Global Music Promotion Campaign Distribution from Play MPE could be yours…

And… American Songwriter Song Contest is partnering up with their team to award this year’s winners with music promotion campaign distribution packages! More on the prizes in a moment. 

So what can music promotion distribution from Play MPE do for an artist?

Essentially, artists have a much better chance of being heard by sought after decision makers in the music industry. This is the same platform the majors use to get music all over the globe, so when music is sent via Play MPE, it tells recipients that an artist has done their homework. It’s like putting a gold star on your promotion. These days tastemakers receive music in all manner of ways: various links and attachments – sometimes even physical promo packages. However, the reality is most busy professionals don’t have time to sift through it all, even if in their hearts they wish they could. Play MPE was designed specifically for the music industry to give tastemakers access to everything they need right at their fingertips, which also makes it a lot easier for artists to be discovered.

Play MPE is synonymous with professional music promotion distribution for good reason

Play MPE has been the go-to for music industry professionals for some time now, with the company growing steadily around the world.  Serving over 100 countries, Play MPE’s platform is also available in multiple languages,  streamlining the way the music industry collaborates, on a global scale. Play MPE facilitates campaign distribution for 1000s of record labels, promoters and artists, connecting them to an expansive community of vetted industry decision makers.

How it works

The Play MPE platform is composed of two collaborative applications: Caster and Player. 

Caster enables record labels, promoters and artists to create and distribute music promotion campaigns worldwide. On average 2,400 promotional releases are delivered monthly.

Player (Web, iOS, and Android) is where vetted tastemakers access and discover the latest music and reissues of classic catalog releases. Radio programmers, music supervisors, curators, media and more are the recipients of the releases distributed by Caster. 

So… The Prizes! 

The first place winner of American Songwriter Song Contest will receive a full-service global music promotion distribution package to promote one release (single or album) with a value up to $4,000. A dedicated Play MPE release coordinator will create the release in tandem with the winning artist’s team and will assist in selecting optimal recipient lists for distribution. Oh, and the package includes two additional resends, further marketing support and reporting! It’s one thing to send a release but it’s a whole other thing to see which tastemakers are streaming and downloading your content.
