Indie musicians must be proactive in developing their marketing strategy if they want to succeed in the ever-evolving music industry. Indie music marketing is an important part of the music industry and one that requires a unique approach. From creating engaging content to leveraging social media and online platforms, indie musicians need to think outside of the box when it comes to marketing their music. They also need to be aware of trends and current events that could affect their marketing strategies. With a combination of innovative approaches, indie musicians can use marketing tactics such as targeted ads, influencer campaigns, and strategic collaborations to reach their target audiences.
If you are an independent artist or band looking for some good organic growth, we would love to help. We’ve found some great tactics through YouTube Music that are really helping our artists, so we’ve decided to help other indie artists. We do not use software and we do NOT need your login information. This is a grassroots, boots on the ground approach. All we need to know is the song / video you’re wanting to promote. If you are interested please follow the steps below to have your song considered for our Spotify Playlists. A Virmedius team member will email you if we add your song to our playlists and will follow up if we feel you would benefit from our indie music promotion.
Our main focus is getting your music in front of the right people, then they choose if they like your music and want to subscribe to your channel. So these are real likes, views, and comments.
During the indie music marketing campaign we will also –
- Add you to our Spotify Playlists that are relevant to your song. (We have 28 Spotify Playlists)
- Repost some of your Instagram posts to our owned Instagram Accounts – Virmedius, Artist Development Network, Country Music Awards (if applicable), Virmedius Records
- Retweet some of your tweets to our owned Twitter Accounts – Virmedius, Who Knew Media, Back 21
- Repost some of your Facebook posts to the Virmedius Facebook Page
- Post an Artist Page for you on Virmedius.com
INDIE MUSIC MARKETING – RESULTS
Although we have artists that have been with us for years, most artists want to know about quick results. Here are some results after working with an artist for only 3 months. We worked out a deal where this artist only paid $2 (USD) a day for ad space and they still saw great organic results.
Before adding Young Water to our YouTube Playlists and marketing the song/video it had 580 views. After just 3 months of working with Virmedius they gained 3,545 views. (Note: The date May 20, 2020 is the same in both images because that is the date the artist posted the video)
Before adding Young Water to our Spotify Playlists it had less than 1,000 plays and after 3 months they had 3,016 plays.
You keep 100% of your rights. You just pay a fee for the ads and marketing. If you are interested, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch if we feel you benefit from our services.

When asking an artist if they prefer YouTube Music or Spotify, the answer is almost always Spotify. Which makes sense as Spotify pays a little bit more. But we’ve found YouTube to be an invaluable tool for emerging artists since YouTube’s whole model is based around discovering other people’s content. So if you are marketing your YouTube videos correctly, you will receive a lot more traffic. But you will also receive organic traffic from YouTube recommending your videos to other viewers.
