Here’s The Shortcut To Get Thousands of REAL, Human Fans

Grow your influence, get more plays, and make an income from your music
In an industry over cluttered by countless artists all trying to “make it,” the same old ways no longer work.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably like the OLD me: 
Talented, dedicated, optimistic, yet somehow, completely unknown.

My name is Anthony Pacheco and I went from no-name band member to charting on Billboard with my very first album.

But just a few short years ago, the band I was in, Dwellings, wasn’t signed by any label. We had a small but loyal fan base, but it just wasn’t growing.
At the time I was 100% musician and 0% marketer. We simply didn’t know how to amplify our voice and get our name out there without just bothering strangers.
Turns out that just sharing our tracks on social media was exactly what every other musician was doing.
We were camouflaging in.
Not standing out.
And we were stagnating because of it.

How to market effectively and grow exponentially

By switching gears and utilizing a few easy strategies, we were able to explode our fan base while simultaneously getting featured in Alternative Press, New Fury Media, and even charted Billboard on our debut album.
Instead of continuing to “pound the pavement” and force feed our music to people who clearly weren’t interested, we flipped the script and simply put ourselves in front of the fans who were most likely to enjoy our music, then let them come to us.

The process is simple:
  • Target THE RIGHT audience
  • Pique their interest in a meaningful, irresistible way
  • Leverage Spotify’s own algorithm to snowball that success and attract EVEN MORE fans
This process isn’t complicated to do.
It doesn’t require a record label or manager.
You don’t have to “know somebody on the inside.”
And best of all, it works regardless of what type of genre you’re in, or who your core audience is.

Use Facebook and Instagram in a way that WORKS

Using Facebook’s insanely powerful advertising A.I., you can find new listeners with insane accuracy for just pennies on the dollar and minutes per day.
Few people realize just how powerful the artificial intelligence of Facebook is.
Even fewer are properly utilizing it.
But when leveraged correctly, tools like Facebook Audience Insights, Spotify for Artists and Facebook Ads Manager basically give you an unfair advantage.
And in a world where 40,000 new songs get released on Spotify EVERY DAY, it’s important to take every leg-up you can get!

Introducing: Academy: An End-To-End Tutorial For Getting Fans, Features, and Upward Movement in Your Music Career

I created Academy to be the tutorial I wish my band would have discovered years ago.
You’ll find out, in dummy-proof detail, exactly how to:
  • Build a “target market” and appeal to them
  • Find and contact press outlets in a way that gets positive responses
  • Run advertising in a professional, effective way that makes you seem like a “hot new sound” instead of a desperate independent artist yearning for attention
Anthony has been working with my band I Met A Yeti, leading our marketing campaigns and social media. Anthony excels at all of these projects in a timely manner with clear and easy communication. He's gone above and beyond for our project, and I am confident he applies this same drive to all of his work. I would without question recommend Anthony to anyone in need of marketing assistance.

Daisy Chamberlain, I Met A Yeti
One of the major pivot points in the last 10 years of making music was my marketing sessions with Anthony. I cannot recommend enough the services of simpl. and with their help I now know what to do with my music when I finish making it (and reap the benefits/enjoyment of seeing people all over the world interact with it!).


Bryan Wehrkhamp, Companyon
Before I met Anthony I was ready to give up on my music. I had been grinding for a little over two years but had basically made no progress. I was fortunate enough to cross paths with him and he taught me everything I know about music marketing.

I have made more progress with my music career in the past 6 months than I ever thought imaginable, and I owe it to him.

Academy is a step-by-step video library that will teach you:

  • How to advertise different angles to different audiences and find the niche that “clicks”
  • How to use the psychological laws of content marketing to explode your streams, merch sales and fan base
  • How to SCALE UP by understanding the nuts and bolts of public relations, online advertising and Spotify playlisting
  • How to reach out and contact the “decision makers” of the music industry in order to be featured, written about and followed. (Includes dozens of easy templates you can just copy, paste, and send!)

How much is Academy?

Not $1,000 – though I know many artists would gladly pay it. (I would have!)
It’s not even $100.
Access to Academy is only $27 per month.
Keep it as long as you use it, and you’re not locked into contracts whatsoever.
