4 Strategies to Help You Come Up With Good Music Lyrics

If you wish to come up with good music lyrics, you need to:

  1. Have a good idea of what your song is all about: So the idea here is to be very clear on the topic (the main theme) you are singing about. Only then will you will be in a position to figure out how to tackle it lyrically in an appropriate manner.
  2. Create a simple chorus that everyone can sing along to: You come to realize that in most cases, the songs that are considered ‘good’ are those that have simple chorus verses that all people can sing along to. So this is something you need to consider when writing your lyrics.
  3. Use a great deal of humor: Having identified the topic/theme you are to sing about (see tip 1) above, you need to find ways of tackling the topic in a humorous way, in order to entertain your song’s listeners. Remember, music is supposed to be entertainment.
  4. Ensure that your lyrics fit well into the melody: That is why many people consider it a good idea to first come up with the melody, then get lyrics to fit into it. But even if you decide to start with the lyrics first and do the melody later, you should nonetheless ensure that the lyrics and the melody sync well.
  5. Listen to other songs for lyric writing ideas: The idea here is not for you to copy other musicians’ lyrics. On the contrary, the objective is for you to listen keenly to other musicians (especially those who are considered good), to try and understand what the secret to their lyric writing prowess is. This is still what you would be expected to do, even if you were engaged in other creative processes — like if you were a software designer. Suppose, for instance, you were an online software developer, and you were told to design an online portal for a certain company’s car dealership department. Wouldn’t you, in that case, consider visiting other similar portal – including GM’s global connect portal in order to get practical ideas? What then, is wrong with you [as an upcoming musician] listening to other established musicians’ lyrics, in order to get lyric writing ideas from them?

How to Market Your Music Online

There are several strategies that you can use to market your music online.

First, you need to consider setting up a YouTube channel. Once you have the YouTube channel, you can upload your music there. Then, with your music uploaded onto your YouTube channel, all you would need to do is encourage your fans to visit and subscribe to your YouTube channel. You can then monetize the whole thing through Ad revenue: where you would be earning money whenever the folks who visit your channel/view your music videos are exposed to ads. It is a straightforward arrangement. When you come to think of it, the procedure you need to follow is as simple as that of checking your prepaid card’s balance at www.prepaidcardstatus.com.

Secondly, you need to consider uploading your music onto online platforms where people can pay for it. So here we are looking at platforms like Apple’s iTunes as well as the Shopify platform. Those are just the most famous ones. There are lots of other similar platforms, operating on smaller scales. And even if you earn little revenue from each of them, you can still end up with a reasonable amount of money cumulatively.

Thirdly, you need to consider setting up a website through which you can sell your music directly. The process of setting up such a simple website (through which you can be selling your music) is not as hard as you may fear initially. Neither is the process of getting traffic to your music-selling website likely to be very hard — especially if yours is good music and you already have a solid fanbase.

Fourthly, you need to consider setting up social media accounts for the purpose of marketing your music. Through the said social media accounts, you can be letting your fans know whenever you have new releases, so that they can buy them. You can also use the social media accounts to direct fans to your YouTube channel as well as the various platforms on which you are selling your music. You can be sure that at least some of your fans will heed your calls and proceed to buy your music – especially if it is truly good music.
