For more than 15 years, Makin' It Magazine has connected independent talent and tastemakers in the urban music industry, resulting in life-changing exposure and opportunities.
🎤 Major Performances
We get indie artists booked to perform in front of thousands of fans as opening acts for MAJOR artists like the Migos, NLE Choppa, Da Baby, and MORE. Artists also get PAID for these performances or receive paid travel accommodations!
💰 Getting to The Bag
We've helped artists secure thousands of dollars in sponsorships, grants, paid features, bookings, sync placements, and other income by connecting them to real industry contacts and the right opportunities.
How does it Work
Every day amazing artists fail because They SUCK at Marketing. So we created a platform to help them manage their own PR and build their brand in the music industry. We took something complicated and made it simple!
📣 The PR Engine
With the The PR Engine all you have to do is open our emails and follow the instructions. Just submit ONE post a month about your music and our system handles the rest.
Unlike other platforms, our algorithm actually works to put your content in front of as many DJs, Managers, Promoters, and Potential Business Connections as possible.
If you have an Active Subscription your monthly updates will also be reviewed for potential media coverage:
- Playlist placements
- Magazine Articles
- Blog Features
- Influencer Reposts
- Podcast Appearances
- Email Blasts
- And other Major Media Coverage
Active Subscribers also receive increased visibility on our site and an SEO Boost to improve their discoverability on Google. Get found by Managers, Investors, and Booking Agents. Get the exposure you need to build a solid team.
In addition to The PR Engine, our company actively partners with promoters, booking agents, and brands to create unique opportunities for independents to gain major exposure, experience, and connections in the industry. These include opportunities to open for major acts, collaborate with established talent, and even receive grants to invest in their music.
Active Subscribers receive discounted submissions for these opportunities with select opportunities being open exclusively for Subscribers.
An Active Subscription to the platform also includes Discounts on marketing services, free events, exclusive content, private feedback sessions, most importantly community. Because being independent shouldn't mean doing it alone!
