Streaming Campaigns

We’ll market your songs to the masses utilizing our expertise in streaming platforms like Spotify, SoundCloud, Tidal, iTunes, YouTube, and Triller. there are two number to pay attention to here: the ad spend that is paid to platforms and the amount you pay us to manage campaigns for you. Rates vary per project.

We connect with social media influencers and work with them to develop visual content for sharing: the influencer choreographs a dance to your song, the post is seen by thousands, and the audience exposed to your music expands.
