RadioIndy.com Artist Newsletter - September 2005

Every now and again we give you an update on what's happing on RadioIndy.com, special opportunities for our Gold Artists, and request special music from you.  We plan to do this more regularly in the coming months than we have in the past.  So here's our latest newsletter.

What has RadioIndy.com been up to lately?
RadioIndy.com provides bands/artists the opportunity to be heard by new listeners and industry pros.  Unlike other indie music sites, we focus on identifying and categorizing the best indie music and presenting it to new listeners on RadioIndy.com, and on our growing network of web sites who use our Hyperlink Music StationsTM to enhance their web site and customer e-mails.  Although we don't pay a royalty to bands for the plays, our music network gives bands exposure to new listeners who can learn more about the band on RadioIndy.com.  This allows RadioIndy.com and our network web sites to legally, inexpensively, and easily include great music, and gives bands exposure to new listeners who would have never heard their music otherwise.  It's a win-win!

Holiday music wanted!
In the coming weeks we will be running major ad campaigns promoting our holiday music stream.  If you have good, original holiday songs or cover versions of classic holiday songs whose copyrights have expired, that are not yet uploaded to RadioIndy.com, and if you would like exposure to new listeners, please upload your holiday songs to your RadioIndy.com account. 

We also are looking for funny songs, scary songs, kids songs, and songs with a tropical theme/feel.  If you are a Gold Artist and have reached your maximum of 3 free songs, just e-mail us a request to upload holiday song(s) and we will allow you to add more songs.  Don't have an original holiday song yet?  There's still time to write and record one, and upload it to your RadioIndy.com account.   Don't miss this great opportunity to find new fans for your music, upload your holiday music today.

RadioIndy.com artists continue to impress industry pro Dale Kawashima.
RadioIndy.com continues to find new ways to get its Gold Artist music heard by industry pros.  We teamed up with long time industry pro Dale Kawashima to get Dale's attention on our Gold Artist music.  As a result, several RadioIndy.com artists have received awards on Dale's web sites singeruniverse.com or songwriteruniverse.com (SEE RIGHT-HAND COLUMN) in the past few months.  We'd like to congratulate all these Radioindy GOLD Artists!

Want Dale to check out your music?  If you sign up as a paying subscribing Gold Artist (see article below) within the next week, we will submit one of your songs into Dale's monthly best songwriting or singer contest, to assure you Dale listens to your music, at no cost to you ($12 value)!

Tip of the month - Use your own Hyperlink Music StationTM to enhance your web site and e-mail for free!
Want a custom music station of only your music?  Just contact us (support@radioindy.com) and we will create a custom station of your music.  By adding a simple hyperlink to your web site or e-mail your visitors can listen to all of your RadioIndy.com songs in one station.  Add this hyperlink as part of your e-mail signature so any time you send an e-mail, your reader can simply click a link in your e-mail and automatically listen to your artist.  Want to support other RadioIndy.com artists as well?  Add one of our Hyperlink Music StationsTM that includes your music and the music of other RadioIndy.com Gold Artists to your web site.  By working together we are changing the way that new music gets to listeners.  Contact us (support@radioindy.com) for more information.

Get your music onto RadioIndy.com and get your music heard?
Your music is excellent, but to get large numbers of fans you need to maximize your exposure to new listeners who enjoy your genre of music.  This is precisely the formula of big labels, who find talented artists and promote them to huge numbers of fans.  Therefore, every month we bring over 1000 new listeners to check out our pre-screened Gold Artist music stations, and we have a growing network of affiliate web sites that include our Gold Artist music. 
We are pleased to see our website traffic continue to surge.  Over the last month or so, we averaged 17,000 to 22,000 page view per day!  Plus, RadioIndy.com Gold Artist status gives your music a quality seal of approval to new listeners and industry pros.   So if you have not yet uploaded music for us to check out, don't wait any longer. Just log onto your RadioIndy.com account (Click Here) and use the add songs option.  Forgot your log in information?  Just contact us at support@radioindy.com, and we'll send it to you.
