Did you know that millions of fans use MTV every day to learn about artists? Topspin GoDirect is the way you control your MTV page. Now you can update the basic info, BIO, photos, songs and videos displayed on the page. You can also set an artist banner on top of the page (free promotional tool for you!) that links where ever you’d like.
Today Topspin Media announced a new product called Go Direct. (Still technically in beta.) The service is a new platform with a hook into the new artists.MTV site. The Topspin Go Direct platform allows artists to manage the artists.MTV. Topspin has always focused on a 3 point approach for artists to go “direct-to-fan”.
- Grow your fan base
- Communicate with your fans
- Sell your music and merch
To gain control of your page and set it up to help promote your music, your page must be claimed, your Topspin Go Direct account activated and set-up, then your artists.MTV page configured to take full advantage of this exciting new music discovery/consumption destination site.
Not sure how to do all this? No problem. Music Geek Services is an expert Topspin ecosystem partner (heck, we even teach the Berklee College of Music course on Topspin!). We can help you figure this all out and set-up the page to properly promote your music. Just get in touch with us using the form below…
Not since the heyday of MySpace has there been one single go-to destination where music fans can get reliable information about musicians on every front. With so much content out there, and with many musicians’ websites simply not providing an immersive enough experience, fans rely on search engines to find things that are dispersed all over the web including news, blogs, videos, tour dates, biographies, discographies, and photos. Now with Twitter, Facebook, BandCamp, SoundCloud and others being factored in, there seems to be missing one solitary platform where fans can go to make all these connections, and MTV believes they have created the solution with Artists.MTV.
