Internet marketing is beneficial since it aligns with how customers make their decisions and this is important especially to the musician’s selling point. In fact, the number of consumers using social media is increasing by the day, and if musicians can take advantages of such a rising trend, then they can build a strong relationship with their prospects and customers by moving away from mass marketing and embracing a more personalized communication.
In this article, we will explore some of the benefits of internet marketing to musicians;
1. Building a Global Reach:
The primary concern for most musicians is to get their music and products to a wider clientele base. That said, internet marketing provides a platform for musicians’ online-based businesses to reach millions of online users. Additionally, with online marketing strategies such as pay-per-click advertisements, social media marketing, blog/content marketing and e-mail marketing, a musician’s advertisements can reach to a global audience - and thereby lead to brand retention.
2. Cost Effective:
Internet marketing requires minimal or no start-up capital. Musicians can start e-mail marketing, social media marketing, and blog marketing with less capital compared to other forms of advertisement which mostly takes into account different factors of production such as entrepreneur, labor, and capital. Given that online marketing doesn’t involve such factors of production, it translates to a lower cost of production.
3. The Continual and Residual Effect:
One of the greatest advantages of online marketing is the residual and continual effect. The musician’s content marketing on blogs and website will always remain working and functional in promoting services and products long after the marketing campaign on your product is over.
4. Quick, Convenient and Easy Service Delivery:
Online marketing is convenient given that it has easy accessibility. Musicians will have to incur nothing if they are to reach their intended users and this removes the need to move or purchase products across the border. It is also beneficial to the musician’s fans since they can buy music, goods, and merchandise from the comfort of their phones/homes.
5. Advertisements are Geared to Target Markets:
The good thing about internet marketing is that musicians can create promo-ads that are geared towards a particular target market. When creating these ads, they can make/meet targets based on hobbies, interests, location, age, gender and so on. The musician’s genre of music will also depend on the age group they will have to target. For instance, country musicians are more likely to get sales from individuals who are aged between 35 to 75 years, while hip-hop musicians have a huge fan base for those who are aged between 18 to 30 years.
