Newsletter - September 2005
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.
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
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!

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
and use the add songs option. Forgot your log in information? Just
contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll send
it to you.
