QUICK TIPS: Using Technology to Share Your Music More Easily

The first step to becoming a household name in music is to get other people to listen to your work. Though this task may seem basic, it is important to pay attention to the small details to ensure that your songs are heard. When you are thinking of sharing your music via mp3 file or CD, follow the helpful suggestions below:

1) Label your track: Labeling your track with the song title and artist is a simple but significant step to ensure that you leave a memorable impression on listeners. Proper labels allow your song to easily be located in an audio library. A title such as "Demo 1" might work well for your own personal reference, but replacing such notes with appropriate titles means that your listeners will actually be able to find your song in their library after they decide they want to hear it again.

2) Double-check your work: When burning tracks to a CD or uploading an mp3 file online, be sure to test them to make sure they play properly. Often simple computer defaults may hinder a recording, so a quick check can help you avoid sending a blank disk to someone who might otherwise have been able to further your music career.

3) Take advantage of available software: Many music players offer equalizing options that can help clean up tracks. Presets such as “Rock,” “Pop,” and “Acoustic,” and options such as "Bass Reduction” can help you improve your tracks’ production quality and attract additional listeners.

These three, easy tips can set you apart from other artists by demonstrating your attention to detail. Have other tips of your own? Share them in the comments section for other readers to see.
