Psychology for Success In Music…
Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone… it’s kinda racy; it’s kinda scandalous; especially these days…
So, what’s the #1 music promotion secret?
THE single best way to get music out there farther and faster? The one (arguably) non-negotiable element for success in music?
Write great songs. Not much of secret is it? Everyone “knows” this right?
So why then do so few actually achieve this writing-great-songs-secret?
And who defines “great?”
If you’re interested in marketing and selling your music… OTHER PEOPLE do.
NOT only songs that YOU think are great, but songs that OTHERS think are great as well. That’s right… others who are going to stream or buy your music, others who are going to purchase tickets to your concerts and/or spend money on your merchandise, etc.
Objective others who have no vested interest in the “success” of your music.
Aerosmith says “Let the Music Do the Talking”… that’s the secret.
It doesn’t have to be any more complex than that. If the music is great, it will promote itself. Anything else you do (and should do of course) is icing on the cake.
So before you get off and onto every other “music business-related” tangent, start with crafting great songs first.
Easy? Hell no.
Now you know.

Cool site Tom, but wouldn’t you say that the secret behind the secret is content and building a list? Seems to be what you figured out here ; )

“wouldn’t you say that the secret behind the secret is content and building a list?”
Agreed. That IS the secret… “content” which results from great songwriting. The list, I believe, is best and most easily built with this great content. So which comes first the content or the list? Without the former, the latter won’t exist… at least not long-term.
