Now you don’t need to have cassettes or records to listen to music you don’t even need huge storage spaces to store them all you need is an internet connection and a subscription to any music streaming platform.
So, what is a music streaming platform you may ask? Well, it’s basically a digital platform that has a huge collection of music uploaded on it and people are able to directly listen to them directly from the platform by using an app or their designated portal.

As a co-editor for pianostreet, with more than 200.000 members, which includes production of blog and news postings, we do not review in a traditional sense. If an event, recording, publication or project is showing proof of quality and concern for our members/readers, we will cover it. In that sense, we will always function from an independent base, letting projects qualify themselves so to speak.
# Make use of streaming distribution services
Now you are thinking aren’t streaming music services is where people go to listen to their favorite music. Like in Spotify, apple music. That’s true but the distribution service is a little different.
They help you to stream your music through them and get royalty in return. This is a great way not only to earn but also promote yourself through popular music streaming services.
# Utilize the power of social media
Social media is very famous among businesses. Not it’s a great place to promote your platform but also a meeting place to look up and learn from your competitor.
Also utilizing the social media perks such as live video streaming is a great way to interact with listeners and listen to their feedback and improve upon that. You can also use this chance to show your sincerity to your existing listener and promote yourself to new potential listeners.
# Selling your skill to people that need it
Well, we all heard of online freelancing or donation or gigs base sites like Upwork, Freelancer, Fiverr, Patreon, By Me A Coffee, Streaming Plug, and many more. Where people advertise their skills to get hired and get paid for jobs or gigs that require their skills. Besides this, some of these sites offer your fans to invest in you in the form of donations so that you can keep creating content that they love,
By now I think you got the gist of why am I telling you about them? But to be on the same page let me explain. You don’t have to be a professional singer to earn. If your skills are good enough you can just utilize your skills through this site and you can not earn from it but also can let people know of your presence.
# Gain sponsorship as an influencer
If you are hard-working and have a decent amount of fan base then believe me you don’t have to look for ways of making money they would come to you.
Yeah, I know it may sound incredible but it’s true. Once you have a certain amount of followers to whom your words hold weight certain businesses will offer your sponsorship offers to promote their brands to your fans. And believe me when I say this that when you look up the offered amount you are in for a surprise.
# Power of live streaming
Another great way to promote earn is by utilizing the power of live streaming. You can open up a special platform that will host and stream your concerts on which many fans are unable to attend for various reasons. Like tickets sold out or busy at work or in another state. Opening up an online streaming platform and selling tickets to attend them is the best way for fans such as this to watch your performance.
You shouldn’t just rely on music and concert streaming their’s also podcast streaming services. You should utilize them as well. As you know that podcast listeners are increasing day by day so it’s one of the best places to promote and interact with your fan base. Besides, you can even earn through podcasts as well
