Where is our arts community at? All you amazing artists, (musicians, bands, DJs, producers, session artists, photographers, designers, and sketch artists) did you know that you have a social network platform of your own? There go your worries of looking for a platform to display your talent, right out the window. And in comes Skillbox, an Indian app designed by a struggling guitarist to help connect his community of art lovers to potential clients and right opportunities.
It works on a fairly simple model. On the website or app users (either upcoming or established artists) use the ‘Artists Profiles’ section, to create visually appealing profiles and gain visibility in promoting themselves. Musicians can use the audio-streaming service, StreamBox, to showcase their work to audiences and also monetise this! To help keep track of your progress, Skillbox also leverages data science to generate insightful trend reports. On the Feed section artists can publish and sell art and using the Discover section a user can find thousands of artists. So basically, people looking to organise events can drop by on the platform and pick an artist based on their portfolio, ratings and engagement and book them directly, online.
There's a Blog section too, that helps meet the news and knowledge needs of the community. Skillbox claims to have served over 5,000 artists and completed 3,000 events. It is available to download on Android and iOS phones (has over 10k downloads). So, if you're an artist of any kind, or are looking for inspiration download the app today!
