Can somebody please explain to me why my paid plays are going to listeners who are already my fans?!?!?! If they are already my fans shouldn't jango be playing my songs to them already as organic plays? It doesn't makes sense.... gives me reason to believe that Jango doesn't have as many listeners as they claim. How can I get new fans with my paid plays if Jango is using my money to play a song to a "FAN".... That in my opinion is not cool....... Please Jango if you are listening, give me an answer here! I am 100% sure some of my paid plays are going to folks who have already fan!?!?! It makes sense for me to pay to have you get my music to new ears , but once I earn their approval why am I paying for them to hear me again? I think it goes to show that Jango is all about making money for Jango and you dont really care about your emerging artists....

I agree with Anonymous of 23 Dec....I am not interested in having an account in Jango if songs are not played to people who are NOT yet fans - i.e. our music should reach a fresh audience otherwise what is the point of it all?

Jango always listens ha ha so if you are whinging maybe you should look at your music if it is great it would go viral as people would foreward on your tracks
but congratulations to Daniela great Brazilian music

How did you ascertain that paid plays are going to your fans?

Anonymous said...

look at it like this guys. if your fans keep hearing your music and you are always fresh on their minds, then they are eventually going to buy. In some cases, its a good thing. If you are spinning a lot of plays each month then the ratio should be well enough to where it doesn' matter as much. Remember, once you get the fans, you need to find a creative way to keep their attention to squeeze them in. This is only if you want to sell your music.

I am the poster from December 23rd....... To the person who asked how I am sure my PAID plays are going to "FAN", because I have had several instances where listeners who are already my FANS have posted comments about songs that were currently in alloted play mode. Each time this has happened I have not had ANY organic plays listed for that song on the day that it happened. Trust me I am 100 % sure this is true.

Vlad said...

Maybe the system distributes plays based on whether or not you've heard a song (not artist). This would make sense given how pop score works...It's about LIKES, no?

This would mean a fan could hear more than one of your songs in play mode.

Can anyone comment on this?

Congrats to the top 10. We're aiming for your spot.

You want your fans to hear your stuff as much as possible to keep you fresh in their minds. also, keep adding new material to keep their interest.
I think what Ive learned this day in time is this.
You have to keep adding new material sooner and more and more than you used to years ago. It used to be that you put out an album and you didn't have to for almost two years. To get people interested and fresh with you today, you have to do just this. I don't think its a bad thing that ones plays are playing again to existing fans. The fact that they are still fans says a lot. You are building a relationship with them and as it takes a little longer than main stream radio, it still works.
We all know on here that main stream radio is payola in most cases and somewhat fake. That is pretty obvious. No offense but take Justin Bieber as an example.

I wouldn't worry about it.
