Why pay multiple agencies to fill your needs when Sundial Media Group can do it all for less? We do everything below, all inclusive for a reasonable monthly fee and we get started with no money up front. If you hire us, we'll show you what we can do before we charge you a dime.
WEBSITE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Musician's websites are often amateurish, clunky and outdated. They can be disorganized, full of spelling and grammatical errors, not updated, and not mobile-responsive. Even in the age of Facebook, your website is the central hub in your marketing arsenal and it's style and substance reflects on you as an artist. Our websites are modern, tailored to your latest release, responsive on all devices, and synchronized with your live dates and social media.

social media branding, management & marketing
You MUST be engaged regularly in social media at least several times per week. When you sign up with Sundial Media Group, we redesign and brand each platform to match your entire online profile. Once your brand is where it should be, we sync your live dates to all channels and we stay actively involved through the life of your program using intelligent graphics, updated headers, and impactful #hashtags and @mentions. This is absolutely crucial to your success and we take it seriously. To the left is a sampling of graphics we've put out over social media. Click to enlarge.
live gig promotion
Live gigs are the "make it" or "break it" component for most musicians in today's market. At Sundial Media Group, we give live shows the attention they deserve with timely announcements and digital gig "fliers" that get distributed via your social platforms. Like we said above, fans of music respond to other arts as well - so we make your gig announcement stand out! The venues are usually happy to post these "fliers" and they'll be happy you went to the effort. Plus, we give your fans the ability to be instantly alerted when you book a show within 25, 50, 100 miles of them. Piece of cake!

RELEASE and STREAMING sTRATEGY & CONSULTING
In this age of digital music consumption, we'll work with you on a phased production and release strategy that maximizes revenue through exclusive distribution to your most dedicated fans first. Then, we'll assist you with getting your music heard through verified profiles, scan codes, creative playlisting and streaming with Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon and Google Play. Once that is in place, we'll keep you updated with robust analytics and feedback.
FAN CLUB MANAGEMENT & NEWSLETTERS
The importance of a mailing list or "fan club" cannot be understated. Email addresses are still gold for a musician and MUST be collected at every opportunity. Sundial Media Group will help you easily gather names, email addresses, and zip codes from various collection points (website, live gigs, social media) and we will drop them into a backend database automatically. Then we'll send a beautiful, graphically rich newsletter regularly with news, tour dates, promotions, and social invites. Click the image on the left for a sample.
How much have you paid for radio promotion in the past? Here are some things to keep in mind:
- Terrestrial radio is losing listeners to streaming, especially in the adult contemporary and jazz formats.
- Even .com radio stations are losing listeners to streaming.
- Radio play is still important for exposure - but it's less important than before.
And yet, despite these facts, traditional radio promoters are not lowering the cost of their services - and they expect YOU to do the labeling, stuffing, and stamping hundreds of CD's, many of which will come back as non-deliverable. Today, many radio stations will accept a well organized digital package which includes high-quality .mp3's, hi-res cover art, and a "one-sheet". We will do this for you and send your tracks to our consistently updated database of music directors and radio people. They know us and work with us because we promote their shows as well.
CREATIVE SERVICES, graphics & writing
We do album artwork from concept to completion - art direction, styling, photos, graphics, and packaging if you're producing physical copies. Our relationships with CD manufacturers make it easy for us to work on your behalf. To the left are some that we recently finished. Click to enlarge.
Looking for that perfect bio, one-sheet, press release, album abstract, or review. Let us do it!
ARTIST MANAGEMENT & BOOKING
While we're not a traditional management firm, we can be an integral part of your existing team - or we can handle the duties ourselves. With our corporate operations and legal experience, we'll help you with contracts, booking, promotion, travel, sourcing a band, release strategy, and much more.
