What Are You Looking For In An Artist?
The winner will be selected based on overall commercial viability, and nothing else. This includes (but is not limited to) relevant lyrics/delivery, a current image, quality music video production, and a quality recording/mix/master.
We are looking for something that’s “sellable” in the market right now. Once we find that one artist, we will take care of the rest of the marketing, and attempt to get that artist 1 million+ streams on Spotify… all for free. In fact, we will be coming out of pocket for marketing expenses to promote the selected artist.
Once we have a winner, we will begin working on exposure immediately. We understand that it will take some work to merely enter this contest, however, you should note that these things are important to your career if you’re serious about making it as an artist, and they should be getting done anyway.
Why Should I Trust You With Marketing My Work?
We’ve been in the world of internet marketing for the past 8 years. And we know a LOT about it. With our ever-growing marketing skills, we’ve built this brand (Fivestar Beats) to $10,000 per month (and growing). Further, we’ve gotten over 2 million plays on our beat store, and have over 1,000 loyal customers. None of this came by accident… we worked our asses off, and strategically planned our every move. It’s not luck – we know what we’re doing.
Some of today’s cutting-edge online marketing techniques aren’t even being used by major labels, so we have great confidence in taking the winner to 1 million streams on Spotify. We could go on and on, but the reality is this – we don’t have to prove anything. We are doing this for FREE for the winner of this contest.
How Will You Get Exposure For The Winner?
The bulk of the groundwork that will go into building the winner’s exposure will be utilizing the robust marketing platforms of Facebook & Instagram. These will be 100% real streams from real people, not fake streams (that can get your account banned in a heartbeat). We will also make sure that the functionality & design of all social profiles + website(s) is up-to-date, and primed for exposure.
How Long Will This Take?
The goal is to do this within 6 months. However, it could happen sooner, or take a bit longer. Nonetheless, 1 million streams is no joke.
As our marketing achievements in the past were based around selling beats, this is our first time ever attempting this (and there’s a good chance that this is the first time ANYONE has attempted to do what we’re going to do). With that said, we cannot guarantee that the winner will get 1,000,000 streams. It is merely a target point for us, and we have confidence that we “can” achieve this. The maximum amount of money we will come out of pocket is $2,000 over the course of the marketing campaign. Once we hit that point, we will discontinue our marketing efforts, however, we will put forth our best efforts to spread the funds accordingly.
