Absolutely - for just $500 you will have the three most powerful marketing tools available today.
The Internet gives you World Wide distribution, let OrchardTV give you the tools to use it.
• How does it work?
You and three other artists will perform at an OrchardTV Global Live Webcast. Your show will be sent out to the Internet for the World to watch and participate. At the same time we will be recording you in HD Video. Your audio will also be recorded in pristine CD quality. You will be given a Line Cut of the show plus all your separate video and audio files for post editing if you wish.
This gives you lots of options:
- A Line Cut of your show to post immediately to YouTube, Facebook or any other Social Site
- Redit your Video and Audio files for a live HD DVD
- Remix your audio files for a Live CD
• Why will I be performing with three other artists?
Two reasons. 1/4 the costs per artist with up to five times the marketing power.
Performing with three other artists will give you much more marketing power. Every artist/musician in every band promoting their show, will also be promoting your show, and at the same time you will be promoting their show. It's a win-win for everyone.
Throw into the mix the promotion that OrchardTV will do for every Webcast and you have now increased your promotion/markteing to a power of five.
As you can imagine, putting on a Webcast costs quite a bit. Utilizing the power of four artists allows us to produce the best show possible, and still keep the price ridiculously low for you the artist.
