TradConnect has not received any gifts yet
Over the 12 months of 2014 Tradconnect received 530,000 page hits from 135,000 users and every day achieve close to 1,000 unique visits.
Tradconnect’s goal has been to create a strong independent channel that allows musicians to access a global audience. This we have achieved, and as our numbers continue to demonstrate we are growing in strength and popularity by the day.
We Are Not Your Friends : Yes that’s right, we are not your friends or to be more precise we are not your Facebook friends, and this believe it or not, is one of the many advantages of being part of Tradconnect.
Have a look at your Facebook friends and you will find that most of them are fellow musicians. These friends are great for keeping in touch with what is happening in the industry but are not necessarily the audience of fans that you should be trying to reach.
The truth is that most people are constrained by the reach of their Facebook marketing and are looking for ways to connect with a wider audience. Just because your news stream is full of trad news, don’t assume that the average fan is seeing the same content as you. They are not.
Welcome to your new audience : Visit Tradconnect and you can see all the content posted. Over 130,000 people visited Tradconnect over the last 12 months, so that’s a lot of people that you may be missing out on. Every week we email our 6,000 members with a very concise newsletter. Writers, broadcasters and other bloggers visit our pages to find out what is happening and they in turn write about it. So if you want to reach a whole new audience then all you need to do is engage with us.
How to access this new channel : To access this new channel there are a number of things that you can do.
