I was going to send some music to the folks at the website shown below thinking they were publishers, but when I read their website thoroughly I saw that they are "song pluggers" who charge $150/month just to plug (pitch) one song to "Record Labels, A&R persons, Producers, Artists and Managers".
My question: Is this normal to pay someone so much to do this? Are these guys publishers? I can't find anything on their site that says they are, but isn't "song plugging" one of the duties of a publisher? And don't publishers usually do song plugging for free, or even pay songwriters in the form of an advance?
Their website is http://www.jimandjoe.com/index.php.
Most of the pertinent info can be found by clicking on the tab at the top that says Services
and the tab on the side that says rates
Thanks in advance for your time.
