How important is video to your music marketing?

People that are passionate about music however will always try to start a band and do whatever it takes to become famous.
Becoming famous with your band requires a lot of promotion, because there are surely thousands of bands already in the genre you chose, so you must come up with something unique but also viral that will stir up the the attention to your band.
Probably the best way to promote your band is by creating a video. Sure, demo CDs will also work, but seeing the band in action visually is more impressive, and will surely bring more attention to your band. Some of the best video environments where you can create and share such a promotional video is surely YouTube.

Be sure to post information about your band in the description and also include links to your albums, if you already have it on iTunes or any other similar stores.
Video clips will also share the passion you have for your music with the audience. The best idea when you create a video clip is to hire a well known video production company that can also help you with the distribution process, as most of them have already lots of connections in this field of work.
If your videos are popular enough on YouTube or any other similar platforms, you will surely be awarded more gigs than you are right now. This is the most important thing you can do for promoting your band.
After creating and distributing the videos, you can also use other promotional methods to make your band more popular, such as creating a website for the band, developing unique t-shirts, sharing flyers with upcoming shows, be active on social media and make giveaways to your fans from time to time. While these may seem simple, at least in the beginning, they will surely help you use the fame you got from the videos to your advantage.
