Regardless of the type of service we purchase, we want results. Right? Well, that is no different when purchasing radio promotions. Well, the good news is A-Sides Radio Promotion has been getting just that … great results.
We just finished pitching this year’s Christmas singles to radio and received more than 100 station adds within the first day! Considering we are pitching songs from independent artists and groups, this is great. Out of the 115 stations that added within the first day, 109 were terrestrial stations (primarily FM) within the United States. The other 9 station adds were either international stations, networks or internet stations.
Think about this for a second. It has been said that even with the smallest of stations, a song can be heard by more than 2,500 people when it is played one time by one of these stations. Imagine 100 terrestrial radio stations adding a song and then that song being heard by well over a quarter of a million people. And that is if each of those stations play that song only one time each! WOW! That alone can stagger the mind. This is a quarter of a million potential new fans. Think of the possibilities. When you capitalize on this, it creates more music sales and gigs. More on that later in future articles.
Just earlier this year, we did a survey with music buyers and listeners. Out of everyone that took that survey, 86% listen to the radio while the rest only listen to CD’s, with an iPod, or other digital device. That is a lot of people still listening to radio. Many artists seem concerned that they will get on too many internet stations and not enough terrestrial stations. But, check this out. Out of those who listen to the radio, 67% indicated that they listen to radio on the internet. So, I wouldn’t discount the value of internet airplay either. I’ll share more results from the survey in future articles.
