NEW FEATURE: Optimize Your Online Press Kit

You know the old saying, “you never get a second chance to make a good first impression?” It’s especially true for musicians trying to get heard. It’s why we’re always encouraging you to use great photos and album artwork and constantly perfect your craft. And it’s why we’ve added the Song for Consideration feature to the opportunity submission process.

We’ve just made it easier to select the perfect song to submit to each new ReverbNation opportunity. Increase your odds of being chosen for tours, festivals, radio play, and more by selecting the best song for each opportunity submission. The “Song for Consideration” will be the first one promoters hear, so you can make it count.

Are Photography and Cover Art Important for Musicians?

Tina V, ReverbNation Artist Since 2010As musicians, you spend most of your time writing and performing music that you hope will set you apart from the rest. Sometimes, you spend so much time focusing on music, that other important pieces that can help you get discovered are forgotten. One of the most important – and often forgotten – elements of your band’s presence is how you present yourself visually. [Tweet this]

You might already know that at ReverbNation, we provide opportunities for artists to play festivals, get featured in magazines, get airplay on radio and more. We work directly with promoters to bring these opportunities to you, the artist, and after you submit to the opportunities, the promoters select the best fit for the winner. A few months ago, we conducted a survey of 2,000 artists to find out how they think the opportunities process works.
