Re: ReverbNation- Good Idea-Annoying Implimentation

Tried Reverb Nation once before, just didn't like it and couldn't get to grips with it ... I felt like i was in a "fake" world ... It makes no sense i know, but i do have a strange mind.

I have actually yet to come across a good platform to network with Artists (except this forum, i find this great), but you know, a profile driven network .... i use Soundcloud to host my music and that's about it !

yes that is annoying

those guys are missing the point tho. you have to create fake profiles then auto-refresh from an internet cafe. if it gets you banned, so what? reupload after refreshing your IP

anyone can take a sample pack and make something awesome out of it. i did it in sony acid when i was 15, and thought i was the shit. but those were the myspace days


the nice thing about SC is its cross compatible with social media (look at the tumblr SC player its tits).

so if youre one of the good ones who just want someone to hear your stuff (and not have some fancy notion of money and fame), then promoting through soundcloud solely is your first mistake.

network, network, network.

tumblr.

also posting fan remixes works for some

i coached a guy on production last year and i checked his SC.. he has 12k followers and averages 500-1k views per song, but theyre all fan songs of a lets player named cry. i personally dont like his music, but lots of other people do

i asked him how much he made from a single he released on BC last month... ~$350. but he still complains that hes jobless and poor. ah well taking things for granted isnt the best quality a person could have.

They are difficult to get started though. It takes a lot of diligence. Reverbnation takes a ton of money. You can advertise on craigslist. I wish I could advertise some shows there. It would probably be easier to drum up some local buzz.

Re: ReverbNation- Good Idea-Annoying Implimentation

tbh i kinda fizzled out on the promotion thing

ill just toss a link onto my tumblr and fb and call it a day.

its really tiring, and kinda detracts from the actual music making

Quick guide to tumblr. It's much easier than reverbnation.

Paste your soundcloud embed code into your profile. Follow people that post about similar artists.

You can follow me and I'll follow you back!

It's pretty simple. As you follow people, they receive an email. People come to your profile and listen to your music. Make sure to embed your music in your profile. Maybe even turn on autoplay on the soundcloud embed.

Interact with people, ask questions and develop relationships. Make sure to use a ton of hashtags or you probably won't get any likes until you get a real following.

I'm trying to do at least a post per day if anyone wants to join me.

ReverbNation: Purest shite. Got an account, which I nosey at once in a blue moon to see if they've improved. To date, they have not.

Soundcloud: I don't care about the social networking side of it particularly. I have a few followers but I don't go out of my way to promote it. Its just a place I can put up my tunes online, I don't really care about networking it within SC itself.

I've earned a total of 13 cents from reverbnation since I started it last year. Stayed #1 in vegas for the longest time, then I quit facebook and myspace and its been at 4 for a while now. Its a broken system tbh, and it can easily be abused. Not a fan. They got these new artists profiles which look cool and all but, still feels kinda broken relaying people to it.

Holy crap, I can haz a signature now?

Yikes. I just logged on for the first time in a while. Can't even add band members to the lineup without their email, and you know what that means, they all get emails now. They have to start up a 'musician profile' on reverbnation. Man this is just blowing my mind how stupid all the shit they throw at you. Bandcamp profile number 3 it is then!

Got nothing but spam from Reverbnation, all kind of "golden opportunity" bullshit that wasn't even geared to my style of music, therefore golden opportunity of no chance in hell.
