While Major Music Labels pay for their Marketing in Social Media; including Likes, Plays, Follows & Statistics, the truth is that they have no idea what their real numbers & who their real Fans are without interaction & relationship building in Social Media too market & sell his or her brand or product. You have too be candid & open. Most of all free from your Labels Social Media limitations.
Also, their Fans do not even know who they are. So they are good looking & have a few good songs w/ a bunch of teeny boppers &/or dope slinging Fans that cannot even afford their Music. Truth be told. Majority of my Fan Base are Males. Predominately 72.5%. They know me on an intellect they know of no other Composer in #World History & I am pleased too know my Fans are prominent, powerful, influential, dignified, respected, law abiding model citizens & economical contributors.
There's a lot more of me & Independents like myself that keep the Manufacturing Industry afloat & in Business. That's the way it is. My numbers are real, I don't pay for Services & they are all around the World. New & returning Fans everyday, from all over the Planet & I have screenshots of all my Stats & Record Statistics. On this .com & Facebook of all the Social Network Sites I utilize for my Music Career. Everything is free source Management & open to the General Public.
Parents; a bit of advice for you, every Home should own a Guitar or Musical Instrument. Guitars teach self discipline, creativity, confidence, imagination, hand eye coordination, builds self esteem & character, etc. If you buy a Guitar, plant a Tree in the lawn. You'll feel better about it. American Lutherie Guitar Makers & Manufacturers take great pride into building the finest Instruments in the World. If you can, Shop Local but if you cannot, by all means Shop around Online for the Best Deals.
Young Folks, you don't have too get the most expensive Model too be great. Great Artists can take a less expensive Guitar & make it great. I promise. I'm in the Top Percentile around the World of all Genres among 4 Million Industry Professionals w/ a Mid-Ranged Instrument & hailing at #1 in Elvis' Birth City & Birth State of America's Music.
Thanks for reading my Fans,
Troy David 'Maestro' Beadles
