I have to say MusicLinkUp is a gold mine of information. I’d received notifications for several days, but because of a ridiculously busy schedule, I hadn’t had time to stroll around the site and see what’s happening. I took that time this morning, and frankly, the site made me dizzy. In a good way.
There’s just so much to see and explore. It will take some time for me to get through it all.
Ahead of the launch, media compared the new site to LinkedIn. I can see that. But in my opinion, it’s more like a blend of different social media including LinkedIn and Facebook. I like the news feed. I don’t have time to read all the arts news, so being able to see relevant articles curated for my feed is a plus.
I also like the connection process. I’m a writer, not a musician. So I have an interest in all facets of music. Promoters, corporate movers and shakers, songwriters—all of these showed up in my aspiring connections. I connected with everyone who asked. The site is still new to me so I have much to learn. There’s also a premium version. If the site proves as beneficial as I think it will, I’ll sign up for that.
I posted a brief writeup, with the photo I snapped during one of the Daysies’ performances last week. It was a comical moment for our group because my husband was annoying my older daughter. That is unusual—I’m normally the family heckler. The look on both their faces was a moment I’ll treasure for a long time. It was all in good fun. We were just happy to be able to take in a performance close to our hometown—Green Cove Springs is about 40 minutes from here if traffic is normal.
Another neat feature of MusicLinkUp permits you to see who’s viewed your profile.
The site has job listings, and it permits you to post a job too. The network arena features suggestions for people you can link up with. There are many suggestions for me to study and make decisions about productive connections.
I’m still finding my way around, but I think this site will be a great resource for all sorts of people in the music industry. Thus far, it’s blessedly devoid of the hysterics I encounter on certain other social media, and for that I am grateful. For instance, sometimes I have to scroll and scroll through contacts at other sites to find something I’m interested in.
I’ll continue to explore the site and report results. Meanwhile, if you’re in the music business in any capacity, it looks like a great option to learn, connect, and perhaps gain.
