Advice and tips

Including a download link to a high quality mp3, band photo and artwork using a site like HighTail.
Making your music easy for bloggers to preview before deciding to download is a great move.

Social Media should be checked

Bloggers have a firm grasp on the importance of online presence and utilize multiple platforms to communicate such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram

Subject Lines

The best number of characters in a subject line is typically considered to be between 20 and 35. Keep it personal, simple and descriptive.

Letting the recipient immediately know why you are emailing is key. Avoid the term “Press release”, ALL CAPS and jargon in the subject line. Most bloggers said they delete any emails that have “Press Release” in the subject line. All caps and industry jargon are considered annoying.

Lay off when it comes to the punctuation. It doesn’t help.

Submission guidelines must be followed

It is also another way for a blogger to test if you have taken the time to read their blog or not. Some blogs have strict music submission guidelines. Take this into account.

No one likes a pest

Don’t send more than two emails. Along the same lines as “keep it short and sweet,” when you’re trying to get people to write and talk about your music, limit yourself to two emails: an email with links and a follow-up email, sent at a later date. You’re not going to get a “yes” or “no” right away, so you need to be patient.

Once you have a blog post written about your music, don’t forget to be polite and to thank the blogger for their time.

Always research

Use the link, go their website and read some of their posts, preferably the last few. You may just discover a new blog to follow. Remember that you are asking the blogger to become your new fan. Some are against this but a follow for a follow may help you out.

It may sound obvious but read the descriptions that are included in the Music Blog Directory and focus your time and energy on blogs that fit your style of music.

Spam is a no go. Avoid it.

Running a subject lines and the body of your email through a spam checker is a smart move. So before sending do this to make sure they won’t get flagged on the other end. Some words get flagged by email spam filters. Example of some words would be “free, opportunity, hot”, but there are some other words that may cause problems too.

There are a lot of free spam checkers out there that can help you de-spam your email. Like:

Lyris Content Checker for Email http://lyris.com/us-en/contentchecker

Contactology’s Email Spam Checker http://info.contactology.com/check-mqs

Once again make sure to not bulk or mass emailing bloggers as many of them have a filter to block mass emails.

Keep it short and get to the point

Some Bloggers receive hundreds and hundreds of emails a day. This means you may not receive a response on your first try. Chances are they have not even read your email. Don’t overwhelm them with long snake road emails.

Bloggers will simply tune out if you don’t get to the point quickly. If they want to know more, they will ask.

Personalised emails are always better

One of the worst mistakes to make is to send a generic email around to a list of bloggers

Please don’t mass email blogs! Take the time to craft each individual email, address them by name, include a few personalized details you’ve learned through your research or one great move is to casually bring up a post of theirs that you actually read and enjoyed.

You are asking the blogger to take the time to listen to your music and hopefully write a review. So in return you must take the time to personally email each blogger. This is important and it’s why we included this information in The Music Blog Directory.
