Discover an Impactful Way to Tell Your Release's Story
Setting yourself apart in this industry is important. The story behind your art and music releases should be clear so that it can propel you forward as an artist. It will also help make sure that the songs are well executed to excel among thousands of other indie artists looking that are your competition.
We all have a story. Yours is what makes you relatable. It's the parts of your history and life that make people who follow along feel like they're partaking in something bigger than themselves; like this could really happen to anyone else out there. So, before we dive into how storytelling works on an artistic level let’s clear some things up: when we say “your story", please don't think about telling everything from start till finish; instead focus more specifically on those small details which make us emotionally relatable as artists (besides talent).
The release of your latest work is an important step in telling the story. To make it stand out, you need to add some introspection into how this happened and why now?
This process is all about understanding what you are trying to say. To do this, take notes of a couple of things; the event or feeling that inspired your release and how it relates to other aspects of your life such as your personal journey.
Might we suggest starting by penning down "emotional experience" and then thinking deeper into those emotions until they're spillover onto paper? The tone of voice you set for your release can make or break the success rate with which fans stick around. It's important to take into account everything from words, phrases, and dialogue tags all while considering how they relate together as one cohesive story that tells an engaging tale that each song tells.
How Do You Make It About You
Release yourself from the shackles of formulaic songwriting with our help! We will take you on a journey to create your songwriting style. Our writers are ready for whatever comes next, so start writing now and don't be afraid to venture into uncharted territory: after all it's what makes each track uniquely yours that sets them apart from every other release out there.
Just like a story, your music collection is more than the sum of its parts. Each song you release adds to an ever-growing narrative about who you are and what makes up this person; but they all play different roles in supporting that identity--which might be why it's so hard for anyone else besides yourself (and maybe their closest friends) to relate to that incident or experience. Your songs should help them unshackle the confusion.
Authenticity is the Best Policy
We all have our journeys, and no one knows exactly what they are going through. Sometimes it can be difficult to put into words but if you truly feel something deep inside then by all means express that. It doesn't matter how many followers or likes your post gets as long as each person feels connected with the story being told. They will thank you later when life offers them tough moments because now there's someone else out here sharing similar experiences just like them.
The ability to form a connection with people all over the world through your music is an important part of being in this creative field. When you let some walls down, it opens up for fans who truly want to connect as human beings and not just another celebrity on their favorite artist list. This can sometimes feel like more pressure than encouragement. We need honesty if we're going into this relationship smoothly though; without stemming from trustworthiness at its core then there will always remain something lacking between you and your audience and you won’t be able to retain them for long.
The key to creating a successful campaign is figuring out what you want and need. Once that’s done, it's time for sharing with the world through press releases or social media posts—whatever best suits your needs at this point. Keep in mind not only how others will receive information from us but also their ability (or inability) to understand our story so they can get excited too.
What's your big idea? Your message, vision, or goal for sharing what you have with the world. This should be something that inspires others and makes them want to take action as well.
Final Step: Market Your Narrative
Many things make up an artist’s story, but you should never overlook the marketing drivers. These under-the-radar forces motivate consumers to purchase certain products and services like Spotify music subscriptions in order to discover your music. They also guide artists on how best share their stories with DSPs such as TIDAL (for exclusive content), YouTube TV soundtrack releases, etc.
We know how to make your music stand out from other artists' because we have access to exclusive tools and services that will help you get noticed. The more information about yourself as an artist, the better your chance of success in this competitive industry.
Some of the common marketing drivers could be as follows:
- A list of all the music videos you’ve done. It doesn't matter if they were big or small
- Social media followers, engagement, and sharing are important for successful marketing because they can help you get ahead of your competition
- Third-party Spotify playlists since can boost your reach
- Press pick-ups make your life easier by combining the power of two motors into one
- Previous tours and shows
When submitting work to PMD Digital, you’ll need the Marketing Drivers Submissions form. This is a little more involved than other submission processes because it requires filling out all of your marketing details and corresponding social media accounts for each release—but don't worry! You can do that through our website or by sending us an email.
The story you tell with your music not only connects fans to it but also forms deeper connections between the artist and their followers. This connection is what makes them buy tickets or merch; they're invested in who's telling this tale so that when something new comes along (like an album), there will be support. With the above markers in check, you’re all but set on the correct path.
