On June 26, social media agency fishbat analyzes the effectiveness of musicians using social media outlets to find potential bandmates and gigs, as reported in a Mashable article.
According to the article published onMashable, a recently made social media site, Giggem, provides a unique, one-stop approach to helping musicians find potential “bandmates, managers, and labels.” The article says Giggem utilizes algorithms to match a musician’s profile with local bands.
In the article, Giggem creator and CEO Emir Turan describes his intentions for Giggem. "With a few clicks, we want [musicians] to meet online, and see if they fit in real life to improve their music careers,” he says.
Justin Maas, VP of client relations at fishbat, says Giggem provides a clear example of how reliable social media has become for everyday needs.“Internet marketing companies and businesses use social media to communicate the value of their products and services to their customers,” he says.“Giggem uses the same concept. It allows musicians to communicate their interests, musical talents or ‘value,’ so to speak. With this, musicians are paired with compatible bands, just like ads attract a particular group of consumers that are compatible with the services provided by a company.”
Maas says this reflects on society’s growing reliance on social network media. “Social media provides an easy way to introduce people and businesses with similar interests,” he says. “This can be seen with this new website, Giggem, but it’s also seen through other social media sites like LinkedIn. This creates future opportunities for an entirely new hiring process. We might start seeing the ‘Now Hiring’ signs disappearing on doors, and start seeing them appear on social media websites.”
