Grow with Artist Republik
If you have an account with Artist Republik you’re probably aware of one of our outstanding features, the Grow with Us tool. But one of the questions that we get most often is, “What is the Grow with Us tool?” Fret not, my musically inclined friend. I am here to guide you through one of our most popular features. So put your reading goggles on & grow with Artist Republik.
How does it work?
In order to fully understand how to use the Grow with Us feature, you have to understand how it works. Here’s a quote from the mastermind behind the feature:
“The way the grow with us system works is we work in partnership with a platform called The Husk. It creates download gates and social links for artists, blogs, and influencers. These networks then drive hundreds of thousands of users every month through these gates and links. Once the traffic is going through the gates, our Grow with Us tool breaks the traffic into segments based on interests and targets our artists Spotify and Soundcloud profiles. These listeners then get served our artists information by displaying their songs and profiles on gates where similar music listeners are visiting.”
That’s a mouthful, but I still don’t get it.
Let’s start with a picture:
This is an example of one of those link gates. On the left you see the button for the gate along with social media handles at the bottom.
Pay attention to the two buttons for Soundcloud and Spotify on the right side of the image. This is where the artist’s information goes. We’ll get to that later.
Go to https://thehusk.ca/ and check out their platform! This is where people start the process of making download gates. You don’t have to worry about that though.
Once someone creates a download gate, our partnership with The Husk kicks in. Depending on the traffic flowing through the gate, The Husk matches our paying artists with select gates and advertises their music to the masses.
That’s where the Soundcloud & Spotify buttons come in. When you get paired with a download gate, your Spotify & Soundcloud information get populated in the advertising section & are immediately available for follows.
Now I get it…so how do I get to use this AMAZING feature?
