I mean I have been making music for like 4 damn years now. Have I accumulated any fans yet? Anyone got my music on their ipods or is facebook stalking me? Just curious.

Sincerely,
Your underworked and underpaid producer.

From what I can tell, all you have aside from Newgrounds is a non-functional website. You need to get yourself out there if you want to get noticed. Get a Soundcloud, Youtube, all of that shit, and then advertist yourself a LOT. That's how I've gotten 212 subs on youtube, 49 SC followers and 17 FB likes.

Put yourself out there, or else you can't expect any fans.


Can you feel it mister Krabs?

To add to what SpaceWhale said... or emphasize... Just making music is not enough, you will never (and I mean never) build up a fan base if all you do is create music and expect people to just miraculously find you.

Even if you make really damn good music, that alone is not enough to build your fan base... it helps, but it won't do all the work for you.

You have to push yourself into other peoples view... make use of all the mediums you can handle (As mentioned above)... The more places people can find you, the more opportunities you have to gain fans. And be active in ALL of those communities, just having an account there with some music on it is not enough.

I just took a quick glance at your profile... And I suspect you are expecting too much from the listeners, as you have over 100 submissions... yet only 9 fans. This alone tells me you are not trying at all to be noticed here on newgrounds. Be active, make friends, use the audio ad thread, the review request club, the WIP thread, participate in contests/challenges, ask questions, answer questions...

You have to go get your fans, they won't come to you.

Is there any way to check users that have us on their favorite artist list now?
