Do you have a dream or a goal that you've been sitting on for awhile? There's no time like the present to start making that thing happen, you know. For me, it was releasing my music to the word. Well..
I have great news! I have finally released one of my songs! I had recently wrote another song and decided to just go ahead and release it. Mind you I didn't do any kind of release campaign to build up momentum for it. I just jumped the gun and went for it anyway. I learned how to convert a Garageband file into a mp3 file, which wasn't that hard to do, and I posted it on my website with a ‘Buy’ button. I officially posted the song the night of February 27, 2023 so I could that was it's official release date, but I told the world about it the next day, February 28, 2023. Talk about ending the month with a bang, right?
You wanna know how many people bought the download so far at the time of this post? None…Yup, that's what I get for not doing a release campaign. I'm disappointed of course, but I know I‘ll get sales eventually. I mean, it’s a new song that was only posted on SoundCloud and not even for that long before I decided to release it as a download. So, it's not like alot of people knew about the song, but I was hoping the buzz from ‘Kaleidoscope’ would carry over and create a desire to finally be able to buy a song from me. Lesson learned.
Note to self: in the future, always do a release campaign. I don't have time to promote something that doesn't already have buzz behind it. I admit, I was impatient and when I was sitting on a mp3 I could finally share, I just jumped into it and released it.
Shameless plug: You can buy my song, Jammin', on my website right now. And if you get it now, I'll give you 'Kaleidoscope' when I release it! Release date to be determined.
Have you listened to ‘Jammin’' or bought it? What's your thoughts on it? Remember, I'm just getting started here….
