Don't mind the artwork-- I will get there one day - lol
There are tons of artist out here trying to get their music posted on blogs and many are going by this all wrong. Find out who you are sending the email to. Comment on their website so if doesn't look like you are trying t be a user. If the blog site thinks or feel like they are doing you a favor more than you doing for them ... you will more than likely get that email trashed.
Keep in mind- having a website cost- even if its a "FREE" website. The cost in free websites is time spent posting and updating. So, donate or comply to the small fee to get posted. Crunkatlanta.com only charge five dollars to be posted or ten dollars to be posted and being added to the digital magazine- Crunkatlanta Magazine.
Are you seeking to be posted?
You want me to post your material?
Why should I post your music and no one ever heard of you?
Money Talks - Paying the submission fee cut out all the detailed writing and gathering of info to win over the blogger. If money is not on your side ...
TRY THESE STEPS
Rule 1. Do Research
Artist you should research sites that upload or promote music that is similar to yours. Do not waste time trying to promote to bigger websites. Remember that coverage on bigger blogs is usually on how many comments a song or video can attract the blog site. To to find out the contact information and introduce yourself. Start in your own area and go further and further into international territories. Blogs in other countries are overlooked for some reason.
Rule 2. The Subject of E Mail
Subject matter is important - not all blogs cater to TRAP MUSIC, DOPE BOY MUSIC, EXPLICIT CONTENT, SEXUAL PREFERENCE or NUDITY.
Make sure that you value the importance of the subject of your email. A small summary of what the song is about would help. Music with a mission of change- Put yourself in that position and ask yourself - "Would you open this email'? Why should I?
Rule 3. DETAILS
Sending little or not enough information where the blogger has to locate and find material to add to the post is not a good idea. That email would be deleted.
Rule 4. Secure Attachments
The worst thing to experience is to learn that an attachment has a virus. Your name will spread fast among other bloggers if this happens. Make sure you own all the rights to what you are sending to be posted. A blogger can get into trouble for posting material and its copy written by someone else.
When using Youtube- Send the link and possible the embed code. Same as with other music sharing sites- like AudioMack and Soundcloud.
Rule 5. Personalize your emails
Never mass mail to a bunch of bloggers / people because you are to lazy to copy and paste into each email. I immediately delete those emails. If you are brand new to all of this, just take your time and get to know a few bloggers at a time and build that relationship. Bloggers that feel like you really appreciate them will post your material all the time.
PS: PROMOTE YOUR BUT OFF!!
If your song or video is uploaded and featured on a website please promote it. There is nothing like sharing the post to your friends and followers showing love to the website that featured you. Utilize your social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Last FM, SoundCloud, YouTube and more) to get the message around.
