"As a tool for developing artists, the results we've seen with Web 'n Retail's Spotify Playlist Placement campaign have significantly increased impressions of our singles, streams, listeners and saves. The fact that they market each single for a full 12 weeks in a variety of different ways on Spotify helps give my budget and my campaigns long legs.”
- Jim Martone, Suitable Group
"I've been working with the fab team at Web 'n Retail for about 6 months now on different singles. They have been able to provide an assortment of different services I need, all with excellent results. Most recently I tried their primary Spotify campaign and once that ended, became their willing "guinea pig" for a new Spotify option they were testing (placement on Collaborative playlists). As a result I've had 6 months of continually impressive Spotify results at really reasonable rates. After working with many other firms in the past, I'm so grateful to have a firm I can truly count on for results."
- Eileen Carey, Recording Artist

- Jeff Brody, CEO - Brody Distribution
"That's great Gale!!! We are so pleased with you and your staff!!"
- Barbara Burke, Manager of Shane Burke

"Soles of Passion had engaged professional help with our Social Media several times prior to hiring Web 'n Retail. Sadly, each time, we saw no real progress. Then we hired Web 'n Retail, and all of that changed. Gale's experience combined with her talented crew has helped us enormously in building & exposing our brand. In just 12 weeks Web 'n Retail took our Facebook from 1,054 to 20,173 likes; our ReverbNation rank up to #1 our national rank up from #10,262 to #58 and our Youtube "Cow Girl Bling" Video views went from 0 to over 9,000.”

- Gerald Wiggins - Wiggins Music Group Worldwide Distribution
“…we selected their "Water The Lawn" Package; the price was unbelievable, as was the service, as were the results. They established a large internet presence for our new Company, got us in the Top 10 Google results across a variety of keyword phrases we asked for, and drove Holiday sales so well that we were faced with being able to meet all the deliveries. They even geographically customized the Search Engine submissions and Press eBlasts to Canada only for our Canadian based audience. There is no way that we could have accomplished all this in house, nor would we have ever pulled off these kind of results."

- James Book; NinkasiBrewing.com and topsecretproductions.net

"Having a band on tour is key to selling records for Indie labels. So, when we have a band touring, we figure we have 1 shot to make money. We have found that our retail sales during a tour are increased whenever Rock ‘n Retail handles our marketing campaigns. Plus, the cost for them to hit these home runs is far exceeded by the resulting profits."

“Rock ‘n Retail demands RESULTS, gets RESULTS, and reports RESULTS. We have yet to have a retail campaign with Rock ‘n Retail that we couldn’t see, feel, and hear their RESULTS. What more could you want at the retail level?”

“Rock ’n Retail had worked for one of our bigger labels for years, with great results. When I decided to outsource retail promotion for a title featuring a national artist [Madeleine Peyroux], Rock ‘n Retail mobilized for a campaign I needed ultra-quickly in the heat of the Christmas scramble, and their work really increased the quantities that stores were willing to bring in. Rock ’n Retail’s pricing is more than fair, and their advice is absolutely solid. The vast experience they bring to the retail promotion process has had a really positive effect, even for someone like me that’s been involved in music business for the last 20+ years.”
- David Andler - C.E.O., Morphius Records, Inc.

“I've known Gale for many years and she is one of the hardest working and most honest people that I know. If Gale says she is going to do something, there is no need to worry about her doing the job to the best of her ability. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gale in any capacity...consultant, business partner, or friend. There are very few people in the music business these days with her passion and tenacity to do a job and to do it right..”

“Gale Rosenberg/Rock n' Retail is highly qualified to deliver successful campaigns to all of her clients.

I love your CD and just wanted to let you know that whoever does your marketing is doing an excellent job!"
