gigmit FAQ: How to Add Songs & What’s a FAN BASE Module

 

It’s very necessary that you connect songs and videos with your EPK. No media = no visibility = no gigs, signings. So let’s talk about how to get your Artist Page especially with Spotify ready. 

Your Media Box represents your most powerful songs. The connection to Spotify also represents the data for the FAN BASE and the FAN LOCATION Module. This article is about how to link Spotify to your EPK.

How to Add Songs & What’s the FAN BASE Module

First of all, your gigmit Artist Page only works for you if it’s up-to-date and promoters can listen to your music. That’s why you need to add songs to your gigmit Artist Page. A total of 5 Songs can be integrated from your Spotify, SoundCloud, Mixcloud and Bandcamp profiles. But pay attention – your songs need to be public. Otherwise, they won’t appear in your Media Box and won’t be playable. In general, you need valid song URLs if you want to link your artist page to your songs.

  • Go to your gigmit Artist Page/EPK

How to Link your Soundcloud to your Artist Page

  • Log in
  • Go to your gigmit artist page
  • Scroll down to the statistics section
  • Click on the “connect” button next to “Soundcloud”

  • Fill in your Soundcloud login information
  • Click “Connect and Continue”

IMPORTANT NOTE: Connecting your socials to the “Statistics” section of your artist page will allow promoters to see data about your fans, following and streams. This is NOT the section from which promoters can listen to your music. You can connect your music to your page in the “Songs” section.

How to connect Bandcamp and Mixcloud

To connect songs from Bandcamp / Mixcloud to your artist page, simply go to the songs section of your page and click

 

Click on the “Enter song URL” text box

Enter your song URL 

Click “Add”

You can add your top five songs to your artist page and this makes it much easier for promoters to quickly get a good idea of your music style, your talent and if you fit what they are looking for.

What Is the FAN BASE Module Good for?

The new FAN BASE Module shows your Fan Growth of the last 28 days since the first connection with Spotify. Growing numbers show bookers that your project has potential. Your profile will be more attractive and you will increase your chances to get booked! 

With the data from your FAN BASE module, you will be automatically suggested to the gigmit GROWTH CHARTS every month. They show which artists from a country are trending at the moment. Live acts that have connected their Spotify account will also appear automatically in the gigmit FAN CHARTS. These show promoters who is currently being heard in their city and should therefore be booked. Find out more about the gigmit FAN CHARTS here.

To get on stage, get booked. tT get booked, get discovered. Get visible via gigmit! Keep your gigmit Artist Page up-to-date, add songs and connect Spotify.
