By |2018-05-12T05:17:24-04:00May 11th, 2018|Categories: Official, Opportunities, Promotion, Social Media Network|

Music Requests This is a rough draft and subject to change some. These features are exclusively available to those on our promotion roster. Also read about Indie Music Force Central Behind the scenes I have been working on the concepts and features for a new Twitter Bot called Indie Music Force. You can send commands to the Indie Music Force Bot because it is a listening software. It’s main purpose for now is Music Requests, so it only has a single command, which I will list later. The command list will be expanded and documented on a special page as I complete them. I believe Indie Music Force will be fun for fans and lucrative for bands and sponsors. Fans Music fans who are not music creators: Would you do a little social media work for rewards like, music downloads, band merchandise or show [...]

Indie Music Force™ - Street and Web Teams Central Indie Music Force are Music Fans and Supporters a Virtual and Real Street Team – Ride Indie Music Bus™ Many years ago, on our first website called ClubKnowledge we had a virtual street team application that grew popular.

Today, the internet offers the road to travel on for both artists and music fans. We already offer many services for artists and believe it would be amazing to offer a platform for the supporters of independent music too. Let the world hear the music fans voices!   New Logo, T-Shirt Design and Flyers As we speak, we are working with Ian Husbands to design all the graphics we will use going forward. We [...]

Five Benefits From Listing Radio Stations With Us

By |2018-05-19T05:32:10-04:00July 11th, 2017|Categories: Internet Radio, Official, Official Directory, Opportunities, Promotion|Tags: , , , |

Listing Radio Stations Back Story Before we get into the topic of listing radio stations, a bit of a story! It all started way back in the year 2000. I was just getting into the independent music scene.  Jody Fadley (RIP) had started a new band called JSR and I wanted to help promote them if I could. MP3.com was all the buzz then. One thing lead to another and I learned about internet radio stations. This excited me greatly, so I began searching for these radio stations. It was very difficult and tedious to say the least! Many websites were no longer active. Many stations didn't support independents or the genres of Rock or Alternative Rock, JSR's sound. Then the idea of a directory of indie radio stations was born. Compiling a listing of stations that had the qualifications [...]

Daily #IndieGrowth Hour What is #IndieGrowth you ask and why daily? It is something new that we will be testing out on Twitter. An hour long daily Twitter discussion or cross promotion event.
