What are these free music press
For a limited time only, and to UK residents only, LastSound
has partnered with a music promotions company, ProLatis
to offer its members free promotional opportunities.
ProLatis specialises in on-line and off-line promotion
for up and coming artists, producers and companies in
the entertainment industry. The up-shot of the partnership
is that for a limited time we are offering free press
releases to a select group of our visitors.
Initially, the promotion will only be available to UK
visitors. With time, we may well roll it out globally.
Promotion will take the form of press releases, typically
off-line, although occassionally to on-line distribution
channels also. ProLatis has done a test run of around
a dozen press releases in the Manchester area in the last
three months, and has found the average circulation of
each release to be around 70,000 (as of July 2005). Including
on-line releases, the figure is typically closer to 75,000.
We expect figures for the test run to be in a similar
range. We cannot guarantee such figures for every release,
but those are the averages.
