3 Ways Indie Bands Can Use Fiverr To Their Advantage

Fiverr is a powerful way to promote your band. So why aren't more indie bands taking advantage? The quick answer is: They are stuck in an old model of thinking. Bands who use Fiverr to their advantage will gain valuable exposure guaranteed.
Nov. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- In the ever-evolving music industry of today, many musicians have absolutely no clue as to how to promote themselves. Some do nothing and hope for recognition. Others set up a facebook page and a twitter account and set up shop bothering their friends with countless requests. Still others who have the right idea contact independent music blogs and publications requesting real coverage. However, many of these independent publications have become flooded with requests from bands, sometimes numbering in the hundreds per day. There must be other ways to generate real press.

Fiverr.com is one of those ways, and it is a powerful tool when used properly. Here are some of the many promotion opportunities available to independent bands on Fiverr.

1) Getting interviews. This can be a great way to rank higher for your chosen keywords, and to raise your band's profile in your chosen niche. The more people see your band name popping up on their favourite independent music sites and blogs, the more chance they will finally click that link and download your new single. It's all about speaking your truth, and Fiverr puts the power back in the hands of those with an entrepreneurial spirit.


2) Buying advertising. Choose wisely and you can land yourself some excellent deals on banner advertising. Make sure it's placed on a relevant website catering to your niche. Remember, major labels spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising. You're kidding yourself if you think that people will find you with no introduction.

3) Getting reviews. Have an issue with paying 5 dollars for about 15-20 minutes of someone's time? If so, you may want to consider playing music as a hobby because many hard working artists who respect both sides of the industry are outsourcing their promotions in smart ways, such as buying reviews on Fiverr. Many of these reviews are on quality websites that can give your band valuable exposure. This is also a perfect opportunity for bands who have little or no coverage yet. Take the power away from the media and into your own hands by generating your own coverage.


There are infinite possibilities not listed here. You can hire someone to write your band name on their forehead and post it to Youtube if you so desire. These ideas should be enough to get you off the social networks and thinking in new ways.
