It’s possibly the most challenging phase of growth that many amateur musicians face.
How do I get more fans to listen to my music?
Where exactly can I find more new fans?

These are all the right questions you as a growing musician should be asking yourself. Each musician is an artist with their own unique and distinct music. It means that every artist has his/her unique challenges on how to put their music out there to be heard.
The ultimate key to being successful in the promotion of your music to more fans is by thinking strategically and creatively.
You should make an effort to get your music recorded on a compilation CD digitally so you have examples to share with people.
Social media is your friend and there is a ready-made audience just waiting to hear your music, join Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Reddit and any others where you may be able to get your music in front of people.
You should make an effort to get on a compilation with other musicians featuring your music, as well as the songs by any other artists. By doing this, you can automatically promote your music to not only your niche but also to the fans of all the other musicians who are featured on the album.
When you can release a compilation album, then you produce a record featuring your kind of music, as well as the songs by any other artists. By doing this, you can automatically promote your music to not only your niche but also to the fans of all the other musicians who are featured on the album.
You should be the type of musician who gives people a reason to become your fan and be eager to listen to you anytime. To be a master of music promotion you should have the ability to know how to encourage a greater percentage of your audience to buy your music and turn your listeners into more loyal fans to your music.
It can be achieved by providing some incentives which can only be obtained by the fans who buy your music for instance, you could accord fans backstage passes, t-shirts or fan party tickets.
The above are just pointers to lead you on the right path to expanding your fan base. Be simple, be creative, be collaborative, be strategic and always be smart in all the decisions you make.
