What to post

As an artist, you can post anything you’d like on Ampled. Think of your posts as a place for content beyond your albums that your audience might enjoy, like personal essays, demos, audio snippets, and videos. You’ll be able to choose whether or not to make your posts public (to anyone who visits your page) or private (to paying supporters only).
If you’re not sure where to start, ask yourself a few questions:
  • What makes you different from other musicians?
  • What other hobbies and interests would you be excited to share with your supporters? (E.g. a visual art practice, fiction or poetry writing, a deep love of plants)
  • How can you show your process? Ampled is a place to offer a glimpse behind the curtain.
Here are some post ideas to get you started:
