When will my story be featured?
Your story will be featured on the first Friday of the month.
How will I know the date my story will be featured?
We like to have a variety of music with our Featured Artists, so if we had 10 submissions from metal bands, we would prefer to spread the articles out.
Most of the time, once you hear back from us confirming you to become featured, your article will be placed up usually in the second or third month after our initial contact.
However, if we do not receive your story in due time, and another artist submits their story to us before you, the preference would be to the artists who have submitted their story first. Based on first in, first serve to make it fair.
What if I have a release due, am I able to co-inside my release with the date of my featured article?
Yes. As long as you have clearly mentioned your release date and asked for this to co-inside. Your story and promotion will be placed the the first Friday of the month of which your new single/EP or tour is due.
How will we know when you are posting to social media?
For Twitter and Facebook, we tag you. Although sometimes due to Facebook’s constant changes we have at times been unable to find the artist and tag.
For Pinterest, LinkedIn and Google, the posts that are made through Facebook and Twitter are also replicated in the same week and posted at the best possible times suited to each individual social media platform.
Can we have a copy of our promo video for future use?
Yes you can. If you have signed up for the ‘packages that include the promo to keep’ this is automatically included.
However, if you would like to have a copy without another package, we can give this to you for a fee of $30. This would include our log on the outro, but should you wish for us to make your own logo to place at the end of your video promo, we would also give this video outro logo separately as well so you can use for other videos of yours. This will incur a $30 fee.
We also have a separate service on our services page here https://shop.musictalks.xyz/services where we can create video intros and outros separately, however these are more expensive if you are not a featured artist.
If I sign up to a larger package where our article or story is sent, how do we know they have received them and that a press release has been sent out?
We will do the best to keep track of publications that place your article or story up and request from them to tag us if they can to enable us to keep track.
We are able to give you the link to your press release and give you screenshots of who has seen it, the amount of views and who has placed it on their sites.
However with the larger packages which include a worldwide press release, I can GUARANTEE your story/press release will be published on over 400 sites that are highly recognized, such as the ABC, Fox and NBC which has also been syndicated to news RSS feeds and announced within the most popular news desk databases like Associated Press and MarketWatch that are collectively subscribed to by hundreds of thousands of journalists and bloggers.
Can I share my article from anywhere it has been placed?
Yes, absolutely. The more sharing the better for us all! Please do.
How do you target our individual audience?
We would place hashtags and tag the major artists. We also make sure that all text in alternative images within your featured page on the site are correct and has the established artists name so google know what’s on there. This can come up when fans of those established artists type into google and see a picture of the established artist which is on our site.
Do you do paid ads?
We have done general paid ads from time to time and we are very good at them. However, being paid adds does cost a lot more. The reach is obviously very great with paid ads and we can do these on both Facebook and Google. Keeping in mind, when you are doing paid ads, it’s always a good idea to follow through with a second and third ad to stimulate awareness. 96% of people who see ads or content they are not familiar with do not purchase from people. No-one, including those in other businesses should expect a miracle from one ad. This takes time to build up awareness and should be viewed at and exercised over a couple of months.
I’ve seen other music sites say they can get so many views and likes etc and guarantee that? Why don’t you do that?
So many sites who promise this will do this through white hat SEO techniques. While this looks great for a while, the backlinks that are created to help get those interactions are not necessarily people seeing and interacting with your music.
White hat SEO techniques are ok if you wish to get your website listed at the top of google, however, you need to make sure that people know who they are searching for in the first place. How do people know your name in the beginning?
You would need to make sure your keywords are placed on your site on different pages and your home page for the keywords and titles; you want fans and other people to be able to find you.
Unless we have access to your site to be sure you have the right keywords and page titles and meta tags, it is pointless getting backlinks and likes just to show a number.
The fake likes on social media accounts are exactly that. They often come from click farms or people who will promise you real engagement, however at the end of the day, you cannot guarantee those people are truly interested in your music and will purchase your music and/or merchandise.
We are here to seriously help artists to do it the right way and we are here to work with you.
Should I interact with my posts from you?
Yes. Absolutely. Where ever you have anything going on the web, no matter where it’s from, you should be interacting. You should also be sharing those posts and making the most out of the content. This is extra content for you no matter where it’s from.
Have you done promotion before
Why have you not offered the promotions before to artists
How do I write my own story?
