Our Exclusive Drunken Coconut Interview – Find out how to get your music heard!
Everyone knows that sadly talent isn´t enough to “make it” in this saturated world of “me too” producers and artists. A few months ago while browsing through some Facebook Groups I discovered a free downloadable guide called “Sacred Coconut Writings” which peaked my interest. It was full with really valuable info so I decided to further investigate who these guys were and if they were legit. Turns out they´re two very friendly and super competent canadians. When they told me about their newest plans i decided I just HAD to interview them. So without further ado please enjoy the interview with The Drunken Coconut.
Who are you and what do you do?

1) Branding & Content: The number one thing you have to do before anything is to create a solid, and professional brand that represents you. We see thousands of artists jump the gun too fast and skip this important step. You cannot do anything or get anywhere in this industry if you do not have a brand of some sort. You need to be able to pitch to industry professionals and various contacts and without a brand, you are going to find it very difficult to move forward. Make sure all your socials are branded the same and all links work, make sure it is professional looking and you take no shortcuts, and make sure you have high-quality content. We cannot stress this enough. You need to start your first step on a strong note. Skipping this or giving it 50% is not acceptable. You will just be causing more work for yourself in the future.
2) Spending money on promotion/ads without doing research: This is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, problem we see. Artists finish their track and are excited to get to the promotion stage. They look up the first company or individual who offers something enticing and just pay. It isn’t long before they take to social media saying they have been scammed and received fake statistics or none at all. We get it, there are thousands of sketchy/scammy sites out there that offer, what seems to be, amazing deals and services. Our advice to you, and we cannot stress this enough, is to do a bit of research on the company you are about to pay. Spend 10-20 minutes looking for more information, reach out to them, ask for testimonials, etc etc. If anything feels off to you then it’s safe to say that you should look somewhere else.
This also goes for marketing of any kind. When you are about to spend money on advertising, promotion, or whatever service you need, make sure to research everything you can. You don’t want to end up losing money on something that could have been avoided. We would also recommend to reach out to a few different companies or platforms to compare. Shop around before diving into something unknown.
