The days of meticulously crafting blog promo emails to send off into the void of the interwebs just may be coming to an end. A new tool for music bloggers, artists, and the like surfaced in late 2015 and is starting to gain some serious traction. SubmitHub.com is the latest brainchild from Indieshuffle’s founder and president, Jason Grishkoff. The new website/app is designed to streamline the submission process of getting your music into the hands of bloggers.
SubmitHub allows you to filter all the blogs in their directory by genre, where you can then hand pick which ones you want to send your music to. You then fill out a quick form including your artist name, song title, a link to your track, and an email you can be reached at. It’s really that simple. The great thing about the selection process, is that they tell you how likely the blog is to respond to your submission. That means no more refreshing your inbox hoping for a reply to magically appear.
You’re able to submit your songs using ‘credits’ (one credit = one submission), and the free version gives you two standard credits every two hours, which definitely does the job for up and coming producers and artists. However, should you choose to buy premium credits at a dollar a piece (USD), you get a lot more benefits. Premium credits ensure you get a response within 48 hours, they filter your submission to the top, they require bloggers to listen to your track for at least 20 seconds before making a decision, and should they decline your track, they give you a minimum of 10 words of feedback. Oh, and you can submit to as many blogs as you can pay for with just one submission.
Music bloggers receive hundreds of emails every day and spend hours deep inside their inbox with no end in sight. Now they can collect all their submissions in one place where they can easily review them, with an added incentive of a nice cheque from Grishkoff for doing so. SubmitHub really seems to be picking up speed, with more and more blogs and YouTube channels signing up everyday. There are currently 6,400+ users and over 32,000 tracks have already submitted. You might want to get on board – this could be exactly what you need to get your music heard.
