How To Get Your Songs On A Radio playlist

As an artist, your dream is to get your music played on the radio because radio stations still control a very large number of listeners and fans even in today’s world where access to music, live streaming, and songs on demand, are as easy as owning a Smartphone.

Getting your song on the airways and securing a spot on a radio playlist might look or sound easy, but in reality, it is not as easy as it sounds, especially for low budget independent artists outside a major record label.

There are basic steps to undertake before you decide to go full blast on your radio promotions and plans, especially if you want to tune into your favorite radio station and hear your music playing on the stereo system.

How to Put Your Songs On Air:;

  • Know Your Contact

Search the website on Google, or get the contact of the DJ, station’s producer or music director, it’s difficult in some cases, nevertheless, go at it the old fashioned way, go there live and simply ask.

  • Know how to get your music on the platform

DJs and stations have a particular format they receive submissions and demos, most prefer digital format. Make researches to find out what the station requires and send the links to your best tracks, not mp3 files, with your blogs or press publications attached.

  • Contact The Right Stations

Don’t go for the biggest and best radio station, because they are highly competitive as thousands of other artists are trying to beat you to it. Go for smaller stations and genre-specific stations, they won’t be swamped with demos like the bigger stations.

What Is an EP?

If you are in the music industry or a huge fan of music, you must have come across the term “EP.” An ‘EP’ is simply “Extended Play,” and it is a record that contains more tracks than a single, but is usually unqualified as an album.

An ‘EP’ is a compilation of songs by an artist, created for promotional use and lies somewhere between a single and an album, this is because, a single is just one track while an album contains about 10 to 12 songs or more, also new projects that haven’t been released yet by the artist.

‘EPs’ are usually one to three, minimum or four to six, maximum and are generally made using original tracks that the artist hasn’t released.

Most artists prefer ‘EPs’ because it is usually the solution for those who can’t afford the studio time necessary to record a full-length album. Singles, on the other hand, aren’t enough to keep the artist alive for long in the hearts of their fans but an ‘EP,’ is the quickest way to grow a fan base and experiment with a new music style.

As a promotional tool, ‘Eps’ are ideal to sell yourself and brand and requires little or less than you would have invested for a full-length album. If you are ready to release your ‘EP’ simply follow these steps;

  • Choose the Right number of required Tracks
  • Choose your unique style
  • Structure and focus your EP Record
  • Create quality record

WHY DO YOU NEED TO MARKET YOUR MUSIC?

You need to market your music else no one will know you exist!

You can have the best songs in the world, or even record the most amazing album, but without proper communication and marketing, no one will hear or listen to it.

Effective marketing can blow or break your music career, so ensure you know how to grow your music.

It is difficult making music and marketing it at the same time. For most artists, that is not a luxury they can afford.

Banking on Record labels to do the leg work for you, isn’t an option anymore as these record labels wouldn’t touch you if you don’t already have a strong fan base and semi-popularity, and how would you get that without promotion?

Even if you decide to use Facebook, Twitter or YouTube and manually add your fans one by one or hope for your core audience to follow you and still pay these platforms, you will sooner or later hit a snag, as paid followers aren’t the same as real followers and will pose a hindrance more than a blessing to you and your brand.

You need to market your music to reach your core audience!

To reach your core audience, you need to find out where your audience hangs out and reach them there real time. Reach a load of targeted people in a short space of time, and get a better reaction and interaction more than the ghost followers the wrong marketing approach will deliver.

Use established platforms and make yourself heard; it could be in the form of community radio channel or station, website, YouTube channel, etc.  The fact that people hear you doesn’t mean they want to hear you, leverage strongly on the tactics employed by this established platforms like CeFlix Tunes, Spotify, Boomplay, iHeart Radio, popular YouTube, social media platforms and build connections and a stronger relationship with your fans because these platforms can get you right in front of your fans where you belong, faster than self-marketing and wrong marketing will.

Remember leveraging on popular platforms and relying on their popularity and expertise is important if you want to stay relevant and build momentum as a musician. Most people read and listen to what they have to say, they are respected and the fastest way to convert their teeming audience to your fans is by leveraging on their successes and tools to make a sound difference with your music.

Getting people to listen to your music is more than an art, it’s science!

There is a formula to this but not many musicians know how to effectively promote their music and market it to the right audience.

STEP 3

Promotion –

Marketing is collaboration, culture, business, and trend. Having a better understanding of your position puts you at an advantage to garner more reach, foster engagement and ensure strong impact.

You need to make researches, find out what triggers algorithms, get attention and get ahead through strong channels and determine which promotional activities will best serve your career.

2.    The Siren

Imagine the sound a convoy or an ambulance makes, now try to imitate that same sound with your voice. Try low then gradually increase your range till you are at the highest note you can possibly go. Once you have mastered singing both high and low notes without stress, then your vocal muscles are in shape and ready to knock out some great beats.

3.    Solfege

Solfege is popularly known as “solfeggio” or “solfa,” is used in music schools to teach music students to sing and hear effectively. It is a system where every note of a scale is given its own syllable.  If you have watched the sound of music, then this should be easy. Try and sing the “Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do” beginning from middle C, sing through the solfege scale starting from up and down while you listen to each pitch.

Try this without any musical instrument, acapella style as this will train your ears too.
