Who do you think decides what new music is worth putting out there to the public and what music isn’t worthy? You, of course! If you love music, enjoy hearing new tunes, and want to win free prizes to boot, why not visit a fabulous website called Promosquad.
Many record labels want to see how the public likes some new music and groups, so they enlist sites like Promosquad to test the newest songs. Members rate the songs, leave comments about what they like or dislike about the music, then receive points which can be spent on assorted prizes.
The “Jukebox”, as it’s called, contains many new songs, hopefully some of them big hits, from newcomers and known artists as well. Whereas newcomers hope the public will love their new music, and send them skyrocketing to the top of the charts, established artists look for opinions from the public on possible new hits.
Although the Jukebox is constantly being loaded with more and more new songs, it is possible to rate every one of them. Should this happen with you, just wait a few days then come back, you’ll find more new music waiting for you.
You can also earn lots of points by sending new artists, or their music, to Promosquad. If their music makes the Jukebox, you’ll receive many points, which can then be spent at their prize store. Prizes are listed by point category like Bronze, Emerald, Silver, Gold, Sapphire, Platinum or Diamond.
Prizes in the lower point categories, like Bronze or Emerald include CD’s, pictures of famous stars, or even posters. Save more points and shop in a category such as Platinum or Diamond. Here you’ll find prizes like iPods and gift baskets.
Sign up with the site, then go to the Jukebox to listen to and rate music. You’ll earn points for each song, bonus points for listening to 25 songs in a week, and even more bonus points if you rate 50 songs in a week. There are also special raffles and contests where you’ll earn even more.
After listening to the song you’ll be given a comment box where you can list things you liked or didn’t like about the song. The more specific you are, the more helpful it will be to the record labels that need your opinion. When the comment box opens, after the song plays, you’ll choose either “I love it”, “I like it”, “It’s OK”, “I don’t like it”, or “I hate it”. Below that choice is a comment box where you can list specifics of things you liked or didn’t.
For each song you listen to, whether you liked it or not, you’ll receive 5 points in your account. The smallest category for cashing out your points is the Bronze category, requiring 500 points to purchase your first prize. Or, save the points for a larger prize.
I enjoy listening to new music at Promosquad and I think you will too. It feels good to know you’re contributing to the music industry by offering your honest opinion to the artists or newcomers. Each song takes about 5 minutes from beginning of song to end of rating, if you have dial-up. Broadband allows a little faster loading time.
Give Promosquad a try. You can listen to tunes while you check email or surf the web. With dial-up you’ll experience pages that load a little slower than normal, while the Jukebox is open, but it’s not too agonizing and you’ll really enjoy a lot of the new songs you’ll hear.
