Many musicians are constantly looking for good opportunities to get their music heard. And there are a lot of opportunities social media has in store for them. Platforms like Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Spotify and many more offer space for your songs. But once you’ve uploaded your stuff, what happens next?
Obviously you can get in touch with fellow musicians, talk about your craft, get inspired and give other artist ratings for their work in order to get rated yourself. This is all very good and there is nothing to complain about. But there is one drawback and that’s a crucial one.
The people you can connect with are mainly musicians like yourself.
So you can ask yourself: Does that help me in anyway to further my career as a musician? Maybe, if that other musician is well connected with the music industry. If not – and that must be considered true for most people on those music platforms mentioned above – then it won’t help you in any way.
Those platforms are like broadcasters – everybody wants to send their message and thus there are very few true receivers. Your message, that is your song, becomes a faint tune in the great noise emanating from those networks. And that is in most cases also true for the programs they offer to publish your songs on iTunes and the likes. With the abundance of music out there it is very hard, if not impossible, to stand out. That makes them the equivalent of a giant parking lot for your songs. And you know how hard it is to find your car in one of those.
Is Music2Deal as a social music network any different?
I can only speak for myself and I’m far from being a successful music seller. But the few success stories in my music career during the past years are almost all connected to Music2Deal. So what’s the difference?
The difference with Music2Deal is that you will find people from all over the music industry there. Lots of musicians, songwriters and music artists of course, putting their songs on display, but there’s also the opposite spectrum of the market: producers, publishers, music managers, A&R’s, labels – in other words: people who can help you lift your music to the next level.
You can listen to other people’s stuff, like you can in other networks. You can also rate other people’s music. You can connect and text with them and make your selection of favorites. But there is more.
Music2Deal offers a search feature that enables you to find not only members, but also offers. You can for example offer your music to the industry as a song, or you can offer your songs for licensing, i. e. for radio, tv, advertising, games etc. Once you’ve done that, all the industry people in your network see what you’re offering.
But you can also search for industry request.
Are they looking for a song like yours? Then simply answer that request – and who knows what happens next.
Music2Deal is constantly growing. It is based in Hamburg, Germany but you’ll find people from all over the world there, from all across Europe but also the U.S., Asia, Africa, South America and Australia. That’s a lot of opportunity to get heard. The difference is, you’ll get a great shot at getting heard by the people who really matter to you as a musician.
And the best thing of course: Music2Deal is free. Signing up you’ll get a bunch of features connecting you to the music business instantaniously. You can feature four of your songs and you can already at that stage communicate with other members.
Of course you can upgrade for more goodies by paying a reasonable fee, but without the obligation to sign a monthly subscription. So you can quit at any time without any hassle.
And if you don’t want to pay any money you can earn credits by rating other artists or by getting rated yourself. That will buy you an upgrade literally for free.
Like I said, most contacts with interesting and helpful people inside the music business I made with Music2Deal. Of all the networks this one really works for me.
Maybe it does for you, too?
Anyway, signing up doesn’t cost you any money. You can quit anytime and there’ll be no hassle. The only thing they want to make sure of is that you are serious about music. If you are, M2D may be the right place for you.
You just click on the invite-link below and figure it out for yourself.
I wish you best of luck!
