Digital Music News has just partnered with YouTube to make a commercial. It’s all about the publication, our readers, and our music industry community. Want to be a part of it?
Updated 11/19: We’ve already gotten responses from a number of top executives (inside and outside the business) and even a big rapper. US, international, etc. We’re putting together the scripts now, so please let us know if you want in! In the comments please put your contact info or reach out to us at [email protected].
Here’s the deal: YouTube asked us if we wanted to create a commercial. It’s more a video ‘about us’ that we can use to expand, promote, and grow. We’ll also use the spot to demonstrate what this publication is all about to future partners, including investors and partner publications.
We said yes. But only if we could put some of our most dedicated readers and partners into the spot.
The reason is that we’re so much more than just a music industry publication. We’re a community of people in the music industry, and a growing resource for people trying to navigate this space. That includes everyone from major label execs, tech startups, artists, and songwriters, with almost everyone in between.
So jump into our spot, and tell ’em that you read us! We’re thinking something simple like, ‘I read Digital Music News’ with a chyron of your name and company. Or, maybe you can give us a shout out at your packed show (like Kanye).
We’re shooting in a few weeks in and around Santa Monica, which means anyone hanging around Los Angeles is game. If you won’t be in the area, no worries: we can integrate a video clip that you create.
Then, we’re going to blast the spot on our site, throughout YouTube, and eventually, other platforms.

Hope to hear from you.
