SUBMITHUB – YOU NEED THIS

Let us tell you about Submithub; why you need it and how to get it.

 

SubmitHub was founded in late 2015 as a way to make the process of sending music to curators as easy and transparent as possible. They give you all sorts of statistics and ways to filter who to send your music to so you can make sure your song ends up in the right hands.

Submithub saves you hours and hours of research trying to find the right people and channels to communicate your releases to. You can reach the following recipients, only a few clicks (and a small amount of cash) away:

  • Bloggers
  • Labels
  • Spotify Playlisters
  • YouTubers
  • Radio Stations
  • Influencers

With a little luck, your music will meet the taste of the respective editors and your track or album will be featured on their pages or in their playlists.

 

How it works

SubmitHub allows you to easily send your music to curators using either standard or premium “credits.” Each curator requests between 1 and 3 credits.

If you use premium credits, you can expect a decision within 48 hours. For a curator to earn your credits, they will need to listen to at least 20 seconds of your song, and if they don’t like it they’ll need to explain why. While 20 seconds might not seem like a lot, the average listening time by bloggers is actually close to 2 minutes.

If a curator decides that they like your song, they’ll let you know when and how they plan to share it. You’ll be able to chat with them about the release, and share any information you think they might need for their coverage. The current approval rate is 20% for premium submissions and 4% for standard submissions. While more than 1,438,000 songs have been approved and shared, the competition is fierce, and even the most-successful artists face their fair share of rejection. Still, it’s much cheaper than hiring a publicist 🙂

Sometimes the feedback you receive when your song is declined will be useful. Other times it might not make sense. It’s important to keep in mind that most curators are doing this as a hobby, and sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect words for why they don’t like a song. At the end of the day, music is about personal experiences, and what works for you won’t work for everyone.

Now that you know a little bit about how SubmitHub works, you should be well-equipped to start submitting!

 

How much does Submithub cost?

Premium credits have to be bought and cost about $1 each. If you buy bulk they cost a bit less. In general reaching one curator costs 1 credit. So if you want to reach 100 curators, it will cost you approximately $100. But they offer you a few clear advantages: if you redeem them, SubmitHub guarantees you individual feedback from the sampled blogs and playlist curators within 48 hours, otherwise you will get the credits refunded and can use them again. In addition, the media you submit to must listen to your release for at least 20 seconds before they can make a decision and send you written feedback. Alternatively, you can set a parameter that the editors to listen to the song for at least 90 seconds, but then you won’t get written feedback. So it’s up to you how you want it to work.

Then we have the standard credits. You get them for free on top (two credits every 4 hours you stay on the platform) – but their effectiveness is limited because the blogs you write to don’t necessarily have to listen to your release when you send it to them.
