1. Make Sure Your Music Is Consumable
Before you prep towards promoting your music, make sure it is consumable, meaning, your music should be good enough not some wack sh*t.
How do you know your music is good enough? Get feedback from respected people in the industry first. Build relationships with producers and ask them if they like a track. Once at least 60% of them think it’s worth sharing, take that as a go-ahead because producers will be more critical than your fans.
2. Be A Brand
