Unsigned bands need funding? Now Unsigned & Independent artists can create funding projects on a site 100% dedicated to new music
Online PR News – 24-January-2012 – – Whotune.com, the one-stop for the new music industry is pleased to announce the addition of a new ‘Fan Funding’ platform to its already impressive suite of tools for unsigned & independent artists.
Now artists can create music projects for funding on a platform 100% dedicated to new music.
Funding on Whotune is unique in that it is the only funding platform that includes unsigned artist Radio stations, live webcam performances, music sales, extensive user profiles, Global Gig guide, contests, free apps, charts & much more!
Whotune Founder & Managing Director Karl George commented: “Traditionally artists have had to create funding projects on sites that have a focus on the broader community, not the music community so the music projects tend to get somewhat lost. On Whotune the funding platform is integral to all of the other tools & features we offer & music is the ONLY thing we do.”
The benefits of this integration are obvious: artists can promote their music sales and gigs, perform live webcam shows & direct fans to help support their funding project while they are there on the site discovering new music.
Artists can create a Project video which tells potential sponsors what the funds raised will be used for; this can range from recording a new single or album, video production, tour support etc. The artist then sets a target for the funding amount & a timeframe in which to reach the goal amount. They then create ‘Pledge’ levels, these can range from $5.00 through to $2000 & they offer different incentives for each pledge level. These can range from exclusive tracks to t.shirts, exclusive concerts or anything the artists thinks will create a fun pledge bonus!
Once the funding goal amount is reached in the time frame selected, the funds are drawn down via Paypal & made available to the artist to complete their project. If the goal amount is not reached No money is taken & the artist is free to try again.
For fans it is a unique opportunity to support artists & help their career in a very real & tangible way.
Whotune is fast becoming the number 1 destination for unsigned artists, Fans of new music and music businesses. Its suite of free tools for music promotion is unmatched and is growing rapidly, check it out on www.whotune.com.
