Tips from the BBC on how to make it in music.

With 20,000 track being uploaded to Spotify every day, one can only imagine how hard it is to make a living in music - let alone make it big. In an article by the BBC, they outline a couple of tips to best position yourself for a chance.


As a trend, they see that once the "Great British Public" have latched on to a hit, they take a while before they listen to new music, in such instances "... the entire top 10 was unchanged from the previous week".


Long Game - With the top of the charts being dominated by the big three labels (Sony, Universal & Warner) one hit from a new artist is not the way to break into the industry anymore - "It takes a bit longer and needs more patience". Let's all prepare for the long game, build a loyal fan base and grow on that like a social following.


Playlists - Get the initial introduction to new ears by getting your music placed within playlists that attracts new listeners. You don't have to be high in the charts to rack up a notable number of streams. (check these out - https://sidekick-music.com/2018/11/30/top-spotify-playlist-curators-2018/).
