Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any examples I can use for inspiration?
Yes! Every template that we have comes with relevant press release examples that you can use to see how other singers, musicians, and record labels are doing it. We recommend that you take a look at those sample press releases but avoid copying/pasting their press release format. Respect other people’s work as you’d want other people to respect your work.
Is this press release SEO-friendly?
As a creator or record label, you shouldn’t worry about your press releases being friendly for search engines like Google. A good press release should communicate a clear message that could be used from media outlets as a reference. Thus, don’t care about SEO and focus on creating good music and communicating that as well as possible to the public.
Do I also have to promote my press release?
We know that your music is the most important thing for you. However, if we’re being honest, without good promotion, your music won’t reach your audience. After creating your press release, you also have to promote it to music media outlets, social media like Instagram, music influencers, niche sites, as well as use sites like Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Spotify, and Pitchfork to further amplify your efforts.
