Q: Why should I have my song evaluated?

A: Your family and friends will always think your songs are great. Publishers and producers are not your family or your friends. The industry standard set by professionals is a high bar.
Several times a year I teach songwriting seminars. Inevitably, I’m approached by attendees who ask if they can give me a copy of their demo or fully produced CD to get my opinion. My response is always the same. After having spent money going into the studio and now not being able to change anything without going back into the studio and spending more money, it really doesn’t matter what I think. ;-(
In other words, the best advice I can offer any songwriter before going into the studio to demo their song or to produce a full CD is to take the time and spend the money to first have their work evaluated by a professional. It will be an investment well spent.
In doing so, you will get suggestions and input based on industry standards. By taking those notes, committing to the time demanded and doing the hard work to re-write, fine- tune and polish your work, the end result will be the best it can be. Then and only then would I recommend spending the money to produce it.
