Which is better, a small individual artist website or a massive superstore artists website?
Mashable has picked up the story of the accidental startup website. See.Me
A chat with the man himself of See.Me
Dawn has been involved with the New York, See.Me website for a little while now after been featured in the billboards on Times Square in 2011 and on their website’s homepage.
Now the social network website is dedicated to promote the work of musicians, photographers and artists and has the ability to receive donations from fans. At last count, the site has 630,000 registered users, trying to raise money and build relationships with their fans. Some lucky users have gone viral while others, the majority are still waiting to be discovered.
Helamen says he still doesn’t think much of the site’s aim but recognised that it is one of the most successful accidental start-up of the phenomena of the emergence of the superstore website. He wonders if any one can actually be found among the 630,000 users. Its the “tip of the iceberg” scenario. You can only see the tip but a vast body of the iceberg cannot be seen.
So what’s best? A small artists own website with the marketing enhanced or a superstore artist website. Helamen used a tool for “social crawlytics” which measures the social network shares of Dawn’s dedicated website which was massive, but on the superstore See.me, she has only one like and 136 total views.
Its like looking for a needle in a haystack! or a Lottery win!
