See Things Differently
I really like iLike (except for whoever thought up ‘Great Minds Think iLike’ bollox). They recently launched a service to promote tours, allowing you to pay to post ads to people living close to a venue or into the same genre of music as the band you’re promoting.
Great idea, except when you want to promote an entire tour and iLike expect you to fork out money per venue… dream on. Also, you can only promote gigs for artists you control. So, Tour Promoters, who are the people most likely to spend money but unlikely to control the artist’s iLike site, are excluded?
Ok, so couple of things to iron out, but as I say, I respect what they’re tryin’ to do and hope they can sort these things out.
