Tracking Client Coverage at All About Jazz
All About Jazz has taken tracking client coverage to the next level. We also made every aspect of managing and servicing our writers a snap. Recent improvements are extensive, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Your Publicity Firm Settings Form
You control what information appears on your page primarily from your publicity firm page update form. Just click the blue button.
You’ll want to ensure your page is current and complete by adding your logo, address, links, etc., but for this tutorial we’ll focus on client tracking and record service management.
The first section, labeled “All About Jazz Record Service Recipients” allows you to add or subtract All About Jazz writers who you service. Once you select a writer, you can quickly access their written archive from your publicity firm page.
If a writer no longer contributes to All About Jazz, either you or AAJ’s publisher can remove them.
You can identify a writer’s music format preference: CD/Vinyl or Digital.
We also provide a free-form text box for notes about our writers. The information on your update form is visible to you only.
Add your business clients (e.g. record labels, venues, festivals, etc.) by entering then in the appropriate box. When you do, you'll gain access to related articles under the Client Coverage tab and via a news or article search.
