Tips To Get The Most From Your Songfinch Experience
Ordering a personalized gift before it’s created can be intimidating, we get it. We’ve developed our song submission form and work flows behind the scenes to make sure that every song we deliver is more than you expected. On top of that, below are a few things you can do to get the most out of your Songfinch experience.
Suggest An Artist
One of the most important things you can do to help you get a good idea of what your song will sound like before purchasing is to browse our Song Examples. You can sort by style/genre to narrow down what you’re looking for.
Once you find some artists you enjoy, suggest them during your submission and we’ll match your song with them. If they aren’t available, we will reach out to discuss other options. Generally, our artists don’t change their sound and style from song to song, so what you hear on our site will be very similar to what each artist will produce if they were to create your song.
Stick To The Important Details
These artists do not know you or your situation, only what you provide to us. So try to stick to the point when submitting details and include the most important details that you’d like considered when your song is being created. A lot of people do this as bullet points as it helps them lay out their thoughts a bit clearer.
Read Submission Tips
On our song submission form, we have a section called “Important Tips When Providing Details” that if followed, will help prevent 99% of the minor errors that may happen when creating a personalized song for you.
Name & Occasion Mention Preferences
Some people want the recipient’s name and/or occasion mentioned and others don’t. So we’ve added two options to select whether you’d like the recipient name and occasion directly mentioned in the song. Use this and select whichever you prefer and your artist will be sure to follow those instructions.
Reach Out To Your Artist
One of the things that make us the happiest is when our customers become fans of their artist. There’s just something about making that musical connection that makes our hearts smile. We include social media links to your songwriter on your song page – connect with them, tell them how you like your song, check out their original music and support them if you like what you hear. We work with real, emerging artists from all over the world so your support means a lot to them.
Want More? Add An Extra Verse
We recently added the ability to add an extra verse on to songs. So if you love your song, but may want a few more details included, feel free to add this option on. Supply 3-4 more details and we’ll get an extra verse added to your song. You can add this on via our Add-on Store.
Turn Your Digital Song Into A Physical Gift
All our songs are delivered on a custom URL that is only available to you and whoever you share it with. You can download the song and add it to your phone, and/or stream it from your computer or phone. However, sometimes you need something to wrap so we’ve added an assortment of add-on products including adding your personalized song to a teddy bear or stuffed puppy, 7” hand-cut vinyl record, CD, and sheet music. You can browse these at our Add-on Store, here.
