I love exploring music! I particularly enjoy discovering new artists to add to my music collection. That is one of the things that I really love about Our Stage. You can discover new artists, and as a fan you can make a difference in those artists rise to fame on this site. Or, if you are a musician, this is a great platform to use to extend your fan base.
I think most of you will be joining the site as a fan, so I’d recommend getting started by clicking I am a FAN on the main page; this will take you to a page that explains everything you need to know about using the site. The overview even points out the competitions, prizes, and badges you can earn through participating on the site. You can learn by navigating the links on the left menu.
To join as a Fan just click the Join button on the main page, then decide whether you want to F-connect and auto-register through Facebook, or if you want to setup your fan account by filling out the registration form. The form is easy to fill out, just provide: a username, e-mail address, your birth date and gender, then create a password and fill in the verification code, check the box that you agree to the Terms and Conditions, and then click Submit. You’ll also want to decide if you want the newsletter, if you don’t, uncheck that box!
If you are an Artist, you’ll want click I am an ARTIST on the main page; this will take you to the artist overview where you will learn how to share your music, enter monthly contests, and manage your fame! Notice the Membership Plans on the left menu – there is a free option as well as different pricing. As an artist you may decide that you want to opt in for one of the paid packages, but you don’t have to. You’ll also want to look at the Music Licensing section too!
To join as an Artist, you’ll have to fill out the registration form with all the required information. The information you’ll provide is: band name, contact information (name/address), prize contact information (phone number/e-mail address), whether you’ll let them sell your music, birth date, and you’ll need to create a password, decide if you want the newsletter, and check the box that you agree to the site’s Terms and Conditions. You’ll also want to make sure that you change the bullet from the Premium Membership to the Free Membership if you don’t plan on taking advantage of the premium option.
