MusikFly: Makes it Easy to Submit and Receive Music

As a musician it is extremely important for your music to be heard by the right people. As a blogger, it is extremely important to discover artists and help them gain publicity as efficiently as possible.

Musikfly offers a simple submission platform that can be embedded into a blogger’s site and used in place of email for their submissions. So when a musician goes to their favorite blog and wants to submit their music, they just click a link, connect to their soundcloud or youtube, and add the songs they want to submit. Then once sumbitted, instead of having a clogged email inbox, the blogger has a clean filtered submission feed where they can listen to the songs and learn about the artists all on the same page.

How to Ensure that Your Music Never Gets Reviewed

Even high quality music can be overlooked, which, more often than not, has everything to do with first impressions.   From the point that a submission email enters their overflowing inbox,  reviewers want to minimize the roadblocks necessary to developing an objective (and hopefully good) opinion of your music.  Not approaching submissions with this in mind will guarantee their failure to pique reviewers’ interest.
