So What do you get? A brief summary of our music video promotion services

OK, so You made a great new video, now ask yourself, Do you think every music programmer knows about your new video? Is YOUR NAME and YOUR SINGLE release on the tip of programmers tongues as are other A-List artists? That is what Rive Video Promotion does for you. Think of us as a Publicist for your music video. Whether you are a new independent artist, or even a known artist dropping a new single, your music video release has to break through the clutter and become known to the programmers and fans, otherwise the single is over before it started. You need every programmer to know who you are every bit as much as they know who Jay Z, Beyonce, Coldplay or Metallica is. Getting your music heard by programmers is what we do for you. Within a week of our servicing your video, EVERY video programmer on our huge list will know who you are. This is invaluable, as you are competing to be on the same play lists as other A-List Artists. It is breaking through on these playlists, getting aired on REAL Television, and being chatted about by real bloggers that sets you apart from ordinary Youtube uploads. The mass exposure you get from being on MTV, BET, REVOLT, Music Choice and hundreds of other music video shows is what will expose your music to millions of fans, and drive those fans to find you on your social networks and websites. When you see your music react on the National and Regional video shows, Video POOLS and internet blogs we promote, you will see increase traffic and views from REAL fans to your internet sites. Remember, a viral video is driven essential by word of mouth. Nothing forces you to click any video link. When you upload a video to YouTube, nobody even knows it’s there. It is that someone vouched for the music video that make a person click a link. People have to hear your music, see your videos, watch you play, read about you in a blog to cause a fan to want MORE from you. Where does that interest and spark come from? The exposure we get your video on REAL video outlets.

Don’t opt for fake views, or sites that want to monetize your video. If you are not keeping ALL of the royalties, you are getting ripped off. Any artist can start their own YouTube Page and monazite the content and keep ALL of the profit. We can assist you in setting up your channel.

Remember, nothing feels more real than being on real television and being talked about by real programmers and bloggers. We give your music that chance to react with the programmers so that they will vouch for your sound, and turn their HUGE audiences on to your music video. Let us have the chance to make this happen for you. Remember ONE view on MTV can be seen by over 100,000 viewers. This massive airplay is what will introduce your music to fans, and drive fans to your Youtube Page, Website, iTunes Page and more.

Our promotion serves 2 necessary functions:

Production:
First, we have to format the video master for Broadcast. This means that every master has to first be Closed Captioned, and then the tape master copies have to be made in the appropriate tape or digital format, and shipped to the individual programmer. We use the highest quality tape stock, and most popular Closed Captioning program to achieve this, preserving the original look and quality of the master. This is to assure you that when the video airs, it looks pristine. When shipped, each programmer will receive a package with the video master, all necessary paperwork, sub forms, Bio, Photo, and Rive Video One-Sheet, describing highlights of the artists career, tour dates, bullet points, sales notes, and notable hype.

Promotion:
After servicing your video masters to the programmers, our promotional service retainer begins. We make weekly calls to each programmer, getting them bullet points on the project, and pitching them to program the video. Our retainer is for an 8 week promotion. We provide 8 weekly tracking reports, stating who is airing the video, when, and where.

We want to do the best work possible for you and want to make sure that this video gets serviced properly. Please give me a call 732-530-1501 or email me back at John@rivevideo.com and I’ll be happy to answer any questions or concerns about the whole process.

Please fill out the contact form for more information. Provide us with a link to your song of video and We will promptly get you a specific custom proposal for your song, with our huge target list of show, pricing, and a strategy to maximize airplay of your video. No obligation to buy anything.
