36 Sites Musicians Should Avoid

Comments: 0

Companies are flooding the Internet market like crazy, promising Artists ‘fame’ in the form of:

  • Fake followers (on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram)
  • Fake views (on YouTube)
  • Fake plays (on SoundCloud, ReverbNation, Spotify, and LiveMixtapes)

Buying fans is a guaranteed way for an artist to lose money. They promise to be “100% real”, but in the end, most of these services are automated by “bots” that use janky marketing tactics that drive unrealistic traffic to your social media accounts.

After they’ve scammed hundreds of people, most of the sites shut down. Don’t waste your time or money fooling with these companies. Here’s a list we’ve compiled:
