Marketing is a business investment, just like buying a laptop and software for editing and writing music. Marketing is also very competitive so choosing a company with experience and online relationships will help maximize budgets and reach. Buying a fixed number of views and streams do not cause work towards organic growth. Would you like to have 100 people in a room who do not care about your music, or 10 that do who may share it with others?

In the world of online marketing, there are many ever-lasting challenges beneath the surface, and these challenges are ever-evolving. For example, one of them is generational changes. These directly affect online behaviors and trends. It’s highly likely your fanbase is the Y Generation, more referred to as the millennial’s and sometimes stereotyped as the, Attention Deficient Generation. Millennial’s surpassed baby boomers which makes them the largest generation. Make no mistake that shorter attention spans are not to be confused with a lack of intelligence. Millennial’s are very smart and they want good content and honestly. They can easily decipher honestly from B.S.
Now, the main challenge for Gen Y is not getting their attention; it’s keeping and preserving it. Statistically, millennial’s have shorter attention spans which make them a more delicate audience. The reality is all of us have several active social networks and they’re embedded into our daily lives. These networks send never-ending notifications and ding alerts! This does not make it any easier on millennial’s to stay focused. In general, this makes it more difficult to make a connection and have them relate to your message.
