How to Take Your Music to the Next Level
So you have something to say with your music, you've done all the groundwork to get your music created and you have your track/single/EP/album ready to lock and load. But what next? What should you do to make sure your music gets where it needs to be?
The answer is Music Promotion. Promoting your music across as many digital publications and online platforms is vital to getting your music in front of your fans. But it can be a hard slog keeping up with what, when, where and how to promote your sound. Wouldn’t it be great if there was one platform that could take care of everything? Luckily there is!
Music Gateway is a global music platform offering 360° artist services to independent musicians and recording artists. They are known for their music promotion services and really go the extra mile to make sure that your music is heard and delivers real and tangible results for you. Using industry and innovative marketing techniques, their campaigns start from as little as £349 ($400) and stretch across social media marketing, online streaming, radio and press.
The MG team comes from world-leading music marketing companies, businesses, radio and TV stations, and many are musicians themselves - so they really know their stuff. Here are some of the ways they can help you promote your music and get your music heard.

As long as your music is licensed with TikTok it can be pitched to get your music included in unique influencer video content.
Launch your music and watch it soar with a Music Marketing campaign. A targeted music marketing campaign can lead to increased sales and revenue via streaming, digital downloads, physical sales, higher-paying live performances, sync opportunities and other modes of income.
Sync Licensing - Music Promotion Across Film, TV and Games
Music licensing (sync licensing) is a great revenue stream, generating sync fees & backend royalties. It's no wonder it's become a primary focus for a lot of indie artists these days.
Music Gateway represents your music for sync as an agency via their sync platform, working with you to promote & pitch your music to music supervisors working across TV, film & games.
This promotion presents you to key professionals & can help increase the opportunity of securing placements.
Pay As You Grow
Independent artists often have limited budgets but still need to release their music. Here is where Music Gateway comes in.
The Pay As You Grow service allows you to spread the cost of your Music Promotion services by committing to an affordable monthly payment (that you choose!). These funds go into a secure promotional pot for use as and when you release your songs, as opposed to trying to budget for larger funds in one go, per campaign. They believe in long-term relationships which cultivate trust, guiding you every step of the way as your career progresses.
Planning your finances around your release is such a helpful way to ease any stress for an artist and Music Gateway works to give you the best advice in terms of marketing strategies. Their campaigns are a result of long-term planning and cultivating a supportive relationship with you.
