I just submitted or album “Blind Spot” to Making a Scene and the Independent Blues Awards. We are very excited about this particular award because Richard L’Hommedieu and the folks at Making a Scene do such an incredible job getting new artists some real exposure. We are seeing a huge spike in CD Sales on CD Baby and also a spike on Spotify for monthly listeners. This has never happened to Phil Berkowitz and I before. We have always flown under the radar.
Out of all the music platforms for Indie blues artists, this is really the one. It’s a tireless 24/7 effort with their newsletters and their “Live at The Midnight Circus” podcasts.
The Making a Scene difference is we drive traffic to our site EVERY DAY! Using multiple social media outlets to promote our daily postings of articles, interviews, podcasts and CD Reviews to Hundred of thousands of people. Unlike some other online advertisers for musicians, Music Fans and music related businesses, we don’t wait for weekly or even monthly updates to drive our traffic, we work daily to drive traffic to our site and YOUR ad.
This all goes to make Making a Scene one of the most affordable advertising opportunities that directly targets a highly engaged market of Musicians and Music Fans.
The numbers support this model, we now average over 7 million page reads a month and that number keeps growing! This is no small feat and is a testament to our content and our ability to drive traffic to the site via social media and our newsletter.
Our weekly Newsletter, which was launched in 2015 and now has a subscriber base of over 17,000 members. Better yet, our statistics show we have over 70% engagement with our content within the newsletter. What that means that during any given week, approximately 70% of the emails are opened and read. This shows that our content is important to our subscribers and your ad WILL get seen! Not only that this newsletter drives traffic to Making a Scene website, and to your ad on the site!
