Crack the Billboard Charts and you may not even have time to think about how to get signed to a record label. Your phone will start ringing off the hook. Billboard Charts are music industry standard as it relates to music popularity. The charts are compiled from radio airplay, sales and streaming statistics.
I personally know record label executives who look not just at the top of the charts but at the bottom. They want to know who’s bubbling. It’s their job to sign artists who are on the brink. If you’re doing everything you’re supposed to do as an artist, which includes having a well thought out music business plan, copping a spot on the Billboard Charts is well within reason. Then, once you land on the charts, you can put your PR plan into full effect. That’ll get you a bit more interest if you do it correctly. From there, whatever is in the stars to happen for you will happen.
Don’t underestimate the role of a media outlet such Billboard can have when you’re thinking about how to get signed to a record label. Do the work and a record deal will come to you. Set out to overachineve in all that you do and even more will come your way.
