MODULE 4: LESSON 7
Check out the content below about: Registering Your Music To Track Radio Spins
A lot of artists skip this step–don’t be one of them. It’s easy and it’s free to register your music so that you can get credit for your songs when they’re played on the radio. The two main companies to register with are Mediabase and Nielsen BDS. They pretty much do the same thing, except their processes are a little different. My advice is register with both.
When uploading to Nielsen BDS, they require you to convert your high quality MP3 file from 320kbps to 128kbps. I’ve included a free tool below to accomplish that. Why is all of this important? Properly registering your music can help you get on the Billboard Charts if you get enough radio spins or record sales. Just something to keep in mind.
