How To Upload Your Music To Facebook And Sell It

Hi guys. I’ve just created a new video on how to upload your music to Facebook and sell it. I thought showing you how to do this would be easier then just writing about it. If you prefer reading however, I’ve included a transcript of the video below as well. Enjoy.

(The video can be seen here if you’re reading this post via a feed).

This is the first of many videos I will be doing. Make sure you subscribe to Youtube.com/iMusicAdvice to be kept up-to-date with any new guides. Feel free to ‘like’ the videos as well. πŸ™‚

Here’s the transcript of the video:

How To Upload Your Music To Facebook Transcript

Ok, so here’s a transcript of that video for those that prefer to read:

Hi guys, my name’s Shaun from IndependentMusicAdvice.com, and today we are going to be looking at how to upload your music to Facebook. Before we start, there are a couple of things we need to do. First of all, you need to make sure you have a Facebook page page. If you have not got one of these already, you can check out www.Google.com and search for ‘Create a Facebook fan page’. The first result will allow you to do just that.

Second, you need to make sure you have a SoundCloud account. If you have not got a SoundCloud account, you can go to SoundCloud.com, create an account for free, and upload your music from there.

Next you need to go to BandPage.com as you can see I’ve done here. We need to click on this big blue button in the middle, ‘Create My BandPage’, and a new window should pop up asking us if we want to connect our Facebook and our BandPage. We click ‘Allow’ because we want that to happen. It’ll take a second to load.

If you’re already logged into Facebook, this should happen straight way and automatically. If you’re not logged in, they may ask you to log in. Just click ‘allow’, log in and give your details. Next, you should be taken to this screen right here.

As you can see, our Facebook page and our BandPage are now connected. Next, we have to click ‘Add Track’. We choose ‘SoundCloud’ from the drop down menu because we want to take the tracks from SoundCloud.

As you can see here, BandPage has uploaded both of our tracks as I’ve got two tracks on SoundCloud. What we need to do is hover over track 1 (Or whatever track you want). On the right hand side here, it says ‘Add To BandPage’. We click that.

From here you can change the name of your track; I’m just keeping it Track 1.

If you have a link for people to buy your music, say for example on iTunes, you can add the link here. Let’s just say my link is www.Buy.com, but you can add whatever link you need.

If you want people to download your music (Be able to download it), you can click ‘download’, but I’m not going to do that. Next we click ‘save to BandPage’, as you can see it’s saving here.

Next, for example, I’m going to upload my second track. So let’s just do the same thing again: Add to BandPage, people to buy it(?), no, no link, save to BandPage. And that should be done.

Now we have two tracks on my BandPage. You can also change your appearance, for example if you want to upload an image you can do so here: Upload New. You can change the colours, say for example you want red or whatever colour. I’ll just keep it white.

You can also see what other tools BandPage has.

When you’re finished, click back to Content. Come on the left hand side, and as you can see, it says β€œThis is not your real Facebook Fan Page, click here to see it”. So I’ve click and it’s opened up. And now you can see my Facebook Fan Page.

As you can see, it has my first track, and it has my second track. People can play there tracks right here. You can buy it if you have the link. And yer, that’s it.

So that’s how to upload your music to Facebook. If you enjoyed this video, please subscribe to the channel: Youtube.com/iMusicAdvice, and check out the website www.IndependentMusicAdvice.com. Thank you.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the video.
    I prefer video. Specially like this one: to the point, no fluff!!

    Thanks again

    Pedro Piedade

  2. Thanks for the feedback Pedro, much appreciated!

    I think I’m going to be doing a mix of written posts and video in future, depending on what I feel will suit the topic best.

    I’m glad you said that about no fluff, that was exactly my aim. Watching videos where people talk for ages instead of getting to the point seems super boring for me, and makes me want to switch off.

    Glad you enjoyed the video though, the next one I’m planning for you is definitely not to be missed πŸ˜‰

    Hi bro, Thanks a lot for these Wonderful tips you’ve shared with us!
    I like the fact that err thing was just “Straight 2D Point” & I’ve gained some really good knowledge (here) from you, especially for the fact that I’ll be making my first Music Upload today…
    Buh… I think It’d be better if you just continue like this (the Video & Transcript Method). So, that’s it for now bro; buh… Once again, I Wanna say; Thank you very much.
    Peace!!!

  4. No problem, I hope the video upload went well. πŸ™‚

  5. It is nice to see a music tutorial. Many music blogs don’t teach people how to use social media music tools and widgets.

    Many people think that young people have all the time in the world to be able to set up their websites and social media sites. Not everyone is completely internet proficient, but even if they are, new platforms and interfaces take time to learn.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Jordannah, I couldn’t agree more! There are a lot of platforms that you could potentially learn, but in all honesty it’s often not worth it. Focus on one or two, and forget about the rest. There are guides for using Facebook and Twitter effectively on this site, so maybe just go with those and forget the rest? Then your time could be focused on putting your efforts where they are really needed: The making and promoting of your music. Thanks for the comment.

  7. Nice info. I think it’s so important to note how important it is to get likes and social media followers generally once you post music or put up a page. Acts are more likely than ever to be signed (or to be successful independently if getting signed is not the goal) if they have alot of social media followers.

  8. Hi James. Having a strong social following definitely can help, as long as they’re genuine followers that are responsive to your communications.

    Hi, great website and it’s answered loads of my questions..

    I’m interested in creating a facebook page for myself as an artist – and I’m really unsure whether to use my existing FB page with my existing 190 odd friends as a starting point.. or whether to start a brand new artist page?

    My thoughts are that my existing facebook page would act as a marketing tool in itself, by promoting my music to my friends, their friends, etc… But at the same time, I wouldn’t want my friends to get annoyed with weekly/daily updates from me as an artist when they just want to be my friend…?

    Your advice will be most appreciated..

    Thanks

  10. Hi Zahra. I’d start a new page and invite friends to join it. That way if they want to follow your music career, they’ll sign up to that as well. You make a good point about annoying friends, that’s not a good idea. Definitely keep them separate, there’s no harm in starting out small. Good luck!
