What about the other 50 percent? You love this site so much you want to see them top the charts for a long time to come, AP.net broke the mold, these guys keep the wheels greased, and right now the music industry needs every alternative option available. Its about passion my friend, this site is one of the best examples out there, it raw and its real.
Sponsors dont make money on the front end- it the value of the brand, for the most part companies will offer a co marketing opportunity or pay to have their brand associated with brand of an artist, strengthening the community, building an identity. I'll be extremely brief, case in point: Rockstar/Taste of Chaos- Rockstar puts up to the money to market the tour, attracting high profile artist that attract the diehard fans to a new target, thousands of samples of their drink are offered at the venue, the next time that kid goes to the store he will pay the retail price of $3-
another word for publicity=exposure.
the Audition is one of the hardest working bands touring today, why wouldnt you want to see it happen for them? We do.
Alright. The question was one of me being curious. It was not to find out if ap.net makes a lot of money. I wanted to know that if person A sponsored a tour like this one, if he would make money. Thank you for your help but I really think you got the wrong idea from my question.. I really don't need you to lecture me about "passion." Tell it to someone else.
