We are constantly asked, how can i get my music featured on iTunes?"
The iTunes editorial staff may feature a title in several ways:
- On the appropriate genre page
- As a free Single of the Week
- As the appropriate genre’s Free Discovery Download

- On a weekly New on iTunes podcast
- In iTunes Essentials
Getting on the front cover of iTunes within your genre can really push sales, as the digital traffic passing through this store every day is huge. Any artist is entitled to get on the front page of iTunes and here at Ditto Music we can do all the paper work for you.
If you wish to apply for iTunes promotion you will need to upload your content and get everything over to Ditto at least 8 weeks before your planned release date. Once this is completed we need to following from you:
1. A Physical Copy
2. A Physical Press Kit
