Music Marketing on Facebook & Twitter, What & When to Post

Do you ever get stumped wondering what you should share with your fans, friends and followers online? Do you ever worry about bombarding your followers with too many updates?

In this three-and-a-half minute video I cover:
  • Advice on how often you should post to Facebook and Twitter
  • What to post when you think "I don't have anything to say" (which is a big mistake)
  • How to establish yourself as a valuable authority and resource on your genre


What do you think? How often to you post to social media? And what kinds of content do you share with your fans?
