Make a Video by Max Jam

Make a video, even if it’s just you performing the song start to finish. People are really hooked on visual content and videos make songs sound more stimulating.

Use the best camera you can. One solution would be to rent a Canon EOS Rebel t_ _ (the one they did that commercial with) for a day. Should run you about $250.

A particulary good software to use (but not free) is Cyberlink PowerDirector. Tons of effects, no freezing.

Put the video on Youtube, but also visit this site: http://www.ovguide.com/browse_sites?c=music&ci=407

They’re not all suitable, but many are great and some might be tailored to your genre.

Once you’re there, subscribe to other people whose followers would like you. Always meta-tag all your movies identically so that they all come up if one does.
