Electronic Dance Music is the fastest growing sub-culture on the planet. It has been around for a few years, but now it’s exploded into an instant worldwide phenomenon with millions of subscribers and thousands of artists all joining in. In fact, more people have joined the revolution than smokers and alcohol combined. So what are you going to be up to on this happy ride that is taking over your life? I’ll tell you three things:
One thing I love about social engagement on the internet is that it allows me to see what my friends are up to, and they can’t see what my friends are up to because they don’t do it. I can keep up to date on what my friends are doing, when they’re doing it, and what I find interesting or not so interesting. This is great for the Electronic Dance Music fan, because the Electronic Dance Music fan needs to stay up to date on new and exciting music in order to keep the hype going, and the electronic dance music fan wants to see new and exciting music as much as the fan that likes it.
Another thing I love about social engagement is that it allows me to make friends all over the world that I would never have been able to make friends in high school or college if I’d had to rely only on the electronic media. With the internet, I can actually meet people from other parts of the country and even the world and start becoming really good friends through the social engagement that we’re all using. If there wasn’t a social engagement, there wouldn’t be such a huge explosion of new and exciting electronic music out there for everyone to listen to.
The third reason why I love social engagement so much is that it makes me feel good about myself and gives me something to focus on. When I first started to really get involved with electronic music, I was just like every other guy. I was listening to random things on my iPod and really not caring about anything else, but when I started doing social things online it all changed. I was connecting with more people and building relationships and having fun with it all on a daily basis.
If you’re doing the same things that I was at the beginning, then you’re on the right track to being successful online. The reason why I say this is because the internet is constantly changing and growing. One day Facebook fans will be two hundred, the next day they could be a thousand. So you have to keep your ear to the ground, and always be on the lookout for any new updates on social engagement and how people are using the internet to market themselves. If you’re not doing this, you’ll soon see yourself being left behind because no one is paying attention to what you’re doing online.
When I first joined Instagram a few months ago, I didn’t really care about it, I just wanted to connect with some of my friends. As I began adding more pictures to my page, I started to notice a massive increase in my amount of followers. I didn’t really think anything of it at first, but within a couple of weeks I started getting a lot of friend requests and then eventually asking for twitter followers. When I started to look at the stats from my analytics I was blown away.
In just under 2 months my account has gone from having only a few hundred friends, to over seven thousand and four hundred friends. This obviously is a huge amount of social engagement and considering that I only started using the social networks about a month ago, it’s pretty impressive. Another thing that I noticed was that not only did I get a ton of new twitter followers, but I also got a ton of email contacts as well. Now having email is a whole ‘lotta’ lot different than having friends on Instagram, but I’m sure other producers are doing the same.
So what do I think now? I think I have found my home on Instagram, and I’m extremely happy. I can go there and talk about my new projects, shows, albums, music, and anything else I want to talk about. The other thing that I love about it, is being able to get instant updates on stuff. If I need to find out about upcoming shows in a city, or anything else that I need to stay up to date on, I just go to Instagram and I have all of the information that I need.
