Or have you ever thought about re-releasing some of your album cuts as singles?
If not you should be.
Aside from the fact that fans are starting to shun albums, here are 4 pretty good reasons..
1) You Stay Relevant
Assuming you are not god, and can whip out a full album every month, making your fans wait 6 months to a year (or more) between releases is an eternity these days.
Especially when there is so much else going on in the lives of the music fans that we are trying to win over.
By releasing singles, you stay relevant in a music market where releasing music only 1 or 2 times a year is almost the same as releasing nothing at all.
2) You Build A Loyal Fan Base Faster
When you release music, you are essentially opening the up the lines of communication with your fans. The more often that you release music, the faster you and your fans are going to get to know each other.
Bottom line, by releasing singles, you create a loyal fan base faster. A fan base that gets used to getting music from you on a regular basis. They begin to anticipate each release.
3) You Crush Procrastination
By releasing singles you replace procrastination with the sense of purpose that is created from frequent delivery of music. You can't sit around and wonder why your career is going nowhere because you have work to do.
4) You Get Paid More Often
Get paid 8 – 12 times per year instead of just once or twice.
You Can't Lose
When you release singles you…
- Stay relevant.
- Stay busy.
- Build a loyal fan base faster.
- Get paid more often.
- Wear a big fat smile more often.
If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can't lose because I've been through this process.
I even took the time to jot the process down so I could share it with my fellow musicians. Check out my “Sell More Singles: How to Release Song Singles and Make More Money More Often.” Its a step by step guide on how to release your music.
