5 Tips for Getting Blog Coverage
From Praverb (RIP)
You have finally finished recording a new album. Mixing and mastering is done.
The process is over. But you are still stressed about something.
You suddenly realize that you haven't put together a marketing strategy.
You scramble to find an email list full of influential bloggers. You craft your email pitch perfectly. You tell the recipient about your music, your passion and the story behind your music.
But one thing is eluding you, an effective subject line for your email.
Don't worry you are not alone. Releasing an album requires meticulous planning and more legwork than the actual recording process.
I decided to put together resources that will help you get more blog coverage. I wrote a post in 2011 called 5 Ways to submit music to websites and blogs. This post highlighted my approach in regards to pitching music.
I welcome you to use this information to your advantage. I also encourage you to share this information with friends, family and other creative people. Be a well of knowledge to those around you.
Digest this material and I guarantee you will be on your way to better music blog submissions.
