Feid took center stage at the 2023 Billboard Latin Music Week to share the secrets behind “The Marketing of Ferxxo” on Tuesday (Oct. 3). 

During the conversation — moderated by AJ Ramos, head of artist partnerships, Latin music and culture at YouTube Music/Google — the Colombian artist was joined by his inner circle: his producer & engineer Esteban Higuita; manager Luis Villamizar; sister and creative director Manuela Villada; lead guitarist Pedro Mejia; and Salomon Palacios III, senior vp marketing and artist strategy, Universal Music Latin. 

Below, check out the best marketing tips Feid and his team shared during the panel:

1. Less goes a long way: “The best ideas are those that don’t need a budget.” — Feid

2. Be authentic: “Every time I speak a funny thing that occurs to me, it connects with people. I stopped putting on a facade and was myself.” — Feid on his social media strategy

3. Dream big: “We dream first, then we discuss with the team, and later land with the ideas.” — Luis Villamizar

4. Have faith: “Green [Feid’s go-to color] means hope, the mountains of Medellín, where I come from, and why not? Some [dollar] bills. This project has always believed a lot in faith, and my team is clear that something good is going to come.” — Feid

5. Build a team: “I am sure that I am not going to get anywhere alone. I see it as a soccer team. I’ve always wanted us to win together. I have never liked to say ‘I’ did this. This is a team effort.” — Feid

6. Be persistent: “Ever since I met him, his melodies and intentions were very well-formed. He had his own style. He has never given up and that’s the great secret behind Feid.” — Pedro Mejía
