Influencers campaigns can be fickle and eat an entire budget with little results to show for it.  Our proven system helps save budgets from being wasted on campaigns that don't work and maximize ones with serious potential.

MAKE US A PART OF YOUR TEAM

We're more than an agency, we become partners that help you move smarter, stronger and faster.

We Pay Attention To The Details So You Don't Have To 

Managing all that comes with building an artist's career is tough. Marketing speed and agility are important, but a lot of time must be invested to understanding when, where and how to maximize every moment. 

We give real-time insights and content recommendations, combining our insight on your goals, campaign data and deep knowledge of current and upcoming trends.

We Understand Content & Culture

Advertising is powerful, but without the right content (delivered in the right way) you'll only achieve a fragment of the potential growth you're capable of. 

As the creative minds behind several viral trends, we know how to make content that works the algorithm on every platform.

We Make Artist Development Simple

We strive to help artists connect with real people who will consume their brand long after the first encounter. 

We help artists find their voice on social media and give them the skills to build organic awareness, generate fans and then monetize their audience.

We don't just run campaigns. We solve problems.

We don't just run campaigns. We solve problems.

Nic D felt like "Fine Apple" could be a hit when it dropped if it had the right marketing. We agreed and after a multi-channel TikTok-focused campaign it was clear.  

The song peaked at #4 on Spotify's Viral Music chart as it hit 7 Million streams and labels started a bidding war. 

Seiji Oda has great music but his diversity made it difficult to to establish a consistent base. 

We helped him connect the dots and a year later, his monthly Spotify streams have grown 300% .

24kGoldn needed to bring more attention to City of Angels in order to encourage label support. We leveraged TikTok to accelerate trends that helped the song eventually get to 200+ million streams. 

That success led to several future TikTok campaigns, including helping build a groundswell for his first Billboard #1, Mood

Asi Kemera came to us as a college student releasing her first song in the middle of a rebrand. Armed with a few resources and music she shot on a web cam, we grew a legitimate fanbase for her in less than a month. 

Within a year she’s gotten over 1M streams on Spotify alone and connected with serious management.

Nathan Fouts wanted to mastermind a viral campaign and came to us for help. First he shot a video from his bedroom in Tennessee. 

Next, we activated a polarizing social media PR campaign that got his video covered on the Desus & Mero TV show and shared on Instagram by Snoop Dogg, Drake and DL Hughley. Even greater, Educated did over 1 million streams.

Mannywellz wanted to create a buzz in the United States and Africa. We built out multi-platform campaigns that organically got his song So Good played by Joe Budden on his podcast and his song Floatin being shared on SZA's IG Story. 

We followed that with a viral campaign that made him a topic of conversation in South Africa and Nigeria, being mentioned by influencers such as Sophie Alakija.

Yes! If you would like us to speak with you and your team to discuss problems you are facing and find solutions to achieve your goal, you can schedule a 1 hour call HERE. 
 How do I know if I'm accepted for a campaign?
If you are accepted, you will receive an email from one our team members within 10 business days. 
 What criteria do you use to accept campaigns?
We only run a limited amount of campaigns per month so that is the most common reason campaigns are denied. We also consider music quality and if an artist's brand, web presence and resources are feasible for their goals and budget. 
 Who have you worked with? 
We work with large artists, small artists that just got started and major labels. Some of the artists that we have worked with can be found in our case studies and other lists on this site. However, we would like to stress that every campaign is custom to the artists and the market opportunities that best align with their goals.
