/b/ why is it so god damn hard to get noticed for something real? Not memes, not acting out like a twat, a real legit chance? Why is it like pulling teeth in this decade?
I'm 25, I've been trying to get noticed since I was 16 for my music, or my "show" on youtube (it doesn't exist due to google being an ass about my google drive, deleting it and my youtube)... But like I see fucking shit tards over here making memecraft, other craptastic videos and I'm over here going "Hey I did a thing that is actually neat, and I want to talk about it, but no you go ahead and act like a 12 year old raging"
WHY IS THAT FUNNY?
/b/ I don't understand youtube any more...
▒▒▓▓▓████▌Hello, Darkness, my old friend.▐████▓▓▓▒▒

>thinks youtube is a way to get noticed now
lmfao, you fucking retard. Anyone who gets into YT now (like me, been doing it for a while, 8 months ish) is doing it for fun, not for money or to get noticed.
SEO is the key my friend. Good keywords for your stuff on YT as well as good titles etc. Search rankings.
You're never going to compete with what's out there already. Get a fucking job and keep your fucking head down, idiot.
>probably only had a YT channel like a month and makes music on a piece of software lol

I was 16 when I started. I've been on there for years, had 2 different accs. I even fucking said you dumbshit. Are you this fucking retarded?
Someone pointed out that the reason their friends don't listen to their work is due to their friends hearing their music in the beginning and saying it was bad then, but then he finally got decent, got better at everything, went to /prod/ and they helped him and he got better, but his friends still think he's bad without even giving his music a chance.
So really, it boils down to not knowing enough people I think.
Yeah I saw that too, I was a bit mad.

So - here is the deal, there is a reason that people in PR / Marketing make so much fucking money. A good product is only a single piece of a puzzle. And that is assuming your product is any good in the first place.
That is why bands play 100s of shit shows, and still never get "noticed". That is why talented artists give it up after a decade and get "a real job". Same with writers. And god, don't even get me started on "actors/actresses/models".
I know a young rapper - you've never heard of him - that dude fucking HUSTLES. He is in his 20s and he fucking hangs out and raps on school campuses and I mean fucking highschool / gradeschool / he doesn't give a fuck. He is everywhere. 30k likes/followers all that shit. He's been doing this for years, and you know what? he aint' famous. You want to be in entertainment, you have a rough fucking road in front of you. I'm sorry that is just how it goes.
If you want real tips on how to get noticed, go find out how other bands made it. how much ( and what kind ) or work they put in. I liked Kid Rock's story - that fucker hustled his product for sure. when he played a show he was already bringing in his own crowd that he marketed to. would get kids out talking about his shows paying them in fucking KidRock hoodies and stuff.

▒▒▒▒▒▒▓▓▓▓▓▓▓████████▌in the wells▐████████▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▒▒▒▒▒▒
cont. I've started two small companies based off of "great" ideas I had. Neither of them went fucking anywhere. I mean I got the product made in china, I fucking still use the ones I made... but I sold like.. 1.
why? because I can't hustle for shit. When I still stuff for work, I have a fucking marketing budget. I buy ads. I cross promote with other brands. But for my own stuff, I spent everything on production costs lol.
Sure I told a bunch of people, even some in the industry this product was for.. got a review or three, right?
But I can't do the footwork... i can't hang out with 1000 people at parties, or hang out at video game tournaments, or spend fucking time following other shits on IG, so they will follow me, etc.. etc.. etc...
So think of all that work as just the fucking starting point for a successful career.

You're either making poor content that people aren't interested in or you're not taking advantage of how youtube searches for content. Look it up and put in popular search queries into your videos.

something else to think about. a big movie right - they will spend more on marketing the movie than they do making it. there is a reason for that.
think about how much time you make creating content, and how much you spend marketing it.
