DistroKid is the easiest way for musicians to get music into iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, and more.

I like to consider myself a “go-getter”. Someone that has the will and the capability to get things done. You should think of yourself as the same! So when I wanted to release my music on all the platforms my favorite artists were on, I hit the ground running! I did my homework and I looked around. I did what you all should be doing, looking for the best way to achieve your goals!

During the time I was doing my research, I came across tons of different Aggregators. That’s a big’o fancy word for the middle man between you and the majors like Spotify and iTunes. These companies help you submit your music to all the major platforms. Some platforms only accept submissions via Aggregators (iTunes, Spotify, Tidal and so on). So you would need to be in contact with these Aggregators to even THINK of submitting your music.

While I was looking into all these different options, I did what you all do as well, shop around. These sites are different, and many have different features than the rest. I narrowed it down along the way, but I continue to use different Aggregators. Each for different features and perks. You should do your own research and as always, find what is best for you!

Now, let’s get to the good stuff!

So let’s get real for a second. I know what you’re thinking, “Why would Inviere want to help all-of-a-sudden?” Well a little disclosure on my part. I have used DistroKid for the past year now. I have looked over all the fine print, and have tried my best to get a good understanding of this company. Over the past year I have not had any major issues with them, and they seem to be solid. So, for me to put this much into something, should prove that this is not a scheme. DistroKid has many features that are great for up and coming musicians. I’ll get into that later on, but one of these features is the referral program.

What is the Referral program? Well when a major company wants to expand its customer base. They give incentives to their users, that share their service. This is like other services and games where you invite your friends to sign up in return for perks. But this is no game, and this is not for entertainment! This is to help give you (the artist) a chance to get your music where you want it. This is a chance to move your career further, and a chance to step up to another level. Do I get something out of this? Sure. Is it something major, no. What is it exactly? It’s a chance for me to earn extra income, while getting the word out about a product that has helped me.

Making Time…

Do you ever feel like you’re running out of time? That every moment, is slipping away while you do all the little things throughout your day? I hate that feeling! It is always easier to sit down at the couch, flip on the tube, as your precious time ticks away. But, we are not here to do the easy stuff. We are here to work on our dreams, and get shit done! In this edition, I want to go over what I do when time seems to be slipping away from me, and what to do when productivity dips. Lets get it!

What do you find yourself making time for?

Tip #1 – Just get started!

Sometimes the hardest part of anything, is getting started. Have you ever noticed that once you make the decision to start something, the entire process gets a little easier? That the entire process starts to fall into place, and you start knocking out whatever it was that needed to be done. This is one if the biggest realizations that I had when it came to my work. I noticed that once I actually started working on something I was able to focus and get more done.

So the next time you have trouble getting with a project, just get started! The pieces will fall into place once you start working. Your mind is a powerful tool, and sometimes it works against us. So become a master of this tool, and don’t let your mind play you for a fool!

Tip #2 – Stay Consistent

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your empire! It’s great to have one project completed, but don’t kick your feet up quite yet! The next project, the next blog post, or recording session is just around the corner. Now with the average American’s attention span dropping to a whopping 8 seconds (the goldfish has 9 seconds) we have an extremely limited window to reach our audience. So staying constant is more than a must, it’s a make-or-break virtue you must embody.

To overcome this, I like to picture a crowded bar where everyone is trying to get the attention of the bartender. In this example, the bartender is your audience. So instead of going up to the bar, patiently waiting for your turn, and eventually getting looked over, let’s make sure that bartender knows you’re there! I do this by making blog posts that resonate with my readers, I post video’s on my many Instagram profiles dropping some knowledge. I create content that would help me stand out in the crowded room. A major part of this is staying consistent and always working. The more content you create, the more your audience has to consume. This is like going up to the bartender, cracking a joke and making a big order, THEN coming back for more. This way the bartender (audience) remembers you, and wants to keep an eye out for your next offering.

Tip #3 – Think about the money/Time you’re wasting!

Now this one is the one that gets me moving almost 100 percent of the time. I want you to think about your money, specifically the money you invested in your work. Think about that $35 a month software subscription. Think about that $800 camcorder that is collecting dust in the corner of your studio. Now if this hasn’t gotten you up off the couch, I think this next one will get you up. Think about the people that believe in you. Think about your friends and family that you LET DOWN when you don’t create content!

I believe that wasting someone’s hope and losing their trust is the absolute worst thing you could possibly do. Especially in a business where you depend on people to listen to your music, read your blog, or watch your videos. So if you have the money to throw away, I want you to realize that people are not so disposable. So please, don’t let your supporters down! Keep working so they can be more proud of the things that you do, keep them supporting you! Show them that you are worth supporting, and make them proud to say that they believed in you from the start.

Conclusion

So, there are a lot of things out there that can distract you from accomplishing your goals. It is up to you whether you let it stop you or if you’re going to make time for your projects. You can tell a lot about a person from what they invest their time into. Do you want to be known for wasting time and never accomplishing anything you started? Or do you want to be the person that absolutely kills it at everything they start? The choice is yours. Be well my friends.
