Holiday Music Submissions ... The Clock is Ticking!
September 13, 2016
We’ve been reminding you about holiday submissions since the dog days of summer but now it’s time to get down to business! Much like radio, retail programmers are anxiously compiling holiday product as we speak to be used to create their playlists for the busiest time of the year.
With WISM, you can submit your music as early or as late in the season as you like, however, the only way to ensure your song is loaded and ready to start playing the day holiday programming begins, is to get your submission in ASAP.
The programmers at Retail Radio have many different holiday playlists to populate: Classic Covers, Instrumentals, Hanukkah, and much, much more! Original songs are especially encouraged!
In many retail locations you’ll start hearing holiday music in early to mid-November with a steep and steady increase in the month of December. The great thing here is that with 30,000+ stores, restaurants, supermarkets and hotels, plus more than 700 mall locations, the amount of exposure your music will receive is staggering. How much you ask? Last year, WISM Client, Margo Rey’s original holiday single, “This Holiday Night” received more than 630,000 plays in December alone!
We’ve already received a number of submissions including several from super star acts. To secure your spot submit your music today!
