4) Perform Locally
Your local fans are the most important in this long journey to becoming a household name in the music industry. Local performances are essential to help you grow your fanbase because you have to start your buzz somewhere! It does more good for your music by having 20 fans in your hometown than it does having 20 fans across the country. Those 20 local fans can help you generate momentum within the local music scene. Thus allowing you to grow outward and expand your following/fanbase. Plus, local performances are not difficult to come by. There is always an open mic or showcase/collective of performing artists, it’s there, trust me. When you perform locally, be sure to interact with those new fans! Also, I don’t care how big you get, you should always make time for small, intimate performances in your local town. Show off what those locals helped create!
