Making The Internet Work For You: How To Become An Overnight Sensation

The Internet is an incredible thing. Everyone uses it, and if push came to shove, it would be a struggle to survive without it. For many, going online involves contacting friends and checking what’s going on in the world. But the Internet is also a really effective resource for making a name for yourself. Are you a singer or do you play in a band? Are you a budding artist or an ambitious blogger? If so, take these tips on board to make the Internet work for you. You could be the next overnight sensation.



Making a name for yourself
Have you been rehearsing in your spare room or garage for the last few years? If so, you could be the best band in the world, but you’ll never crack the charts. If nobody knows who you are, you’re not going to sell records or gig tickets. The key to success in any career path is making a name for yourself. In the past, it was incredibly tough to get people to hear your music or read your articles. Today, thanks to the Internet, there are opportunities for everyone. Online platforms enable you to show off your talents and connect with millions of people. You can share music or set up your own blog in a matter of minutes. The online world is your oyster, so get out there and make the most of it.

Getting people talking and building a client or fan base
In order to establish a client or fan base, you need to attract attention and get people talking. If you post a video on YouTube, for example, you want to make sure people see it. You can do this by linking your clips to your website and setting up social media profiles. Ask people you know to share your page, and look into advertising to boost traffic. Once you’re up and running, build your presence. Interact with fans, and encourage them to spread the word. You can also use social media to get in touch with people or businesses that could propel you to the next level. Somebody who works on a radio station, for example, could see your track on Twitter and like what they hear. The next day, your song could be on national or local radio. If you’re a blogger, an online publisher may spot your work, and you could be featured in a magazine.

The Internet is a great way of generating interest in live events, such as gigs or gallery openings. You can invite people and build a buzz by sharing images and video clips. You can stream gigs or encourage people to share their photos with unique hashtags, for example. If you’ve got a gig coming up, don’t lose sight of the opportunity to sell your music. It’s satisfying to know that people are listening to your music online. But you need to make money too. Go online and use services like Nationwide Disc duplication to order bespoke CDs. You can sell these at the venue, as well as on your website. Make sure any merchandise has links to your social media accounts.




The Internet is a wonderful entity. If you’ve got ambitions to be the next overnight sensation, hopefully, these tips will help. Good luck!

Hair
Your hairstyle can dramatically impact your overall appearance - it can speak volumes about your personality, influences, and interests if you want it to. Now, many of us stick to very safe styles that blend into the crowd. This is why you see so many people with their natural hair shades, long locks and blunt cuts with centre partings. But why not switch things up a bit. You don’t necessarily have to shave the sides and dye your hair a wild colour. A few subtle changes can make all the difference! Consider a fringe, switching to a natural colour that doesn’t happen to b…

But have you put much thought into who you are going to travel with? Your travel companion really can make or break a trip.
