(UPDATED) If you're having trouble growing your own network, why not use some else's? That's the motivation behind global house concert network Slowbizz's shift of their entire artist discovery platform to hot social image network Pineterest. "We strongly believe that Pinterest is simply an awesome platform to like, love & share great content," according the startup. "This is the place to be seen & heard." Here's how it works:
"We will from now on redirect all the traffic leading to Slowbizz.com to our Pinterest Slowbizz board," says the company. "This move will enable tens of millions of Pinterest users to stumble upon the artists and potentially to book a house concert via the dedicated links added to the videos descriptions."
Slowbizz is still maintaining artist profiles and more on their blog. New artist can apply to be part of the program and are accepted as soon as they reach 50 votes.
