By |2018-09-19T12:26:34-04:00September 19th, 2018|Categories: Contests, Donations, Official, Opportunities, Social Media Network|Tags: , , |

Fans Event Info For the Artist/Band An idea came to me this morning that might lead to getting music fans more involved on social media and promote the idea of listening to new music from the Independent Music Scene. It would require a single merchandise offering and possible donation and shipment from a few acts per week/month. The more bands that are willing to offer up merchandise, the more fans will want to get involved! Some donations may not actually be given out that week depending on what the winning music fan chooses! The artists would ship the merchandise directly to the winner. We would be willing to pay shipping and handling if that would help out!   Goals Reward Music Fan Social Media Interactions Supply Free Advertising for the Bands Build Brand Awareness – Fun place to share & [...]
