Step #1 - Accessing MICCO Directories

First things first, log into your MICCO account. Navigate to the Directories section, which is your magic portal to a world of industry contacts. This is where you'll find that golden Rolodex of playlist curators, music bloggers, radio stations, and other key industry players.

Remember, it's not about who you know; it's about who knows you!

Step #2 - Navigating the Directories

Our directories are designed to be user-friendly and intuitive. Think of it as walking into a record store where every album is meticulously categorized. You can filter contacts by genre, location, and other preferences. Just pick your category, and voila, the contact list is yours to explore.

Pro Tip: Don’t be a genre snob! Experiment and explore contacts across various genres to expand your potential reach.

Step #3 - Diving into Detailed Profiles

Each contact in our directories has a detailed profile. This includes essential information such as contact details, preferred genres, submission guidelines, and social media links. Be sure to read through these details carefully; it's like learning the chords to a new song. You want to get it right before you hit the stage.

Remember, attention to detail can be the difference between a demo in the bin and a track on the air.

You've found the perfect playlist curator or music blogger for your latest track, so what's next? It's pitch perfect time! As part of the MICCO family, we're here to help you craft a pitch that resonates with industry professionals and showcases your unique music journey.
