In order to get your music career off the ground, you first have to somehow make it past the industry gatekeepers. Here we look at how to craft an email pitch for your music that will stand out from the pack and capture the attention of the recipient.
In this latest piece from MusicThinkTank, Brandon Jackson outlines the five essential elements of an email pitch and what you need to cut through the crowd.
"If you want someone to spend their valuable time to help you, you have to make it easy for them to do so. Include links to the song you want considered as well as your website, social media or press kit. This will ensure your prospect has all the information they need to make a decision on whether or not to grant your request.
Important: Instead of an mp3 attachment, include a link to a private stream of your song. Mp3 attachments bog down the recipient’s e-mail server and are a huge turnoff to the gatekeepers in the music industry."
