Singing Career – How to have a Successful Singing Career: Having a successful singing career is not an easy thing to achieve; there can be many obstacles that stand in your way. The most essential thing to any successful career is having good material, the personality to engage on stage, a fan base and a shed load of energy to create opportunities. So with that in mind the need to do and improve the following will assist you on your journey to success.
Uploaded your Material on Social Media
Starting with the basics, you're going to need a platform for fans to be able to find you on in order to have a successful singing career. So make sure you've uploaded your singing material on the likes of YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook, etc. These are the places fans will come to find you. Of course ensure the material is the best it can be and is professionally recorded. If you can get your own website also that is very beneficial as you can have all your social media pages directing to your website, which is one main platform for fans to find all the information they need about you.
Appreciate your Fans
Make sure your fans know you appreciate them! After all they are a large part of your singing career in the music industry. You can do this simply by responding back positively to comments on your social media sites, accepting friend requests on Facebook or following them back on Twitter. At events spend time talking and engaging with them, after all they have just spent time to watch and listen to you.
Learn to Perform
It's vital that you can sing well to have a successful singing career, but it won't be enough by itself. You need to be able to perform, whilst you sing. Being able to perform will be one of the main factors that can take you from an unsigned artist to a recording artist. Most important is conveying personality in your performance is essential for a successful singing career. Acts like Robbie Williams would be the first to admit that they aren’t the best singers but what he lacks in the strength of his vocals he more than makes up for in personality and charisma on and off stage.
To Perform Effectively, there are a Few Tricks to Remember:
Accept Rejection and Move On
You're not always going to have an easy job trying to have a successful singing career; you're likely to face rejection on a number of occasions. It's in these moments that you'll have to accept you're not for them and move on. Don't give up, keep going. Remember, the Beatles were turned down plenty of times before someone gave them a break. A good tip for acts is to ask for feedback and evaluate what feedback you get; take it on board if you agree with it.
Learn How to Network
Without the ability to network, you won't have the chance to build contacts during your singing career. Networking is an important aspect for singers to work on, as it can be invaluable. With events being held specifically for networking, the concept has never been so important.
