Question: I still don't understand how "Promoter Box" works?
Answer: Ok, let's do a quick overview! Since 1996,
independent record label 3000 Records has been promoting music.
Promoter Box (organized by 3000 Records) is an exciting new project
designed to distribute promotional copies of your song(s) to music
industry contacts and music fans. The music is sent using a "zip
file" (AlbumZip). The AlbumZip allows for people to download a bunch of songs at one time to their computer,
phone, or MP3 player. Your song will be included in our monthly
promotion which will include a variety of songs for new listeners to discover! The music is distributed online through
email subscribers including on-the-air radio stations, online radio,
music podcasts, music fans, and more, plus promoted through social networking
sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. This is also submitted to
search engines, directories, blogs, and bookmarking sites. The result is your
music discovered by interested Music Fans, and Music Industry Contacts throughout the web, including radio DJs,
other places like magazines,
and interested record labels.
Question: Can I
also promote this to my current Fan Base?
Answer: Yes! We also make an effort utilize the connections of each
participating Musician and Band. When you or another Musician or
Band uses a Promoter Box banner, text
link, or shares printed material (Ex: flyers, download cards, etc.) you will be part of a
bigger picture. Everyone rises up, when everyone gets involved! We
want you to be empowered as we do our part to promote your music to
the Music Industry and new Listeners.
Note: Musicians and
Bands who participate get our "DIY" Kit for promoting with
banners, text links, or even print their own flyers and download
cards to help get the word out.
