You want to know how to get signed? The answer is: with a lot of hard work. Nobody gets something for nothing and if you work really hard and persevere you will get there. Perseverance is key though. There will always be failure and rejection but part of the key is learning from what didn’t happen. Mistakes are crucial to forwarding your career. Wherever possible, obtain feedback so you can move forwards with new information and always take it professionally.
Be professional. In every sense professionalism is the key. You are trying to sell yourself and that means that how you present yourself makes a huge difference. You have to become a brand. Create a public image and put it out there. Be conscious of what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Learn what others have done but don’t copy them, make your own path through understanding what pathways others have walked. You have to show the world that you exist and what your existence is all about. Exposure leads to followers which leads to demand which leads to getting signed.
