Customers can submit up to but no more than three packages to us (3 total songs) in a 2-month period.

RENEWALS

After the first two (2) months are complete, the customer’s subscription is automatically renewed & charged (USD 10.00) on monthly basis ONLY IF they chose & paid their initial sign-up fee with PayPal. This will occur on the same day each consecutive month until the customer cancels or fails to make the payment. They will have to pay manually if they chose any of our other options (Cash App, Stripe, Venmo, or Bitcoin). Renewals come with (A) airplay at the same spin rate per week that the customer initially signed up for, (B) more social media promo & (C) continued listing of the customer’s stage name, their track title, their online web/social media pages & track download/purchase links on our website (this only goes for Silver, Gold and Platinum Packages buyers). We reach out to each customer 2 - 7 days before their package is either going to expire or renew. In this email, we give them the chance to manually renew (if they chose a payment option other than PayPal). If they chose PayPal, we inform them that they will be automatically charged. Also, in the email, we link them to our track replacement form which gives them a chance to swap in a brand new track. If the customers are currently subscribed to our company with PayPal & being billed automatically but want to opt-out, they can either contact us and we’ll cancel their subscription for them or they can cancel by logging into their PayPal dashboard. Canceling a subscription is free & can be done at any time. The number of plays for your track on our station may reduce in the third month and continue to do so each month (unless a track is submitted to replace it). This makes room for newer artists and tracks, & helps our station not play the same track as much over a long period.

SOCIAL MEDIA PROMO

We include varying levels of social media promo depending on which of our packages that the customer orders. Also, customers can purchase stand-alone promo separate from our other benefits we offer (i.e. airplay). The social media outlets that we do promo on are Facebook (@thegradio247), Instagram (@thegradio) & Twitter (@THEGRADIO). To view exactly what promo comes with each package, please see our 'PRICING' page on our website. All promo posts (excluding stories) that are published on each of our three pages stay there forever after being published. In creating all promo posts, we will use the information, images, videos, music, names, titles & all other content that you either (1) provide us on the submission form, (2) send to us via email or direct message, or (3) that we pull off any of your pages. Any content, that is submitted to us, that is explicit or could come off as offensive will either be censored by us or will not be posted.

OTHER PROMO

Separtely from the social media promo we do, we also do various other promo on our website, on Spotify, and on SoundCloud for artists. To view the exact promo details for each of these three outlets, please see our 'PRICING' page on our website.

SOCIAL MEDIA & OTHER PLATFORM FOLLOWS

While stated on the packages that we will follow you on various social media (Instagram & Twitter) & other online outlets (SoundCloud & Spotify) 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. You CANNOT buy followers, likes, views, comments (or any other types of fake/auto Social Media engagements) from our company. We, also, cannot guarantee that you will gain any followers by joining our platform.

Artists are selected at random for this promotion and must currently be active on our platform. Artists reaching out to us and asking to be selected do not carry any weight or have any influence on the draw. Artists cannot be selected for this promotion more than once. No free bonuses or any other benefits will be award to the Artist of the Month.

TRACK OF THE WEEK

Every Monday, we announce our ‘Track of the Week’ on each of our social media pages.
