How to Email Music Blogs & Promoters – My 5 Tips

Getting Your Music Heard

Are you feeling frustrated after sending out countless emails to blogs and promoters with no response? In this post, I’m sharing 5 email tips that have worked for me, drawing from my experience on both sides of the pitch.

1. Keep it Short and Sweet

Imagine getting a massive block of text in your inbox. Overwhelming, right? People are busy, and lengthy emails make them feel like they’re on a mailing list. Keep your message concise and to the point. Think of it like a quick chat with a friend online – get straight to the point.

2. Personalize Every Email

This might sound time-consuming, but ditch the copy-paste approach! Research each recipient. Learn their name, the kind of music they feature, and why you’d be a good fit.

Bonus Tip: Even if they don’t mention it, politely ask where to send your press kit (if needed). But be mindful – if they clearly state their submission process on their website, don’t ask!

3. Formatting Matters

Don’t mix fonts! Inconsistent formatting screams “copied and pasted,” making it seem like you’re not genuinely reaching out. Proofread carefully and consider having a friend review your email for a fresh perspective.

4. Build Relationships

Even if you don’t get featured this time, build rapport! Follow them on social media and engage with their content. It’s all about building connections.

Analogy Alert! Imagine awkwardly cold-calling someone to promote your music. Now, imagine following up with someone you know – a much better approach, right?

5. The Power of the Follow-Up

Let’s face it, people are busy and emails get lost. A polite follow-up shows genuine interest and reminds them of your message.

Bonus Tip: If their contact information is available, consider a follow-up call. It adds a personal touch and allows you to express your enthusiasm (without emojis!).

There you have it! By following these email tips, you’ll increase your chances of getting noticed and getting your music heard.
