Description

This course if designed to help aspiring rappers, hip hop artist, or any genre of music artist set up a video launch to make them more discoverable and get the best results. Many rappers are making great music, and great videos, but no one is showing up to watch. This was first recorded as a private and secret training for some of my Instagram followers/students. It got such a great response that now I’m making it available to everyone. This course will cover:

  • Defining who you should be marketing to

  • Keyword research so you can create the perfect title, description, and tags

  • Why you should Stop Using Worldstar and Your Favorite Artist name in your tags

  • Get a competitive advantage over other artist with a thumbnail

  • Why you should upload it to YouTube but not release it immediately

  • To Buy Views or Not to Buy Views: That is the Question

  • Now that it’s live: Marketing Tips

  • Final Two Extra Tips: Keep them on the platform and tracking traffic

This music video course is perfect for beginners or professionals. I show you simple techniques that don’t require you to be a search engine optimization specialist but these techniques even the major labels are missing.

There is a great opportunity for the indie artist in this internet era but making great music alone will not get you discovered. Everyday I watch great videos where people have clearly spent thousands of dollars in production but in 9 months they only have 179 views. The song is fire. The video is quality. Yet, crickets.

There are over 300 hours of content being uploaded to YouTube every minute. Labels are putting big money behind their new artist to get them discovered. How can you compete? You need to have some business and marketing skills. My goal with this course, as with all my courses, is to help you quickly acquire those skills so your audience can find you. I GUARANTEE if you follow all these steps to the letter that your views will increase drastically.


Who this course is for:
  • Aspiring rappers or music artist from any genre who desire to have more people hear their music and see their videos
  • Hip Hop artist who are going to launch a music video soon
  • Music artist who have created a music video in the past that got very few views
  • Social Media Marketers, Music Managers, or Label who desire some new techniques to build their music artist brand and exposure
