It’s no secret that times have changed - the music industry is no exception.
The question everyone is asking is, “What does an artist need to do to get real fans in 2022?”
The answer to this question is not simple and straightforward. It is a loaded answer with various aspects that need to work together so it’s best described by listing them out one by one.
- Good Music
The most important thing to building a music career is good music. Even if you have the best music video, the biggest budget, the best clothes and the best service providers, you still need to have something great when it comes to music. To make the best music possible, try studying some of your favorite artists’ styles. Don’t worry if you don’t feel like you’ve achieved greatness yet - just keep going.
2. A Solid Brand
Once you have good music, the next step in creating a fan base is creating a solid brand. This means making sure you’re branding across all social media channels, digital streaming providers, and artist profiles all match and are congruent.

4. Trusted Marketing Partners
Once you have the first three steps completed you are ready to leverage marketing to get people’s eyes and ears on your content. The quality of marketing services you purchase will be directly related to the quality and amount of results you see. Some digital music promotions promise thousands of fans for next to nothing. These type of marketing campaigns are usually unreliable and don’t create any lasting results. It’s always best to find a marketing partner you can trust and build with them continuously.
