After a few months without Facebook and some new releases, the result is disastrous when it comes to marketing my music. I usually sold a few hundred copies at Bandcamp in the first few days after new music was released. There is absolutely no comparison to that now, I am far from it, to put it mildly.
I had the most visitors to my website through Facebook, and most of the buyers of my music came through Facebook. Twitter absolutely cannot close this gap. Where Facebook was responsible for 80% influx, Twitter is only 10%. Neither my own website nor any social network can compensate for this.
These are facts and they bother me massively. I hate Facebook, think it’s wrong, harmful, and also criminal. My dilemma is quite big, accordingly.
I currently have to put up with the question of whether I can afford the absence of Facebook as someone who wants to make money with music (not necessarily, but want to). I am very busy in the studio and have lots of releases planned. I have never been more creative than now, and it hurts me that things are going down on the business side of things… just because of the fact that I left Facebook.
It would be very nice if you would support me if you like what I do. You can either buy my music on Bandcamp, stream it on Spotify or Apple Music or donate something. I don’t want gifts, you know that I always give more than I ask back. 😉
