Hi RealKev,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience. I had some interest of doing it too, but obviously with an outcome that you had I changed my mind now :D
Thanks.
Best Regards,
Slava B.

I actually did another promotion after this, (must enjoy throwing money away lol) where I narrowed the criteria and reached 1392 people however of those only 29 clicked on my advertised link to my Spotify page.

I don't know where I got the idea, but I always figure on a 1% response to advertising. You got 2%, so that's 100% more than I would have expected!

I too have recently jumped on the Facebook twitter etc bandwagon. It is so flipping time consuming and already I can feel myself being sucked into the little plastic screen and not getting as much musical work achieved. (Well, hardly anything for 3 weeks as I’ve been so thin on the ground - bouts of childhood illness, family stuff and husband being off work - so no recording either. Humpf.)

Well, you’ve got to start somewhere innit Kev. It’s a really good start. Just keep being creative! I found that Instagram was good to get connected with brand new folks interested in things that are of a similar ilk. Isn’t as powerful as Facebook, but has definitely helped a little bit with SoundCloud listens and stats.

I’m going to sit down next week and plan 2 months worth of posts and random ideas, so I can then sit back and almost forget about it. And then I can get back involved in making tunes and learning new stuff on the forum.
And then it’s the s*dding school summer holidays.... aaarrrggghhhhghhhhhh

On a side note, I signed up to bleep.me - a great site where all dif forms off social media posts all appear together in one place with a bio. Kind of like having a free website. Is really cool.

Hope you smashed it at Humber Dock festival kev :) post some vids and then we can ‘like’ them ! Cxx

Thanks Caz, it was a good gig :)
Yeah i've done Instagram ads as well now, they seem to get more likes and engagements. I've done more Facebook ads too usually two or three a month but i've figured out now how to hone in on my demographic to get some decent results. I'm going to check out the bleep site right now :)

I would say that every single penny you have invested in Facebook advertising so far has been worth it just to get this vital piece of info / knowledge!!!!!

Any likes/views are a bonus so far IMHO - getting this knowledge will improve your future campaigns...
