Haulix Weekly Update #92 – “Like Punching Someone In The Dark”

Hello, everyone. Thank you for carving a little time out of your busy schedule to spend browsing our blog. We have been working incredibly hard to up the ante for all content produced, and in recent days I think we really outdid ourselves. Before we get to all that, however, we want to share with you a song that has been on repeat all week long. Check it out:

Each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

Development News:

We have no major reveals to share this week, so we’ve decided to share the list we first produced last week that details everything we have on the horizon. Soon, Haulix will be new and improved, including these features…

— Press Release support is coming

— Every mail out will be a “Campaign” with its own stats page

— We will continue to track deliveries and opens and introduce link-click tracking as well

— When creating a Campaign, you will be able to send yourself a test before sending to your clients

— You will be able to schedule Campaigns.  eg. schedule it to be sent out a week after creating it. System will do that automatically.

— Choose from multiple email layout options, change colors and drag n drop images.

— And more…..

We will have more development updates in the weeks ahead.


This week was another crazy one for our blog. We started a new column, ran a great podcast, and shared numerous advice columns that offered unique insight into the modern music business. If you missed anything, use these links to catch up:
