A week into the new year, your band has probably made some resolutions. At the top of the list, no doubt, is getting your name out there and gaining exposure. We’ve been psyched enough to be able to help out some unsigned bands since Metal Insider has started. Our No Label Needed contest and series helped bring Iron Thrones into the metal consciousness, and our Unsigned and Streamed column featured Anciients and Encrust before they were signed, to name a few. We’re still going strong, with no signs of slowing down. In fact, if you’re interested in being featured, email us at tips [at] metalinsider [dot] net.
Another excellent way to get exposure would be by advertising with us. Metal Insider is part of the Blast Beat Network, a series of sites that in addition to us, includes pretty much any other metal website worth reading. Metal Sucks, Metal Injection, Decibel Magazine, Lambgoat and ThePRP are just some of the other sites on the network. And throughout the month of January, all unsigned bands can be advertised across the network for a price lower than what the labels pay. This is good for January only, so get in on it!
For $100, your 728×90 leaderboard ad (on top of the site) will be shown 50,000 times across the network over the course of 30 days.
Do you want in? Of course you do! Here’s how to get involved:
Step 1) Send a payment of $100 to paypal [at] blastbeatnetwork [dot] com via PayPal.
Step 2) Email your banner – 728×90 pixels, jpg or gif only, maximum of 70k file size – to zel [at] blastbeatnetwork [dot] com, along with the URL you’d like the banner to point to (your band’s Facebook page, Bandcamp, webstore, etc).
It’s that easy. You’ll get an email once your campaign has started, and you’ll probably gain more of a following, too. Again, this is only good through the end of the month, so act now if you want to get your band on Metal Insider and other leading sites around the metal blogosphere.
