Do you want to make it simple for thousands of people to share your music? Then you’ve come to the right place. Something has to start someplace for something to go viral, and that somewhere is you. Simply get your song in front of the proper people who will listen to it and share it, and keep doing so. After that, additional people will share it, and the viral snowball effect will work in your favor. I’m going to show you how to share your promote YouTube music and get things started in this article. There are a plethora of ways to share your music online, but this method is simple to apply and anyone can do it.

The Greet and Retweet Method is here to welcome you

Hundreds of individuals can retweet your music, and thousands of others will hear it and share it. Yes, Twitter will be used. The same concept applies to Instagram, but the Twitter search tool is significantly greater and makes connecting with the right individuals much easier.

Step One: What Kind of Person Are You?

Look for artists who are similar to you. I’m not talking about well-known artists here, but artists who have a large number of followers and shares but are still relatively unknown, with a following that is happy to find them on Twitter and promote their music. You figure out who the right bands are; they’ll have anywhere from 100,000 to a few million Spotify streams. Going to Last FM and finding one artist you like and keeping hunting until you have a list of 20 or so artists who you think would have the same fan base as you is a fantastic approach to acquire multiple musicians who are similar to you. As you will see in the following steps, these artists must be quite similar to you. For others of you, this may be your first time doing this research, and you’re learning about artists who are similar to you for the first time. It is necessary to conduct proper research. So now that you have your list, let’s get started.

Step 2: Sign up for Tweet Deck

We want to find out who has shared those artists on their Twitter Feed for this stage, which is why finding artists who are similar to you was critical. A music video by Drake, Adriana Grande, or Calvin Harris may be shared by everyone and their dog, but people who post new artists and their music on their social media pages are the ones that stand out. To accomplish this, we’ll use a service called Tweet Deck. It’s possible you’ve heard of it. It’s a free platform that allows you to simultaneously follow various Twitter topics. That’s exactly what it was made for. You can keep track of everything if you have a variety of hobbies.

But now you’ll utilize it to identify people with verified accounts and a lot of engagements who like comparable artists’ music and who we can trust to share yours. Choose one of the artists from step one’s list and enter their name as well as the name of their most recent single into Tweet Deck. This will display in chronological order everyone who has tweeted about that track.

Yes, Twitter’s usual search function will do the same thing. It does not, however, provide you with the opportunity to filter those results. Tweetdeck is capable of doing so. We want to filter by engagement, which we can do by specifying a minimum amount of likes or retweets. I put in a minimum of 30 likes and (optional) 5 retweets when I finish this workout. What I’m looking for is engagement on this person’s post when they share an artist’s songs. Anyone with no following or engagement will be filtered out by this task. This you in determining the ideal people to contact and prevents you from wasting time on those whose contributions will have little influence. Everyone on that list is now worth following on Twitter (almost).

Step 3: The Acid Test for Tweeters

Click every single username on the list while holding down the Alt or Option key on your keyboard, depending on whether you’re a Mac or Windows user. This will take you to their profile tab. I normally do roughly 30 at a time.

All of these people are willing to exchange music that is comparable to yours. However, you should only share your music with profiles that have over 1000 followers. As a result, I go through those 30 profiles and eliminate any that have fewer than 1000 followers. Then I go back into Tweet Deck and replace them till I have 30 profiles with 1000 followers or until the TweetDeck feed becomes stale, with tweets from a few months ago.

Step 4: Now it’s time to get down to business with the spreadsheet

Now we’ll need to make a four-column spreadsheet.

column 1.The username of the account holder appears in

Column 2 has the name of the artist who has been mentioned in their tweets.

Column 3 shows where you are in the communication process with that user.

column 4 The date and time of the message are in

With the list obtained in step 2, fill in columns 1 and 2.

Look through your list for anyone who doesn’t have their Twitter direct messages open and follow them because you won’t be able to message them cold unless you do. For those persons, put a zero in the stage column, and we’ll come back to them later.

Step 5: Getting the Magical Stage Ready

You’ll send a message to everyone who doesn’t have a 0 in their stage column. And, just to make sure they don’t think it’s spam, you’ll say something like (rephrase to make it sound like you):

“Hey, insert name, I saw you were listening to the same Artist’s Track.” I thought it was fantastic. Thank you so much for drawing my attention to it.”

That concludes our discussion. On your first contact, you only mention that. You must wait at least 24 hours before making another contact (and to see if they answer).

Put a 1 in the stage column of your spreadsheet so you can keep track of where you are as well as the date and time.

If this is your first time using this strategy, you probably only have about 30 people on the spreadsheet.

So, for the first 24 hours, repeat steps 2–4 and increase the number on your spreadsheet until you have contacted 100 people with your initial stage 1 message (or more if you have time).

Step 6: Wait 24 hours

I know you’re eager to get your music out there and gain views and streams, but you’ll need to be patient and build a relationship first. Check for responses from the folks to whom you sent message one. They will have doubts about you and what you want. So they most likely responded with something along the lines of “yes, I really like that band.”

Now you may go back to the beginning and say something like:

“They definitely influenced me and my music.” “How did you come across them?”

The reason you’re asking that question is that the more responses you get, the more invested they become in you, and the more likely they are to share your music in the future.

You can see that you’re proving to them that there’s nothing in it for you every time. You’re simply having a conversation that enhances your relationship.

As a result, when you ask them to share your music, they are more likely to comply.

Return to the spreadsheet and enter a 2 in the stage column, as well as the date and time in the appropriate columns. We’ve returned to Stage 2 to try to get them to answer another question or send us another message.

Step 7: Getting Ready to Kill

You’ve built a relationship with these users, you’ve struck up a conversation with them, they’ve gotten to know you a little bit, and you’re ready to strike.

So, when they respond to your second message, you can say something like:

We already know they like you and will share songs that they enjoy with you.

You would devalue the entire dialogue if you asked for the share, and you would lose all credibility as an artist.

Return to the spreadsheet and change everyone to stage 3 who has received your song.

Step 8: Tightening Loose Ends

If the person has not progressed to stage 3 after three days, you can still message them with the following message. “Awesome, I adore this artist.” Also, if you have any spare time, please take a look at my music. If you like that musician, I’m confident you’ll like mine as well: link to your music.”

You have nothing to lose at this point, and because they didn’t respond, there was no chance of building a rapport (however if they do end up sharing and 3 to 5% would, don’t forget to thank them).

Also, do you recall those zeros?

Now is a great moment to see if those zeros have returned, so we can contact them and get them to stage 1 so we can restart the process.

Step 9: Rinse and repeat the process

You’ll have a viral effect on your track or music video if you can spend a couple of hours doing this hundreds of times per day. In essence, you’re building social proof for your track, since if you receive 30 to 40 retweets, other people will notice and want to listen to and share it as well. Over time, you’ll have a list of retreaters you can count on to distribute your music whenever you release something new.
