While at SXSW, I sat down with Sonicbids – the online Electronic Press Kit (EPK). I was first introduced to Sonicbids around 10 years ago when the company came on the scene. I even signed up for the beta!
Fast forward to 2012, and Sonicbids is still running strong. With over 26,00 promoters and over 100,000 gigs booked in 2011, Sonicbids has been working social media before the term was coined.
Sonicbids can help people find gigs in cities they don’t live in. For example – if you are in New York, and you plan a trip to San Francisco, you can put up your EPK on Sonicbids, then network with other bands and promoters to find places to play and promote your band.
I sit down and talk with Tess at Sonicbids to find out about what Sonicbids is doing to get more people gigs.
