TheBuzzinBox(dot com) went live in 2010 with an aim at creating a ‘buzz’ amongst mainstream audiences worldwide about the best unsigned and independent artists, groups, bands, and DJ’s of all genres; in hopes of building each artist’s fan base and assisting in launching their careers to ‘stardom’. The newly launched website features expanded content, interviews, music, streaming media (including video clips related to artists and music industry news) and its own music video television channel known as BuzzinBoxTV (BBTV). The Buzzin Box also has its own social networking follow me/us buttons that all featured artists can embed within their websites and/or social networking sites that support html format.
There has been a shift in the industry where independent artists are defining their own success. They have become privy to the fact that it is more lucrative and beneficial to simply remain independent and build their fan base in hopes of reaching the major labels, or signing a worldwide distribution deal with a reputable digital or terrestrial distributor. The bulk of marketing is now done online via blogs, viral videos and social networking sites, and that is where the Buzzin Box comes into play.
“We just wanted to create a platform on the web that is professional, effective and straight to the point. Our online visitors are able to view a selected genre of artists, and follow each artist along the way as they are featured on the site. We also provide our readers with some of the most up-to-date relevant music industry news in our ‘Music Industry Buzz’ category; fostering a well-balanced multi-music website for artists, industry executives, fans, and listeners alike,” says Co-Founder and Owner, Carlos Pittman.
