A New Way for Music Performers and Fans to Engage
Hage describes the social startup he launched in 2018 as “the LinkedIn for entertainers.”
The website offers new artists an opportunity to advertise their services as a DJ or an entertainer for various events and venues. A musician or DJ can upload videos, audio, and images to their profile to help pull in talent scouts and get their names out there. The idea is to combine the functionality of other businesses and social media companies like Youtube, Instagram, and LinkedIn into one convenient platform, Doodeo.
The social startup business offers a free plan in addition to a Doodeo Pro plan, which, for a monthly fee, allows any artist and DJ unlimited media uploads and gig applications as well as more detailed insights about the traffic on their Doodeo profile. Live streaming music services will allow entertainers to host virtual audiences and provide a method for consumers to book private performances from budding DJs and performers.
Bridging the Social Media and Music Performance Market
The Doodeo platform plants itself firmly in two massive markets: social media and music entertainment. Not only does the company offer a way for listeners and event bookers to engage with up-and-coming artists, but the business platform can also potentially jumpstart artists’ careers, allowing giants like Sony and Warner Music Group to find rising stars.
As the music industry continues to recover from canceled tours, live music streaming services hold great potential, and companies like Apple and Amazon are already taking advantage of the market.
