The music industry can be very fickle at times. One star that is hot today may be a real flop a couple of months later. The best way to break into the music industry and stay is through building a fan base.
This starts with a blog or website of your own. Technology is everything today. A demo is good, but you have to get yourself out there. Let people on social media sites and YouTube know that you exist. From this point you create a mixtape or two. This will give people a chance to sample what you have to offer.The full explanation can be found at http://thenextweb.com/asia/2012/05/22/koreas-k-pop-music-industry-joins-facebook-and-google-to-extend-global-reach/ This is always important because it lets you know exactly where you stand with potential money paying fans.
After your internet presence has been established you can go and put the demo in the hands of a record company. It is nice to have an agent that can do this dirty work for you. It you don’t have the money for an agent you may have to do it all yourself. Either way it is still best to build your own spotlight through the use of technology. Establish a presence that will make the record labels seek you.
