Do you want to make sure you deliver results to your artists?

The Deal:

When artists are investing in your services, and/or you are pouring out time and energy trying to get them to the next level, having the option of major coverage can bring peace of mind.

Our team has cultivated relationships for over two decades to a point where we can get your music placed in top publications. Being a music blog ourselves, and also being that we are located in Los Angeles where the scene is happening, we understand that our contacts need sustainability with their contributors, editors, team and overall business – so we have come up with an agreement with them where they dedicate openings to our team, which does require a fee.

The Deal:

We have contracts in place for guaranteed placements to well-known, influential publications. Some of them take our write-up and payment directly, while some bigger publications require a pitching process before-hand.

In rare circumstances, once we send the write-up/payment over, a publication may exercise their right to discretion and decide that the music is not the best fit for their site goals. If this happens, we will refund you or replace with a publication of equal or higher value. Either way, we’ll know around a week after the order whether or not it was placed.

Ultimately, these major publications trust our judgement and will lean towards placement unless it is just not suitable at all for their platform. We are trusting you as representatives of the artists that their music is good quality and fits the genre of the sites!

Rising Artists has been such an absolute joy to work with. Their distinguished voice in this industry has highlighted the presence and discovery of the brightest new and prominent artists. With a distinct decorum and eye for talent, Rising Artists establishes a platform comprised of diligence, taste, and individuality.

How does it work?

Reach out to us via the form below letting us know the placements you wish to order. We will get back to you with the next steps and an order intake/payment form.

Your clients do not have to know that it is done through Rising Artists – we will simply deliver your final publication links and you can get those to your clients. 

These publications all have great DA (Domain Authority) and influence.

If you are receiving payments from your client already, this can come from a portion of that payment, or you can discuss openly with your client if you wish for them to pay on their end.

Depending on your budget, you can opt to have individualized publications, or you can group them together. We have pre-made packages and custom packages. Let us know in your contact form what you are interested in packaging and we could see what discount would be possible.

Some publications at the higher end do require an extra pitching process from us about the artist, music, and project from to land placement – for these ones, we would not ask for payment until we know if it was accepted. We will always let you know the results.

With all of these press placements, we provide an SEO-optimized 600+ word article telling your narrative and drawing attention to your project. 

Benefits:

Not only do you drive listeners/readers to your artist’s track(s) or music video, but the keywords and links used on such a good domain authority site help build their online presence.

In addition to helping SEO, these publications have influence and verification, especially since we offer for them to stay published permanently. You can use these publications as leverage to build your artist’s brand – to be able to say they’ve been featured on these sites helps build credibility to labels, audiences, and any kind of pitching/EPK.

Gaining such reputable placements can also build credibility to your own company and brand. 

About Our Press Service:

Instead of traditional pitching with unknown outcomes, we have worked with our own industry contacts, as well as our pr team’s network to be sure we provide tangible results for dollars spent.

Being a blog ourselves with high standards, we have carefully found our team, made deals, and secured contracts with top quality publications. 

Our team has years of experience working with indie as well as major labels and artists, having had clients such as Rita Ora, Rihanna, 50 Cent, and Yelawolf. 

Our major publications all have great domain authority, and the more major/higher domain authority options are priced accordingly.

Publicists/managers/labels get to choose what they want to make happen and allocate their budget accordingly. We are after all here to support emerging artists and drive up an impact onto their growing careers.

F.A.Q.

First you fill out the contact form and specify exactly what individual or packaged major press items you’d want.

Then once we go over everything, we’ll send you next steps and an order intake/payment form.

We will need your artist’s bio or some type of write up about them, as well as their socials.

We ask you to describe their sound and explain what the release is about.

We ask how the music was produced.

We also ask for a high resolution photo.

This can only be done post-release to draw attention to your artist’s track/video.

Embeds:

Part of the reason we stick to after the release is because embeds are only possible post-release, and we want to drive traffic to your project on its platform (such as a Spotify track or YouTube video). Most of our major press items can do embeds, but it depends on the publication’s format.

Regular Order Process: For most publication orders, we collect order info/payment, create a 600+ word SEO optimized article, and send it over to each of your desired publication(s). The article is spun with different wording for each publication. After we send it over, it is usually guaranteed placement with the deals we have made.

That being said, it is possible that the publications may on occasion exercise their discretion and decide that your music is not the best fit. This is a more rare circumstance, however we would know within a week of sending it over whether or not it was placed. If for some reason it did not make the cut, then we can refund you for that major publication, or you can order another one of equal or higher value.

Extra Pitching Process: There are certain bigger publications that require an extra pitching process on their end, such as for Lyrical Lemonade, Wonderland, and XXL. These would require approval on the publication’s end before receiving payment –  we will get back to you either way with the response.

First we reply to your initial contact form (which is as soon as we can get to it but usually within a few days). Then once we have sorted out any details, we send over your order/payment form.

Upon receiving your form, we may take a few days processing time to send out any needed materials.

If it is a regular process, once we send over the placement, the turnaround time is up to one week.

For the publications that require an extra pitching process (Lyrical Lemonade, Wonderland, XXL), the turnaround time could be up to a few weeks.

So all in all the process could take a few days to a few weeks depending on the publication(s).

For major press placements, we offer that it is permanent. If for example, the blog a year from now removes the article for some reason, they have that choice and (for the major placements only) we always recover the article for free or provide a new blog at the same cost. This doesn’t usually happen but it’s important for us to communicate these details.

In addition to increased online visibility and exposure to grow your fanbase, you can utilize your placements effectively to increase their impact. Incorporating them into your EPK (Electronic Press Kit), establishing a dedicated press page on your website, and partnering with reputable sources can help in obtaining verification through influential platforms. Major labels particularly appreciate independent musicians who proactively develop their portfolios, as it establishes a foundation of trust within their fan base.

If you wish to do a PR Campaign with the major placements and are interested in many of these publications, you can email us for a custom package.

If you have a significant budget for major PR you can provide us with your goal, your budget for PR and press and then we can set up a bundle and give you the best possible price up to the budget point.

If your budget point is really high (we’re talking mid 4 to 5+ figures) we do have the capabilities to get you major press even higher than what is listed above such as with Billboard (original), Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Variety, and Rolling Stone (this is the original Rolling Stone and not the Rolling Stone UK limited time deal we are offering). These particular blogs at the higher level always have a pitch-approval process, but our team does have real contracts with them. In some cases for bigger blogs, such Rolling Stone, they need journalism on a press story – especially for picking up indie artists. Our team can help build a promotion plan around that story (we can chart the single, get them an official RIAA plaque, build the success around the release) and then go to the blogs with that story.
