Why Most Music Promotion Fails (And How Working With V13 Promotions is Different)

In the music industry, the road to success is littered with broken promises and hidden pitfalls.

You've seen it all: Bots inflating follower counts, pay-to-play schemes, hollow 'guaranteed' press placements, and playlist curators whose only tune is taking your money. Misleading streaming promotions, overpriced distribution, and fake social growth promises have all made the journey seem impossible.

Add to that scammy contacts, payola, exploitative contracts, biased reviews, and one-size-fits-all 'advice' that leads nowhere but to frustration.
