It’s important and often forgotten for artists to remember to stay in touch with club DJ’s and radio DJ’s to promote your content. Horus Music offers a new kind of radio plugging service at a really competitive rate. Traditional, old school radio plugging services are where a plugger would pitch your tracks to the presenters of radio shows, take them out for expensive dinners and hope that they’ll play your tracks, costing you thousands and thousands of pounds with no guarantees of success. With our forward thinking radio plugging service not only are you getting radio plays, you’re enhancing your social media, getting global exposure, gaining promotion in new markets, increasing your streaming figures and getting paid more royalties. All for a fraction of the cost of traditional radio plugging services.
How? Well, once your tracks are accepted you will have a global campaign created online and be set up with your own login and password so you can read all your feedback. The feedback is also posted on Twitter and as they include web players for Spotify and Juno – you’ll earn royalties whenever the DJ’s play your tracks.
SOCIAL MEDIA ASSISTANCE
All of the feedback received from DJ’s is posted on social media so you have ready-made content to retweet to your followers about how music industry tastemakers and influencers are digging your tracks. You can also use these testimonials to include on your website and EPK’s etc.
The format on Twitter gives you the DJ’s Name, the station, the track, the label the DJ’s feedback on the track and a rating out of 10.
Here are a few examples:
The site is fully mobile and so your campaigns can be viewed by DJ’s whilst they’re on the go. The DJ’s hail from all over the world, so to cater to this they have the option to translate the text of your campaign into their own language.
Here’s an example of the feedback from the tastemakers, some of which include links to their own Twitter pages, so you can mention and thank the tastemakers:
YOUR CAMPAIGN & THE TOP 30
The radio plugging works on a chart basis and you’re competing against all the other people that use the service to get their music into the hands of radio DJs. Once you’ve been accepted, your campaign will go live on the system and at first, it will be no1 in the charts. If you get 10/10 for your track you’ll stay top of the charts, the percentage will then change as the feedback comes in and alters your chart position until your release finds its natural position. The Top 30 is the only chart of its kind in the world, that can’t be tampered with as only DJ’s who have logged in can leave feedback and impact the chart position and only once they have will their feedback work the chart. This delivers as honest a Top 30 Chart as possible.
There have been over 8,000+ campaigns that have impacted the charts and clients have been from both the major label and the independents. The service was launched way back in 2003 alongside the first version of the iTunes download.
Here’s an example of one of our client’s campaigns live on the system:
You’ll note in the right-hand corner of the screen you can see the top 30 charts.
