Welcome to EvO:R Entertainment
  •  The EvO:R-Pedia Musicians Tips Section

    Welcome to the EvOR Tips Section. We call this section EvOR-Pedia because it is like a complete reference library for Indie musicians...Just about every tip has been used successfully so you won't find false promises and a series of books to buy after reading each tip.

    This section was painstackingly put here by musicians, for musicians so that artists that followed can take this knowledge and use it's full power.

    It's not always who you know, sometimes you just have to read the road signs.

    Tips for Artists: How to Build Your Fanbase Using Social Networks
    By Maurice Blake

    Singing in front of an audience is part of the thorny road towards success, but having only 50 people listening to your songs, no matter how great they sound, will not bring you fame and fortune anytime soon. However, the technology advances can bring you much more tools to build a real fanbase, without having to worry where you are going to sing on a Saturday night.

    Making your own channel on YouTube
    A good start for an artist is to make their own channel on YouTube. This is where you will post all your latest creations, and where people will be able to hear you - and eventually even see you perform - and decide if you are worth their attention and so on. If you do not believe it, just search for some true stories on great artists that struck it big on YouTube. You can start with some covers of better known songs, giving them your own twist, and you will see that people are not that impossible to impress, if you have at least an ounce of talent and enough determination.

    Using only one social network for your marketing efforts would be a mistake, since people often prefer one method or another to stay in touch with their friends and their interest. For instance, if you upload a new video on YouTube, and you want to see what people have to say about it, it is a good idea to tweet about it. Even great artists tweet about their latest works, so why shouldn't you? Also, if you put enough effort into gathering enough followers for your Twitter account, you will ensure that a large fanbase will be able to listen to your songs, and then spread the word to others, as well.

    Updates on Facebook
    Another well known social network used by the young generation is Facebook. Through regular updates, you can let your friends know that you have just released a new song or a new video. Such methods are the best way to reach out to an audience that, in time, will grow to like you more and more.

    The big secret
    Do you wonder what all this tweeting and updating will do for you? It is simple. It will draw attention to you and your creations. The more people will want to listen to your songs, and will return to your channels over and over again, just to see what you have come up lately, the more attention you will receive from big shot producers, too. The money makers in this industry are interested in one very important thing: audience. If enough people are interested in what you have to show, producers will become interested, too. You may not be invited to sign a fat record deal from the very first day you will post a video on YouTube, but you will be able to show yourself as an artist, to a very large audience, and this is the most important thing.

    A Message from the founder of EvO:R
    The Independent Music world has become so fragmented that anyone entering into this arena will be lost without having a chance of survival. What every independent musicians needs is information, understanding and a path that leads to success. Sure, you can buy a few books from authors that never played a note or loaded a single amp into a moving van. Pipe dreams are all over the Internet.

    At EvO:R we pride ourselves with sections dedicated to Independent Music News called (The EvO:R Street Journal), Musicians Success Stories and Tips called (EvO:R-pedia) and a Musicians Testimonial Section called (The Goods) dedicated to Internet based companies that deliver on their promises.

    All this news and information and we don't charge a single penny. We also respect your online privacy by refusing to track your browsing habits while on our website. We simply want to deliver the BEST news, information and success stories for the Independent Musician.

    Thank-you for visiting EvO:R and tell the world that we are out here..
