GigLinx™ Your Support

I’m looking for funding support for the development of GigLinx™, an online platform to empower independent musicians with more exposure and more gigs while providing a time/resource-saving platform for venues and those who hire musicians. 


GigLinx is a two-phased platform: 

·       A machine for more exposure and more gigs – empowering independent musicians

·       A means for venues/event planners to find and book musicians – saving time and resources to find quality musicians

Artists – Phase 1

·       Dedicated webpage – unlimited updates to content, photos, music and videos

·       Social media dashboard – one place for posting & scheduling, measuring growth

·       FanIndex™ rating – proprietary ranking based on current social media following

·       Marketing toolkit

·       Access to marketing and promotion professionals

·       Searchable database inclusion

·       MORE GIGS

Venues/Event Planners – Phase 2

Phase 2 of GigLinx will allow venues/event planners to quickly search and evaluate artists for bookings. Search and sort on our FanIndex™, genre, price range while listening to a preview. The FanIndex is our unique rating tool that reflects artist fan base and reach – the higher the FanIndex, the larger the audience. Then book directly with the artist.

·       Direct access to musicians

              -  Geography

              -  Genre

·       Directional custom developed platform consisting of web server and files with Amazon (AWS), MongoDB (MongoILabs database), graphics with Cloudinary, unified data integration with social media
