How on earth did they get signed?

Now I won't be naming any names (though there are a few I could) this just isn't that type of blog, but there are always those rappers you see on t.v. that you just KNOW you could do better. Why is it that they are signed, rich and famous, but your still struggling to even pay your rent. Well it all boils down to that old saying its not what you know its who you know. Networking is key when trying to get your name out. The more of a following you have the more likely it is to get noticed.

Social Networking

Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, familiar to everyone who uses the internet. Probably one of the top ways to connect with people within your demographic. With all the time wasted on the internet playing pointless games and watching videos, it could be used to connect with those people, get heard, and start gaining an online fan base. There are also a number of social networks online dedicated strictly to your genre of music where you can connect with others like yourself and grow as an artist with the support of the community environment.

Word of Mouth

Spread the word! A record label will definitely take notice if yo can get your home town to support you. Talk to anyone who will listen about your music. Make up business cards to give to local club owners and Dj's. Pass out your first cd for free, they have to like you before they buy anything from you.

Promotion services

There is a vast resource of promotion services online. is one I  highly recommended. These services promote your material to record label a&r's and executives for a subscription fee of course.
