Blog Music Submission Guidelines

Once you know where to send your music, it’s important to have your material formatted properly. You want to give yourself the highest chance possible of getting the music placed on any blog you send it to.

1. Audio Quality

4. Get Your Money Ready

Blogging is a business. Some blogs will post your content after you pay them a fee. Don’t shy away from blogs just because they charge you to post content. The price is usually fair considering how much traffic some major blogs get on a regular basis.

You can use FREE resources like Alexa and SEO Professional to see how popular a blog is.
