Guide to Amrap's Monthly Mailout
Musicians and record labels can use Amrap's Monthly Mailout to service community radio stations.
In addition to mailing out your CDs, you will receive an ‘Artist Profile’ page on Amrap’s AirIT. Registered broadcasters will be able to preview your music and access your biography information.
You will be sent a link to this page to send to your community radio contacts.
Mailouts happen once a month. It is important to book ahead as mailout quotas fill up well in advance.
Check the Dates and Deadlines on Services page and decide when your release would best suit our schedule. Note the fees for the service are also listed on this page.
Step 2 –
Submit this Request for Mailout Service form. When you’ve submitted the form you will be directed to our postal address and given a Submission Code.
Write the Submission Code clearly on the front of your CD and post it to the address supplied on the request form. We will not preview your music via your webpage or in a digital format. You must send music to us in CD format, in the packaging that you want distributed to stations.
Amrap will preview your CD in reference to your request form. Based on the amount of appropriate stations we believe would match your music, we will advise the maximum number of CDs we could distribute on your behalf and send you a quote by email. You can provide as many CDs as you would like distributed up to the maximum number we advised in the quote.
The emailed quote contains a booking form and further details on how to add your music to AirIT.
After your CD has been serviced, Amrap will provide you with a contact list for all stations that received your, CD enabling you to follow up with each.
Amrap surveys stations to check what's getting a reaction. Any feedback received specific to your release is forwarded to you in a final feedback report one month after distribution.
