Recently I have begun a new online music project and will be promoting it soon. It's very early days yet and as it's just me on my own writing, recording, mixing, making the artwork and promoting, it has become a huge stress trying to figure out where and how to promote music effectively. I have been researching this topic on google often but I am curious to know from other musicians in a similar situation. So my questions are: 1.How are you promoting your music in 2018? Especially independent or solo artists. 2. Is performing live your main means of promotion or do you promote mainly online? It would also be interesting to hear from people doing this a long time how promotion has changed over the years with various avenues opening/closing and social network algorithms such as facebook posts changing.
