FROM THE DESK OF JEFF DOLAN

Musicians have an advantage in the social game

Last night I learned one needs to have 1,000 TikTok followers to join lives as a guest.

I jumped on TikTok to see how this dynamic plays out.

I watched a speed dating show where several suitors could not even speed date because they didn't have enough followers.

Then I stumbled across a musician playing her guitar live to 100 viewers. She was playing covers from chat suggestions with her originals mixed in.

I was floored at the talent level. She was of course living in Nashville but from a small town looking to make it in Music City.

Her Spotify showed she had 7,000+ followers. Not bad at all but not yet at the level she could start to tour and make a living at it.

She definitely had hit potential and was doing everything right. I just happened to catch her early in her career.

I share all this to say this:

If your content allows you to entertain and connect on a soul level, you are already way ahead of all the self-help, educational channels.

So as a musician, embrace the idea that you should be streaming every day doing what you love. It's the equivalent of playing a show every night to hundreds of people.

You will not only grow your audience and following, but you will get exponentially better faster.

WAVVE DESIGN OF THE WEEK

I liked seeing this Wavve Design this week because it adds a few things that I encourage you to try. It has a little notice to "Tap to turn sound on" as well as a reminder to "Send this to a friend" 👏. Both can increase engagement and reach.

Also notice it uses the rare 4x5 format, which gives you more screen space on mobile in the feed than any other video size. This helps you increase your chance to grab attention.

And with a nice design overall with space for captions, a big headline, and episode information on where to find the clip, it's a winning combo. Great job!
