Youtube Video Promotion
Promote your Youtube video using safe, Google approved tacticsWith many new YouTube safeguards and guidelines in place, it has now become increasingly more difficult for a new music video to secure impressive view numbers and go viral, unless you utilize and work directly through the various Google channels of advertising.
Highly targeted and affordableAn effective YouTube campaign is a nuanced, highly strategic undertaking that takes in
consideration numerous variables including musical genre, like minded artists and fans, demographics, day of the week and regional targeting.
Because a large percentage of the cost of the campaign will be spent
with Google directly, it’s imperative that we shoot for our “biggest
bang for our buck ” I.E. “lowest cost per click “.
Personalized to your needsAlong with inquiring from you what you feel your band or artist’s “target
audience” is, we would also be inquiring from you what bands and
artists you feel most of a musical kindred spirit with, what tags would
be appropriate for this campaign, what countries and territories would
we be most likely to encounter new fans and the best thumbnail for
Real engagement from real peopleWe are a huge proponent of generating real comments from real
people, as well as increasing the “likes” for the video dramatically. We want to have the entire presentation look as though
there is nothing but an organic embracing of the music video happening, with no hints of any sort of extra investments being implemented.
Work with a highly selective marketer.Our music video promotion campaigns are for any independent artists or bands looking to increase exposure for themselves and their latest video clip. We are fearless when it comes to promoting cliché-defying artists outside the mainstream, while always remaining highly selective in the projects we promote. Our constant goal is to supply our programmers and
internet partners with the videos their viewers really want to see.
Get promoted to terrestrial television and online video outletsWe have established and
maintained a solid, ever growing network of contacts throughout the
terrestrial television and online music video programming world, and we’re continually updating the most comprehensive database anywhere of music video exposure opportunities, which cut across all stylistic and geographic borders.

regional video shows (California Music Channel, JBTV etc.), retail video pools (outlets that provide in-store music video programming to
retailers, fitness centers, shopping malls, nightlife locations, etc.),
video-on-demand providers (Havoc TV, Music Choice), mobile phones and tablets, nightclubs and numerous high profile Internet outlets and popular blogs.
Social media promotionThis comprehensive promotional push is very helpful to your overall marketing plan to increase exposure, and the social media
awareness we generate for you via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and
YouTube will create total saturation, helping dramatically in securing
the maximum amount of awareness and exposure possible for your new music video.
Attention to detailThere’s a lot of up front attention to detail involved in a successful
music video campaign (closed captioning, digital delivery, correct
labeling, DMDS (Digital Music Delivery Service), submission forms,
social media setup etc.), but rest assured that we will take all the
necessary precautions to assure you that your new video arrives to all
of our programming outlets and internet partners ready for immediate programming.

accompanies each video pitch. This is where we, as your video promoter, argue the case of why your video is worthy of the programmer’s
The personal touchWe maintain very friendly
relations with all the important point people and decision makers at the video programming outlets and high profile internet outlets, but never take for granted the many video programmers and programming
opportunities in all the remote corners of the music video community, including numerous secondary and tertiary markets throughout the
country. We also pitch your video to many smaller, curated websites and
blogs. We also set up video interviews and on air performances when our clients go on tour or play shows, as well as encourage our clients to
