Social media is one of the best ways to advertise your singing talent. But all music artists and singer wanabees are already streaming endless amounts of content on social media and websites to try to get that big break that you and they have been dreaming about. With all the buzzing content, it’s kind of hard to get people to recognize your talents. It might be time for a more traditional approach to get people to hear your music. An outdoor stage in a busy street will charm everyone, give everyone a taste of your music and will give you the perfect opportunity to practice your stage skills. Who knows, you might even be abler to sell a few CD’s right on the spot or even land a good music gig at an event.
Find a busy location
The more, the merrier. Try to get a busy location for your outdoor stage. Sopping centrums, in front of a mall or in a busy street are some great locations to set up your stage and if you have good talents you might even be able to score your stand for free.
You probably don’t want your outdoor stage to look messy and a lot of electrical cables can quickly make everything look untidy. Get a good quality wireless microphone so you can move around easier and so your outdoor stage will look tidier.
Prevent damage to your gear by investing in some speakers designed for outdoor use. Wireless outdoor speakers will enable you to enjoy a cleaner setup and the new outdoor speakers offers clear sound and tight bass that your listeners will love.
You need a laptop through which you can run your speakers and microphone. A laptop is ideal because you can set it up wherever you like especially if you don’t have a dedicated working area.
Do you have an entire band or are you singing along to a track? Whatever the case may be, just remember to tag along all of the music tech like DJ apps or music mixers so you can give your best performance while you are trying to get people to buy your CD’s, attend your concerts or hire you for a gig.
A good outfit that matches your music style is a must because a live performance is about so much more than just the voice. If you have better performances, you have much more to look at while people are listening to you.
You should get some business cards, flyers and posters printed so you can hand these items out to anyone interested in your music and so people will learn to recognize your band or your name. With good promotional material you can get around much easier and reach more people.
If you are also selling some of your CD’s then you will also need a tin with some change so your listeners can buy from you without hassles. Banking details can also be great for those who don’t carry cash with them.
