I’ve been (seriously) making music for about 3 years now. Along the way, I’ve uploaded tracks to BandCamp, Spotify, iTunes and Soundlcoud. I’ve made countless Youtube videos, tweeted about my music and tried to promote myself via Instagram and Facebook.
I haven’t made much in terms of money, yet. Some sales here and there, some Stream revenue now and then, but nothing major, or at least not profitable.
What I do have however are Statistics. Loads of them. Number of likes, shares, downloads, comments, listen or watch time average, subscribers, followers, re-tweets and everything else in between.
I haven’t made a full-proof, scientific analysis of all these numbers, but, intuitively, out of the 30 some tracks I’ve put out there, one, in particular, seems to stand out.
“Egyptian Wedding” is an Electronic Rock track, with a Middle Eastern inspired drum beat. It’s instrumental, but has enough melodic elements to catch the attention of listeners. At least, according to my stats.
I hope to bring more attention to it, by writing this post, maybe help it makes it’s way into your ipod or iphone, who knows. In any case, if you like it, you might also appreciate the “Best Of” album I put out, featuring this track and others, that all, have shown signs of movement, by topping my own personal statistics charts.
