PSA: How to Help Promote Troye’s Music When it Comes Out (Soon)
These are just some things I thought of, if anyone has any suggestions, corrections, or clarifications feel free to add on.
1.) Buy it on iTunes - This one kind of goes without saying, nothing catches people’s attention like sales. So buy it and help get it to the top of the iTunes charts (and/or the Billboard ones). If for some reason you can’t, don’t worry, there are plenty of other things you can do to help.
3.) Watch it on Youtube- Once a official music video is released, go watch it (again and again and again). Youtube views are tracked by Nielsen and considered in Billboardchart positions (x). Also, enough views would hopefully help the video get featured on the Popular Right Nowyoutubesection which always garners a lot more views.
4.) Tweet about it- Billboard has something called the Trending 140 and Realtime Charts, (if you use twitter you’ve seen it, it’s always promoted onto your timeline), which is based completely off of twitter. When a single is released be sure to tweet about it like crazy, which I’m pretty sure we would do anyway. Also, trending certain hashtags never hurt. (All lot of this goes for other social medias too, just spread the word–offline and online.)
5.) Shazam it- I’m not that familiar with Shazam, but they do have their own charts (i.e. which songs were shazamed the most often). I’m pretty sure that in Australia they have a radio show, Shazam Top 20, which is a countdown completely based off of what was shazamed most often.
And on that note…
6.) Request it on radio- Ah, good ‘ol radio play. It’s undeniably the best and most effective way to get an artist’s name and song out there. If Capitol is doing their job, they should have sent out Troye’s future single out to radio, which means all you have to do is go to your local station’s website and request it. If they haven’t sent it out, it’s not a big deal, there should be a section for you to custom request it. If a station gets enough requests, they might add it to their spin cycles/playlists.
Troye has put his heart and soul into this music, let’s help make sure all that hard work wasn’t in vain.
(And so, my fellow fans: Ask not what Troye can do for you, but what you can do for Troye.)
❝I don’t know who I am. I look at myself in the mirror and I see Stephen Herondale, but I act like a Lightwood and talk like my father—like Valentine. So I see who I am in your eyes, and I try to be that person, because you have faith in that person and I think faith might be enough to make me what you want.❞
