Talent Web Ventures
Talents come in many forms. There are musicians, graphical artists, poets, video directors, tattoo artists and a variety of others. At Web Ventures Plus™ we have worked with reality show t.v. stars, actors, musicians and graphic artists. We are always looking for new and energetic talents to navigate through their web ventures.
Custom Website Design
We can develop fully customized websites for your talent web venture. Custom websites for musicians, artists and actors often require the following key elements:
Blogging: a blogging tool is essential to post news updates about the artists’ activities and updates.
Photo Gallery: a photo gallery that is both functional and heightens a visitors experience.
Branding Consistency: while we can setup a template based website for your talent venture, nothing compares to the branding specific consistency that may be achieved through custom website design. Below is an image of a website we made for Deja. This was the first version of Deja’s website and encompassed various custom design features that coincided with her ground marketing efforts (e.g., the ‘D’ buttons for the navigation are replicas of actual buttons she handed out at concerts).
Video Gallery: a custom video gallery. We are fully equipped to develop out of the box video galleries. One of our favorite tools for video gallery production is YouTube’s developer APIs and Tools.
Below is an example of what can be accomplished with YouTube developer tools:
A Custom Music Player:
there is a time to utilize flash and this is one of them. Custom music players developed in flash allow us to stream music right on the website. These players are also share capable, helping to increase exposure and viral marketing. You can view one of our custom music players below:
Social Media Management
Talents present a unique web venture. The approach to handling a web venture for a talent contains elements not found as often in a campaign and/or business web venture. Artists often need to engage their fans directly responding to fan mail, or in today’s world posts and tweets. We work directly with our talent clients to ensure that they understand how to utilize social networks in order to engage their fans.
While we help to maintain our clients core social media structure (e.g., customized Facebook tabs, photo galleries, general status updates about tours, and changes to profile layout) we also help them interact with their fans. We connect the status update of Facebook with Twitter so that our clients can quickly tell their fans what they are up to. We help our clients perform these updates on their mobile devices so they can be done on the road.
In addition to assisting artist to fan contact, we help our talent clients manage their YouTube channels to match their website’s design. We also upload, properly tag and monitor their YouTube videos. Often our clients will send us a raw video and we’ll edit it for YouTube.
Social Networking Metrics
In addition to providing on demand website metrics, we provide on demand social networking metrics and analysis.
These metrics (image above) are a sample of an existing client. This is a snapshot of their pages interaction metrics. These allow us to determine how interactive (i.e., interested) their fans have been while viewing status updates.
