Music video promotion planning is something every artist must do if they want to have a successful release. But, almost everytime an artist tells me they’re about to release a music video and I ask if they’ve put together a marketing plan for it, the answer is almost always, “No, I haven’t.”

But the messed up part is that these artists spend tons of money and time making the video with no plan for how they’re going to measure its success? This doesn’t make good common, business, or rational sense!

Enter Andy Gesner, founder of Hip Video Promotions. When it comes to music video promotion, nobody knows the game like Andy. With a resume that includes breaking the first major video hits by bands like Maroon 5, Death Cab For Cutie, Paramore, and The Lumineers, Andy Gesner is the man to hire!
