Happy New Year!I hope you had a safe and wonderful Holiday Season. We have some
terrific things planned for 2011, and thank you in advance for your
support! Check out the new updates:
After interviewing several very accomplished candidates for our Street Team
Lead position, we are excited to announce Sara Shuman will be helping
to take over Street Team operations for the OrlandoBands.com
project. Our plans to help promote and spread the word about Central
Florida's talent are moving forward in 2011 and we look forward to
introducing some new features to the Street Team. Sara's experience
with live event production, promotions and drive to move the project
forward will aid OrlandoBands.com as well as all of the musicians, artists and industry professionals that support us. If you are interested in joining the OrlandoBands.com Street Team and taking advantage of the benefits, please let us know!
New Years Cleaning!
We have recently spent time cleaning up the web link directories. Links
that directed to invalid/bad URL's have been removed. You may want to
double check your weblink, or add it if you have not already. We
average 12.5 referrals a month to our free weblink directories! In an
effort to keep things organized, a new category has been added for the
Artist Directory called "Beyond Central Florida". If your band is based
roughly more than 1 hour away from Orlando, your link may have been
moved to this category. We have been seeing more weblink submissions
from out of state, and even the country.
