  JOIN THE GIGDOG FAMILY NOW

The true beauty of music is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we, the musicians, are the messengers.  Roy Ayers 

The best way to reach new music fans is with your music.  GigDog wants to promote your music in a manner that gets people off the couch and in front of YOU on stage.  Our streaming music service is focused solely on promoting bands and artists performing right outside your fans front door in the near future.  We provide the musical connection to music lovers that that has been lost through technology.

GigDog’s goal is simple.  Experience the Music!

WE ARE GIGDOG

 

GigDog was founded on a very simple premise. To promote the amazing music of bands that are not being heard. GigDog’s goal is to make it easier for music lovers to become familiar with up-and-coming artists, and to make them aware of the great music experiences happening right outside their door.

GigDog is building a platform where music lovers and music makers can connect to create amazing experiences. GigDog will provide the Marketing and Promotion that artists need to be heard. We will use technology as a tool, not as a destination.

BENEFITS

FanView Report

“You never get a second chance to make a first impression!”  When a music fan discovers and connects with one of your songs, they instinctively want to know more about you.  They want to know more about the talent that has caught their attention.  Years ago, they would grab the Album or CD cover in the hopes of finding more info about the artist.  Today, the music fan looks online.  This is a great opportunity for you to hook and keep a new fan.  Don’t let their first look at you be their last.  GigDog takes a look at your online presence in the same way a new fan would and we then provide you with a FanView Report of what you are doing right and wrong.  We then suggest simple marketing tips on how you can enhance your presence to make it easier for music lovers to find you, engage with you, and ultimately, become a lifelong fan.

GIGDOG PROFILE

Your GigDog profile is a simple snapshot of who, what, and where for any visitor to the GigDog website.  It contains all the basics a potential fan needs to know more about you.

SONG UPLOADS

With the basic account, you can have up to three songs playing at a time on GigDog.  With the premium membership, there is no limit.  All songs are played in a random rotation with a max of 5 different songs per artist being played per day.

GIG UPDATES

This is where we stand out.  A fan can’t see you perform if they don’t know when and where you are playing next.  With the basic account, you can add up to two gigs a month to your profile.  With the enhanced membership, we keep a track of your schedule for you  and make sure every show is posted as soon as soon as it is confirmed by you or the venue.

SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS

Social Media (SM) is where your fans live and so that is where you need to be to reach them.  You can have one SM link with the basic account and there is no limit on the amount of links you can have with a premium account. You get to choose which SM platform works best for you and let your fans know how to engage with you.

LINER NOTES

 This is your opportunity right on the GigDog website to let your fans know more about you as they listen. You can post Lyrics, your motivation for your music or future plans.  Anything your fans would like to know.  Available with a premium membership.  

SONG DOWNLOADS

Here is a great opportunity for fans to take your music with them and play it on any device, and at the same time you get a way to contact them directly.  We collect up to 50 unique email addresses per month of everyone who downloads your songs.  This is a great way to grow your mailing list.  Available with a premium account.
