Press Release Services
HTL Consulting Group offers several campaigns and or services to artists at various levels in their careers. Those signed to major labels; those who have independent labels of their own, while others who are just independent artists doing it on their own.
HTL Consulting Group Artist PR Campaigns are strategically designed to take artists like you from just making music to having a music career. You can start, grow and reach us as we will be there every step of the way.
For our major press release campaign, you will be assigned a full independent team (from our company and/or from other partner companies and assigns) that includes the following:
Press Release Coordinator
Radio Coordinator (For services that include radio campaign)
Social Media Marketing Manager
Press Release and Interviews
When you purchase a PR Campaign, you will immediately be assigned a Project Manager who will reach out to you via phone or email within 24 hours. The Project Manager will request the following from you to get the campaign started:
Availability For A Phone Interview With Our Publicist
Social Media Links And Other Promotional Materials
If an interview is scheduled for a specific date and time and for whatever reason you cannot make it, you need to notify us before the schedule at the soonest time possible, and you will be granted one reschedule.
Blog Features and Placements
Each PR Campaign provides blog features of the artist’s music, photo and exclusive Press Release. Some blogs are more high-end, premium platforms depending on the campaign purchased. Pricing is subject to change and is dictated by the publication involved. If we receive an unexpected notice of a price change for services, we will give you notice and pass the increase on to you as our client. You agree to pay for any such unexpected price change by these independent publications which is beyond our control.
The term “blog feature” refers to "placements". Your music, promotional photo and the exclusive press release you have approved will be placed on the Blog websites included in the campaign. Whether it's The Source Magazine, Hip Hop Weekly or ThisIs50, you will be provided with all the links for your personal use or archives. The PR Coordinator assigned to your team will communicate with you about these details.
If the PR Campaign you purchased includes a radio campaign, you will be assigned a Radio Coordinator. This member of your team will coordinate with program directors and will provide you with the interview schedules upon confirmation. If you missed an interview, you will be granted one reschedule.
All radio interviews are via phone patch and you will be provided with each station’s contact number to call at an appointed time.
Stations vary for different campaigns. The major label campaigns with large budgets include clear channel FM radio stations.
Most of the digital and online radio stations we partner with are DRT reporting stations or BDS-certified and pay royalties
Once the Press Release process has begun, request for a refund will not be entertained anymore as all monies are already distributed to our partners and/or assigns for the blog feature lock ins and placements at this point.
After the first week of the campaign, the process of outsourcing and paying our partners and/or business associates for their work on the successful completion of the campaign have been started and no request for a refund will be acknowledged.
Set off rights
If for any reason you requested a refund from PayPal and the outcome was not in your favor, the involvement of any third party to interfere, i.e your bank or credit card processor, is a direct violation and breach of this user agreement and will be considered void. You agree that any funds withheld or deducted by your bank or credit card processor will be immediately released upon review of this agreement.
Refusal of Service
If at any stage of any PR Campaign HTL Consulting Group Artist recognizes unprofessional behavior from the artist or lack of respect for personnel time, radio interviews or anything that might hurt or damage our brand, our partners brand or relationships with the company or its associates or partners, HTL Consulting Group Artist PR reserves the right to terminate the campaign without warning or prior notice.
