    Hey!

    I have been doing quite successful campaigns for quite a lot of artists and song. Now I would like to invite your suggestions as to how you would have promoted songs and other tricks for getting a song / artist famous.

    I have promoted one specific song through various big bloggers where I have written them asking to have it promoted as it is a good song. I have also "pushed" the YT views by writing about it on targetted forums...trying to get as much real traffic as possible etc.

    It was ranked at it's best at 30th position on Itunes Sweden, this is the aspect I need to improve on aswell as getting spotify streams. We have done quite a lot of successful promotions where we have had the songs go viral, but then we always need a bigger budget. We have also pushed this specific song through a lot of horse forums (video has a lot of horses in it) and the girls/ladies seem to love this song and we instantly see that people start sharing it through facebook. Right now its being played around 3K times / day on spotify and that is starting from zero 2 week ago.

    I have also used some amf and ylh to have it pushed out and retweeted but that does not really give any conversions in streams.

    Whoever cracks the spotify stream question and itunes rank system can probably make a lot of money. I have come quite far but I want to have your suggestions. Id love to work with you on finding a method so if you are a programmer or a marketer that can think of a system I am open to talk to you and listen and also invest in a system that could potentially work and be offered to other marketers here on BHW.

    I was thinking about a method with VCC:s but I am yet to find a good VCC seller that can create VCC:s with different names.

    Any suggestions are welcome! :)

    Does it convert into streams / money in some way?

    Could you elaborate what you mean with good luck promoting your band?
