The Release Playbook Bundle

Preparing your release for success

Every day, tens of thousands of songs are released across the globe. Now, it’s more important than ever to stand out amongst the crowd and set up your release for success. The Release Playbook Bundle from Music Ally contains three individual courses that will help creators and their teams understand the different elements of a successful release all the way from pre-release: set up to release day activities. It has been designed to help you to navigate around the various components of a release containing useful checklists, examples and case studies.

What will I learn in this bundle?

  • What assets you'll need and what decisions you need to make in order to set up a release
  • How 'Owned Media, Earned Media and Paid Media' can be used to drive discovery
  • What key release day activities you should undertake to channel your target audience towards the new release
