Marching to your own beat: Why Branding is Important for Musicians

Music is a form of self-expression. A person’s deepest feelings, thoughts, and expressions can all be expressed through the power of music, unique feelings that only the singer can fully understand. It helps you show your own unique self to others.

In the same way, a brand is an expression of who a person is at their core. Just like how businesses can use a brand to stand out from the rest of their competitors, a musician can use their own personal brand to stand out from all the other musicians.

But why else should a musician even go through the hassle of creating a personal brand? Read on and find out!

  • A brand helps you stand out

What kind of music do you specialize in? As an example, let’s go with rock music. So why should your audience choose to buy your album over, say, Nickelback? If you’re providing the exact same experience as all the popular brands, then what separates you from them, exactly? To your audience’s eyes, you two might as well be similar, so why not go for the safer, more popular option?

Well, that’s where a brand comes in. Your brand will help differentiate you from the rest of your competition, by making your customer’s experiences with you different from your customer’s experiences with other musicians, which means that you’ll be able to stand out from everybody else!

  • A brand gives you a goal to reach for

It’s easy just to say “I want to succeed”. But what exactly does success mean? Is it the amount of followers you have on social media? The amount of money you earn? The amount of people attending your concerts? Whatever you choose your goal to be, your brand will help you keep track of it, and allow you to focus your efforts into your goal specifically.

  • A brand gives your audience something to remember

It’s not good enough to be “good” anymore. Now, more than anything, the real challenge is being memorable. After all, if your audience remembers they had a good time but doesn’t remember where, then how will they find their way back to you? That’s why having a good brand is important, because it gives your audience something to remember, which can help them find you again, which means you’ll begin to get repeat business. In short, a brand promotes repeatability, which in turn makes your performance more memorable to your audience!
