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

Music – Two Chords by Invisible Hand – GigDog Charlottesville
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.
“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.
