This month music industry conference MIDEM returned to Cannes and saw twenty finalists from around the world present their platforms and tech. Stagelink was one of these companies and the well deserved winner in the category of Marketing, Social Engagement & Monetisation Solutions.
These days, there are a tonne of internet celebrities being sucked into the social vacuum of Instafame, with all types of personalities receiving accolades for their unique content on almost every platform out there. Having a solid following on social media is great, but monetizing that audience can be a task unachievable by many. Stagelink helps those with a fanbase on YouTube “crowdsource” tours and events where they can sell tickets via pledges. The company helps emerging artists understand their demand and who wants to see them and where they are, which then allows these people to plan tours and shows that are more likely to be successes.
After signing up and having a play around I can safely say this is a pretty slick platform which offers a well needed service to emerging artists who understand the power of self promotion. If you were to leverage Stagelink in conjunction with a well planned social media and Youtube strategy you could quite possible accelerate your career path and be on the road living the dream in no time.
