Want to build an audience for your music? Being active online and networking within your industry figures is all good, but you need to produce content in order to keep expanding your audience base.
If you only have ever written five songs, you won’t have much to attract an audience with, even if those songs are fabulous. Here’s why:
People are Forgetful
It is easy for your work to get drowned out when there are so many songs that people can listen to at any given time. You need to keep writing and putting out songs to increase your chances of being heard on a consistent basis and to build recognition.
To Appeal to Different Personalities
Everyone has different tastes. For example, some like fast-paced music while others like it mid-range or slow. Writing plenty songs provides variety and allows you to attract different personalities to your music.
Increases Your Chance of Commercial Success
If you plan to sell your music to an artist or publisher, or to have songs placed in major productions, you need a lot of material to pitch with. Many popular songwriters who have found commercial success will attest to this.
Creating content for your songwriting career is hard work, but it is necessary if you want to build an audience and achieve your goals. You can only do so by continuing to write and release songs.
