Top 10 Music Marketing Strategies in 2024

  1. Short Music Videos for Social Media
  2. Leveraging “Drops” for FOMO
  3. Focus on Superfans and Community Building
  4. Creating Holistic Brand Experiences
  5. Collaborate with other Artists and Influencers
  6. Hosting your own Events
  7. Creating consistent Content Series that can be Branded
  8. Merch Collaboration with brands
  9. Streaming Platform Optimization
  10. Stay Authentic

If you’re looking to make an impact, here is what we would prioritize from this list:

Short Music Videos for Social Media

In the age of short attention spans and scrolling thumbs, bite-sized music videos are the perfect way to catch the eye of fans on social media. Platforms are prioritizing short, engaging content, making mini-music videos an essential tool for artists looking to connect with their audience. These short, sweet, and punchy videos are your golden ticket to capturing more eyes and ears on social media in 2024.

Leveraging “Drops” for FOMO

Artists and brands are increasingly teaming up for “drops” – limited edition product releases that create a sense of urgency and FOMO (fear of missing out) among consumers. Take, for example, the collaboration between McDonald’s and rapper Travis Scott. This unexpected partnership resulted in the “Travis Scott Meal” – a Quarter Pounder with cheese, bacon, and lettuce, along with chips, BBQ sauce, and a Sprite with extra ice. By capitalizing on Scott’s massive fanbase and previous successful drops with major brands, McDonald’s was able to generate buzz and drive sales.

Focus on Superfans and Community Building

As the passion economy continues to grow, superfans will become even more important in an artist’s career. Instead of seeing their fan base as a whole, artists and music industry professionals should prioritize building a community and cultivating relationships with superfans. By identifying and nurturing these dedicated supporters, artists can create a loyal fan base that will support them throughout their careers.

Creating Holistic Brand Experiences in Music Marketing

In 2024, creating a holistic and authentic brand experience for fans is more important than ever. From immersive live events to exclusive merchandise, brands and artists must provide fans with unique and memorable experiences that go beyond just the music. By offering fans a deeper connection to the brand, artists can foster loyalty and engagement that extends far beyond the music itself.

In conclusion, music marketing in 2024 requires a strategic approach that prioritizes connection, authenticity, and innovation. By leveraging strategies such as drops, short music videos, community building, and holistic brand experiences, brands, and artists can create meaningful connections with their audience and drive engagement. At Brandie Weaver Partnerships, we’re committed to helping our clients navigate the ever-changing landscape of music marketing and achieve their goals.

Brandie Weaver

Founder and Head Strategist

Once upon a time, I was a 25-year-old driven, hungry female sitting behind a desk in an alcohol distributor office. I answered a craigslist ad (Yes! This was a way of life for us entrepreneurs at the time) for someone who needed an event coordinator and a sponsorship salesperson.

I had been planning parties since I was 15 years old and I had a marketing degree so I convinced him I was the woman for the job.  This is how my “side hustle” began. I had never sold a sponsorship in my life, but I knew I worked at the liquor company so I had an edge over most people. 

I dove in! I mean I really dove in and taught myself everything I could about sponsorships. At that time there really wasn’t a ton of information out there. I researched packages for hours on hours trying to come up with the most creative packages I could. 

Little did I know that creating the packages was just the beginning of my long uphill battle. I spent ten years independently selling sponsorships at the local and national level for a professional boxing and MMA company. I did this while working full-time in the alcohol industry, getting an MBA, and partying like a rockstar! 

In 2017 I saw a Facebook Post looking for an intern to work at a music festival. My first love has always been music so I responded to that post and continued to follow up until I got the meeting. I obtained the opportunity to work on my first music festival in Key West selling sponsorships.  I was working full time selling liquor at a liquor wholesaler, selling pro boxing and MMA sponsorships, and now I was finally selling something I was truly passionate about.

I left the liquor company and started my own consulting company in 2018. Fast forward to today my team and I have sold over 4 million dollars in sponsorships for events and individuals. We have produced over 40 events for brands, companies, festivals, and musicians.  I have built my brand on doing honest deals and creating intimate experiences that BUILD RELATIONSHIPS that LAST!
