Top 27 Youtube Music Promotion Channels (And How To Get Featured On Them!)

Written by Jaron Lewis

When it comes to promoting your own work there are very few of us who do so with any fervour. Especially amongst the ranks of musicians. Many, many bands fade out of existence not because they are terrible – but because they aren't properly promoted.

The long and short of the matter is that to be successful in any business you need to advertise yourself...and if we creatives don't start doing so we will be overlooked and remain anonymous until we are dead and the vultures can lay claws into our work for free...

Online Advertising

On a cheerier note; there are a number of decent music promotion channels out there on Youtube that can get you noticed! Online advertising is not only the cheapest, but also gets you the most for your money.

Whether you are a business or a band the first step to getting noticed is to create a website and follow it up with social media links.

Build A Relationship With Promoters

Once you are a recognizable name on the internet then you need to start working on your relationships with the music promotion channels. These guys are pro music fans who are devoted to playing new tunes that need airtime, and often they will stick to a single genre or two. Research each Channel and see what their style is – don't blindly send off your tracks.

Choose your audience and start following them. Music Promotion Channel owners are far more likely to play the music of someone who has been following them for some time or who actively supports them in online forums. Show them some support and back it up with a little friendliness.
