Who's behind Beat Drifters.. are there even 'humans' associated with this or is it a scam and totally fake website because a photo of someone's face isn't pasted on the homepage?!
Ok, so now that I've found this Beatdrifters thing - what IS it exactly?
Ah, that's pretty cool then! Promoters save some cash and performers make a bit extra - I love it!
I totally get it now, awesome I'm in!.. but, how do I actually *use* it?
For both performers and promoters; adding information to your user profile is creating a calling card of your talents and events and a super important step, so don't forget beef up your profile with extra information right away.
After that's sorted, the core of things is the EVENTS section. As either a promoter or a performer, while on your own profile page you click on the "Add & Edit Travel / Events" tab and then the "ADD" text link. This will send you a page where you create an event listing. Promoters want to create event listings for events that are still filling talent slots and the postings you make here are IN ADVANCE of regular public release.
Promoter's events show up on the event's map as RED PINS. And Performers are creating GREEN PINS which show what areas they are travelling to and for how long. By clicking a pin, or browsing the events listing it's self you can view the finer details of both types of events.
Once you've decided you want to make a connection, simply click the 'Message Me' link found within each events listing to be send directly to your in-profile messaging tool. From here, it's like any other interaction and process of working out a booking. All of the regular ways you go about working out your bookings don't change.
The main thing to remember is that since this is a professional tool built specifically for this purpose, everyone is here TO GET THINGS DONE, and what a nice change of pace that is right?!
Where can I find Beat Drifters logos to use on my flyers and other promo?
I want to have both a Performer and a Promoter account, can I do that?
I'm trying to message someone using the 'Message Me' link provided in an event.. and after I'm redirected to my messaging section, in the '@' field I only see my own email address along with a subtext in red about this user not existing. What gives??
As a promoter, how can I mark my home region so travelling performers can find and connect with me?
I know I'm going to be in an area of the world for an extended period of time on a work contract, how can I tell promoters this?
You already have either a Performer or Promoter account with Beat Drifters, but we know that many people wear both hats and we encourage you have both account types.
To obtain both account types here on Beat Drifters, sign out of your current account, and then sign up for that new account type. From this point forward you will be considered a 'Dual Format' member with the following advantages:
Unique Profile Images:
You may be one persona as a Performer and something entirely different as a promoter. Having two unique accounts makes it possible for your profile image to reflect this separation.
Unique user account names:
Just as with your profile image, when someone finds your events / travel / profile page - you can be certain they are seeing the correct BRANDING for you. This is ESSENTIAL when keeping a clear consistent message across each of your Performer and / or Promoter accounts.
Discrete email contact addresses:
Using a new email address keeps your contacts separate and easily filterable within our email application. You'll always know if someone is contacting you about playing one of your shows... or having you play one of theirs keeping things clean and simple.
Thank you for joining. We look forward to co-creating an intercultural professional network of passionate, talented, respected and incredible people like you.
