Onesheet Expands To Become LinkedIn For Music & Entertainment Industry

Tumblr_m988csiIxE1ql8frkOnesheet has announced today a major expansion for their artist profiles. While the current pages are simple, easy to set up and automatically managed to pull in content from all over the web, the company feels they can work better as a professional profile – a place where LinkedIn may fall short for musicians and where artists can be professionally represented and connected.

This new Onesheet will be a place for musicians to list the projects they’ve worked on, the people that represent them, and the things they’re good at. It will be a place for other entertainment professionals to endorse, follow and contact musicians, while keeping up with what other colleagues are working on.

“We want to give you something to be proud of,” Onesheet said in a blog post today. “We want to help your career grow not by building your fan base, but by building your reputation.”

Onesheet has listed some of the new features including:

  • Highlighted Media – Users can pick the video or audio that shows them off best and add it to the top of their new Onesheet.
  • Press  Users can now add the URL for the article that’s been written about them and Onesheet pulls in the title, blurb, and image.
  • Endorsements – Users can now ask people they’ve worked with to visibly endorse them.
  • Tags – Add what skills you have, what instruments you play, etc.
  • Privacy – Password protection on any new project Onesheet, meaning if you have a new single, movie, album, or other project that you want to share with people, you can build a Onesheet for it and only allow access to those that should have it.
  • Content from the Web – Like the old Onesheet, pages stay up to date with content from other sites.
  • Projects (Coming Soon) – Add entire filmographies or discographies.
  • Representation (Coming Soon) – List your manager, agent, publicist, etc.

While Onesheet rolls out these new profiles, current Onesheet page users will be able to continue using their “old” profiles, but under the new name of “Onesheet Splash Pages.” The Pro tier and free tier will be combined, while Splash Pages will be a premium product offered at a yearly subscription price of $60/year. Recognizing that this could be a big change for some users, all existing Onesheet Splash Pages will stay active for the next 60 days and users can keep using the product for free while deciding if it’s worth paying for.

“We are offering deep discounts to existing users,” the company said. “If you activate your yearly subscription in August, you lock in the next year for just $10. That’s the entire year for $10, which is over 80% less than Pro users are paying now. If you sign up in September, you save 50% and get the next year for $30. After that, you get the normal $60/year price.”

Onesheet founder Brenden Mulligan tells Hypebot that they are aiming to serve as a LinkedIn for the entertainment industry, and that this is just the first of many new features coming to the new Onesheet.
