Music promotions are a great way to get more plays and listeners honed in to your sound, but how do you know if youre getting a good deal on them?
Ive taken the liberty of scouring the internet for the best promotions for indie artists, and Ill continually add more to the page as opportunities arise.
Direct links to the pages are included on this post, so if you want to try out more than one promotion, justuse the buttons on THIS page!
A quick word of advice as well. Although some of these services may be cheap, dont be afraid to spend more to get better results.
STOP looking for the free way out on everything. Thats how to end up without a music career (like the millions of aspiring musicians today).
No one needs to give you a chance. YOU need to give YOU a chance!
Youll need aFiverraccount for many of these services.Click the button below to join.(Its free to sign up, and most services on the site are just $5)
Ive listed some of the lower cost services below, butyou get out what you put in!
Say you have $5 tobuy Soundcloud playswith. You cant expect you get 5,000 plays out of that (at least not real plays). Serious artists usually get professional campaigns, so Ill list the professional campaigns here, and if you have a little bit of a higher budget,I HIGHLY recommend going with the professional service.
Otherwise, the gigs listed below will do fine as well. Try them out and see what works best for you!Some services listed here only do certain genres or certain styles of music, so please read each checkout page when ordering for full details. Happy promoting & congratulations in advance on the new fans!
*This first service does not promote any explicit content*
One of the songs that took advantage of premium promotion from my service
Daimoon Markethas a solid reach inSpotify playlists&Soundcloud reposts. They have a reach up to 10 million for SoundCloud reposts and 500,000 for Spotify playlist followers. The bigger the campaign, the more Spotify/SoundCloud and its algorithm will generate additional streams through Discover Weekly & Release Radar!
Music Crowns takes free submissions, but to be honest with you… The free submissions arent going to get any features at all. Instead, they have a guaranteed promotion that starts at just$10!
With some of their packages, they post it on their Facebook page (Over 2,201,757 fans)
Their most popular post once reached as many as 100s of MILLIONS of people (not an exaggeration).
If thats not worth spending $10 for your music, Id pick a different career.
These guys seem to really take their time and listen to the artists when they give a review. Their services start at just $5 too!
They place the review on their site, and you can get gig extras for them to tweet it out to their Facebook or Twitter page for very little cost.
Jamsphere has a solid Twitter following at over 200K, and they post a review of your submitted songs to their site (as well as 7 other social sites).
You can even get the gig extras to get press in more magazines and blogs for a minimal extra cost. (Well worth it)

Couldnt forget about myself! I dont currently have a guaranteed promotion system because theres certain types of content I dont feature on my blog.
Instead, I havefree submissions. So if it doesnt get featured, its no biggie. (That should in NO way stop you from submitting though. Some people get hundreds of social shares from being featured on the blog)
Getting 1,000 plays off a promotion can be pretty cool. You may have only paid $5 and gotten what seems to be the better end of a deal.
But… In the end.Those 1,000 plays dont equal any measurable revenue.Im not all about the money, but its rewarding achieving full-time status in a field of aspiring musicians who are trying to do the same thing.
99% (If not 99.9%) of musicians do not have the necessary items in their back system to get the most out of a promotion.
No website (optimized for conversions that is).
No good email copy, or a working list at all for that matter.
No upsells for their singles or albums.
No steady traffic that brings in revenue.
To get the most for your dollar, you have to know what youre doing.Dont make the mistake of thinking youve got everything down pat when youre missing huge streams of revenue.(If youre not making a full-time income from your music, youre missing streams of revenue)
