[BROADTIME STORES] - Music Biz Next Week, Store Questionnaires, New Social Assets and More - May 6, 2022


Greetings everyone, 

Happy (post) Cinco de Mayo. Think we celebrated too much so the note is a day late ...🌮🌮🌮

We appreciate everyone who took 5 minutes to fill out our store questionnaires a few months back. These go a long way in helping us share your stories with key personnel at record labels in our weekly notes to them as well as draw attention to your store via our profiles. We're hoping as many stores as possible fill them out. Details on how are below. 

If anyone is attending Music Biz next week, we'd love to connect!

We've uploaded a ton of social media content for you to leverage over the past few days, specifically to promote next Friday, May 13th's releases. A full list of content available is below, as is a replay of last week's Two Minute Clinic on where to find social assets.

As always, we have a list of newly featured preorders and titles we're currently blocking across our sites.

If you have questions this weekend or at any point, we're always here to help. Remember to shoot a note to support@broadtime.com so that your note goes to multiple members of our team. 

Music matters!
Jon and the Broadtime team

Music Biz - Let's Connect! 🗓️

Music Biz 2022

We're heading to Nashville next week for music Biz and can't wait to connect with so many folks in-person for the first time in two years. 

Our schedule is pretty full, but if you're planning to be in Nashville, we'll make time to connect or socialize. 

Send over your availability to jon@broadtime.com and we'll get something on the books! 

We'll be onsite
 throughout the conference Monday through Thursday, with some site visits on tap for Friday.


Reminder: Store Questionnaire: Help us tell your story ✍️

A big thanks to everyone who has filled out our store questionnaire so far. We are sending out another call-to-action to help us develop brief bios on each of our partner stores. These stories are posted on Broadtime.com, and we're also including one per week in our newsletter that goes to over 200 record label executives. 

We feel it’s important to spotlight great indie retailers like you to key decision-makers at the labels as well as anyone visiting our website.

You can see examples of the profiles we've done so far this year on our homepage

If you haven't already, please take five quick minutes to fill out this questionnaire (six very short questions) it would help us tremendously in our effort to gather info and properly tell your story.
