FORMATTING YOUR THREAD TITLES TO GET MORE LISTENS/FEEDBACK

Post by wub » Mon Aug 22, 2011 6:05 pm

Thread Titles - guidelines

So as to maximise the number of listens/amount of feedback your tune receives, the following thread title format is recommended;

Artist - Track Title (Genre/description)

This gives the something viewing the Dubs board a clear idea of what your tune is called and more importantly what it sounds like at a glance.

For example, if a producer called Al Packer put up a deep/minimal tune called Woolstep, the thread title would read;

Al Packer - Woolstep (Deep/Minimal)

This clearly identifies the artist, track title and sub genre/decription, enabling people who are into the Deep/Minimal sound to spot more quickly which threads they might like.

Similarly, if an artist called Llama decided to post about his tune Spitting, which he considered to be a filth track influenced by Bar9, the thread title might read;

Llama - Spitting (Bar9 style filth)

Again, this thread title clearly states the artist and track name, as well as giving suggestions to the reader as to what sort of sound he can expect to hear from the tune in this thread.

Genres/descriptions to consider (but are not limited to);

Deep
Minimal
Dancefloor
Tearout
Filth
Brostep (though be careful, this word may carry some negative connotations)
Psy
Experimental
Classic
Drumstep
DnB
etc...

Things to avoid in your thread title
  • Mentioning your age. Beethoven was 12 when he released his first work, Jonny Cash was 72 when he released one of his best tracks. Age is irrelevant
  • LOTZ OF EXCLAMATIONZ!!!! You may well be excited about your tune, but let the music as opposed to Shift + 1 do the talking.
  • Asking for feedback aka please listen!. You can only have 60 characters in your thread title. Why waste some asking for feedback when the Image icon does that for you. Put the 60 characters to better use giving your clear artist/title name, and giving an informed description of what your tune is about.
