Groover is a platform that connects musicians with media outlets, labels, and influencers who can promote their music. It is a simple and effective way to get feedback and exposure for your songs, without having to spend hours pitching and emailing. In this blog post, I will share my experience using Groover and give you some tips on how to make the most of it.
I signed up for Groover as a smooth jazz musician who wanted to get more exposure for my indie rock project. I uploaded my latest single and set a budget of $50 to send it to 50 curators of my choice. Groover has a wide range of curators from different genres, countries, and platforms, such as blogs, radio stations, playlists, YouTube channels, and more. You can filter them by genre, location, language, audience size, and rating.
Each curator has a price per listen, which ranges from $1 to $4. This means that you only pay if they listen to at least 20 seconds of your song. If they listen to your song, they will also give you a rating and a feedback. If they like your song, they may also share it on their platform or contact you for further opportunities.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the feedback I received from the curators. Out of the 50 curators I sent my song to, 42 listened to it and gave me feedback. Most of them were positive and constructive, and some of them even shared my song on their blogs or playlists. I also got some messages from curators who wanted to collaborate with me or interview me for their platforms.
Groover also has a dashboard where you can track the performance of your campaigns, see the statistics of your songs, and manage your messages with the curators. You can also rate the curators based on their feedback and responsiveness.
Overall, I think Groover is a great tool for musicians who want to get more exposure and feedback for their music. It is easy to use, affordable, and effective. It also helps you build relationships with curators who can support your career in the long term. I would definitely recommend it to any musician who wants to grow their fanbase and reach new audiences.
