What is Wavo Boost, and how can I view my results?
Boost is a promotional tool that allows you to get your track featured on our publisher network, which includes respected music sites like Consequence of Sound and Hype Machine. Boost can be a great way for up-and-coming artists to reach a new base of potential fans!
Boost is not a play-for-play service. It is designed to increase online exposure and visibility for artists & their new material.
To view your statistics on a Boosted track, click on the track, and then on the "Boost Stats" button. You will be able to view all of the sites on which your ad was hosted, as well as the number of impressions it's generated on each site.
What genres is Boost for?
Boost publishers advertisements on sites that cater to audiences from all genres. To learn more about the different acts we've run campaigns for, please check out some of our case studies: https://wavo.me/pages/blog.
If you check our any of the listed publishers, you will see a 'Top Trending Music' section sponsored by Wavo. This is where all of our boosted tracks appear. Tracks boosted with Wavo are part of a "playlist" that shuffles with each page refresh. Your track will have approximately 1000 views per $1 boosted. For example, if you boosted for $50, it would receive approximately 50,000 views across these sites.
An "impression", sometimes called a view or an ad view, is a term that refers to the point in which an ad is viewed once by a visitor, or displayed once on a web page. The number of impressions of a particular advertisement is determined by the number of times the particular page is located and loaded.
Your song is advertised across a number of top music publishers included in our Boost network. If you check your stats you can see the specific number of impressions generated. Please note that Wavo is not a pay-for-play service. Pay-for-play type services do exist, but are generally against the terms of most platforms as they artificially generate plays.
The receipt that you were sent reflects what you're receiving and not what you're paying. If you check out your credit card statement, you'll see that you received the discount.
Basic campaigns start at $5 per day and reach a maximum of 5,000 fans.
Premium campaigns currently run for around 2 weeks, reach about 500,000 music fans and cost $400. These campaigns are set up with our account managers, target specific high quality websites/blogs, and are constantly optimized to reach music fans in the most effective way.
We do not have enough advertising inventory to offer free Boost campaigns.

We take allegations of cheating very seriously, and look into every report we receive. We have a system in place that automatically informs us of vote manipulation, but wait until we're able to verify the report before taking action. In cases where cheating is evident, the user will be flagged and their votes removed at the end of the competition. If a user is found guilty of violating contest rules on multiple occasions, their account may be deleted. If you'd like to report a user, please email [email protected]
I have received a cheating notification
Please note that these emails are automatically generated by our system. We check each entry manually at the end of each competition. Any fake votes are removed at that time.
We understand that sometimes these votes are not encouraged by the artist, but please do your best to ensure that your friends/family members are not advertising your material on pay-for-play platforms or purchasing votes for your submissions. Generating fake votes through pay-for-play services, spam or any similar platforms will result in having your track removed from the competition, and in suspension from future competitions.
The artist's team is responsible for selecting the winner(s). It is usually based on metrics like votes, creativity, song selection, mastering and overall quality. They are looking for the best fit at the event/for their label.
As the judging process is conducted by a third party (the artist's team), it's difficult for us to comment how long it will be for a winner to be announced. Generally it takes 2-3 weeks for a winner to be selected, contacted, and announced, though this can take up to several months in some cases. This is subject to variation, depending on the number of submissions received.
This issue has likely arisen because you have a pop-up blocker installed. Please make sure that any extensions you have are temporarily disabled while you operate the site.
The stems for most competition have been whitelisted for the duration of the competition, meaning that the use of the song has been cleared by the label. If you choose to post your track online after a competition has ended, we cannot protect it from being removed for copyright infringement.
Not all competitions allow submissions through all 3 - Soundcloud, YouTube and Wavo - platforms. Please check the rules before uploading and submitting your track.
Please contact [email protected] Provide the Wavo link to your submission, as well as a link to the track as it appears on either SoundCloud or YouTube. A member of our team will replace your entry without losing you any votes or plays.
Your friends have likely accidentally skipped a step in the voting process. They will be asked to follow our partner on a social media platform (Spotify, SoundCloud, or Facebook), then asked to share the track. Once they move past these pages (by sharing or clicking "Next"), their votes should be counted. Please refrain from voting on our mobile site, and make sure that any extensions you (or others) may be using, are temporarily disabled while operating the site.
Why isn't my vote registering again?
Our platform only permits one vote per user for the same track.
Sign into your Wavo account, click the dropdown menu in the top right corner, click ‘Wavo preferences, and click ‘delete account.’
You should be able to delete the file yourself by clicking on the track and then on the expand button in the upper right corner of the pop-up. A drop down will appear with a "delete" option.
Wavo accounts can only be linked to personal Facebook profiles, not pages.
Once you've logged into your account, a profile bubble should appear on the top right of the Wavo page. Click on the small arrow to the right of the bubble. A drop-down menu should appear with the option to "Change Profile Picture."
