The Top 5 FAQs

1. What is surveymysong.com?
Surveymysong.com is a website for both independent and signed artists who want to have their music tested by two groups – radio and fans. We provide reputable national charts, song ratings and feedback for research and marketing purposes. Your song will be heard and the results seen by hundreds of fans, radio programmers, record company decision-makers and the industry.

2. How does surveymysong.com work?
Once you submit your song to surveymysong.com, it is sent to radio programmers and fans. They listen to your song and then provide two things; first, they rate your song on a scale of 1 to 100; and second, they provide specific comments about your song. Once this process is complete, our database calculates the average score from all panelists and posts that score (along with the song comments) to our exclusive surveymysong.com charts.

3. How much does it cost to survey my song?

The cost to have your song tested and rated on surveymysong.com is $50 per reviewer. There is no minimum or limit on reviewers.

4. Can you explain the 1-100 rating scale?
Some music rating services use a scale of one to five. At surveymysong.com we feel that a broader scale of 1 to 100 gives the radio reviewer (and the fans) a larger numerical range with which to rate your song. You see, using the 1 to 5 scale, you might end up with three songs that all tied with an average score of 4. So the question is… which of those three songs is indeed better than the other? Using surveymysong.com’s rating scale of 1-100, those same three songs might receive average scores of 81, 84 or even as high as 89. Therefore, the average score your song receives will be uniquely different from all other songs scores and will rank accordingly on surveymysong.com’s charts.

5. What’s the breakdown of the 1-100 ratings scale?

It’s similar to school grades.

90-100 is an A – Radio reviewers and fans “LOVED” your song!
80-89 is a B – They “LIKED” your song.
70-79 is a C – They thought your song was “SO SO.”
60-69 is a D – They “DIDN’T LIKE” your song.
50-59 is an F – They “HATED” your song.

2 What’s the difference between radio ratings and fan ratings?

Well, sometimes radio people like a particular song, but the fans don’t like that song. And sometimes it’s the other way around. That’s why we feature a fans chart AND a radio chart, so that it can be a helpful tool for the artist, the record label and radio to use and compare.

3 If I’m a radio station, how can surveymysong.com benefit me?
In two words – Free research! Surveymysong.com provides song testing results for both signed and unsigned artists that radio can use to effectively program the best music for their listeners. For example, there might be some songs that your station is “not” playing that both radio and fans have ranked high on the surveymysong.com charts. If that’s the case, hopefully we can help bring some of this music to your attention and ultimately to your listeners.

4 If I’m an artist, how can surveymysong.com benefit me?
Based on how much people like your song, you can have a real influence on the success your song receives at radio and in the industry. At surveymysong.com you can see how strong your song really is, determine if it’s ready for radio airplay and find out how it ranks against other songs on the charts! Maybe it will be the top song of the month! Or, it could even be the highest rated song of the year!

5 If I’m a record label or an artist manager, how can surveymysong.com benefit me?
Maybe you’ve just finished producing a new record. Surveymysong.com can help test which song would be the best radio single. Or, if your song is in demo stage and you’re trying to decide whether or not to fully produce it or put it on the record, surveymysong.com can help. Perhaps you’re about to debut a brand new artist that radio and fans have never heard before, surveymysong.com can provide the rating score and comments that you can use in your marketing and promotional advertising. Or, maybe you’ve already released a radio single, its doing well, but it needs some extra push and ammunition through a high rating on surveymysong.com.

Yes you can. If you just completed a new album and you’re trying to get feedback from radio and fans on which song would work best as a debut radio single, or maybe you’re looking at releasing single #2 or #3 and you’re interested in testing several songs together – just submit your single(s) and choose your reviewers.

10 Will the people who listen to my song know which artist they are rating?
No. Your song is sent to our panel of radio reviewers and fans without identifying who you are. This provides a level playing field for rating all songs. Once your song is rated, it posts to the surveymysong.com charts and is then identified by the artist name and song title.

13 Will I see the ratings and comments before they are posted to surveymysong.com?

Yes. Once you sign up and submit your song, we’ll send you a user name and password and you’ll be notified by email every time a radio reviewer has submitted their rating and comments on your song. We’ve designed a custom webpage just for your song so you can view the ratings and comments as they come in. You’ll know who has sent in their feedback and who has yet to submit. It’s pretty cool.

No. Surveymysong.com reserves the right, at its discretion, to refuse any song it deems unacceptable to be surveyed.

If your song is not approved you will be notified and your credit card will not be charged.

18 Do your radio reviewers and fans listen to my entire song?

Yes. We send our radio panelists and fans your entire song. We feel this is important. Unlike other sites that might only test a short 20 or 30-second piece of a song, we send your entire song to be tested.

19 How do you pick the fans?

Fans are chosen based on their interest to participate in our site and for their love of Christian music.

20 Why should I register as a fan to surveymysong.com?
Your opinion counts. You ratings and comments will be viewed by the artist, by radio and by the music industry. Plus, we’ll register you in a monthly drawing to win free Christian music CDs. You can’t beat that! You’ll receive emails every week with songs to listen to, rate and give feedback on. It’s actually pretty fun and takes just a couple of minutes. In fact, you’ll get to hear songs before the radio stations do. The rating you give on each song will be calculated with hundreds of other fan ratings, averaged, and then posted on the surveymysong.com charts. It’s fun to rate the songs and then see where they ended up on the charts.

21 On which chart will my song be seen?
