Results:

  • 203 twitter followers.
  • No new page likes of Facebook.
  • 915 youtube views and still 7 subscribers.
  • Still 7 Patrons.

Friday- Day 6

Activities:

  • Added piano to the new track and finished the instrumental.
  • Began to think the advert on facebook was a waste of time or that I had designed a poor ad (though it turned out my payment had failed and it had been paused).
  • More twitter graft.

Results:

  • 249 twitter followers.
  • No new Facebook likes.
  • 1135 Youtube views and 9 subscribers.
  • 7 Patrons.

Saturday- Day 7

Activities:

  • Added vocals to the track.
  • Realised Facebook ad had paused and sorted payment.
  • Started asking around for guest bloggers.

Results:

  • 274 twitter followers.
  • No new Facebook likes.
  • 1276 Youtube views. Still 9 Subscribers.
  • 7 Patrons.

Summary:

I have had loads of great feedback on twitter and met some great people already. Even though the views and followers are increasing steadily, I still want to improve engagement as the whole point is to create a community of 1000 people who are strongly involved in my music.

I am impressed with the reach of AdWords so far but not with the conversion. I appreciate my budget is low and I am new to it so this may improve. My best results so far have been from twitter in my opinion.

Next weeks results will be up Sunday night. Thanks.
