Everyone knows that the only thing that musicians love more than making music and playing it for fans is managing their social media accounts, right? No? Well if you are like most artists, you probably loathe spending an hour or two every day setting up Facebook posts, linking your account to Twitter and all the other busy work it takes to run a successful social media presence.
But in today’s music scene you are basically committing professional suicide if you don’t utilize these tools. So the people at Cultivate decided to make it easier for artists and performers around the world. Self-described as a “Marketing Agency In A Box”, Cultivate’s social media management services are now available to the public and you’ll be very satisfied with the results! Plus, you can try it now FOR FREE!
The North Carolina based startup is designed to manage your social media accounts at a fraction of the cost of hiring a marketing agency or social media manager. With an innovative and novel product in the music world, it is no surprise that Cultivate was featured in South By Southwest‘s 2017 Startup Spotlight and won the North Carolina Tech Association‘s Top Tech Startup To Watch Award for 2017.
Using a streamlined post template and an AI generated posting schedule, Cultivate takes almost all the social media hassle off the hands of the artist. Simply enter a few basic details and Cultivate can handle the rest.
“Cultivate automates the repeatable aspects of digital marketing through templates. A user simply enters concerts, releases, or other initiatives and custom marketing campaigns are created, optimally spacing and timing execution so content reaches more customers. All you have to do is upload the content Cultivate suggests, or provide your own, and approve.”
“This is the first time I’ve ever seen something as innovative as this approach of applying the basic principles of marketing to clients in the music industry,” says Alex Spike, founder & CEO of Next Spike, a Web design and marketing firm with an office in Los Angeles.
