Due to the large volume of requests and e-mails we receive at Indie Band Guru for features, album reviews, and interviews, we are now offering a Guaranteed Music Review. We will always continue to accept free music submissions but with the horde of music we receive, it is next to impossible to listen to it all. We decided to offer these paid placements as a way to prioritize who and what we feature as well as try to make a living through our sacrifice and dedication to the indie music community. We do this as affordable as possible.

Why pay for placement?
We want you to understand that we are listening to all kinds of independent music each day and a big portion of what we do is for solely the love of music. Bands, artists, and musicians who are willing to pay for a feature placement are proving how serious they are about their music and we strive to honor that level of dedication by offering a level of promotion that these hard working artists deserve.
Independent Music Needs Exposure
As an added bonus, we have noticed that bands who are willing to spend their hard earned money for a review tend to have better-produced music and are much easier to write a positive review for.
Why be featured on the IndieBandGuru website?
Your feature will be on this site forever. This will allow you to leverage our SEO. This improves your chances of ranking higher in search results when people search for independent music. Having a link from our site back to your site also helps your own site rank higher in search engines.

Our growing list of website visitors, Twitter followers, Facebook fans, and RSS subscribers will all see your feature hopefully drawing some new fans.
We have spent years building our network in the independent music community and we have established many connections that pay attention to the music we share with them.
We work with radio promo companies, indie labels, publishers, and other entities that follow us on social media, receive our e-mail updates in their inboxes, and simply keep up with what we are doing and what we are listening to.
Reviews and blog features increase your buzz, show that someone other than you enjoys your music, and it’s simply a great idea to have other people talking about you and your music.
