There are 100′eds of ‘want to help’ Unsigned Artists URL’s covering any genre, category or style. They are all FREE to Register and upload your profile. Other services, like making contact, is another matter. No sooner do we register giving our info another such service ‘springs’ up. Just like mushrooms in a forest. Their service is just as their predecessors except now there is an added bonus to ‘entice’. Just like the supermarkets logo ‘buy one get one FREE’.
As I have said in my past Blogs, joining all these sites is like being the ‘lost tribes of Israel’ scattered and lost in the dessert looking for a ‘savoir’. Perhaps an A&R, Label executive, Agent, Scout or someone famous may spot us and offer a deal. A one in a million chance, considering there are over 5 million of us searching for the same savior, listed in the same places with the same people who are looking for the same thing.
Joe Public is NOT there. Joe Public searches for what’s new on YouTube then searches for how to get it, preferably for FREE. So, Joe Public would search for a torrent client or a P2P. Who knows an Unknown Artist? It’s time to give the Unknown, Semi-Pro, Indies and Independents their own P2P Evolution.
The best introduction system to meet ‘other’ professionals in my field has been LinkedIn (although there are many others), but even LinkedIn has to make money. To connect and get the ‘full service’ you gotta PAY! They have to make a living too, right? Servers, people, developers, ISP connections…. it’s not free. We all eventually have to make something to pay the rent and grab a burger at least! Even you, the Unsigned Unrecognized Artist needs to eat. If you sacrifice your food (amongst other things) you need some $$$ to pay for your recording, without that, how you gonna get listened?
So, in reality, unless you part with some dollars you’re back to square one. Some pay, most don’t. It depends what the asking price is for the service you want. It’s a democratic world and we all have choices. I won’t list who charges what as I am sure you all have an idea (if not look up my past posts).
We offer the P2P Evolution!
1) Registration and Uploading a Profile is FREE!
2) Everyone is entitled to a FREE featured page created by us AFTER your Full Registration if you PROVIDE us 2-3 JPG’s (3MB quality with 1 Rectangle pic for Front page), short BIO/Info and a few mp3 samples of your work.
3) Everyone can INTERACT with EVERYONE and ANYONE, hence Artists United, for FREE!
4) Your music will be played on Artists United Radio and if you want to submit programs (if you are a DJ) for FREE!
5) Distribution (selling) your works:- Everyone charges ‘something’. Some more than others and if it’s free, I bet you bottom dollar there’s a catch somewhere.
This is where we use our P2P. The most powerful distribution system there is. To Register for Distribution and EARN from your works it is only $35.00 Dollars + Promotion on one of our 15 Sites. You chose the site. You can become an Affiliate for FREE and EARN your money back plus profit with 3 sales!
Most of you are giving your works for FREE anyway. Allowing your works to be ‘streamed’, played on YouTube without you EARNINGwhat you are entitled to. We don’t agree with this, but hey, it’s a Democracy and you can do as you wish. Think. Do you see a Pro’ giving it for FREE. Do you think LadyGaga’s Label allows YouTube plays for FREE? Wake up!
The idea of ‘All 4-1 & 1-4 All’ works better because it’s put into one big pot and you’re ‘sharing’ as opposed to ‘giving it away’.
With Artists United Luke Music MP3 you can (if you gave it a chance) get DIRECTcontacts, EXPOSEyour works to over 15000 Registered users on the Lukep2p Network, have your works AIRED on Artists United Radio, get LINKED directly from us to your URL from YOUR featured page, get Publishing of your works regardless if you have been turned down!
So, imagine if we are 1000 strong and we ALL help one another in ‘clicks’, ‘Likes’ and so on, each of you could earn £111.00 ($182.00) in Royalties if you played the game like a Pro’. Think about it. It’s logical.
