10 Facebook Marketing Tips From 10 Musicians

We recently spoke at the SongRise Music Conference in Peace River, Alberta. It’s an annual conference/workshop for people in the music industry.

I invited attendees to share the following: “What is the one tip you want to share with other artists that you learned at the SongRise Conference this weekend?”

The responses were amazing:

Karen Seaton

“This conference has taught me that no matter where you think you might be as a songwriter or musician, your talent is endless, as are the possibilities! My word of advise to all current or future delegates is to leave your fears behind in that crazy place we call the comfort zone. Take the leap and do what you love!!! šŸ˜‰ Music is love! …and hugs, can’t be without hugs!”

Michael Cassidy Jr.

“The Songrise conference was amazing and all the info provided by BlitzMetrics was very beneficial. If there’s one tip I could offer another artist about the conference it would be this:
Learn a butt-load of valuable information while having some of the most fun you’ll have all year.”

Sarah Richards

“The one tip that I would give to other artists about songrise is that I thought it was going to be hard to write with a couple strangers, but you never know who you’ll meet so give it a try and you’ll make lifelong friends and connections! So amazing!”

Richard Woodman

“I learned the importance of branding and letting that be a reflection of who you are”

Luke Lounsbury

“This year at Songrise, I was exposed to the business side of the music industry. I also gained knowledge pertaining to grants and other opportunities you wouldn’t find anywhere else. A big thanks to everyone involved!”

Amy Metcalfe

“My tip to future songrise attendees would be to expect the unexpected. This conference has the perfect blend of encouraged creativity and practical tools necessary for today’s musicians. Top notch panel and sessions with small town warmth and personal connections.”

Vernon John Ledger

“One thing I learned from songrise is the importance of knowing who you are and what you have to offer, because when you know that, you know who your playing to”

Shae Long

“The one thing I learned this weekend that I would like to share with other artists is that it doesn’t matter how old you are, what your talent is or how big your fan page is. If you have something to offer, that is something special and shouldn’t be taken for granted. Don’t underestimate what you can achieve when paired up with other great artists.

Lorissa Scriven

“Hey Alex big thanks to you a

ndĀ DennisĀ for coming up to Peace River to share your knowledge with us. You are very inspiring people, who empower with knowledge! I love that! So… the homework. I would say going toĀ #SongriseĀ brings a sense of belonging unlike anything I have ever experienced.

It really taught me the importance of networking. Investing energy in relationships with people is honestly the best thing you can do in life and in the business of music.

The unity that comes from supporting one another is truly magical. A few things I would tell anyone who goes to the conference would be to make sure you leave your ego and inhibitions at home, let yourself be open, free yourself from fear, then.. see how you shine from within and outward like a giant light bulb!

Recognize and support all your fellow light bulbs! Everyone is so unique and radiant. Be inspired, write things down and maybe prepare yourself for the lack of sleep you will endure and don’t forget the “Experience hangover” that will happen for the weeks to follow.

Dana Blayone

“Being one of the organizer’s ofĀ Songrise Music Conference & Showcase Ā my mind was blown with all the amazing artists and mentors that surround me during those two days. The business sessions grounded everyone to start looking at their music as a business, and the co-writing sessions made everyone glow with creativity and connectivity with those around them.

The one tip I want to share which I feel is the most important outcome fromĀ #songriseĀ is the networking and relationships that happens organically. If you rise together as a musical family supporting and promoting one another while on your own journey, then you will discover success that lasts longer and is more sustainable. With a musical family you then will truly haveĀ No Limitz!.”

Music is all about expressing yourself, and the responses we received center around the idea of what makes you special. Share your passions, then reach out and network with others- remember to always have fun.

This isn’t limited to just music but is crucial for any brand’s story. When your mission statement resonatesĀ with what drives your passions,Ā your audience takes notice and reacts.

We cover all of thisĀ in our Songrise guides that you can download here.

If you’re a musician or work in the music industry, you should drop in at Congress next year!

Working with Dennis has been a delightful experience. After meeting him in 2015 I got to collaborate with him on countless occasions. His understanding for state-of-the-art marketing, his implementation, and his leadership put him into the top 0.01% of marketers and mentors.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dennis for my podcast in 2021 and since then we have maintained a friendship that grows with each interaction. I have seen Dennis' devotion to his friends and clients firsthand, and our conversations often result in us talking about how we can provide more value to the people around us. He is someone whom I can ask questions on a technical level, and look to on a personal level. If you have any hesitancy about hiring him, get over yourself and do it!

Geez, where do I start recommending Dennis? First, he is an absolutely brilliant marketer who understands where marketing is today and where it's going tomorrow. He also has an incredible passion for the International Worker community. The lessons he has taught me from his almost 20 years of experience hiring International Workers have been immense. Most importantly though. Dennis Yu is someone who wants the absolute best for you and is willing to tell you the truth. Dennis sat with me at a point in my business where I was floundering but did not want to admit it. He asked some very straight forward questions to get me to admit my issues, highlighted the issues, and then helped me create a roadmap to success.
