Not only can you make lyric videos from behind your laptop (aka, you don’t even need to get dressed), you can share them on any platform you want.
YouTube, Instagram, your website, TikTok, the list goes on and on.
Just by creating that one video, you have given yourself a bounty of content.
Share it on Forums
Places like Reddit are a great way to do some self-promotion.
The beauty of forums is how niche they can get.
You can find music threads that perfectly match your vibe and share your sound with its followers.
You just have to be prepared to spend some time searching!
Collaboration is a fantastic way to not only show off your musical ability to a new audience but begin to build relationships with other musicians.
People get obsessed with only collaborating with people who they consider ‘above’ them or who have many more followers but this is the wrong perspective.
Obviously, if a huge curator shares your work, lots of people will see it but if you only chase those people, you’ll be met with a lot of rejection.
Focus on people who have a committed, engaged following (and who also just seem like decent people to work with).
It could be a brilliant learning experience for both parties.
Submit Your Music to Blogs
Some may argue that this is an old-fashioned method but there is a lot to gain from music blogs.
Many blogs have very committed readers who take hold the opinion of that blog in very high regard.
Another 10 listeners are another 10 listeners, right?
Not to mention if those 10 love it, they will share it with their family and friends!
Having your website (if you have one) linked from an established blog is also a big thumbs up from Google, helping the site’s ranking.
