Social Media Strategy For Musicians – Guest Blog

I have discussed in many articles my views on using social media and networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as a means to get regular streams of new visitors to your website so you can continue to build your community and mailing list.

The idea is that all these Web 2.0 websites are user-generated community portals where you can set up profiles and pages to showcase your music and your information. People, friends, and their friends, can become a friend or fan of your page, read and listen to your music and then possibly click on your web link to visit your website.

I wanted to create a diagram that showed how I think this should all work, but came across one which looks even better than what I would be able to create. This diagram was created by Tom Williams of the Hit Singularity blog.

The chart above is brilliant, and although I wouldn’t alter it, I would point out that there are just too many tools that you would end up wasting all your time on them if you don’t plan it out accordingly and figure out what to do. My preferences are to use Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to generate your traffic to your website and blog so you can build an e-mail list of fans.

What do you think of this diagram? Does it help you?

    Hi d.BRYJ, I read your blog today and found it really informative. I wanted to connect with you because I think you and your readers would be interested in MemCatch. It’s a new platform that has some great features. MemCatch has developed a very easy and simple way for you, and the general user to get started, and be productive with their social media activities across Twitter, Linkedin, and Facebook. We have also developed metrics to track the content you share. MemCatch includes the sharing component that can be found in some other apps, but our platform also offers functionality for collecting content across the web. We have packaged all of the basic social media steps together into one user friendly platform.

    MemCatch Is a New Social Media Platform that has some great features, we would love to talk to you about it!
