So I hope you have put some of these Quick tips to use so far, registered your domain, set up a mailing list… Now here’s the thing. No matter what you do, you will always run in to a few rotten souls on your way. Lets face it, you are trying to share your music with as many people as possible. And by nature, sooner or later you will run in to one of these people who think they know how the world is supposed to be run, and anything else than their way is wrong. And of course these are the people who are very verbal online…
When you reach out to new people on your preferred social media, if you do it in an honest way, in my experience 99.9% of the people do appreciate it. But that 0.1% really know how to make you feel rotten… Well you need to build a tough skin. The most important thing is not to react to it. By rising up to it, you are lowering your self to their level. Just move on. Don’t let it get to you.
Also things like people unsubscribing from your mailing list, you cannot afford to lose sleep over that. It is actually a good thing that the people who are not really interested in what you do filter out of your list. It makes for a much stronger list. And believe me, your mailing list will be one of your biggest assets in the long run 🙂
Music business is tough business. For every two steps you take, someone will try to drag you back one step. Don’t let it get to you 🙂
