If there is one thing that you need to know about the music scene today, it is to be more recognized. Every big act that are now on top had to start somewhere small. This is especially true for bands. You will hear a lot of Cinderella stories about how these groups of people just started playing in some basement a long time ago and got lucky to secure their break in the industry. The same could happen to you too.
When you start, there is a good chance that you have nothing to your name you would not even have your own fanbase no one recognizes you. Yet. You do not have any connection as well. Everybody has to start somewhere and this does not have to be the end of the world for you, you are just starting to carve out a name for yourself and for your group. So, you have to start somewhere regardless of how irrelevant to the music scene you might feel.
Although it is true that social media has played such a great role in being able to get materials from new groups to be heard it can be quite over-saturated. Hence there is a good chance that if you are hoping to gain new fans, then this might not be a very good channel for you to pursue the good old tricks of getting help from other bands will likely be the better road for you to take as this will definitely pave the way for you to be recognized by more people in the local scene.
Musicians in the local scene can help a lot. You might want to start doing some research on those bands that you like. No, they do not have to be people that play the same music as them. Watch their shows and at the end, try to introduce yourself to the.
When you do though, do not be pushy. What you want to achieve this time is to establish a connection where they will naturally invite you to perform on their shows with them. This will help give you the exposure that you need.
If you find that you do not succeed in your first few attempts, do not lose hope. You will find that the music scene is actually quite a very small one. So, there is a very good chance that there are bands out there who are fried or friends or are in some way connected to some people that you know these connections are definitely going to work to your advantage over time. Make sure that you maintain them.
Maintain visibility. The reason for this is because you want to be seen and you want to people to remember you and the music that you play. Create a logo for your band that will be easily recognizable by people and get more gigs.
This will be your brand. Work on your design to see to it that you can create a marketable brand out of your brand same ad logo.
Make the most of every gig, too. Gig hard. Show the people that gave you the opportunity to perform with them that you are worth it. Hire people to help sell tickets for a percentage of the sales!
You will want to play as often as you can though you want to try the places where you will play. This way, you cover more locations and at the same time, you avoid tiring the people who come to watch your shows out.
