My new Promo Strategy for ALL posted songs
This is Douglas MacKenzie writing from my studio in Oshawa ON. After some 2 years on N1M and aggressively Recommending other's songs from around the world on a daily basis, trying to garner enuf $BC credits to do National or if lucky, a Global Artist Spotlight once or twice a week, I have had to re-think my weekly Promo strategy. This is it... Please check out all my posted songs & give them a Listen, a Like & a Share, if so inclined. I don't think it is cool that N1M has blocked the "$BC value field" for us 'free' Subscribers, and turned it into "Earn ?" - how are we to plan a promo strategy & execute with any hope of success if we don't know what a Recommend will do for our $BC credits balance? BTW, it's hardly free - what is 20 hours of my time worth every week?!? Also, my song went from 10th to 3rd last week on the Global Folk Rock chart, with a paltry 200 plays overnight when the charts were reset, so worldwide plays must be down for everyone with this unfair 'revision' in place. The graphics are certainly improved, but holding a Recommend offer in 'Pending for approval' for 6-7 hours from a tiny edit in value or the title, in the middle of Ratings Night so no-one CAN recommend it is also not cool. So I am writing this, asking for folks to check out all my posted songs, and maybe go over to MySpace, ReverbNation, YouTube, or your preferred streaming & D/L platforms where 'More Love to Begin' (the album) resides, as well as a lot more, such as videos, live performances, & studio recordings that were used as demos to get me to the point of being able to record. Listen, watch, Share & Subscribe if you wish. There are 7 originals on 'More Love to Begin', and the message in the featured song, my acoustic arrangement & cover of the Weber Brothers' 'I Come From the Future' is one for the ages, and especially these times we are currently in. PLEASE, all take care, ensure we get thru this, and look forward to live shows & concerts once again, hopefully in the near future. Doug.
