How to create an in-person pitch

Creating an in-person pitch will allow you to log any pitch you may have made in person. For example, if you played someone a song in person, sent them a CD, or even emailed them songs without using Songspace you would not need to generate a tracked URL in Songspace to log that pitch.

This feature requires either a Creator or Business subscription. To learn more about a Creator or Business subscription, click here.

A Create an in-person pitch from catalog assets

Create an in-person pitch from a playlist folder

 You no longer need to create a playlist folder in your catalog to pitch multiple songs. However, if you'd like to base a pitch on an existing folder, you can do so from the folder toolbar.

A dialog will pop up with several settings and fields. Make sure to go to the In-person pitch tab.

When creating pitches from folders, there are a couple playlist-specific settings to understand.
