Promotions, Silber Monthly Charts

I got an email today from a Japanese label asking about my promo services.  I’d forgotten I even offer those as I haven’t done it for anyone in about two years now.  I told them the straight scoop on how bad things are promo wise now (& that anyone saying otherwise was a hopeless optimist or a liar) & then told them I’d be happy to do any work they wanted.  I suppose I do need to fix the page a bit.  Postal rates have certainly gone up & all the MySpace stuff is 100% useless I’m sure.  When I got a new machine I didn’t even re-install the software for that stuff!

Below are the monthly charts I got from the Silber website.  The way the stats come in I don’t get info about MP3s streamed unfortunately, but it still gives a general idea of popularity.  It is pretty exciting to get three of the non-free releases in the charts for the top ten downloads (though it does include downloads from press & radio folks just so you don’t think it means I’m rolling in cash).  I will admit to a fear of the amount of times my music appears in the top ten making me feel like Silber is in danger of becoming a vanity label.
