Is Jango Worth It?


In the past we have told you about Jango and their pay-to-play system. We have even received insightful comments from readers like Krikor of The Walk Ons, who said:
“My band tried the Jango “$30 for 1,000 plays” deal. And the results
were mixed. On one hand, they did play our songs (we did the dead for
two songs) 1,000 times each, and we had a lot of people visit our page
(on Jango), leave comments and become “fans” on the page.
Which is all good, and probably worth the price. As for the promise
that the song would become part of their rotation once it hit a certain
threshold (which ours did), we haven’t seen that happen. Plays have
pretty much gone down to zero since our paid-plays ran out.
So, for a pretty cheap price, you’ll get exposure and feedback, but it
pretty much ends as soon as the money is gone.”

The Music Think Tank have posted their results which focus more on whether they received sales from being involved with Jango. The results are quite interesting and you can take what you will from the findings! I don’t think there is any doubt that this can help introduce your band to potential fans in a very targeted way!
