THE INDIE PR BUNDLE
“Because paying for PR is soooo 2003, Becky.”
STORY TIME: Something happened recently. I finished an incredibly badass record with one of my favorite artists I’ve ever worked with. Synthpop galoreee. Arpeggiators everywhere. Vocal Samples. THE WORKS. It was done. Songs were mastered. Backing tracks for the live shows / upcoming tour were made. Now comes… the release.
It went like this:
I was waiting. They were waiting. I would wait more… they would wait more… and then - after 4 months. I was done waiting, dude. What daaaa fuckkkk was going on?
I had to call them up. This was getting ridiculous. When’s the song coming out?! It’s clearly FIRE.
THE PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR THE MUSIC!
Standing there in my studio, looking at the reflection of my nervous face on the monitor… I pressed dial. Seconds felt like hours - I realized. “Holy shit. I am my Jewish mother’s son… I am calling them - to nag?! Is this me?! Who AM —-”
Artist: “….Hhhheeeeeeyyyy Mark!”
Me: “YO!! What’s the hold up? When’s it dropping? You ok?”
Artist: “Mark - I don’t know what the hellllll to do. I don’t want to put out the song yet… I’m getting my release strategy together… but I just feel so fucking lost. This song sounds incredible, the best we’ve ever made. But I don’t want to put it out for nobody to listen to it! How the hell do I get on blogs?! How do I get it in playlists? I FEEL LIKE A LOSERRRR DUDEEEE!”
Me: “Ohhh. That’s all it is? OK. BRB.”
THE INDIE PR BUNDLE is literally everything you need to run a badass PR Campaign after you’re done with your song’s production.
It is included complimentary to every artist I produce, sent when we begin working together. (We discuss additional marketing strategy and tactics throughout the production process.)
Basically, if you’re not ready to hire a PR Agent, or you’re just the type to hustle yourself / have a “learn to fish” mentality like me. Here is the know how, industry insight, and contact information to get you where you want to, and should be.
I believe in a strong music industry filled with competent, pro-active independent artists. It’s literally my mission to help artists get to the point that they see themselves stepping to.
To me that is what a producer does in 2019.
The INDIE PR BUNDLE consists of contact information for over 6,000 Music Journalists, Playlisters, and Corporate Contacts.
It also includes my free (always will be free) 30-Page Book I wrote called “RELEASE STRATEGY” covering all the best practices, and step-by-step approach to running your own PR Campaign.
FREE FOR EVERYONE:
RELEASE STRATEGY is the flagship 30-Page ebook I wrote.
After talking to accomplished PR agents, label reps, artists touring internationally, artists I’ve toured with, and other industry professionals I know - I spent a shit ton of time organizing all of these processes and to-dos into a simple, incredibly detailed, and effective resource containing the best practices to running a proper PR Campaign. This in turn will give you real, no bull-shit insight to get your songs into Publications, Playlists, and more. The book is divided into 3 sections.
Mentality, What You Need, and The Playbook.
***FREE FOR EVERYONE***
PROVIDED COMPLIMENTARY TO ARTISTS I Produce,
*And available for purchase to any artist I am not currently working with:*
BLOG CONTACTS is exactly that.
It’s a music journalist database. Each journalist has their publication, social handles, e-mail, website, location, genre, preferred way of pitching to them, First & Last name, position at publication, anything you could think of (that is not inherently creepy for them.) In an organized Excel File so you can scroll through and study up - or upload into a mailing list software to blast out.
I’ve compiled over 4,000 contacts - pretty damn impressive I KNOW. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
This is a playlist directory covering much of Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, etc. Majority independent playlists, with a few direct to Spotify Official Playlist submission protocols.
Streaming is an ever changing world, but I (and my team) have put the time aside (literally booked out days) to update these lists every 3-6 months depending on the landscape of the streaming world. Giving artists I work with the best possible shot to land on these playlists is crucial. So, we put in the work to make sure they’re taken care of.
Quite literally, everyone at Spotify Corporate. WUHPISH!!!
APPLE MUSIC DATABASE
Quite literally, everyone at Apple Music Corporate. WAHPLOOSHH!!!
AMAZON MUSIC DATABASE
Quite literally, everyone at Amazon Music Corporate. WAHPLISHPLASH!!! (what sound was that?!)
SO YEAH, SOUNDS LEGIT RIGHT?
That’s ‘cuz it is. I’ll give you some quotes from some of my favorite artists that I work with who’ve used all of this:
“It works.” - Drake Margolnick of Flagship (Bright Antenna)
“It really works.” - Lute (Dreamville)
“It really really works.” - Dominique
“It really really really fuckin’ works.” - King Klio
***more proof that this shit works.***
My dear dawg, DJ Snyder saved $1000's of dollars with this. He has accumulated over 1 million streams from RELEASE STRATEGY + INDIE PR BUNDLE, and his efforts, resulting in a 10x return on his investment from mechanical royalties (not including the leverage he has now to charge higher for shows.) He additionally will have an even higher return in the long term, as he no longer has to hire out for his PR Campaigns.
(*For legal reasons - results vary, this dude works his ass off.. but this is just 1 of many examples of badass results from the INDIE PR BUNDLE.)
I DID ALL THE “GRUNT WORK” SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO…
Yep. You read that right.
I scavenged the net, paid off people in high places, and did terribly-dirty-awful-things-not-illegal-things-sold-my-bo~…soul to get these contacts for the artists I work for. That’s how much I give a shit about the artists I produce and develop.
6,000 contacts, many of whom are easily accessible, with an organized Release Strategy and Timeline to make sure their next release didn’t have the dreaded “<1,000” sign on Spotify.
Since releasing this in December of 2018, artists that have received this bundle have had their music played on Triple J Australia, write-ups in Earmilk and Billboard, MTV Italia, and have garnered much more intrinsic value to lure more fans to shows.
Overall, from everyone who has downloaded the Release Strategy ebook (free), along with my artists who had the full INDIE PR BUNDLE, there have been many millions of streams, and many more successful campaigns - for a lower investment.
IT’S BONUS TIME, BAYBEY.
5-PART INSIGHT SERIES:
Learn how to craft a sexy-ass story, write killin’ copy, identify who your fans are, and implement a strategy that I call ‘HOLY FUCK WE GOT FANS, BABY.” and an additional bonus strategy called “PROVED YA WRONG, DAD!”
Ultimately, I want every artist (both that I work with, and those that I don’t work with) to be well equipped and achieve their goals, from songwriting, to production, to marketing, to personal life - that’s simply all I give a shit about. (I mean, it’s really borderline obsession. My friends make fun of me constantly for having literally no hobbies.)
Furthermore, I want everyone in this industry to only be held back by their musicianship and artistry. There should be no reason at all why any of this knowledge should ever be a secret. Transparency is v’dope. And that is the world I want artists to live in one day.
Complete independence, and ability to build their own career, on their own terms.
