Hereit is now on Facebook and Twitter. It’s almost ridiculous what powerful tools they are to help spread the word about the site and support the artists who are on it.
Last night, right after James and the Ultrasounds posted their profile, adding Memphis to the site, I welcomed them on the Hereit Facebook page. Within a few minutes, they had sold at least one download of each of the seven songs they posted. Can’t argue with that.
So if you’re on ’em, go like the Hereit Facebook page and follow Hereit on Twitter @hereitorg.
Hereit is one week old and I am just so humbled and thankful for all the support, encouragement, kind words and best wishes.
In the seven days that Hereit has been live, it has received visits from ten different countries, 34 states and 103 cities. Artists have started profiles in New York City, Nashville and, as of last night, Memphis. It has been incredible to receive emails from artists who posted songs, sold them and received 100 percent of the money—all in the same night. For me, that is the whole point of Hereit—to give artists a simple, powerful and affordable tool that lets them connect with listeners and then stays out of the way.
I have been contacted by some truly great and exciting artists—blues, punk, soul, honky tonk, indie rock, garage rock, americana—who are all planning on posting in the days and weeks ahead, and I can’t wait to hear who else is out there. This site is going to be built band-by-band, artist-by-artist, city-by-city. I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Keep visiting Hereit, like and buy songs, and help spread the word by passing it along and sharing the site. Thank you!
