Step 2 - Get Your Artist Name on All the Web Property You Can

Get PDF Version 

Get Kindle Edition 

Get all the web channels you can with your artist name …
“own” them.

For instance:
Your Soundcloud page –
Your Bandcamp page –
Your YouTube channel –
Your Facebook page –
Your Twitter page –
Your Instagram page –
Your Tumblr page –
Your Google+ page –
Your LinkedIn page – as your real name, not your artist name
Your Pinterest page –
Your Flickr page –
Your Website –

In addition to these social media pages and your domain,
there are a lot of musician social networks,
including ones more relevant to your style.
Current popular social networks for hip hop/rap/RnB artists
include DatPiff, LiveMixtapes and SpinRilla.
There are lots of other music social networks worth being on,
so that you know that you own your own
name on that network from the beginning.

It’s not the purpose of this guide to list all the music social networks.
Review Google’s search results for
“music social networks”
to find some that suit you.
It’d be worth finding a few that you think would benefit you
(your networking, communications) and sign up to them.

As well as all the above sites,
register your artist name on
any relevant discussion forums
you could potentially participate in.

This action needs to happen
even before working out
which pages you plan to actively communicate on.
That is, get all the possibilities you can with your artist name,
and afterwards work out what to do with the possibilities you have.
This is a one-time task that will take you 2 to 6 hours to complete.

Note also that this is a research stage that can serve your communication plan
(described in “Step 7. Create a Communication Plan“).
During this stage, keep your eye out for opportunities:
Do these sites have active communities of people who might like your music?
If they do, note them for later reference.

Also, at this stage, don’t waste your time filling in profile info.
Most of these sites try to make you add your profile photo,
write about yourself, invite your friends, and fill in other info
about yourself right after you sign up.
Don’t do all that yet.

All you need to do at this stage is just sign up
to the sites and own your artist name as their URL.
