I recieved an e-mail the other night from someone I don’t know….Here it is.
I was surfing the net and ended up on your songs at http://www.songwritersdirectory.com I like your songs and I believe they could get recorded by a major star if they were heard by the right people. I’ve met a song plugger at several different music industry functions. He seems to be a nice guy and he has a very successful track record. I’ve been told his fees are really reasonable.
His web site is http://www.charlieraymusic.com Be sure to click on “Accomplishments.” He has more gold and platinum albums than I’ve ever seen in one place.
Good Luck With Your Music,

So, mostly outta curiosity, I sent the guy a message, and here was his response….......
I do traditional plugging to publishers, record companies and producers, recording artists, ad agencies, television and movie producers, and other commercial users of music. This is done one on one sitting in music offices in various cities of the USA.
Of course; I have to review songs before I can agree to personally plug them. Once I agree to do, I make CD copies of the song (s). The number of copies depends on the duration of the plugging agreement. I then plug until the number of copies is depleted or the time span has expired, whichever occurs first. Each CD is printed with your contact information.
My rates for traditional plugging are
one song 45 days or 25 copies $150
90 days or 50 copies $250
180 days or 100 copies $400
If plugging multiple songs on one disc a sizeable discount applies. I’ll plug up to 5 songs on one set of discs for 180 days for $600.
Please keep this email chain intact by clicking reply. My assistant opens email here, also. He’ll need to know what you and I have agreed to do.
You may send MP3 files by email or a link to a web site. I will need to review songs before we work together.
