Looking for a Co-Sign
Gaining influence in any industry is about who you know and how you can use those connections to further your influence in that industry. Think about it; most of these companies and influencers have used features from others to expand their following. If you need an example, go to one of your favorite YouTubers accounts, and you will usually see them work with other YouTubers. That, or you’ll see them name dropping an endorsement that assists them in creating their content. It’s easy to find, and very beneficial to have this help in your industry. In other words, networking doesn’t have to be hard work, so don’t make it.
️ 🗣️ Strive for that Co-Sign
With the new age of social media, it’s relatively easy to find influencers that can assist you in gaining a larger following. I mean let’s be honest, most of the influencers that you look up to are just a click away from your account. The biggest thing that you have to be aware of is the underlined stigma of some of these social media influencers. Things like not being helpful or engaging with their fans. Yes, they do get a lot of messages a day trying to do the same things as you. However, as the great Wayne Gretzky once said, “you miss 100% of the shots, you don’t take.” So, shoot your shot. Letting these opportunities pass you by will ultimately lead to other people jumping on the opportunity that you passed on.
Go out and look for someone who fit the niche that you’re in and see if they will co-sign on your product. It may seem like a long shot, but to be honest, they have a lot to gain as well. Think about it, when their time is up, and their buzz is going down wouldn’t it be beneficial to be on to the next wave so that they can remain relevant? Many artists have used this scheme over the years. So, again, shoot your shot and give them a reason to see you as the next hot trend that they want to be a part of.
🙌 Co-Sign Success
Now, if you’re still on the fence, or don’t understand how co-signing can help you, then how about we go over some other artist who made their name off of being co-signed. Rich the kid, Sean Kingston, and Lil Uzi Vert were all Co-signers for Famous Dex. If you want to look further back, how about Lil Wayne being a Co-sign to Drake and Nicki.
One of the best things about a co-sign is that it doesn’t have to be one artist to another. Think about how many social media influencers have used tracks from musicians in their content. These plugs aren’t random; in fact, they are the direct work of the musician hitting the influence up. They’ll let them know “hey, I like your content and would like you to use one of my songs in your next video.” Don’t be afraid to reach out to other artists, social media influencers, or company pages, in search of the right co-sign for you.
Which leads us to this. If you go out and try to find an influencer to shout out your page or post your music and nothing seems to be working out for you, then go out and give Tophotmuzik at try. They’ve been co-signing artist for years now, and they have a long resume of artist that they have brought much attention to. From their Instagram account, they’ll give you a shout out, post your music, and bring a ton of attention to your page. When you look at all of the opportunities that are in front of you, being able to get your name recognition from a top account like Tophotmuzik can go a long way to furthering your notoriety. In the end, isn’t that what we’re all after?
