Use broadcast feature only to send a message to vital people in your contact lists. These people you chose to add to your broadcast list must be people who are interested in what you are doing. Sending promotional message to someone who is not in the same field is not effective. You should only send broadcast message to your contact twice a week if you have song release or upcoming show. If you are constantly sending out broadcasting messages to your contacts it could result a chance of you being blocked by the person.
Your purpose for sending out a broadcast message should be about getting feedback from your list. Be careful how you draft your message because some messages is a turn off. Avoid writing messages like ” Check out my new banger, my new hit tune etc” and focus on trying to write a message that will engaged your contacts to respond so you can get feedback on your song. For instance if you want a positive feedback.. write something like ” Hello friends and family, I’m sorry for disturbing you but I would like you to listen to my new song which I’m about to release in couple of days, Please all positive and negative feedback are welcome on how I can improve on it.” Such kind of message will prompt people to listen and respond. You can also use the broadcast as a reminder to remind your contacts about your upcoming shows.. Remember don’t send broadcast message every day…send out the message days before releasing the song and one day before releasing. We hope this help you.
