Promote yourself and market your talent with YourArt

In May 2008, a South African company called YourArt launched a user-friendly, interactive marketing and promotion website that caters for the promotion and marketing of South African artists and their original products both here and abroad.

Jann Robertson, a representative of the YourArt Team explained, “YourArt is not just a networking site although we do provide this opportunity to our members. Simply put, the YourArt website provides a platform for South African artists, from every genre to promote themselves and market their original work to target audiences via YourArt internet and mobile marketing and promotion campaigns”.

This interactive internet platform provides South African artists the opportunity to upload original material under five categories; audio, video, flash animation, graphics and words with useful functions like a blog, a chatroom and forum plus in the near future, a self-managed Events List and so much more. Here professionals, non-professionals and students can showcase their original; music, songs, music videos, short movies, animations, photographs, paintings, sculptures, poems, jokes etcetera so that they can be seen, heard and rated both overseas and here at home.

Members of a well-known South African band Teerpad stated, “YourArt is the future of marketing in the SA Music Industry. We as musicians can now reach a more specific audience and we can benefit financially without everyone taking a bite out of our profits.” Other members agreed. “YourArt’s fresh and enthusiastic approach to SA music and talent is just what we need to inspire and boost the industry” said Claudia Cox a songwriter, musician and registered member on the YourArt website.

Robertson concluded, “The intention behind the YourArt platform is not only to provide an effective interactive method of retaining a record of the growth of our distinctive South African talent but also a means to contribute to the evolution of our South African identity, as a unique creative force that deserves not only world-wide recognition and appreciation for original South African creations but also consistent cost-effective marketing and promotion opportunities for all South African artists.”
