Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Publicist? How to Maximize Your Client's Coverage at All About Jazz

All About Jazz was part of the 2012 APAP JazzConnect track and participated in the "Platforms That Move Jazz Forward" session. One clear takeaway for me was learning that some publicists don't fully understand how to use All About Jazz to positively impact a client's promotional campaign. I also learned that some publicists are unfamiliar with our services, while yet others greatly underestimate our reach.

This handy how-to guide should clarify All About Jazz's value, while giving a publicist a snapshot of our promotional assets and how our platform (the most advanced in the field of online jazz) can serve you and your clients.

All About Jazz's reach and relevance makes it the top jazz music website in the world, and leveraging it for your client's campaign is good business.

Establishing a Presence at All About Jazz

1. Point them to our Musician Dashboard. This page includes convenient links to every DIY (Do It Yourself) submission form, as well as links to other important promotional opportunities.

2. Post your client's press release direct to the News Center or allow us to read your RSS news feed. All About Jazz's Google ranking will ensure your announcement places high on a search. You also have the option to include a retail link in your announcement and drive online sales. And if you enter a zip code, your announcement will appear on a member's local news page.

3. Take advantage of our suite of free promotional opportunities (accessible from the Musician Dashboard) and encourage your clients to complete the following:

Create/update his/her musician profile (with new bio and new release information, social links, etc.);

Add performance dates to our calendar (learn about our event aggregation/syndicate technology);

Upload new publicity photos to our gallery;

Submit a full length MP3 for "download of the day" consideration;

Submit a video for "video of the day" consideration;

Submit a dozen "Take Five With..." answers. The questions and answers will be published as an article, featured on our home page and integrated with your client's musician profile;

Contact fans through your client's musician profile alerting them to a new release or important performance dates. All About Jazz will email your announcement to your client's fans; we will also post the announcement as a private message (accessible at the top of every page);

Add new album release information to our Albums section.

Editorial Coverage Consideration

For interview and album review opportunities, please see our toolkit page.

The All About Jazz platform aggregates, integrates and syndicates information submitted to our website—and that includes every piece of information above.

So, make All About Jazz a part of your promotional strategy and allow us to help you improve your client's online presence and relevancy.

If you have any questions about our services, please contact me direct.

Best,

Michael Ricci
