Progressing in the music industry does not have to be expensive. Here are 4 cheap and effective things you can do today to save money on music marketing.
Have you heard of Fiverr?
It’s the worlds biggest ‘fixed price’ marketplace where freelancers from all over the world offer their skills for just $5 (or £3.99). Admittedly, it can be a bt of a lottery in terms of the quality of work but if you are careful and check the user reviews each service or ‘gig’ before you buy, you can find some real bargains.
Here are five of our top picks from Fiverr to help push your music career forward:
Get an animated lyric video for a song for $5
Need some video content to tease your next song on Instagram or Facebook? Get a 1 minute lyric video created for just $5. If you would prefer the full song pay a little extra and it will make a perfect Youtube upload.
Top tip: Be as specific as you can when describing the style you want, send examples of fonts you like, background images or colurs etc. The more specific you are, the more likely you will get the perfect video made!

Get a track mixed / mastered
OK, so this one is a bit risky and personally I wouldn’t trust an audio engineer who sells his services for a fiver but if you are willing to take a gamble you might just get some good results. If you want to play this one safer, check out the list of mastering services in our free music industry directory.
