Promote Your Music Like A Drug Dealer

Mixtape Promotion Drug Dealer Still

If you don't know the drug game is a 2.5 trillion dollar industry and growing.Yeah, I know drug dealing is against the law, but  it doesn't mean you can't learn a thing or two from how they operate their quote on quote business lol.
Here are somethings you can learn from the dope game that you can apply to your music business: 

Don’t take your product aka mixtape or single  for granted

Drug dealers  don't just get into beefs because of location. They also get into it with rival drug dealers who have a better product then they do. They understand your only as good as your product ad the person with the best product makes all the money. Plus when your product is good you do have to put alot of work into selling it because it sells itself.
How this relates to your music is:
Try to make the best mixtape or single in your niche make sure it has a catchy title and in this case also fire graphics that will make them want to purchase your product.You need a professional mixatape cover from a professional music graphic designer. Just like if you got the best dro that looks and smells good its gonna sell.So make sure your product (mixtape or single) cover art is fire and people will want to buy it. Plus when you have the best product in your market people get addicted to so give them quality hit after hit. You don't want to give your customers a shitty product because they will always be searching for better quality.  

Word of mouth  marketing

How many times have you seen a drug dealer advertise their product on t.v, a magazine, or on a billboard? Exactly you haven't! You want to know why? They know word of mouth is the best form of advertising you can get.Drug dealers know having people telling other people that you have the best product out there is the best form of marketing you can get .
How this applies to your music.
If you have a  dope product aka your mixtape or single that your target market lovers, they will  talk about it and tell all  their friends about how good it is and even share it on their social media sites which gets your product aka mixtape or single into front of more and more people.I'm not saying you shouldn't spend money promoting your music.I'm just saying  when other people cosign  for your product it increases your exposure and sales.
Giving Away Samples Of Your Product To Get People Addicted
Seriously do you really think grocery stores started the giving away free samples of your product business model? No sir! Drug dealers have been using that tactic since the beginning of time.  
Drug dealers are all about giving a free sample of their product to reel people in.They know their product is quality and once you get a sample you'll back for more and then they can start making money off of you.
How this can apply to your music:
If you want to get your mixtape out their fast and create a buzz. Take your quality product and get it out to your target market.Make sure you only give them a small sample to reel them in. You can give away a single off of your mixtape, or you can give away snippets of the songs that are on your mixtape. Then once they see your product is quality  you can charge a $1 for your future singles or $5 for the mixtape and fans won't mind spending money with you.

It's always better to be the brains of the operation instead of being the face. 

If your out all day networking, talking to venues, and promoting your music you'll never have time to focus on creating and recording hit reocords.So would you rather do the all the grunt work or would you rather have other people handle it for you?

Exactly, the smart drug dealers aren’t doing the hand to hand transactions with the users in the streets. There behind the scenes figuring out how to get the product in, how to keep a low profile, and supplying the street dealer who then do the foot work and distribute the drugs.
They also understand that hustling in the street increases your chances of getting caught and you have to do alot of small transaction which equals up to know money at all. So they just supply the dealers and sit back and stack up the money.
If you want to make it in this oversaturated music niche and get rich you can you just have to go about it drug dealer style like this....

Don't waste your time doing passing out flyers, talking to venues, posting your music on social media all day etc you need to have a team of people who handle this for your point blank period.Example Big meech had a team of hundreds of people that's how he got so rich he was the brains behind the scene he supplied the team they did the grunt work.

You need to focus on your recording hit records, dropping dope videos , and figuring out your next play your going to make to grow your brand not handing out flyers and other bs things.
You need to focus your energy and time on the harder stuff that matters. It's easier to give someone a task to do then it is to have someone come up with your overall markeitng and branding strategy.

The Everythings For Sale Motto

Drug dealers have more drive then most business owners seriously! Don't you notice how drug dealers never stop hustling? They have more upsells then Mcdonalds and they're always trying to figure out more ways to make money off their existing customers. They might have new drugs, or even a higher quality product so they say lol than what they usually have. Either way they are always trying to make more money off of you non stop They’re always trying to figure out ways to make money off of you. Whether it is selling you a better product or new drugs, they never stop selling.
So when it comes to your music and your brand handle it like a drug dealer and have everything for sale and never stop upselling your products to your existing fanbase. Just like a drug dealer keeps their ear to the streets you need to do the samething.

For example if there is a new type of shirt people are wearing start selling it and customize it with your brand or a phrase from one of your songs people like and cash in. People smoke vape pens do find a wholesaler they will customize the vape pen with your logo BOOM there is another one to cash in. I'm pretty sure you see where I'm going with this.
Whatever you do, don’t forget about upselling as it can start becoming a huge portion of your income.

The Re-Up

Drug dealers know it takes money to make money and  they will never get to Big Dog status without re investing their profits. They know if they just keep buying the same amount they will get the same results. So they reinvest more each time to get more product to make more money  thats the only way  to get to the next level and start making the real money.

You need this apply this to your music grind also. Once you start generating money from your music,shows, or merchandise don't go trick it off and celebrate with a bottle or go to the strip club. Reinvest that money into more marketing to reach more people, or buy more cd's, or merch to flip so your money keeps growing. Then rinse repeat.
It's harder to get a new customer then it is to keep an old one happy 
We all the know it's hard to get newmusic fans from other areas who haven't heard your music before. Yes, drug dealers even deal with this also, but this is why they do whatever to keep their clients happy. From giving them drugs on credit until they get more money or hooking them up with a larger amount then expected. All just to keep them happy and coming back to them. 
Your main focus shoudn't be just trying to get new fans. You should also focus on your exisitng fans and making sure they're happy and connecting with your music and brand. Your fanbase should be increasing and not decreasing. You just have to make sure your maintaining  your releatonship with your fans and giving them new content free and paid to keep them engaged.

The whole is to maximize the lifetime value of your fans and turning them into lifetime customers.

Final Conclusion

In no way shape or form was this post to make you want to become a drug dealer even though they do make alot of money it's illeagal and a dead end road. Instead  I wanted to show you marketing techniques that are proven to work for any type of business that will take your music career to the next level if you apply them.
So, what type of other marketing stratagies do you think you can learn from a drug dealer to apply to your music? Please comment below

As an independent artist the hardest thing to do is fund your own music career. That's why alot of artist get investors, but the thing is everyone doesn't have access to the right investors based off of where they or that might not just have investors who really focus on the music niche.

How To Be A Successful Independent Artist Like Nipsey Hussle, TechN9ne, Yo Gotti And More

F**CK A Record Deal

To make it as an independent artist takes non stop grind, calculated music marketing tactics and dedication, but it's well worth it in the end.

People see artist like Nipsey Hussle, E-40, and Tech N9ne living a lavish lifestyle, and making more money then artist on major labels, but nobody see's the behind the scenes work these artist put in day in and day out for years so now they can afford to live that lifestyle.

Tech N9ne is the definition of independent artist. He has been building Strange Music for almost 20 years now. The point is that music artist don't need a major label nowadays to make a living from their music.But it takes a certain type of person with dedication, non stop grind, and that attitude to keep going no matter how hard it gets.

After talking to thousands of independent artist who are making a good living from their music. Here are a few thing every independent artist should know if they wan to be successful

Marketing Plan

Marketing is raising awareness around your brand or product to the public, but in a non invasive way. I see alot of artist who just post their thinks all over peoples pages and tag hundreds of people in their post it might be annoying to people,but that is still a form of marketing it might not be that effective but its marketing.

If you want to get real results for your new release you can't just tag people and post links on their site that isn't going to grow your fanbase and sell your music.You need to come up with an effective marketing strategy that involves you connecting your target market and building a relationship with them.

Work Ethic And Hustle

Floyd Mayweather said it best “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.” That applies to the music business to.Whether you like em are not the artist that are making money in the music game now are consistent as hell and stay on their grind. Artist like Young Dolph, Curren$y, Young Thug, Yo Gotti, and Gucci Mane all have a non stop work ethic that's how they drop so much material in one year. Gucci Mane was still dropping music consistently even when he was locked up.

If your trying to make it in the music industry you need to know from jump that it takes HARD WORK for real it's more then just making music. The same work you put into creating your mixtape or album you should put it into promoting your music, connecting with with your fans thru social media, and learing the business side of the music industry. It's non stop work 24/7

Understanding The Music Industry

This is how it works and Wedy Day the person responsible for getting Cash Money Records one of the biggerst records deal in the history of music said it best. "You have 2 choices either learn how aspect of the music business work and build your own connections are like Kevin Gates you hire a good team who already connections or experience in the business.Even if you hire a team you should still educate yourself thouroughly on how the music business works this way you understand the fundamentals of the business so nobody can pull a fast one on you.

We see it everyday an artist says they got hustled out of money from their label, but really they didn't they just didn't know what they were signing bcause they were not educated on how the business works.What they say is true Knowledge Is Power.

A Solid Team (Not a bunch of rappers)

The worse thing you can do as an independent artist is think you can do everything on your There is only 24hrs in a day so you need you a team who can handle the task that you complete.Every successful artist has a team it's mandatory.

Good people to have in your arsenal are a manager, promoter, tour manager, lawyer, and a graphic designer. Your graphic designer plays a big role on your team becasue they create all you visuals that pepople see before they hear your music, or visit your event. You need a graphic designer who specializes in creating mixtape covers and branding material for independent artist.

Release Tons Of Content

You develop a good relationship with somoene by commuunicationg with them on a regular basis right? Well, the samething applies when your trying to build your fanbase you have to commuicate with your fans if you want them to become superfans.

Unless your Eminem or Kayne West who can dissappear for 2 years and come back like they never left, your need to be creating and distributing content so you can stay intouch with your fans. Your content can be anything you recording, you with your team posted up, dice game , anything that brings them into your world.

You Need To Have Dope Music

I'm not gonna be around the bush with this one. You need have dope music point blank periord.You need something catchy, that your target market can connect with. Otherwise it won't work.

Custom Pendant Design For Cheap- Don't Get Your Pendant Created Until You See This

 Don't Get Ripped Off When You Purchase Custom Jewelry

Guest Post :By "Mr.32 Degrees" Da Jeweler

Getting a custom pendant is good way to show your uniqueness and/or make your brand standout .Jewelry is a valuable item and your jewelry represents you as a person and every person and brand is unique, plus you don't want to have the same jewelry on as 1000's of other people around the world, so it makes sense to get a custom pendant created.that will make you standout from everybody else.

Before you go to your local or online jeweler and get overcharged to get your custom pendant created, here are a couple of things you should take into consideration before hand,so you can get your custom pendant created for a cheap price,while still receiving the exact same quality you would get if you purchased a custom pendant design from any other small or large corporate jewelry company anywhere in the world.

 Make sure they that if your getting your pendant created from a brass or silver base that that it is triple plated and finished with at least a .5mm layer of e-coating. E-coating is a process where your jewelry is  immerssed in a bath of an electro-phoretic paint emulsinthe that adds an ultra fine transparent layer on your jewelry that protects the brass or silver so it won't tarnish. Every professional custom jewelry designer who takes pride in providing their clients with a one of a kind hi quality product that will last forvever will use the E-coating process because it make the jewelry keep it's vibrance and shine forever

Getting a custom pendant created isn't as expensive as people think, of course there are several factors like the material you use brass, silver, gold or platinum. The type of diamonds you use Si1's to lab made diamonds.But the price really depends on who your dealing with, is it a middle man company or is an actual jeweler who creates the custom pendants themselves. 80% of the sites are middlemen and the price relflects it. I've personally created custom pieces for 1,000's of clients everything from music artist,record labels, businesses, and your everyday mom and dad.

Everytime clients tell me the quotes that they get from their local jeweler in the middle of the mall or at a Kay's type jewelery store my price is at least $800-$1,000 dollars cheaper for the exact and I mean exact same custom pendant, why because they are just a middle man company so they have to outsource the work , and they have  alot of overhead from employee's, power bills etc so the price reflects all of those things.

The same thing applies to majority of the online jewelry store also when the clients tell me the quote they received compared to my price for the exact same pendant same material, diamonds, and size. and it still beat them by at least $5oo.Like I explained earlier there just a middle man like your local jeweler who outsources the work so they have to charge more because they don't get wholesale prices but their price will be less than a local jeweler becasue they don't have any overhead besides web hosting which is $9.99 a month. 

The reason why I can provide my client with the exact same item for a cheaper price is because I'm an authorized diamond dealer and jeweler so I receive all of my materials 80% below market price which allows me to give my customers a 50% cheaper rate than any local or online jeweler who is just a middle man jewelry company that doesn't create the jewelry themselves.

There is no middle man when you deal with us.Me and my trained team of jewelry designers create every piece of jewelry by hand at our factory.We understand how important it is to make sure your custom pendant comes out exactly how you envisioned it that''s why we walk you thru every part of the creation process with us step by step from creating the C.A.D design to us setting the diamonds and plating your pendant.
