Music Video Placement: Getting Started
As a musician it may feel like you can only control so much. However, while your initial focus should be on creating great high-quality music – you will quickly learn that branding is everything. Furthermore, a brand transcends more than the visual or audio representation. A well-produced brand is a presence. Brand awareness goes beyond a color scheme or a recognizable logo. For example, think of cotton swabs. If you showed one to a group of people, many people would refer to it as a “Q-tip”. Why is that? How did “Q-tip” become the most common name for a cotton swab? The answer is brand awareness. For musicians, it is not easy to define a genre by one artist. Although, if you were to ask somebody to name some popular artists within a genre, it is likely there will be a few common artists mentioned. This is achievable by expanding your audience. Music video placement is a great way to start.
