How to Get Your Song Played on Radio
Radio, wow! When you give your product, you want to make sure that you focus on getting it played on the radio. Now, in my opinion, I believe packaging is very important. It’s very crucial to your project. Make sure that the sound quality is well done. The production, as a radio announcer being in the business for over 25 years myself, when I will see the new project in the mail one of the first things I look at is the packaging. Make sure the artwork pops out at you. Make sure it’s colorful. Make sure it’s very warm and it’s delightful and make sure that the production of the artwork is well done.
One of the next things that I look for would be the barcode. Is there a barcode on the back of your product? The barcode is very important. That shows that you’re registered and that the information of this property is put together.
The third thing I look for before I play something on the radio would be where did it come from? What’s the name of the label? Who is the artist? Is it someone known? Is this someone unknown? Do I need to put it in a heavy rotation, light rotation or medium rotation?
After I open the product up, then I focus on the music and message in the music. Does this minister to me? Does this minister to my listeners? Now I understand that just because you made the CD it doesn’t mean that everyone wants to listen to it and just because you have a product out doesn’t mean that it has to be played on the radio. So, you have to come with creative ways to get it played on the radio such as the tracking. Get someone who can track your product or get someone who does tracking promotions, marketing, internet marketing. There are several copies out there that internet market particular projects out there for you. So make sure you take your time, do all your research and do proper planning to get your product played on the radio.
