Believe it or not, bus ads can be a great way to promote your music. While it may not be popular in this part of the world, it is an untapped goldmine to look into, especially in cities where there are several buses already covered in ads. You can purchase space on these buses to promote your album or upcoming shows. These spaces are often cheaper than you think and you can even speak to bus owners to let you have your ads on their buses. This is a great way to reach a wide audience, as buses travel through many different neighborhoods and communities. Plus, it’s a great way to get your name out there in a big way!
Similar to bus ads, billboards can be a powerful way to promote your music offline. Whether you’re promoting an upcoming show or your latest album, billboards are a great way to catch people’s attention. You can target your billboard ads to specific neighborhoods or areas to make sure you’re reaching your target audience.
While this also seem untapped in Nigeria, several Nigerian artists are already leveraging the power of billboard ads in Europe and America.
Radio is still one of the most effective ways to get your music out there. Whether it’s a local university radio station or a major commercial station, radio gives you the opportunity to reach a wide audience. Many radio stations offer opportunities for artists to come in for interviews or live performances, which can be a great way to get exposure and build your fan base.
