Want to book a Broadtime campaign AND get buy-in from more stores? 
Consider booking Coalition Campaigns 

Many of the record stores we work with are in one of three Indie Coalitions - CIMS, AIMS, DORS.
Coalitions operate their own marketing campaigns that often include buy-in from each member store. Broadtime has collaborated with the Indie Coalitions for many years and encourage you to consider running Coalition Campaigns in addition to Broadtime campaigns

Broadtime programs cover over 100+ Indie Record Stores, We also run 28 CIMS Stores, 8 AIMS Stores & 5 DORS stores which are not covered.
To include Broadtime campaigns on some specific Coalition sites, programs should also be booked with the respective Coalition.

Booking a Coalition campaign is a great way to maximize the marketing power of your upcoming release with indie stores.
Our list of non-coalition stores is included below. You may see what stores are in Coalitions on their respective sites.

If you’re interested in booking a Coalition campaign, reach out to the following:
CIMS  -  Liz Boger  liz@cimsmusic.com

DORS  - Carrie Colliton  carrie@recordstoreday.com
