Fame Tube, which released January 1st, takes the traditional platform of media uploads to display talent to a new level, and all for free. With this simple process and each upload, every artist will have the opportunity to increase their chances of being discovered.
Brad Buttimer, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing for Fame Tube is thrilled to bring an exciting opportunity into the world of web and media.
“We came up with the idea of Fame Tube, after seeing the incredible amount of artists using other media platforms to display their talent. With social media and mobile upload capabilities being more popular than ever, talent seemed to be overshadowed on many sites. We wanted to give artists the opportunity to display their talent on a site that is solely meant for this reason,” states Buttimer.
Fame Tube focuses only on individuals who have the talent to display to the public. Singing, dancing, acting – display it, and let the public do the rest. Although this platform is not new, the way that the idea is executed is. Many would agree that YouTube is one of the best places to be discovered; however, with tons of videos being uploaded other than talent, countless musicians are lost in the fold.
Every video submitted is uploaded on the home page of Fame Tube. These videos are being viewed throughout the day by Fame Tube web surfers, and each person viewing the video, has the opportunity to vote and share their opinions.
“We feel that the public should play an important role in discussing who they like as an artist. After all, the public’s opinion is the foundation for an artist’s future,” Buttimer explains.
Some of the unique features of Fame Tube include:
Join Justin Bieber, Sean Kingston, Colbie Cailat, Soulja Boy, Asher Roth and more, by using the internet to get to star status. For an artist, joining Fame Tube to display talent – 5 minutes of time can result in the opportunity of a lifetime.
