If you are ready to take a giant leap forward and expand your music business – READ THIS PLEASE!
Musicians - Follow My Tested And Proven Signature Social Media Marketing System and Discover How You Can Get Massive Exposure, Die-Hard Fans,
and Build a Tribe... (so you can stop wasting time and money!)
Your 9-Week Online Success Blueprint
The average musician is failing miserably when it comes to marketing their music and creating a successful career.
Musicians are trying to replicate what superstars are doing. Major labels spend millions of dollars trying to create massive awareness using commercial radio, traditional publicists, buy-ons to national tours and other antiquated methods that are not effective.
You can not buy your way to the front of the line – even if you have an enormous budget to blow!
And here’s why…
I could go on and on for pages about the importance of marketing yourself effectively, but I’d rather point to true HARD FACTS to paint the real story..
Here are a few stats I picked up at The Pivot Conference from a survey reported by Alison Hillhouse (MTV/ VIACOM)…
Most music is discovered through friends on social media so if those friends aren’t talking about you online you won’t go “viral”
Online – It’s all about coming up with your own personal brand identity and that is influenced by the artists you love – If you don’t have a clear personal brand you are not going to attract attention
85% of all music lovers say they have eclectic taste – with technology they can find Etta James, Dave Matthews, Drake and Aerosmith all mixed together in a seamless playlist – There is no reason why YOUR music shouldn’t be included in the lineup
76% of respondents have a stronger connection to musicians who share on social media
Fans are demanding total interaction from artists – More is EXPECTED from the artists now
Buying the music is SYMBOLIC PATRONAGE – you must earn it — this has nothing to do with ethics (i.e I am only paying money out of respect, because this artist uses social media, they therefore deserve my respect)
Everyone Thinks They Know How To Use Social Media but few can actually use it effectively to build a fan base.
For anyone looking to get more exposure it can be the silver bullet.
However, a vast majority of you are using social media all wrong.
You’re on a mission to get your music out to the world.
I want to help you build the RIGHT fan base; one that will support you on your path to becoming a self-sustaining, successful musician.
In order to make this happen, you need to make a foundation; combining strong personal brand and killer digital strategy.
And I’m on a mission to help you make it a reality – using the most effective marketing methods in the world.
You’re missing that ONE thing to focus on that will actually increase:
your fan base
your Return On Investment (ROI)
Here ‘investment’ means your time as well as any money you spend marketing and promoting your music.
I want to help you build the foundation for your fans so you can attract Industry (not be a turn-off) and stop wasting time and money!
“Ariel Hyatt has been my PR guru and social media mentor for 12 years now.” – Derek Sivers
“[Ariel’s] insight into the “new” music industry is invaluable”
“Ariel is one of the sharpest people I know! Her insight into the “new” music industry is invaluable. Her expert teaching and consulting advice should be required for every artist.”
“I’m more hopeful, confident and inspired than I was 9 weeks ago.”
“Participating in Social Media House has resulted in building a website, developing an email list, getting dialogue going about my music with new fans, starting a fruitful mastermind group which has led to multiple important contacts, and writing my first blogs which got picked up immediately by a niche market I’d been targeting. Perhaps most importantly, I’m zeroing in on my ‘brand’. I’m more hopeful, confident and inspired than I was 9 weeks ago.”

Getting social media right is more relevant than ever.
