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.
In the past, when promoters reviewed your Reverb Press Kit they could listen to all your songs, but not every promoter asked for artists to submit a specific song. We listened to your feedback, and we understand that many of you make music that spans genres and styles. With this latest change, your submissions can reflect that diversity, and give you control over putting your most relevant song first.
On the submissions page, you’ll now see a drop-down menu labeled Song For Consideration — click that menu to choose what your lead song will be.
So the next time you are submitting to an opportunity that’s looking for an upbeat rock song, you don’t have to worry that your acoustic single will be heard first. Promoters will still have access to all of the songs in your RPK, but this will give you control over each submission you make.
Shachar Gilad, CEO of SoundBetter and ReverbNation Promoter, says that these new changes will provide great benefits to both promoters and artists.
“These updates will make it much easier for us to hear exactly what the artist wants us to. Each opportunity is different, and if I were an artist, I’d want to send the song that is the best fit for that opportunity, to increase the odds of getting chosen.” – Shachar Gilad
We want you to be able to put your best foot forward, and we hope this new change will bring you one step closer to where you want to be.
