We found out a couple of days ago Show4me has been featured on the (real) Billboard. We were very pleased to hear this since we are the first & as yet the only record label organising concerts utilising the Show4me platform & are exclusive representatives of Show4me also. In spite of what you may read Show4me are the market leaders in crowdfunding concerts & the first platform to offer the concept of funding shows by engaging friends, family & prospective fans or established fans of artists involving them in the experience of being involved in a more tangible way to the shows they are supporting rather like people used to do in the good old days of hunting for music in record shops, buying vinyl & later on cd’s.
There was something very satisfying in this because people had to make some effort & time as well as money to support the music makers who rely on their support. Music is a very expensive & time consuming business & through platforms like Show4me we endeavour to engage people once again to make that commitment.
It is extremely hard to raise interest in unknown artists with little or no fanbases but all the time & effort is paying off with our first campaign being a success. It is a huge bonus for our unknown artists to get a mention in prestigious publications such as Billboard by association with us too so a win win for all.
We have been with Show4me from the beginning & whilst we have encountered much resistance towards this model the industry, in our view, needs to adopt a more sustainable business model & we see Show4me as the game changer. As part of Show4me we are helping to grow the platform. More news soon.
