50 physical CD mailings and 15 High Resolution MP3's to Overseas targets via DropBox.
This package should include 1 CD (provided to us by the artist) along with an artist One-Sheet. We don't suggest you add extra photos and articles about your band, as this is perceived as clutter and unprofessional.
A targeted List
We put together a targeted list of stations that are appropriate for Blues, Roots and Americana Music. You’ll have the most luck if you limit your promotional project to targets that will realistically consider your music.
Knowing whom to contact
We will address your package directly to the person we are trying to reach at the station. In most cases it will be the individual “show host” (some stations also have a music director). We don't send your package just addressed to the station as that would either get lost in the shuffle or thrown in the garbage.
We can be specific on the One Sheet
If you are you promoting a specific song or group of songs it's important to be clear to the host or music director, as they may not have time to listen to your entire album and decide what will work. In the One Sheet we can highlight anything that you want them to specifically consider for Airplay.
We will follow up by phone and/or email in a couple of weeks to make sure they received it, had a chance to listen, and ask if they’ll be adding it to their playlist. If they say NO. We will politely ask “why” and say thanks if they give us a reason. If they say yes, we will give them a quick thanks and casually ask if we can get an email on any playlists they will include your music on.
Make sure the Artist Contact Information is complete on the One Sheet
They may want to contact you for a “bumper” (“hey, we're and your listening to ”)
They may want to ask for Promo Copies of your CD as giveaways for listener contests or fund-raising.
Some may do “in studio live performances”... you never can tell when you will be nearby their studios.
