It is hard when you are starting out and you just don't know how to promote a mix-tape online. These are the apps that have helped me promote my hip hop music online. There are only a certain amount of hours in a day and you cannot be on online all day. Sometimes no matter how hard you try you need something to help you reach your target audience. Here are some apps that give you extra ways of how to promote a mix tape online.
Hoot Suite is a social media management application. It is one of my favorite ways to network online. It allows you to mange all your media posts. If you are planning to put out a mix-tape, Hoot suite is one of the best tools to help release a mix tape online. This will enable you to schedule all of your social postings related to your mix tape, for example YouTube videos, your singles and all the press releases you have to your media profiles. When people comment on your profile posts you can easily return and engage with them and speak with them about your mix-tape.
Buffer app has a similar process to the schedule posted in Hoot Suite. But they let you load your post in to your dashboard. Using tools like browser extensions that give you makes it so much easier to promote all the sites where your hip hop mix-tape is located. With one click on the buffer application you can have lots of post related to the mix-tape that you are promoting to go out on your social profiles like Facebook and Twitter. Buffer app will help you have some posts loaded and ready to hit your media profiles when you are not even at your computer.
Twitter feed lets you syndicate your profiles using the RSS URL of your blog or website. All you have to do is log in to your social media profiles, to the Twitter feed application and create a feed to post to your social network profiles. Grab the RSS URL's of the sites that contain your mixtape like your website and your blog and YouTube channel. Then create a feed every time you make a post. This will be automatically posted to your media profiles for your followers to see and listen.
Tube Tool Box is another app that will really give you that boost that you need with your YouTube channel and help you promote a mix-tape online. This application lets you find hundreds of people related to your style of music for example "Hip Hop" and send them automatic messages to add you as a contact that in the hope that they will subscribe. You can literally set it up and leave it running. It is really easy to use and complies with YouTube's terms of service so you don't lose your YouTube channel that you need to help you promote your rap mix-tape online.
I hope this post will give you some idea of how to promote a mix-tape online. In an ever crowded social media sphere it can be very hard to get your work heard. Use these apps to help you shout that little bit louder and boost up your social media activity. Use the apps but continue to engage with your audience and speak to your fans and followers.
