Leverage All About Jazz—the Internet's most technically advanced jazz platform—to reach our vast network of fans and industry professionals locally or worldwide. From establishing a presence at All About Jazz and Jazz Near You to contacting a staff writer about a review, it's all here!
Promoting yourself at All About Jazz starts with your musician page. If your musician page already exists in our database (we have nearly 100,000), claim it, then update it. The most effective page is a complete page, so add as much information as possible.There are several assets associated with your musician page including photos, events, your discography, your bio, links, audio players, etc., so be sure to update it regularly.
In addition to embedding your Soundcloud player and adding up to six YouTube videos on your musician page, we strongly encourage you to upload a full-length MP3 (free) for Track of the Day consideration. If selected, we'll feature your track at All About Jazz, on the All About Jazz Facebook page and on the All About Jazz Twitter page. Each track page includes a "buy" button which drives traffic to a retail store of your choosing.Complete your album discography and we'll help you sell your music. Learn how here.
The big bopper is a fixed location, persistent display ad, sized at a whopping 2,000 pixels wide by 600 pixels high. It anchors every All About Jazz and Jazz Near You page for a full week.
Upload your upcoming shows to Jazz Near You and we'll put them in front of fans wherever you perform. Your events will appear at Jazz Near You, in the Jazz Near You weekly eblast, in the Jazz Near You app, in the Jazz Near You RSS feeds, in the Jazz Near You calendar widget and at All About Jazz.
Launchpad's mission is to bring fans and creators together and new ideas to life. Start your Launchpad fundraising project at All About Jazz and receive active promotional support throughout the duration of your campaign. We'll also temporarily upgrade your musician page from standard to premium.
If you are using another crowdfunding platform (like Kickstarter) we recommend promoting your campaign by distributing a press release and choosing our Facebook post and boost service. $40 combined. You can place your order here. (click the "AAJ Exclusives" tab for Press Release Distribution and the "Social Media" tab for Facebook Post & Boost)
Complete the location and teaching portions of your musician page and we'll make your services accessible to local students on our Teacher finder page.
Take advantage of these free and powerful tools to get the word out:
For album review consideration, update your musician page with your new release information, then contact a staff writer and please send an additional copy of the CD or share the download link with the publisher. If you're not familiar with our staff, click on their "MY TASTE" button. Our staff is particular about what they review, so make sure there's a stylistic match. Do not contact several writers at once—rather contact one at a time and wait for a reply.
