BeatStars is Now on Discord [+Neworking Tips!]
Creators on BeatStars are spread out all over the world, from San Francisco to Africa, but fortunately there’s a special place where our community can come closer together. We’re excited to now announce that BeatStars is on Discord!
Discord is a free voice, video, and text chat app where people can form connections and talk daily about topics they love. BeatStars’ diverse community of producers, artists, and music service providers made joining Discord a no-brainer, and we’re ready to help you build authentic connections in our channel’s space.
You’ll find a new question for engagement everyday on our channel to spark conversation, as well as weekly event updates, the latest playlisting opportunities, and placement achievements by fellow BeatStars members. Networking and forming professional connections is extremely important to the success of you and your music career, and we hope that the launch of our Discord channel will make relationship building in a digital world easier to tackle.
If you aren’t already living on Discord, consider the following networking and connection building tips as you sign up and join the BeatStars channel:
Ask Questions and Listen
Our wide-spread community is from all different walks of life. You never know who you may be talking to, but that’s what asking questions and active listening is for.
Share your Handles
If you’re on the lookout for a potential collaboration or a particular sound pack, drop your social or BeatStars handle! Being around other creatives on Discord offers a world of possibilities for networking and collaborative projects.
Exuding positivity and getting others to laugh helps draw people into your circle. If you have a sense of humor, use it!
Whether it’s online or in-person, people can sense genuinity and authenticity. Be yourself, and like-minded people will gravitate towards you.
Drop Your Expectations
Sometimes connections work out, and sometimes they don’t. To avoid future disappointment or frustration, it helps to go into networking opportunities with zero expectations. Let your relationships build naturally, and drop your expectations of gaining something from every person you meet.
