Music Promotion Services: Who is the best?
Updated: Oct 6
There are so many promotion services available, right now. It is really hard to see which service is legit and which service is only bots. In this post, I am going to review some services in a high price points and some lower price points.
I will start with the professional services. One of the best and most affordable promotion services is Daimoon Media. They offer Spotify, SoundCloud and Youtube promotion by submitting your song to playlists and reposts to get exposure. Their promotion starts at 39.99, so it is also affordable for small budgets. You can upgrade the promotion for more exposure for a higher price. This is a really nice and legit promotion.
The second service I want to talk about is Omari MC. This promotion is legit and affordable. Omari MC was founded by Nathaniel Moore. He built a network with fans and music influencers and is using that network for promotion. He is also really transparant about his business and I think his company is a really good choice for music promotion.
Playlist Push is a company that focuses on Spotify streams. They also offer YouTube promotion, but Spotify has their main focus. They work with a lot of playlist curators to promote indie music. They have an audience of 25 million people and are able to get your song some real exposure. You need to start a campaign to submit your music to playlists. Their campaigns are starting below $250 and you can always upgrade to a higher budget. If you are looking for Spotify promotion, this is one of the best ways!
The Best Professional Services
If you are looking for the best professional services, be prepared to invest a lot of money. Planetary Group and Starlight PR are examples of companies that work with major artists, but also offer packages for indie artists.
Planetary Group offers promo packages for small and big artists. You need to contact them for pricing. Starlight PR offers an indie package. This package is $479, but zeven blog placements, a press release and an interview is included. This is definitely worth it.
Other paid services
Besides these three services, there are way too much other legit promotion services to write about. But keep in mind, there are also a lot of services that use bots or people that are not really interested in your music. When you distribute music, you actually want to gain fans and people who appreciate your money. Before you purchase a promotion, look at reviews and interactions from listeners. It gives a lot of clarity about the engagement.
There is also a chance that you break the terms of service with purchasing a non-official promotion. That gives a bad reputation and it definitely is not what you want, when you are serious about building a career. Promotion can really help with growing your career, so see music promotion as an investment. But, always pick a good agency to guide you and one that has results.
