Use Your tags
Tagging is the process that puts you in front of the right people when they’re searching for new music on Youtube. Tagging your music is all about quality AND quantity.
Quality: Keep your tags honest, if you’re a Techno producer don’t give your track a DnB tag. The clearer your tags are, the more likely it will be heard by the people who will love and share it the most.
Quantity: Youtube’s tag text field accepts up to 500 characters. Make use of that and list as many as you possibly can. The more tags you have, the more likely a listener is to use the right keyword to stumble upon your track.
Connect with the People who Love Your Music
The more popular your track becomes on Youtube, the more likely you’ll find that people will be commenting. Don’t be afraid to join the conversation and reply to them.
Explain your production process, where your inspiration came from. Ask which parts they liked the best and why. Perhaps they create music themselves, ask if you can listen to it. All of this will aid you in building a stronger relationship with your fans that will compel them to listen to, and pursue, more of your music.
Get Some Visuals
It would be ideal if everything was all about the music but unfortunately, you want to grab someone’s attention and make them care enough to take the time to listen to your track.
On Youtube you can achieve this using your visuals. Ideally, you can use a colourful, moving image so that a viewer has something interesting to watch while they listen to your music. However, if you don’t have the means to get your hands on a cool, customised animation to play with your music just yet, grab a captivating photo overlay it with your logo. There are many stock libraries where you can get hold of a royalty free image or better yet, create your own.
