There are many radio promoters out there who will be willing to take your money. They will do anything and tell you, the artist that you rock etc etc. Here are some more things to keep in mind

Faxes: A good promoter should include the faxes, though they are not cheap, as this is the fastest way to get a summary in a single-page of info to the stations, may be with pictures. (more…)

9 in 10 music business professionals are not good. Sorry to say but that is a fact. Promoters for example will take your money and wont do any work for you but will tell you that you are the best and that your music rocks.

Before you hire a radio promoter make sure you ask a few questions so you wont get burned. Making contact: Make sure contacting the promoter is possible on a regular basis. He should be reachable easily when you need them most.

Reports: Report is one important aspect you can find with well-organized promoters. These reports only show how and what is going on with your airplay each week.

Office: Check, if the radio promoter has an office (even a small one), then it is better to hire him.

Assistants: If the promoter is handling more than one genre of music at a time, then assistants are necessary. It will not be possible to call more than 150 stations a week, do reports, faxes, emails and talk to you when calling.

Radio promotion is a gloomy and puzzling region of the musical landscape. Here is a checklist on how to go about selecting a promoter to push your music.
Here are a few things you can consider which will help you with your chance of success. Radio promoter, means an airplay promoter, but not a club or booking promoter. The big concern is if you choose the wrong person to promote your artist and end up with bad results, you can’t just go back. That’s the end for that CD (at those stations). That CD will be “an old project” at the stations, and you can’t go back to them until you make a new release.
