One of the mistakes made by upcoming musicians, while starting out their career, is attempting to belong to every social media platform without understanding how they work.
Every social platform varies in its structures, settings, and usage.
And for that reason, you really need to study and understand how best to use any social media platform you sign up to.
What platforms are best for musicians?

The most important thing you need to understand is that the social media platform is a collection of people from all works of life whose interest varies extensively.
It is a platform where you surround yourself with so many people, who do not share your same interest or pursue your same goal.
And because of that, you have a very great task of connecting with only those whose interest matches yours.
And if you fail to do that, you won’t be having people engaging with your content.
Among all these 5 popular social platforms we mentioned above, it is only YouTube that can allow you as a musician to upload both your audio and video content.
The other 4 are only going to allow you to share your music as a link; which means, you must upload your song to a music blog first, then get the link to share on social media platforms.
But then, social media platforms do not like links since it involves moving people away from that particular platform to another.
Now the big question is, how best should you use social media platforms as a musician?
