It is good to have a plan, even quite specific plan if you want to succeed in music business. I’m a firm believer that by getting organised and structuring your path is the way to success.
But from time to time, it is good to just try out things that you have no idea if they will work or not. Many of the great inventions of our time are happy accidents. So from time to time, just throw mud at the wall and see what sticks. And if something works, do more of it.
For example, if most people listen to your music on Soundcloud, why not try Bandcamp as well? What do you got to lose? If you do most of your posting on Facebook, why not try Twitter for a month or so? And also do this with the music. Try something different that you ave not done before, it’s amazing how easily we resort to just routines in our songwriting, or performing. Shake it up a bit and see what happens.
