- Social Media Promotion
This should not be new to you as an artist in this age and time. Social media is a great tool for pushing out your songs and videos. Start by sharing your songs with your friends or followers and asking them to

- Use the Traditional Method.
A lot of us are now addicted to our gadgets and the internet that we often forget the cultural ways of doing things. The same thing goes for music promotion. Promoting your music the traditional way can still be an effective method. So, what are these methods?
- Free Shows
Don’t be too big to go for free shows, especially when you are still upcoming. Attend shows around your neighbourhood if you can. Then attempt to see the organizers and request to do a free performance. This will help you gain more acceptance and could also expose you to sponsors.
- Get Open AirPlay
Take your songs to people and places around. You can take them to hotels, restaurants and clubs. You can also take them to barbing saloons.
- Collaborate with established artists
This could be quite difficult but still worth it. Having a big artist on your song could make it get accepted easily. Not all artists will charge you so much. Therefore, try to reach out to them first and try your best.
- Reach out To DJs And Radio Stations
This method is still effective and will always be effective. DJs are major players when it comes to parties and clubs. You never can tell how far your song will go if it gets to be part of a popular DJ mix.
Radio stations also play a major role in promoting artists and their music. Imagine if your song becomes loved by a presenter of a popular radio program. This could get it a lot of exposure. Also, reach out to them for interviews and discussions. This will help to further project you as an artist and your style of music.
