Real Promotion, The AIF Difference: Most record promotion companies just track a record or package sent instead of really pushing and promoting it. Tracking means this: Someone calls the radio station (or video channel, etc.) once a week and asks, "was the record (or video) played? How many times? OK, thanks, Bye", or if it's tracking and following up on a package sent to a music company, record label, etc, that person will call once a week and ask "Did you get the CD? Have you listened to it yet" OK, thanks, Bye". A week later that person will ask the same thing all over again. That's not enough and will not get much accomplished. AIF provides real promotion. We will talk up the special appeal and qualities of an artist, CD song, music, etc. in order to create interest and excitement so the radio station, record label or other music company will be more compelled to listen to/review/or play your CD. Put yourself in their shoes, they talk to tons of people a day. Who and what are they more likely to remember? The same old tired pitch on the phone, or that fantastic sounding band with the interesting and unique sounding CD as described by their promoter or label.
