A constant source of social media frustration for upcoming music producers is YouTube. Why? Because there's a lot involved in gaining critical mass on YouTube. I'd argue that it takes a lot more work and consistency than Instagram or Tik Tok.
The following tips will give you some ways to grow your YouTube channel in 2021 and beyond:
1. Understand the type of channel you are building
Are you building a music-only channel where you only upload music you've produced? Or are you building a channel where you have music and other types of content? These are important questions to consider as you roll out your YouTube presence.
2. Plan your content release schedule
How often are you going to be releasing music? You should consider releasing at least monthly. Will you be putting out mixes for people to enjoy? Maybe you can film a DJ set in a cool location. Behind the scenes footage, vlogs, get creative! Document what you're up to and be consistent about it.
As a YouTuber, background music can be a tricky area for you to navigate because of royalty / copyright issues. This is because if you put music in your video that isn't cleared, your entire video can be demonetized!
So how do you avoid painful copyright strikes and pick the right music to use? By using so-called free no copyright music instead. The popular term refers to certain YouTube channels and Record Labels who have decided to give you the ability to use their music royalty-free of charge in exchange for receiving credit in your video's description.
