West Coast Artist Bigg Cap is announced as the new face of Spaced Out Magazine's IAMSOM movement.
Online PR News – 23-July-2014 – Los Angeles, California – As of July 2014, Spaced Out Magazine has created a new feat in the magazine and music industry. By creating the “I Am Spaced Out Magazine” movement it has given independent artist a chance to have a voice in the industry and another way to promote themselves to their fans. When questioned about it, Rueben Wood the CEO of the company, had this to say: “Most artist don’t understand what’s happening in the industry right now, and if they knew, I think they would be partnering with media companies and marketing companies to help there brand. Right now in the industry major labels are creating partnerships and buying media companies to benefit their artist, so the typical independent artist is fading away. By creating the “IAMSOM” movement it gives artist one of the best promo tools they can have for direct content marketing to there fans. How many fans want to see a magazine with nothing else but news about the artist there into? That’s a no brainier, because most do without a doubt. We are giving artist the opportunity to give there fans something that they will cherish, weather it’s 12 pages or 64 these magazines will be dedicated to the artist and there fans.”
The first artist the company chose to work with was one of there current marketing clients, Bigg Cap. Cap was recently signed to The Orchard/Sony Music Entertainment thanks to Spaced Out Magazine signing a distribution deal with the label. Since him being signed he has been on a non stop press run and getting ready to release his new single “All Of That” from his freshman album SATF. Becoming the fist brand ambassador for the movement gives Cap the availability to create his custom magazine for his fans and supporters. Once the campaign got set underway Cap has been involved in his issue that is set to release July, 22, 2014. This will be the first time Spaced Out Magazine is giving this type of notoriety to an indie artist, but not the last.
With the release of the first volume, it will create a new tool for indie and major artist to connect to their fans on a more personal level. “ We hope to keep creating new methods of promotion and marketing for the music industry and corporate business world. I will work with artist, brands, and companies, to create each issue with as much input from them as possible. Also with creating the designs and layouts for each issue it will prove to be a greater investment and save time ultimately. The reason we choose Cap was because, we needed an artist whose relatively new to prove just how successful this campaign will be. Weather it would be an artist with a small fan base or a large one, the amount of options for this are not limited. Imagine going to shows and being able to give your fans or subscribers, the opportunity to get a one of a kind issue focused only on what you want portrayed or noticed. The magazines could also be an extra addition to merchandise packages, or company care packs, creating a new stream of revenue.” said Wood when asked how would this benefit artist or companies.
