New! Showcase your creativity on Instagram Reels with MusicDiffusion

MusicDiffusion is excited to announce the launch of Instagram Reels, a new tool for creating and discovering short Instagram videos to capture the attention of your audience!

Instagram is already one of the essential platforms for independent artists, since the network has given them the opportunity to express themselves and connect with their fans for several years. Whether through its partnership with MusicDiffusion which allows fans to access your music from the app or through the possibility that it offers to add the lyrics of their favorite songs to their stories to send a message, Instagram is undoubtedly one of the spearheads of artists marketing strategy.

With the launch of Instagram Reels, the network gives you yet another good reason to use it to connect with your audience.

Instagram Reels is a new feature that allows users to edit 15-second video clips with background music. Once created, the Reel can be shared on the Explore tab to reach new fans and introduce music to all platform users. In addition to giving you a new way to encourage your fans to use your titles in their videos, this entertaining tool is guaranteed to have a great time.

 

 

FUNCTIONALITIES

When creating your first Reel, take a look at the options available to you to customize your videos however you want.

  • Audio content: Choose your music! If you’ve delivered to Facebook with MusicDiffusion, your releases should already be available for selection on Instagram.
  • Reading speed: Fast or slow? It’s up to you! This is a fantastic tool for highlighting the highlights of certain tracks or for creating a video that follows the beat of your song.
  • Augmented reality effects: In addition to stickers and GIFs, this tool gives you the option of incorporating augmented reality (AR) effects into your videos. Of course, you can always choose them from a constantly updated catalog of graphics.
  • Timer: Trigger the start of recording remotely and take the opportunity to imagine different content.
  • Multi-clip pane: Use this tool to start recording your sequence and then stop it to integrate it into your video, which should not exceed 15 seconds in total.
  • Ghost Tool: Perfect for customizing the timeline or getting smooth transitions, this option lets you see the last frame you recorded while you add a new section to your video.

HOW TO SHARE YOUR REELS

The Share on Reels option allows you to only share your Reels in the Explore tab of your Instagram. So instead of appearing in the news feed of your subscribers, your creation will be highlighted on this tab, allowing you to reach a wide audience. Of course, your Reels will still appear on your Instagram profile, but in a different space. If you want to share your creations both on your Reels and on your News Feed, that is also possible!

TRENDS

Hashtags have always been at the heart of Instagram. Using a hashtag to follow content related to certain topics or trends is one of the go-to methods for discovering new posts, and Reels allows artists to explore this functionality further. In addition to being able to contribute to trending topics, artists can now create their own to inspire users. Artists and fans alike can add trending tracks/audios and hashtags to their Reels to get the maximum audience.

WHAT TO SHARE

Like every time a new feature is available on a social network or on a platform, artists should start by playing around with it to discover it. Think about what your fans particularly like. Find out how you express yourself best. Ask yourself how Reels can help you strengthen your brand and digital strategy.

The most successful music videos are surprising, funny, and often just right. You will need to post content that will make your fans want to watch it multiple times, share it, and create their own music video. You are the one who decides what kind of content you want to post, but like any other network, its ultimately the most inspiring, relevant and user-friendly posts that work best.

SHOW YOUR CREATIONS

We don’t need to give you a lesson on this, but there are some tips that might help you create a relevant Reel. Here is the procedure to follow in our opinion:

1) PREPARE IT

Think about the message you want to share. Do you just want to ask your fans how their day is going, or would you like to tackle something deeper, more thoughtful, that has been going through your mind for some time? A bit of both? Either way, make sure you show yourself the best you can to your fans.

2) SKIN IT

You only have 15 seconds to get your idea across. If you want to build a Reel that incorporates different settings, locations, characters, or angles, take the time to prepare each sequence before. The advantage of this preparation is that it will allow you to use the beat that you want and coordinate your clip with it. And believe us, this organization will save you time.

3) FILM IT

Just like with videos or Insta Directs that you save on your smartphone, there are some tips that will give your Reel a special touch.

  • Light: Make sure you are not filming under a direct light source and try to leave it behind the lens.
  • Color / Tones: Use different lighting effects to set the mood of your clip.
  • Get the attention of your fans: It’s the very first seconds of your Reel that should hook your fans.
  • Use the tools at your disposal: Instagram Reels offers you a whole catalog of effects and tools with which to create your clip (see above); make sure you use it to entertain your audience.
  • Have fun: Remember that this feature is all about giving you a good time. If your fans see you having fun with your music, they’ll want to do the same.

4) PUBLISH IT

As we already mentioned, you will be able to publish your clip to your news feed or to your Reels tab (in which case it will be visible in the Discover area of other users). But, like everything in your career, it’s important to build a consistent, long-term strategy.

Instagram Reels is a new feature that lends itself perfectly to the creative expression game. And finally, isn’t this one of the main strengths of artists? This new tool will allow you to create new content to share with your fans to make you known, to communicate with them or to encourage them to integrate your tracks into their Reels. Above all, don’t forget to keep up to date with the latest trends or fashionable challenges on social media. Who knows, soon it might be your song that will make the buzz on Reels.

5 scams that unsigned artists must avoid

 

MusicDiffusion is here to distribute your songs on all platforms worldwide, as helping you promote your music, develop your career and hopefully become a music star!

Unfortunately there are bad people out there who see ambitious unsigned artists like you as something to be exploited and ripped off. These people are evil and you shouldn’t ever have anything to do with them. So here are a few tips on what to look out for before crying hard.

 

1. Pay up front to be represented

Managers and agents are paid by commission, in simple words, they only get paid if the artist they represent gets paid. So if someone says they want to represent you as your agent or manager, but that they first need to be paid in advance of doing anything, they are clearly not a manager or agent, but certainly a scam.

 

2. Pay to get connected with some persons in the industry

There are people out there who claim to be artistic agents or to know some, and dare to request you to pay to get you connected or even get a deal. These people are what are known as LIARS. Artistic agents are the people in labels who discover and sign new artists, working with them to help create and develop their career. They do not get paid by unsigned artists. Never. Anyone who suggests otherwise is simply not a profesionnal. Real artistic agents find exciting new artists and in fact, it would make more sense that they help their artist financialy for prove their trust in their art than request money instead!

 

3. Buying tickets for a mystery unsigned artist promotion night

This is a scam that appears from time to time – unsigned artists are approached by a supposed promoter who has supposedly selected them to appear in a night of unsigned artists. What the artist has to do is buy tickets to guarantee his/her appearance, and he/she will never see the money again or hear any more about this supposed great gig. There are lots of nights out there for unsigned artists and you should absolutely be trying to appear on it, but make sure the gig is legit before getting involved.

 

4. Charges for playing live in concert

Gigging is an essential activity for almost all artists. It’s very important to not get ripped off in the process. Some venues may determine their fee based on how many fans you bring along, and there may be a minimum guarantee of tickets you have to sell. If that’s the case, once you pass that minimum you must have the ability to actually earn a share of the money from the sales you bring in. And that break-even point has to be completely clear. Think about what is realistic for you and what make you comfortable with.

 

5. If it sounds too good to be true…

Then it probably is. Building a successful music career is a long hard slog. The rewards can be varied and immense, but they have never come to anyone without lots and lots of hard work. So if someone is offering something that seems a little too easy, just too good to be true, be on your guard. And if they’re asking for your money up front, without the guarantee of anything, be even more careful. Being a successful musician is hard enough as it is, don’t make things harder for yourself by falling victim to a scam from a bad person.
