Top 5 Tips For Approaching Music Bloggers

This is all the information that you need to reach those lovely Music Bloggers who would take the time to post your submissions. We have provided you with the tools to get the job done. Check out some of the related information below to see if this fits what you are doing.

1.  Do your Research
It may sound obvious but read the descriptions that are included in The Music Blog Directory and focus your time and energy on blogs that fit your style of music.
Hit the link, go their website and read the last few posts, you may just discover a new blog to follow. Remember that you are asking the blogger to become your new fan, so it could certainly help your cause if you have already returned the favor.

2.  Follow their submission guidelines
Some blogs have strict music submission guidelines. Music submissions are a part of the game. It is also another way for a blogger to test if you have taken the time to read their blog or not.
 
3.  Send personalized emails. 
Please don't mass email blogs! Take the time to Take the time to craft each individual email, address them by name, include a few personalized details you've learned through your research or casually mention a post of theirs that you enjoyed. You are asking the blogger to take the time to listen to your music and hopefully write a review, take the time to  personally email each blogger which is why we included this information in The Wrap-Up Magazine
 
4.  Keep it Short, Sweet and to the Point!
Bloggers receive hundreds and hundreds of emails a day so do not be disheartened if you do receive a response on your first try. Chances are they have not even read your email. 
Don't overwhelm them with long windy emails...you have 3 sentences to catch the bloggers attention so keep it short, sharp, genuine, interesting and to the point.  
Bloggers will simply tune out if you don't get to the point quickly. If they want to know more, they will ask. 
 
5.  Be Unique...Be You!
We have all heard the phrase "what's the story" and no that's not where did you grow up and what ashes your music rose from (unless of course you grew up on a remote part of Antarctica and learn to play music in the ashes of the fire that kept you alive in the cold harsh winter)
