SERVICES WE OFFER:

 

PACKAGES

 

We offers four (4) subscription packages. Each package’s initial sign-up fee varies and covers the first two (2) months. After the first two (2) months are complete, the customer is then charged $10.00 per month automatically via PayPal’s automatic / recurring payment collection service. This subscription fee is automatically charged to the customer at the same time each month and can be cancelled at anytime either by contacting our company or going directly through PayPal. PayPal will send a confirmation email each time that your payment is automatically submitted each month. After a package is submitted, its details are reviewed by our team (process can take up to 48 hours). If the package is accepted, the artist is then billed via PayPal to pay & start the subscription. Once payment has been made and accepted by our company, the track will be added to our platform within 72 hours. Each packages comes with varying benefits including airplay (for your submitted track) on our station, social media promo, website promo/listing & other features. To see exactly what features come with each package, please visit the PRICING page on our website. While stated on the packages that we will follow you on various social media outlets, that can vary due to high demand and limitations on the number of accounts that are allowed to be followed. If we do follow you, we can also unfollow you at any point in time. Only one (1) track is allowed per package. At the conclusion of the initial first two (2) months, we will notify you that your track is expiring and give you the opportunity to submit a newer one. The number of plays for your track on our station will reduce in third month and continue to reduce to make room for newer artists and tracks. Each month that your subscription fee is paid, you will get an individualised promo post published on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter pages. Please not that if you have multiple tracks playing on our station, the guaranteed number of plays for each might not be reached because the DMCA (governing body of online radio stations) rules, that our station abides by, limits the number of plays per artist, per track in a set amount of time. 

 

PROMO

 

Whether earning it from the package you ordered or buying it separate, we offer various promo types. (1) Instagram - A page promotional post that is published on our account (@thegradio) & a story promotional post, also published on our account.
