...But the fact remains that you can certainly make a whole damn lotta money promoting other people on social media!

It is just one more example of the propensity that humans have for the "division of labor" (the basis of almost all modern commerce).

I don't know if that's good or bad or right or wrong.

I just know that's the way it is.
I think it's only a waste of time if what you're pushing isn't interesting. I push stuff on social media and get decent traction, but it's because I've built fan loyalty in 6 years, I wish there were more full time artists on the forum to explain this a bit more, because I know that everyone has a different journey, but I believe it comes down to having good ideas and executing them well for the market of today.

Everyone can listen to what's going on now and study it, but few people can emulate the production techniques, vocal singing and lyrics so it sounds legit.
