I enjoy improvising melodies and chordal patterns on my keyboard and guitar. I often toy around with an idea until I am able to create (what I consider to be) an attractive phrase.
To ensure that I do not forget my new musical creation, I usually make an audio recording. Later, I revisit the idea to investigate if the melody still sounds the same to me. Many times when I take a break then return to the melody, new developmental ideas will come to me.
After I complete the composition I upload it to my computer to tweak the sound. Sometime during this process I work on the album cover art and then I upload it and the music file to Amuse.io. They in turn submit it to 29 streaming service providers in 159 countries for free. They keep an eye out for songs that begin trending.
Then I advertise on Facebook, Google, and upload the audio file to a radio host named Paul at phoenixfm.
Through Facebook's demographics I can target a specific audience. I like the way that Facebook lets me set a low budget, only charges me for conversions, and how it shows me some analytical information about the age, gender, and location of those who respond to my ads. While it is not very specific and certainly it does not include any personal information about my audience, it helps me to understand better who it is that I should aim to please the most.
I also try to reach customers through Google ads on the internet. Like Facebook, Google only charges me for customers that actually interact with my advertisement although the minimum price is higher.
Radio show host Paul at phoenixfm will promote any song that I upload and informs his 100,000 listeners in France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, and the United States about me and my music. He has been quick to remind me that he cannot guarantee that his show will increase my streaming traffic, but I have noticed an increase whenever I have employed his services.
I appreciate Paul's candor and friendliness. His use of encouraging expressions and his descriptive presentation of the facts about my music and my business on his radio program "Rising Stars" appear very genuine and natural. I am impressed that recently when promoting my new song "Mayhem" he remembered that he had featured a couple of my songs earlier even though it was years ago. Whenever (or if ever, LOL) my business becomes profitable I intend to contract with him much more often. I found him at www.fiverr.com. I only tried one of Paul's competitors once because the demographics of that man's audience was different, but I was not so nearly impressed with that man's service at all as I am with Paul's.
