Techniques

  • For Pandora, only vote songs down. Otherwise, you’ll hear the exact same song again and again.
  • Search for stations on the Internet Radio stream. Discover something unexpected.
  • Exchange features with other up-and-coming artists, then cross-promote for each other

Habits

  • Search randomly. Don’t “plan” your music.
  • Give away your music to build a fan base. The money will come.
