About ten years ago, there was a local band that opened up for my band that wound up becoming extremely popular worldwide shortly after opening for us. The thing that I found amazing was the fact that I did not think that this band was any good at all, but they were somehow able to garner a huge following on the internet and turn it into musical and monetary success. Most of what they accomplished was done on social media, and so I began to get curious as to how they actually went about doing it. That was when I discovered that there were a whole bunch of different tools that you can use in order to gain views on certain sites or get likes on Instagram.
Of course, just because you get likes on Instagram this does not mean that you are going to be successful in your music career. The band that had opened up for us ten years ago got a major record deal but they were really only popular for a short time. This did not surprise me, as I never considered them to be any good, and so it was apparent to me that they had just become a short-lived fad. However, because I was very confident in my own band and I thought that we would be able to keep any fans we gained around for a long time, I decided to follow the bad band’s path and market us on social media as best as I could.
I bought followers for all of our social media pages, which allowed us to expand our fan base significantly in a very short period of time. Within a few months, we were getting offers all over the country to go out and do shows. It ultimately culminated in us setting up a US tour and getting paid to play live at venues all across the country. While we had not initially gotten as big as that other band, we were successful on that tour and made quite a bit of money both from the venues and from the merchandise that we sold. The best part about it was the fact that by touring we were also gaining even more fans all across the country, which meant that our success was snowballing and becoming even bigger than it was initially.
Eventually, we had gained so much popularity throughout the US and the world that we had multiple labels contacting us and hoping to sign us to a deal. We have now released two studio albums and we are working on our third. I never would have imagined that I could use the internet in order to create a career out of making music, but it all worked out quite well. We might not be platinum as of right now, but I think that we are all happy with the way things have turned out and the amount of success that we have seen.
