You’ve begun to get some fans, your Facebook Likes are on a steady climb, you want to take the next step and get some good coverage on a blog you have your heart set on. One of the ways to get features on the blogs you want to get featured on is to pitch them exclusive content.
Exclusive content can be your video, new song, behind the scenes video, acoustic session, DJ set or whatever you can think of that would make your audience visit the site you sent it to. What makes it exclusive is this will be the only place you give this content for anywhere from a few days to a week and you will agree to link the blog with the exclusive content for a few days in order to give them the traffic they so desperately want.
This exchange can give you more of a chance of getting on the blog you have set your eyes on. While it may not be smart to immediately run to RCRDLBL, Pitchfork and Stereogum with this knowledge, finding some blogs that fit your size can be another step to getting up to the big blogs
