Facebook Ads For Music Artists | Pre-Release Music Marketing

Are Facebook ads for music artists? YES! In this video i’ll show you how you can use Facebook and Instagram ads to promote an upcoming single.

Facebook and Instagram ads are an incredibly powerful tool for music artists, musicians, and music producers. Many artists shy away from them because they cost money, and there is kind fo a steep learning curve. I’ve spent a few years and thousands of dollars testing every music marketing tactic I could find, and i’ve also gone through about a dozen music marketing and Facebook ads course I could find.

In this video I show you how to create an ad in Facebook ads, exactly who to target and why i’m targeting them, I show you the ads, and I show you the various optimizations I make along the way. Keep in mind this is for a pre-release promotion strategy, but I use these exact same tactics when I get to the actual campaign I use for release day and beyond.

This video is part of a music marketing series where I document the marketing process behind my upcoming single ‘You’, check out the rest of the videos here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZM8P5xQw3RY_Bkbhl7uOiRDLwVgTR5Lg

  3. Thanks Andrew that was very helpful! I was wondering, do you think it is a good time to run ads with all this covid situation?

    Also, what is the goal of the "negative" ad set that you are creating? I didnt really get that…
    Thanks for your videos!

  4. how about making a post on fb, clicking boost and setting the audience and settings there? Instead of having to deal with all this stuff…

  5. I see you do a lot of facebook ads for music, but do you use Instagram ads for your music too?

  6. Im here again! I tried out and its working! Awesome! My crowd is growing. Thanks a lot Andrew! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

  7. Hey Andrew, you have mentioned that your ad video is not overproduced, is that a marketing strategy in general or you do that because of the audience you are trying to target? Would you say is not recommended to use a youtube video of your song and use it for your ad campaign and instead create a simple video specifically for that campaign? Thanks man
