Without waste of time, let’s get to it.
Contents! Contents!! Contents!!! is what you will hear everyone knowledgeable in the online world talk about. Because the only thing that feeds people and keeps them online is content.

Do you want to listen to music, watch movies, do comedy skits, etc? Then you have to go online immediately.
If is there any subject or topic you are willing to learn, then just go online and you will be able to do so.
As a musician trying to succeed in the music business, you must be able to produce contents that align with people’s interest.
Therefore, below are the 3 basic Content ideas to help you build your fanbase on social media.
- Entertaining content.
- Educating contents.
Documentaries are those contents that cover, either what happened or is ongoing in your life and musical career.
Could be a studio session where you are recording your new song, or even how you are doing the composition at home.
When you are performing live, you can get someone to record some of the footage.
It doesn’t necessarily need to be professional camera coverage as you can do that with your smartphone.
Another documentary you can create is an additional talent that you have. For example, if you know how to play the keyboard, you can make a live recording of how your routine for playing your keyboard.
Whatever is going on in your life and career forms the basis of documentary content you should be using to build your dedicated fanbase as a musician on social media.
Because while doing this there are lots of people that are going to either identify with your or do it for the sake of empathy.
Ensure that whatever you are doing ignites the emotions that will make people inclined toward you.
2. Entertaining content.
Entertaining contents are simply the display of your musical skills.
This ranges from your official audio and music videos to freestyle videos, covers, and viral videos.
As in documentaries, if you also have an additional skill like comedy; you can as well use it to entertain your audience, but do it in a musical way.
3. Educating content.
Educating content is what am doing right now. That is teaching you the things I know about the music industry.
And you can do this as well.
Even if you don’t have the money to get your own official blog or website, there are platforms that can help you create a free blog or website for yourself.
