Remember, in the music distribution jungle, content is king. The more content you put out around your music, the better your chance of getting your music heard. Very few independent music artists have or take the opportunity to properly distribute music videos. Still, you can go the extra mile beyond the average, put in the work, and take the opportunity to set yourself apart.
