I would like to curate the monthly NxM playlist on Emanate in order to showcase and promote the music created within the NxM network. In promoting the playlist through targeted media releases as well as a strong social media presence, we will boost engagement amongst listeners as well as prospective artists.
Comprehensive media releases along with an active social media presence will ensure success in further engaging existing audiences as well as drawing in new artists. Two media releases will be prepared monthly, outlining the objective of the NxM playlist along with a listing of tracks and artists featured on the playlist, notifying audiences of how they can access the playlist. The first media release will be distributed prior to the posting of the playlist and the second one will post shortly after the playlist is made available online. The media releases will be sent to music media outlets, digital art publications and NFT related blog sites and podcasts.
In order to successfully establish a strong social media presence the following steps will be taken. A Gmail, IG and Twitter NxM playlist account will be created to post and distribute material promoting the monthly playlist.
When an artist submits their song for playlist consideration, they will be asked to submit details about the song and the creative process behind recording and producing the track.
As an example:
- The song was recorded in my garage in one take.
- I recorded the vocals in my room and emailed them to the producer who mixed them down.
- The song is about where I grew up
Throughout the month, details of songs featured on the playlist will be posted on social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and IG) along with the artist name, song title, playlist link and relevant hashtags.
In addition to that, every month, an NxM artist will be selected to be the NxM playlist featured artist for that month. The artist will submit a short video clip introducing themselves, their song and the NxM Playlist. The video clip will be posted on social media along with a caption inviting artists to join the NxM network, the link to the playlist as well as a tagline presenting NxM as an international network of innovative Audio NFT artists; an invaluable resource within the crypto/Metaverse space.
The links to songs featured on the playlist will be posted on social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and IG) along with the artist name, song title and relevant hashtags throughout the month.
The playlist will consist of 10-15 tracks depending on submissions received.
Requested Monthly Funding Amount: 29 hours at $30 USD = $870 USD.
Monthly Funding Breakdown:
3 hours receiving, reviewing and organizing submissions, curating the Playlist.
1 hour for the preparation of the media releases.
1 hour for the distribution of the media releases.
1 hour a day, 6 days a week, social media engagement on Facebook, Twitter and IG. This would also include time spent coordinating the featured artist of the month video clip as well as the artist details postings.
Thank you for your consideration.
