If you begin to get a fanbase, what will inevitably happen, is fans will share your songs as YouTube videos. If you get an even bigger fanbase, you will want to become one of YouTube’s content partners and make money from your popularity. While it is common knowledge you should post all of your songs to YouTube with at least a single frame video, what is not common knowledge is that you should also give your fans a better experience than that if you want to get them to watch your YouTube videos instead of the other one’s out there. One way to do that is by making a lyric video, since most fans wont put this amount of effort in. You can also add together quick live footage or behind-the-scenes pictures that fans wont have access to. All of this can make it so that your YouTube’s are what the fans go to.
