How G-Eazy increased his streaming numbers and grew his social reach in just 12 months

How G-Eazy increased his streaming numbers and grew his social reach in just 12 months

Rapper G-Eazy and his social team are some of the best social marketers in the industry. They have created a strong brand through his social media accounts. Collectively, across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter he has roughly 7.6 million social followers. In the last 12 months, G-Eazy has grown his social following by roughly 3 million followers. If you look at his feeds, they are filled with premium behind the scenes moments captured by his content team. Although his social following has been increasing his engagement has somewhat stalled out, and he’s not alone.
Major social networks changed their algorithms behind their feeds last year which gives priority to personal friend’s posts over branded pages. Since social networks are built around the feed system, it makes it harder for artists content to be seen, even though they have millions of followers. Now the artist is forced to pay for boosted posts to reach fans they already have. In 2016 Kosta Elchev from Stashimi approached G-Eazy’s management team to discuss how the new platform they built could help in growing the artist’s career.

The service was Artist Messenger, and it focused on using Messaging and Voice platforms as the new untapped marketing channels. Collectively, messaging apps have over 2 billion monthly users, and the Voice market is exponentially growing due to the competitive landscape between Google, Amazon, and Apple. The idea of Artist Messenger was to see if the tool could help increase G-Eazy’s social engagement by taking his existing fans from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and converting them into Messenger subscribers. By turning his fans into subscribers in Messenger, he was able to send direct push-notifications around his important announcements, which allowed him to bypass the tricky social feed algorithms. Since the launch of his Messenger chatbot, G-Eazy’s social engagement has increased from 5.38% to upwards of 30% and has been able to grow his following by millions.

Artists are discovering Artist Messenger is the best tool for them to create a direct line to their fans. Today the only way for you to get in front of your fans is through the social feeds, which are passive and at the end of the day controlled by the networks algorithms. Artist Messenger through Facebook Messenger chatbots gives the artists a way to bypass the social feeds and engage with their fans directly. The platform is built around automatically updating fans by knowing when there’s new social posts, news articles, YouTube uploads, or music releases. The biggest advantage to artists is they have direct access to their fans with push-notifications making it easier for them to get their content seen.
Over the past year, Artist Messenger has been working with some of the biggest major and indie artists to test and perfect the service before they officially launched. As of two weeks ago, any musician can now sign up for the service and start connecting with their fans on Messenger.

Interview with Author W. E. Adams

1. Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Writing energizes me

2. What are common traps for aspiring writers?

They think that everything is going to take off for them right out of the gate. Or that their work is done once the book is written.

3. Does a big ego help or hurt writers?

I would say both. It can equally help or hurt an author.

4. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

I would tell my younger self to take your time, and never let someone tell you that you can't do something.

5. How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?

It made me realize that I made a lot of mistakes. Now I have a formula and know exactly what needs to be done.

6. What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?

I would have to say my own. Everyone else that I read seems to be doing very well.

7. What one thing would you give up to become a better writer?

I would have to say video games. I am heavily into gaming.

8. Does your family support your career as a writer?

Lol...funny that you asked that question. They do now. But everyone thought that I was joking when I said that I was going to write a book.

9. Are you currently working on a book? If yes what is it about?

I actually have just finished my third book. It will be in the survival/zombie apocalypse genre.

Take a break from the Business to have "GAME NIGHT"

When it comes to Business, the Business Minded Website is not only dedicated to shining a spotlight on entrepreneurs and their profitable business ventures, but this site was also created to avail valuable information to business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs on how to chart their path to a successful business.  An important piece of information and tip we would like to share with you readers today is that it's very important to take breaks.

In between working hard and completing tasks that move you forward to your success within your industry, it's crucial that you take time for yourself, relax, and carve out moments for leisure.  Many studies support this.  One way to kick back and relax is with friends, and what better way to spend time with friends while enjoying their company is by setting aside a "Game Night".

During the Game Night, you and your company could indulge in multi-player board games, trivia, and more to ease tension from working hard and to refresh you for the upcoming tasks ahead.  The nerdcore rap super group S.P.F. (Symphonic Pheenix Force) knows the importance of enjoying your friends while entertaining them for "Game Night" so much that they have even created a song based on the concept of having a game night.

You may listen to the song at the direct link below
