I hate submitting my music to blogs. Hate hate hate. The process goes something like this:
- Scour Hype Machine for blogs in my genre.
- Comment on said blogs regularly to “develop a personal relationship.”
- Gather relevant email addresses.
- Assemble a compelling pitch for my latest and greatest song.
- New email, copy/paste, send, rinse, repeat.
- Wait in vain for a response.
Hey, I understand. Music bloggers can receive hundreds of submissions per day. There’s no way they can check out that many songs, much less provide feedback. It’s not like they’re getting paid!
But what if they did get paid? Not for exposure. We’re not talking payola here. Just a token amount to compensate them for their time. Say… $0.50? That just might work.
You can submit your song to dozens of blogs (currently 59) for a buck a pop – less if you buy credits in bulk. Bloggers receive $0.50 per submission for their time and consideration.
