Collaborate & Align with Other Artists

When it comes to making music, you know better than anyone the value of collaboration — and it's no different here on ZinBin. By engaging with artists or producers you've collaborated with, artists with a similar feel, or even musicians who've inspired you, you'll begin to widen your exposure.

Create bins that feature some of your favorite work where you've collaborated or worked with other artists. Make sure to include a wide variety of people you've worked with, whether it be musicians, singers, or producers. Share across your socials and tag the artists to engage their audience. Soon enough, it will establish connection between their work and yours.

Next, utilize Bins to align with similar artists by combining your work and theirs. Create a bin with a one or two of your songs and fill the rest with work from artists you feel put out a similar sound. It's likely their listeners will be interested in your work, like when you discover someone new on Spotify radio.

Don't forget to showcase your inspiration too. Create a bin with songs by a certain artist who influenced your work. Maybe you've sampled or covered another artist's work. Make a Bin with that song and similar songs by the artist who inspired you.

These alignment Bins aren't only tied to sound. Maybe there's an artist in a different genre, but their audience resembles your existing audience. Attract them using a combined Bin of your music and theirs. As always, make sure to share everything to your social and tag the other artists to engage their audience and bring even more awareness to your work.

Now that your bin is complete, the first person you'll want to share it with is the artist you  collaborated with or admire. Send them your curated bin as a token of appreciation of their work. Let them know they can share it across their social channels. Their fans will benefit from having more content to enjoy, and you will increase traffic to your ZinBin profile leading to greater awareness of you and your brand.

Even if they don't share your bin to their social, you can post it on yours! Share this bin on social media and tag the artist to let their fans know you're connected.

So, let's dive into some tips for making this bin, or skip down below for an illustrated, step-by-step tutorial.

Bins can be discovered by ZinBin users in the app when they search for specific keywords like a person's name. You'll want your bin to show up if anyone searches for this artist so they're introduced to your content as well. When naming your bin, the best tactic for discoverability is to include the other artist's name in the title. Feel free to get creative with it and make sure to include a one sentence description of the bin.

Now that your bin is complete, you're ready to share it and get noticed. Click the arrow button to pull up several different ways to share — we are natively integrated with all the apps! Clicking "copy link" is the best way to get a link to your bin that can be shared to the social and messaging platforms you use most.
