Here are some of the artists we are helping "Look for America"
A full integrated conventional and digital media promotion service for the independently minded musician.
Our aim on The Hub is to cultivate the idea of concerts being hosted in intimate venues such as sitting rooms.
We get over 14,000 unique visits to this site every month and currently have around 150 hosts. Every single person on your mailing list or facebook and twitter pages is a potential host. We encourage artists to set up a page on The Hub and then share it to their social media sites.
Artists and hosts can promote their dates here and when an event is posted it will appear on the front page of The Hub and will also appear on our sister site www.flyinshoesreview.eu which is also used by music bloggers and podcasters. This is an excellent promo tool for you to utilise.
Instructions for signing up to both sites can be found on their front pages. If you’d like some assistance with setting everything up then please send me an email and I will help you to get started and guide you through the process. If you’re already up and running then post your events and I’ll feature them on the site.
The Hub is searchable by town, area and country. Current events can be found on the front page or by using the search facility (top left) Hosts are feature members and tabbed on the navigation bar . I suggest you PN and Email to connect with artists and hosts alike (these days advisable to track down a potential host on Face Book too), not everyone checks in here every day).
We are all very friendly here and the idea is that we support each other to find an artist or a host in the area that you are seeking. You can also email me or use the pop up chat link at the bottom of the page and I will help in any way I can. This is all completely FREE to use and is here to help keep you connected with your community.
We run The Hub on traditional principles and all we ask is that if you get a gig through this then please make a donation to assist with the upkeep of the site. There is a PayPal button on the front page and we rely greatly on your generosity if you wish to take that further and contribute monthly there is a Patreon Site and links on the headers, your patronage in both ways is very much appreciated .
We also offer excellent promotion packages at various levels to cover all your marketing needs. Information on this can be found at – www.medicineshowpromo.co.uk
