Turn Those Followers Into Fans
You may have heard people say ‘build your fan base’ when asking how to get signed to a record label. And while you may be asking ‘is there a quicker way’ or ‘how do i do that’ it’s important for you to know that this is a viable strategy to get a record deal. You build it (a fan base) and they (record labels) will come.
Record labels aren’t really too keen on taking chances. If eliminate the idea that signing you is a chance they’re taking, you’re more likely to get a record deal. By building your fan base you’re doing just that. Record labels like numbers, statistics, conversions etc. Start talking their language and not only will you win their respect from a music business perspective but you’ll also increase your chances of getting signed.
Don’t spend too much time wondering how to get signed to a record label without building a solid fan base. It used to be that talent was enough. For the majority of artists, that’s just not the reality anymore.
