Client Reviews/Testimonials

“We have worked with HIP for years and years now. Andy, Rob & company are the best at what they do. They have worked tirelessly for our bands and videos. I highly recommend working with them.”

“I challenge you to find a team as motivated, as enthusiastic, as eager to go to bat for your artists’ music videos than the team at HIP. We have been working with them on and off for years and always return back to Andy and his crew for their fierce passion and diligence on every campaign.”
Jamie Coletta
SideOneDummy Records

 

“Based on our experience to date, I can highly recommend Andy and his team. I have been consistently impressed with the regular and thorough level of communication emanating from HIP Video Promo, and the standard of their written content has been genuinely noteworthy – not something I mention lightly. In terms of specifics, HIP delivered a highly valuable premiere with mtvU for an artist in the EDM area, as well as great exposure across dozens of terrestrial TV outlets, retail locations and fitness centers. Their services represent excellent value for money; I will certainly utilize them again in future.”

“Andy Gesner and HIP Video Promo are the type of exception to the rule that I can get behind. They deliver honest, effective services and pay a lot of attention to every artist they work with. They also are ravenously passionate about music, and as such are all about the music, not just the industry. The real deal.”
James Moore

“I have been in the music business for more years than I would like to admit. I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with tremendous talents and songwriters from AC/DC and Meat Loaf to Rob Friedman and Bob Halligan Jr. Five years ago I was introduced to Andy Gesner and HIP Video Promo. and discussed working with them on promoting an inexpensive indie video titled “I Love Porno” for my client Medium John. With no expectations I hired them and to my surprise within 120 days we had over a 100,000 views on YouTube. Andy and his team got our video played on numerous outlets, many unknown to me but good enough for us to create an important buzz. With tens of millions of videos in the marketplace, most never seeing the light of day, or getting less than a 1000 YouTube views, I can sincerely say Andy and his team did an amazing job. Go Andy Go!”

“I have worked with HIP Video Promo on projects for almost a decade now, since Metric’s first self-release campaign when we had no label and desperately needed someone to handle video promotion for us in the USA. We did our research, and decided on HIP Video Promo. They are very selective, only promoting bands and artists they’re genuinely passionate about, but any time we’ve been lucky enough to have them on board, we’ve never been disappointed. They take pride in their work and are tenacious in their pursuit of the most coverage possible for everything they take on, and are especially excellent when it comes to providing very granular, detailed progress reports. They also take care of all the mind-numbing technical aspects when it comes to video encoding and duplication specs, which is otherwise a nightmare. They truly know what it is to be indie, as they’ve been living it for a very long time. I highly recommend them

“HIP Video Promo not only promoted our music video to a new level of exposure, but they went above and beyond to seek new and faithful fans for our music. Rarely have we come across a company that fights for and inspires their clients as much as HIP Video Promo; their enthusiasm and work ethic is infectious.”
Nalani & Sarina

 

“It was an absolute pleasure working with HIP Video Promo. While they’ve been established in the industry, when you talk to Andy Gesner and the entire team there’s an excitement there that makes the company seem brand new. I really felt like they were as invested in the success of the video as I was; the amazing placements my video got were a reflection of their determination. I can’t thank them enough for all of their hard work & I look forward to working with them on many more videos!”
Will Jay

 

“After five years of working with HIP Video Promo, I’ve seen dedication, flexibility and something that isn’t often found on the promotions side of this industry, honesty. Andy and his crew help maintain your artist’s credibility while finding the balance to exposing their work without compromise. Both from the SonyMusic Independent Network and Creative Entertainment Network sides we can highly recommend using HIP Video Promo to help be a part of the creation of multiple visual impressions, the kind of exposure that it takes to create ownership, in the building of an artist’s fan based career.”

“HIP Video Promo delivered extensively for Paper Pilots, landing our “The Weather” music video at dozens of terrestrial and online outlets. Many new eyes and ears got to us through Andy and his team’s efforts. The coinciding social media campaign grew our numbers dramatically as well.”
Justin Bocchieri
Paper Pilots

 

“HIP used many great channels to put our music in front of new fans, including the mtvU Freshman Competition, to which they got us in and helped us win. Andy’s enthusiasm is off the charts. We’d recommend HIP Video Promo to anyone looking to promote a video!”
Bruce Ravid

“I couldn’t be happier in deciding to work with Andy and the HIP crew. Not only was my “Love Sick” music video exposed nationwide via various television programs, across fitness facilities, on mtvU, music blogs and more– but I saw a huge boost in my numbers across every social media platform as well! HIP’s enthusiasm and work ethic is unparalleled and I cannot wait to bring them onto the team for the next music video!”

Laney Lynx

 

“Andy and the great people at HIP Video Promo came highly suggested from people I know in the business. After looking into HIP online and digging into what people were saying and the results they were enjoying, I easily saw why they were so greatly suggested. Many, many different outlets were raving about the success, the method, and the logic into HIP’s video promo savvy. I worked with Andy and his team for 10 plus weeks and was very, very pleased with the results they were able to secure for my music videos. Both videos I promoted with them, “Ice Skating” and “Your Name”, were seen by a lot more people than they would have otherwise. “Ice Skating” was even featured in the mtvU Freshmen contest, and the support and love I got from my fans really shined, all because of the work of HIP. I highly recommend , and I am extremely happy with what they were able to do for me.”

Liam Gerard

 

“I have worked with Andy over at HIP Video Promo on a number of music video projects and he consistently impresses me with his hard work, level of dedication and overall enthusiasm. Through my experiences, I can a-test to the fact that he consistently delivers results and this, along with his infectious positivity, leaves me always look forward to the next project and the chance to work with HIP Video Promo again. A recent project we worked on together for Hip Hop/ Pop artist Nick de la Hoyde and his video ‘By My Side’, resulted in a placement with mtvU and high rotation across 900 universities in the USA. Value for the money, results driven, and a pleasure to work with; what more could you ask for?!”
Chris D / Director

“I’ve talked off and on with Andy over the years about different video projects and the timing just never quite lined up until now. Andy and the HIP team worked like hell to help me fully understand the world of video promotion and will definitely be my go-to for video promotion for years to come. He’s passionate about his craft and after being able to finally meet at SXSW this year, I’m confident that my projects are in the right hands.”
Nicholas Roberts

 

“Andy and his team created a very positive and enthusiastic atmosphere around our music video campaign. We have had many campaigns over the years with various PR firms and HIP Video Promo takes the cake hands down. I never felt we were passed off or put on the back burner. They really care about the people they are working with and most importantly they love music.
Ryan Heise

“Andy and his team did an amazing job promoting our music video. In addition to getting our video onto numerous TV and Internet channels, through their work our video landed a regular rotation spot on mtvU where it is being played on college campuses across the country. Another impressive thing about HIP is their communication. No matter when I posed a question to him and his team, Andy would reply the same day almost every time. A great experience all around.”
Rob & Elliot

“HIP Video Promo has done way more than we expected. We were added to 36 different networks, MTVu, MTV2, MTV Latin America to name a few. They kicked ass for us on social media too! Andy gave us full reports all along the campaign , and even answered all my phone calls. Great guy! We will continue to use them for every video we make.”
Eric Snyder

“HIP Video Promo proved to be the best service we used to promote our Hannah Gill video “I Feel Awake”. We used several others, including a high end publicist, and no one compared to Andy and his team. The highlight was getting Hannah’s “I Feel Awake” video placed in The Freshman competition on mtvU and winning! This has really helped us, not only with video plays, but general recognition (we now have over 100k views). We were also added to VH1 and CMT. I’m really looking forward to using HIP Video Promo for our next release in early September!”

“HIP Video isn’t just a promo agency for indie videos, they are fellow fighters of the good fight. I love working with Andy and the gang because their old-school punk sort of vibe. It’s that feeling as if we’re all in this together. They love what they do and the enthusiasm is infectious, both for me as their client and for the people they are pitching my videos to, which yields amazing results. I wouldn’t work with anyone else!”

“Working with Andy, Rob and everyone else over at HIP was a great experience for Time Will Tell. The guys over at HIP are some of the most genuine people I have ever met in the Industry. They are basically available and at your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But more importantly, they are great at what they do. They are extremely well connected and if they promise you results, you will see them! Right now, Time Will Tell has a music video airing around the world on mtvU thanks to everyone over at HIP! I think that what really makes HIP a great company to work with is that they are all musicians themselves, who genuinely want to help other musicians. After working with HIP to promote our first music video, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t use anyone else for future video promotion.”
Christopher Minor

“Andy Gesner and HIP Video Promo are the best in the business, hands down. If you are looking for exposure for your music video and you happen to be lucky enough to have HIP feel it’s worthy, throw a party! What Andy and HIP did for our music video could not be replicated by any other company. HIP Video Promo is run by industry vets and true professionals. Do the research and I guarantee you will circle back to HIP. Best third party Indie experience to date.”
Isaac Gordon

“I decided to get some professional help with my new video and did some research. There were a few things that made HIP Video Promo stand out from the start – honesty, friendly approach and hard work. They are so many other companies that give false promises and at the end of the day don’t care much about your video. HIP are the total opposite of that – I received a tailor made campaign specific for the video and type of music I make, and I was kept in the loop the whole time. The goal was to expose my new single and myself as an artist to a completely new audience and they succeeded in doing that 100%. Can’t wait to work with them again for my next video.”
Emil Hadji Panzov

“We have used HIP Video Promo to promote the accompanying videos for singles on numerous Billboard-charting releases. Each time, we are reminded why. They make it possible for us to concentrate on the business of making hit music, and charting with it. Our videos show up in all the right places for their efforts, and we receive timely, detailed reports to back up all their hard work. Andy, Rob and their team are definitely a part of our winning game plan.”
Douglas MacDonald

“We couldn’t have been happier with our experience working with HIP. They work hard and seem to genuinely care about or be interested in the bands they work with. Andy (the head of the company) is a musician himself, and kindly entertained our longwinded bitchy whining about ‘the game’. Good folks.”
Michael Henry

“HIP Video Promo is an absolute dream to work with. Andy was never to busy too accept a phone call and always provided prompt responses to my email enquiries. They were involved with our music video from before production even began, all the way to it’s feature on mtvU’s The Freshman. They provided helpful advice and instruction along the way, and were on top of our campaign from start to finish. Their passion for what they do was unquestionable. I could not be happier with the experience.”
Will Sherrer

“This was the first time ever using HIP Video Promo for my new music video and to say the least, they were extremely helpful. They had the passion, the constant communication and the skills to successfully promote my new music! After years of working with different people in the music industry, HIP Video Promo was the most pleasant of them all. I never felt like they were lost and most importantly that I was lost, they were spot on the entire time! I highly recommend working with them.”
Rebecca Perl

 

“Andy and his staff at HIP Video Promo did an awesome job promoting our three videos from our last album, Northern Lights & Southern Skies. They secured us adds across the web and even some of the ever-coveted television spots. Going forward, we can’t imagine promoting an album without HIP on our team!”
Jason Shields

“Working with HIP Video Promo has been fantastic for all of us at Summertime Dropouts! Our relationship has been nothing short of beautiful. We’re talking, “I’ll never let go, Jack” beautiful. In fact, once and awhile Andy accidentally calls me “Rose” on the phone (Titanic joke if you haven’t figured that out by now). But seriously, these guys rock. They’re dependable, hardworking, organized, and efficient. They shoot straight with you and aren’t going to blow smoke up your rear end like some of the other guys in the game. They’re just honest hardworking people that get the job done. Thank you Andy and everybody else at HIP Video Promo for all your hard work on our behalf.”
Joshua Stoll

“HIP Video Promo was worth every promotional penny I spent with them. I do not work for HIP, nor am I receiving any compensation for my review. I am just a happy customer who feels that the promotional dollars I spent were worth while, and beneficial to my musical career. Andy and his team are dedicated professionals who care about moving musical careers forward. They certainly were for me. Andy and many of the team players made themselves available for any questions or concerns I had by phone. That is a rare, and valuable benefit that cannot be overlooked. In fact, HIP exceeded my expectations in terms of promotion for One Man Rock Band and I will continue to be a loyal customer. If you are lucky enough to be chosen to work with HIP, do it. These guys will kick ass on your behalf.”
Scott Gerling
One Man Rock Band

 

HIP Video Promo really took care of us and our video “Romantic Soldier”! Thanks to them, we have been featured on many platforms we wouldn’t have reached without them, including winning the mtvU Freshmen competition They are serious workers, very communicative and sensitive to the client’s needs. Our video and our name got shared on a whole new level, and more opportunities can open up for us now moving forward. Andy’s a lovely guy, who followed up and updated us constantly. We’re definitely happy with our experience with HIP Video Promo, and we do recommend working with them.

“It’s been a great pleasure working with Andy Gesner and his team at HIP Video Promo! From our first phone conversation I knew Andy was a genuine guy who has his clients best interest at heart. I had worked with another company previously and Andy’s team was a cut above them on every level to say the least. Andy is always accessible, upbeat, kind and willing to spend as much time making sure you understand what the campaign is doing at any given time during the promotion, and he follows up regularly with reports on exactly when and where your videos are being programmed. HIP Video Promo also sends screenshots when available so you can see what your video looks like on the many internet sites that are featuring your music video. Andy and his team have gone above and beyond my expectations. This was a great investment in my career! I couldn’t be more satisfied with their services and look forward to working with them again in the near future.”
James Doré

 

“I signed up with HIP Video Promo not knowing what to expect, just hoping not to be disappointed. Any aspiring artist can tell you there are thousands of phony businesses out there claiming to do what Andy Gesner of HIP promises. Let me tell you, these guys are the truth! I began my campaign with a small local Facebook following and enough music for three albums. After a ten week campaign in which Andy and his crew made my Reverbnation page, I sit here with over 109,000 listens and over 3,000 fans! All legit, real people that actually listened to my creations which is all we as musicians desire right? Along with the social media following I was honored to have Andy and his crew present my newest video to major media outlets. “Indigo Child” is now being played and viewed on 20 different media outlets and has over 30,000 views on Reverbnation. Could I ask anymore as a upcoming artist trying to make a name for myself? I think not. On top of it all Andy and his awesome crew are not only hard workers, but good, genuine, honest people. They have more than earned my loyalty and respect and the success of my career will be largely the result of working with HIP Video Promo. I plan to work with them a long time.”

“If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound? If there is nobody there to hear it, how would you know? When you create a music video, it instantly becomes the falling tree in the woods. It can be the most amazing production ever created, but if there is nobody there to experience and enjoy it, it will be appreciated by no one. A possible waste of creativity, time and money. Enter HIP Video Promo! HIP did all of the work for me! Social media? Who has time for that? Not me! Nor do I have the energy. When I hired HIP, they took complete control. Before long, my video was being played by video programmers that I didn’t even know existed. HIP got my video on Reverbnation at which point it was viewed by a staggering amount of people worldwide. Not only did I acquire a couple of thousand fans, I also got to watch my video climb up the local video chart to the #1 ranked position. A truly amazing feat! Every two weeks I received airplay reports which let me know exactly where my video was playing. Full disclosure at all times! Thanks to HIP, my video was not the silent falling tree in the woods. My song and video has made more noise than I could have possibly imagined and will hopefully play every Halloween; becoming that Halloween song of the future that I have always dreamed it could be.”
Mighty Matt Saladino

 

“I wanted to start off this testimonial by saying Andy is a incredible person to work with. I’ve never seen a person so enthusiastic and passionate about their job… you can tell he truly enjoys what he does. I had the opportunity to work with him promoting my “Zombie Nights” music video and I was amazed! My video was featured on so many different well known sites and all my views increased. I had other indie artists like myself message me asking to do songs with them and many other different projects as well. I am forever grateful for all the hard work HIP Video Promo has put in for me and I’m looking forward to working with HIP Video Promo on my next music video.”

“After launching our AV Super Sunshine self titled CD earlier this year on non-com and college radio via a well established radio promoter we discovered how fickle and diverse this format was and failed to get any real traction. We realized we needed to be on triple A rock radio, however the entry costs were expensive and we weren’t sure it would pay off. Instead, my partner learned of HIP Video Promo. We read and discussed all of success stories HIP has achieved for other artists and learned that HIP’s standard fees offered a better approach to keeping our expenses in line with our budget. I must say we were very excited to work with HIP and Mr. Andy Gesner’s team right out of the box. The results have been far better than expected. We have grown our fan base by over 50% in a little over 60 days. In the month of June our “Baby Goodbye” video will be broadcasted in about a dozen major markets to a potential 15 million homes. Awesome! We’ve also had great success with the help of HIP in the retail pool market which adds an additional 3 to 4 million eyes this month. Killer! Our Reverbnation page has seen unbelievable attention achieving 32,000 song plays, 13,000 video plays and almost 2900 new fans and our Facebook page is getting more attention then ever. I have personally answered thousands upon thousands of fan requests and correspondence and have learned so much in the process in regards to managing fans and learning their tastes. Because of everything we’ve learned from HIP and from the new fans and attention HIP has brought we were also able to formulate a much better plan of how to go forward. We have since attracted the attention and help of a heavy hitting management firm and have just completed a 7 song live performance video for concert promoters. We’re also about to film another video with a much better understanding of how to make it more universally appealing and affective for building more success. You bet we’ll be using HIP to promote it when it is finished. Best part, we have been able to to do all of this at a budget less than it would have cost to just try out triple A rock radio. To sum things up, we were frustrated before coming to HIP, but since we now seeing a sustainable pathway to a bright future. I don’t know what else to say except, HIP rocks and Andy Gesner rocks even harder!”

“Andy Gesner is not only a consummate professional, he takes on projects with a unique and infectious enthusiasm that makes the video promotion campaign fun. A musician himself, he knows and understands the musician’s journey and has a wonderful passion for creatively promoting Independent Artists. During my campaign, he generously gave his time, business advice and support. It was exciting to have HIP Video Promo garner airplay from send outs to an extensive list of outlets as well as create a social media buzz around my music. I look forward to working with Andy and his Team again on the next project!”
