How to use hashtags to push your music on Twitter

Get more retweets, likes and engagement!

Alright, you’ve just released a new track and want to share it on social media. Where do you start? Read this blog, use the hashtags and see what happens!

 

#TipOne

Firstly, there are accounts run by real people who will retweet your posts throughout the week. Try these:

#IndieMusicBlast #RockIndiePunk #MuseBoost #IndieMusicPlay

But what else can you do?

#TipTwo

Secondly, you can add certain hashtags to your tweets during the week. We’ve structured them by day for you:

Monday

8-9 PM CET add #MusicHourUK to your tweets to share your music. @MusicHourUK will share & RT.

#NewMusicMonday #MusicMonday

Tuesday

9-10 PM CET add #MusicHourUK. Run by @MusicHourUK

#MusicTuesday #NewMusicTuesday #TuesdayMotivation

Wednesday

10-11 PM CET add #UnsignedHour to your tweets. Run by @UnsignedHour

#MusicWednesday #NewMusicWednesday #WednesdayWisdom #WednesdayMotivation

Thursday

9-10 PM CET add #MusicHourUK

Friday

9-10 PM CET add #UnsignedHour to your tweets. Tweets by @StephenLambert0 & @AnneJ26

10-11 PM CET add #diymusicchat to your tweets. Run by @mojosarmy

Use #FridayPromo throughout the day for a retweet by @fridaypromo1.

 

Buy ForTheLoveOfBands a coffee while we listen to your music.

#TipThree

Add any of these hashtags

#NewMusic #NewMusicAlert #SongOfTheDay #NP #NowPlaying #RT #Retweet #ListenToThis #NewSong #IndieMusic #indieartist #Unsigned #UnsignedArtist #IndependentMusic #IndependentArtist

Also, add your genre, such as #AlternativeRock #SingerSongwriter #IndieRock and so on.

#TipFour

Remember to add the platform, such as #Soundcloud #Reverbnation #Bandcamp #Spotify or #YouTube.

Finally, when using hashtags, it’s better to use #NewMusic instead of #newmusic. It works just as well, but simply looks a lot better ? Have suggestions for this blog? Comment below or tag us on Twitter. Happy tweeting!

#TipFive

Don’t expect people to share your tweets if you’ve never retweeted, liked or commented and engaged on others. The independent music community is about sharing and caring and if you want to be taken seriously as an artist, you have to show you care about fellow musicians and industry professionals as well.
