Artist TESTIMONIALS

  • It’s been very inspiring to learn all these marketing techniques from you and to actually begin implementing them as you’ve taught us to do thus far. It’s instilled a new hope in this band, and we’re incredibly grateful for your help! It’s one thing to read a book or following a course to help you advance your music career, but it’s a completely different ballgame when you’re getting personalized help like this. It changes everything because you actually experience first hand what the possibilities are of making a full time living with your music. We couldn’t be more grateful for what we’ve learned so far. -Pinto and the Bean Chicago Illinois

  • IndieHitmaker not only formulated us an easy portal to report our pre-sales and sales to Billboard but they also went above and beyond to make sure that our sales counted even when other factors came into play such as language barriers with venue representatives and non-responsive venue reps. They were more than attentive via text, phone, and email in a mail chimp/auto-reply world. We felt care for every step of the way. We’ll be using these guys until the end!

  • It felt amazing to chart on Billboard! For a first time user who didn’t know anything about the official charts, Indie Hit Maker made that process smooth and easy. Couldn’t have done it without them!

  • As a Non traditional Artist joining forces with Polyplat records (IHM) has been an AMAZINg journey. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with. Bram and his team are easy to communicate with. The (IHM) team are very hands on and are available to answer any questions via email or phone! Dropkick has been a huge life saver while on live performances. I’m able to utilize direct consumer digital downloads. With No hesitation, I highly recommend any serious artist to Polyplat (IHM)! 

    The drop Sherpa sessions are priceless and well worth the investment. I received more information than I ever expected! There’s nothing like self investment!

  • Indiehitmaker is one of few nice things in the life of independent artists. As for me, IHM is the best thing that happened to me since I was awarded Grand Prix Du Disque in France during heydays of Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd! 

    Until we got to know this unique group of great people, we had no idea how to build a bridge between our humble indie efforts and getting our sales counted. If you are in search of people “honestly” supporting Indie Musicians, join IHM… Thank you IHM, thank you Bram, you all are awesome!

  • Dropkick enabled our artist TROPAKANA to accomplish something not often if ever done by an independent artist. Not only did we chart at #2 on the Single Sales Charts but we were contacted by several label heads asking to sit down with us for meetings. All I can say is thank you Bram and thank you Indiehitmaker for creating Dropkick.

  • Indiehitmaker.com helped us report our Kickstarter, presale, online and venue sales so my latest album release “The Zombie Dinosuar LP” would chart all over Billboard, and it did!  They care about artists. Great working with them!

  • Indiehitmaker provided us with the ability to uniformly report our internet, show and digital download sales and achieve our goal of charting on Billboard. Their team of dedicated representatives was super quick to respond to all our questions and requests. A great service for the independent artist in 2015.

  • Being an Artist for over 30 years, one of the biggest challenges is who to trust. Indiehitmaker made this decision easy for us. Thank you for your top quality direct support and care to make this happen. Truly one of the best services out there, highly recommend it to all artists.

  • Working with Indiehitmaker has been awesome. They’ve been extremely accessible and walked us through all the steps necessary to count our site pre-order’s and live show sales towards soundscan so we can chart across 5 different billboard charts. We’re extremely satisfied and look forward to continue working together.

  • The IHM reporting app is the most convenient thing ever! Beats taping forms to a hotel room mirror at 3am anytime! Much love to IHM for the ingenuity to come up with something like this.

  • IHM helped us make our fan’s purchases, pre-orders and crowdfunding of our album really count without the help of a label, a PR company or paying tons of money to a distribution company. Their system is simple and it worked! We’re so proud that our album President Snakes made it into the top 5 comedy albums in its first week, thanks to IHM’s help!

  • Our choir was so excited to find out that our new album, KOCHI, had made it onto TWO Billboard charts this week!  This success would never have been possible without your company’s help, and we are very grateful to you!  With your assistance we were able to report all our concert pre-sales and make them count towards our charting.  This is something we had never dreamed of doing on our past album.  All your suggestions and quick responses to our questions were SO appreciated and we would highly recommend your company to anyone looking to have the best launch possible for their album.

  • IHM has made a world of difference to The Sixth Generation. While we have always sold CDs at venues and on our website, we never had a way for those sales to be recognized for charting on Billboard. IHM made it possible and we are very grateful!

  • As von Grey hit the road in earnest through 2013, we were reminded of the diverse range of logistics to be managed – tour schedules, hotels, sound checks, performance, merchandise, etc. In the past, we had sold quite a few CDs of our music at shows and didn’t have a reasonable means of submitting our SoundScan data missing opportunities to chart on Billboard. These days, “commercial track record” counts for a lot in the industry. When we initially looked for a service provider to help streamline the SoundScan reporting process, we found that Indiehitmaker’s service could help us get our reports submitted in an orderly and time-efficient way – and get appropriate credit for our actual music sales, never mind wind up on the Billboard charts from venue sales alone. We enjoyed working with the team at Indiehitmaker and believe their SoundScan reporting service is something that could benefit earlier-stage (pre-label) and independent bands who don’t currently have an efficient way of capturing and reporting their live venue music sales.

  • Thanks so much for your workshop at the International Music Conference. Not only did you give us an informative crash course in how to manipulate and command the stage – you also made us laugh and made it very memorable. I think I speak for most of the crowd when I say having you as a performance coach would probably do any performer the greatest benefit in their craft. I hope to work with you in the coming months to iron out some of the “kinks” before I begin performing. Thanks so much again,

  • I really enjoyed panel discussion at the IMC Music Conference with Bram as one of the panelists. Bram offered priceless advice in regards to proliferating your career as a musician. Before, attending the conference, I did not realize the importance of college radio and performing at colleges/ universities. Bram provided information about organizations, whose sole purpose is to find new talent to perform at college campuses across the country, in addition to fundraising functions. Bram also conducted a workshop in which he summed up key movements as a performer and gave the do’s and dont’s of onstage performances. I am so thankful that I was able to hear Bram’s expertise on the music business from the artist standpoint and with his advice, I have the knowledge and skills to take my career to the next level. I highly encourage anyone to attend a seminar where Bram is a guest speaker- I promise that you will not regret it!

  • “How to Make More Money & Fans from Playing Live,” which was presented by Bram Bessoff from Indiehitmaker, was among my favorite workshops at the International Music Conference. After attending this workshop, I gained invaluable knowledge about how to truly connect with my live audience. I believe that I now know how to communicate on a level beyond the words and music, taking our audience on journey and enriching their lives. We have already incorporated Bram’s techniques into our show and we cannot wait for our fans to experience Matrixx of Domination on a higher level. Furthermore, we are looking forward to working with Indiehitmaker on upcoming projects. I have noticed a spirit of excellence from them and that each individual/group is valued like family.

  • Indiehitmaker.com is essential for independent artists. I have worked with the team at IHM for two years and I know that charting on Billboard is a possibility because they have helped me do it before. They make the process simple and repeatable. Indiehitmaker has become an integral and indispensable part of my music career.

  • IHM and the PolyPlat Records Crew are some of the most supportive people I have worked with in the business. As an Independent Artist, things can be very challenging, time consuming and demanding at times; so it’s nice to know that you have someone in your corner to support you.

  • Being in this business is not enough. You have be able to show and prove your presence. And the only way to do that is through soundscan by showing your sales. IHM does just that. They give you all the tools you need to show your sales and prove yourself through the only language that record labels understand these days and that’s $. Great staff that followed through and helped us put up the numbers we had been pulling for years and watched all the labels come running.

  • It has been a great experience working with IHM on the Critical Bill release… We absolutely killed it! Download cards were an easy sell – we currently have the #1 song in Detroit on 89X radio and have been The People’s Choice Champions since the beginning of last week. This was the perfect time to try these download cards, plus we made sure that everyone new the importance of selling these. The venue we played, the Emerald Theatre, was selling our merch and just couldn’t keep up!

  • As an independent band, Modern Skirts is thrilled to know that all of our venue sales are being accurately reported and credited with Soundscan via our deal with indiehitmaker.com! It’s an extremely competitive business that we’re in so it’s not only important for us to show the industry that we’re making a sales impact on the road, but to also gauge how we are doing in markets around the country. It’s quite a useful tool in helping us to grow our band as a business.

  • Venue sales reporting was a component of State of Man charting in the top 40 on the Billboard’s Single Sales Charts for about eight consecutive weeks, even reaching a top 10 position. Had we not been able to report to SoundScan this would never have had happened.
