How Not to Submit a Song

By admin on December 21, 2012 16:34

While we receive many submissions to the Kiwi6 directory, only a small number are approved each day. There's a lot of great music out there, but many submissions need work! Today, let's focus on why most music is rejected, with specific examples.

  • Using all caps in text. Don't use all caps anywhere. It is annoying and unprofessional.
  • Misspelling every single word. Spelling and grammar counts. Proofread. If your work is not in English, it's OK to include non-English text, but you need English too.
  • Unsubstantiated claims. Ex: "Im An Artistic Genius...", "We are the greatest R&B hip hop artists in the world". Be factual in your descriptions; we don't go along with unknowns claiming to be world famous. This is mostly seen in artist bios.
  • Abusing Tags. Do not tag your song "britney spears" if it has nothing to do with Britney Spears. Using bad tags is actually likely to lower your rankings, because it causes people to behave differently from songs with correct tags.

The above list precludes things like intentional misbehavior (copyright infringement, joke submissions, spamming), which we get a good deal of as well, but hopefully this list will help those of you who are having a hard time getting accepted and honestly wondering why.
