Everybody wants to be a rapper... Everywhere I look theres a new artist trying to get that big break, million dollar contract or become that next music mogul. Really who could blame them in the urban community its become the american dream, with all the lavish houses ,400k cars, beautiful women and over the top jewlery flaunted by the hiphop heavyweights theres no wonder a kids growing up in the city can visualize becoming a world famous rapstar as opposed to a doctor , lawyer or teacher. what I 'll be discussing today is some of the best ways to market your indepedent music in todays music climate and how you can stand out amoungst the thousands of artist, popping up everyday wanting that same piece of that new american dream

. There are certain prinicipals to live by when your marketing own music the first thing is to

Establish your own unique style:sound or look you cant hope to be next thing by doing what already been done. Everyone has something different about them that sets the apart nuture that something getting notice, means standing out.

The next thing is to build your brand and become that brand. Figure out who you are as a artist, polish it up, and sell sell sell. Remember people buy YOU before they buy your services or products. which brings me to my next thing

Be likeable in the virtual world we are living in no one has the time or the work ethic to reach out to the fans and get that personal feed back. Old methods of marketing are still effective way to sell yourself, build a fanbase and most importantly build a network that could feel like they have vested interest in your future sucess.

Another way is to cross promote or cross marketing: there many companies that need to try to reach out to your potential fans. you could approach a start up clothing company about wearing some of there designs in your photo shoots or in one of your videos in exchange for the promoting of your cd on there website. or something within the scope of there marketing efforts but you get the picture the standard quid pro quo and there are hundreds if not thousand of possibilities start brainstorming and building your brand.

Thats just some of the things you can do to set your self apart in this saturated rap industry . GOOD LUCK & GOD BLESS
