LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:

Better Tools for Artists and the Music Industry

We put artists directly in touch with music industry professionals and opportunities. We offer really cool (and free) song promotion tools and help artists' get their songs discovered. Music Xray allows the artist to expose their music to music industry professionals who can offer not only various music opportunities for artists but can also offer services and song critiques.

The artist can embed their Music Xray into their website of choice or blog for others to listen to, comment on, fill out a customizable song survey, watch the artists video, setup passcodes for users wanting to download the song, track their presence on Twitter, track file shares for their music, track important statistics on MySpace, along with many other features already available in the Music Xray and other features being added and updated. The three main reasons an artist would want to upload their music to Music Xray:

1. To submit a song to an industry professional. Submit Your Music

2. To get a Music Xray song presentation package with which to promote their music. - Promote Your Music

3. To put their songs in our search engine. - Get Your Music Found We also help out the music industry professionals by providing them a platform for accepting songs from artists from their website or blog.

We also allow the music industry professionals to post their opportunities on our site and allow them to search through our database of artists. We also help out the music industry professionals by providing them a platform to allow artists to submit songs for their consideration for critique or review. We provide them their own private drop box with features that make is easy to manage these submissions and communicate back to the artist.

When a music industry professional activates a Music Xray drop box the existence of their drop box is automatically added to Music Xray which exposes them to thousands of artists as well. In short, with Music Xray we provide a way for the music industry professionals to get organized submissions for free or for a fee, charge fees if they are offering services, find artists in the Music Xray database and get exposed to thousands of artists. Simply put we have a platform that allows the artists a much better way to interact with the music industry professionals while also allowing the music industry professionals to be put in direct contact with the artists.

HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:

We need to have 4 pages redesigned:

Page 1 is the home page:

We need to have the basics of the site redesigned for us. We do not want to change the logo. The current website http://www.musicxray.com/ displays the three main reasons an artist would want to upload their music to Music Xray:

1. To submit a song to an industry professional. Submit Your Music

2. To get a Music Xray song presentation package with which to promote their music. - Promote Your Music

3. To put their songs in our search engine. - Get Your Music Found

We need to present this in a manner that is easy for people to understand and navigates them to these three main parts of the site. However, we want to put considerably more emphasis on point number 1 and for points 2 and 3 to take a back seat.

We would like to be able to showcase featured opportunities on the front of the site.It would be good to have people to be able to subscribe to our email list from the home page or an obvious link to the subscription page.

The reason they would want to do this is to receive updates for the latest opportunities from MusicXray located here http://www.musicxray.com/x.

Page 2 is this page: http://www.musicxray.com/x

We need a better way of displaying the opportunities to artists. and a better way of organizing the categories. As it stands, artists see this page with the most recently posted opportunities at the top and then on the left they can see the other categories of opportunities.

We need to make searching for and finding appropriate opportunities easy and intuitive for the music artists who visit the site.

Page 3 is this page: http://www.musicxray.com/promote-your-mu...

It's important that artists understand that if they create a song presentation package like the one on the right they can display it on a page by itself (each one has it's own url) or they can embed it in other websites and blogs. I'm not sure we're communicating the value, features and benefits well.

Page 4 is this page: http://submit.musicxray.com/profiles/16

This is the commerce page where the music industry professional offers one to several submission opportunities the artist can choose from, submit to and pay for. You will see that there is also a tab where the bio is displayed and another tab where the artist can rate and comment on the service they got from that industry professional.

We think this page needs a complete overhaul. The comments and bio section needs to be more obvious and needs to say something like - "Once you've received service from this professional you can write about your experience here and rate the professional. Read what others have said here too".... or something like that.

We would like to really reduce the branding on this page to something more like "powered by Music Xray" with a place for a third party logo to be inserted as the primary branding on the page. The look and feel should be in line with the design of the other pages we're making in this project This commerce experience should be much more intuitive and easy to understand than it currently is.

OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:

musicians, bands, musical artists

WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:

mailchimp.com, soundcloud.com

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:

we do not like our current designs at all. The look too 1995 and we need a much more web savvy design.
