Music marketing and the whole music industry has gone through drastic changes over the last years. It seems like the constant change is the name of the game from now on.

Before the digital era, the music industry had been the same for dozens of years. Now you have to constantly educate yourself and try new trends and platforms if you want to succeed.

I would say we are currently living in an era of everything or nothing.

In this article, I’m going to cover all the interesting music marketing ideas you should try in 2020. Let’s go!


Pinterest music marketing

Pinterest is still fairly an unfamiliar platform for many people. You may be wondering, how one can possibly use a picture sharing platform such as Pinterest to promote music?

There is one main key difference when comparing Pinterest to other social media platforms. Other social media sites do not want you to leave their platform. That is why they don’t want you to add too many links to your posts, which would lead people away from their platform.



Pinterest can be also used to drive traffic to your music.

The reason why they do this is that the longer you hang out on their site, the more you see their ads and they gain ad revenue. Their algorithms favor posts, which does the best job to keep people on their platform.

Pinterest, however, encourages you to add links to your posts. This enables you to promote your music business and songs in a much effective way. All you need to do is to get traffic to your Pinterest account.


Use TikTok to market your music

This is why you should start to use TikTok, if you are not already using it. I recently created a TikTok account. By the time I’m writing this, I only have 10 followers on TikTok and I’ve uploaded 4 videos. The newest video generated almost 1000 views, even though I got so little following.

With that being said, there’s no way you could get more organic reach on any other social media site. TikTok is still growing and developing so now is the time to hop on the train and be on the driver’s seat.
