In theory, it could be argued that the Inbound Marketing Methodology was created specifically for the music industry. Complete strangers get attracted to your music whether it be through a blog, social media posting or referral. From listening to your music, intrigue builds and those strangers become social media followers and now might go and directly search for your interviews and videos. They're impressed, now you've got them. So when they see the iTunes link for your next offering, they click without hesitation. Of course, they love it and tell all of their friends about the great new album they just bought and the process starts all over again.
Now of course the one (pretty substantial) variable in this, the product. No amount of marketing dollars or effort can ever make up for an inferior product. But with a remarkable product, you can produce remarkable content that'll help grow your brand.
By definition, the Inbound Marketing Methodology lays out the blueprint for turning complete strangers into your promoters of your brand. As a musician, you just want to share your craft with the world, getting paid for it is just the icing on the cake. You can use inbound to make sure that icing is the sweetest.
