Beat100 is here to save the day and hand bands & artists a lifeline in giving one single place for internet users to upload images, videos & mp3’s and showcase & distribute to fans.
Beat100’s brand new artists profile page allows bands & artists to create a mini-website all on one page which documents everything from pictures, mp3’s to biographies. The idea fits in perfectly with Beat100’s vision of uncovering talents and using the social networking site as a launch pad. The artist page is completely free to sign up too & use, the idea also gets behind the artist by having a hire fee for which site users can book bands for gigs & functions which helps boost the profile of said artist in an incredibly difficult industry to crack.
The artist profile page also acts as a press kit for A&R personnel to check out when looking into unsigned bands/singers which benefit’s each party as the quick & simple interface has the potential to cut down the workload of any industry individual. No single website has brought this entire media selection under one roof to the table before, until now.
Artists can also make the most out of using beat100.com other than the artist profile by uploading videos into the Music Chart in a bid to win a share of the prize pool. The social network provides a mass of media hungry site goers eager to discover & follow new artists & bands, history has proven that word of mouth through the social network is by far the greatest power when it comes to pushing bands & aiming to replenish a scene which in recent years has run dangerously dry.
As the country is still flailing in recession, money is still not for frivolously splashing out on plush websites and thankfully for Beat100’s latest creation there is no longer any need too. Beat100’s weekly news articles & press releases will bring further attention to website users with such pieces as ‘Beat100’s pick of the week’ in which the people behind Beat100 choose an act which is thought to deserve a mention & thrust them into the limelight by pinning the said band/artist on the front of the news page and distributing throughout the Beat100 social network.
Along with the stack loads of media that artists are able to upload to a Beat100 profile, there is also the option to have gig listings placed in a column along the page where users can easily follow the progress of a band & also see whether the chance will arise where a live show can be caught.
Beat100 prides itself on showcasing undiscovered talent & see’s this move as the next step in putting real talent back where it belongs, allowing any single person in the world to sign up & choose who should get the recognition deserved by so many.
The internet is moving into a new age where the people have a huge say in what goes on & it is no different when it comes to what music is listened to on the radio & what music videos are seen on the TV. Beat100 allows the people to choose & by creating band & artist profiles have taken a giant leap towards the vision shared by so many.
