How do bands get press coverage

You pay…………….. that’s how

Here is an email aPAtT received recently. (Note the original review is dumb and far from pleasing).

These are our rates for, based on 24,000 UMV / 40,000 monthly impressions.

$50 – 400+ word review
$75 – 500+ word featured article
$75 – 10 question interview.

Package deal = $150, all three.

We also offer on-site advertising, which is 30 days for $125. The advertisement would be located just below the Catman Cohen advert, on the right side of the webpage.

The articles/interviews/features are all submitted to Digg, Fark, Mixx, Reddit, Propeller, Showhype, Twitter, Myspace and the like.

If you would purchase a package, we could get working on writing and promoting each of the pieces in short order. We would send the articles to you for final approval, place them online, promote said articles, and then forward you a list of links back.

Looking forward to hearing back.
