(PRWEB) July, 2003 -- VersusMedia, a leader in public relations and marketing for independent artists of every entertainment medium, prides itself in its abilities to connect its clients to the global scene through the Internet. As a fresh and vital force in the stagnant and mass-produced media industry, VersusMedia gives independent artists a commanding voice borne from a loud-mouthed, no-holds-barred, fearless guerilla approach to marketing and PR.
By offering hands-on marketing strategies that compliment the individual needs of independent artists, clients of VersusMedia achieve a level of sophisticated exposure that rivals the marketing efforts of the mainstream media industry. Artists, who are without the marketing resources offered by media giants, find that VersusMedia gives them a dominating presence in the eyes of consumers through the global access provided by the Internet.
The company also provides a service that connects independent filmmakers with indie musicians. Since there is always a need for great music in movie soundtracks, VersusMedia offers musicians access to film school students, directors of indie features scouting the festival circuit, and marketing departments that need music for corporate presentations. Filmmakers from all over the world are currently using this service to locate music for their next project, helping to unify a global film scene.
Not only does VersusMedia help artists stay media savvy, but individuals on tight budgets also find these services to be quite affordable. Artists can achieve a marketing plan while not starving to do so. Understanding financial constraints, VersusMedia is eager to work with people in payment plans, and does accept most major credit cards.
"My mission is to give independent artists access to all the tools and resources at the disposal of major labels and studios, providing these services for projects based on limited budgets," says Ryan Vinson, founder of VersusMedia. "Major artists all have unlimited finances to create marketing materials which help increase their credibility and fan base. I believe that strong indie artists deserve to have materials that rival the quality provided to major artists. The point is to make everyone look good, so that when new fans, prospective fans, and A&R reps receive marketing materials, they see a compelling presentation that makes a great first impression. Then, the artist's work speaks for itself".
VersusMedia stands on a foundation of results in the marketing of independent artists and organizations. Ryan Vinson has a philosophy. "Why should mainstream media claim the spotlight," says Ryan, "when there is a massive audience of people in the world starving for media that is as diverse as their individual tastes."
And Ryan knows this to be fact. Growing up in the rural American Heartland (Southern Illinois, to be exact), Ryan and his friends were forced to listen and view the mass-produced artists that the major media companies marketed through the controlled mediums of television and radio. So, at the early age of 16, Ryan began to search for media that was fresh and invigorating. He became a manager of local bands, developing a hands-on approach to PR with local radio stations and campaigned for his artists on college campuses and in local businesses. With a strong grasp on the booming world of Web programming and design, Ryan used the Internet to further push his artists into the public view. Through a sense of determination and quick wit, Ryan went on to work for companies across the US learning tools of the trade and unique ways of promotion. Eventually, VersusMedia was born, and soon found its home in St. Louis, MO, amongst the entertainment scene of the midwest.
Now, Ryan, at the age of 25, and VersusMedia are beasts of continual evolution. Having expanded the business with an office in Los Angeles, CA, Ryan is finding great success with clients from around the world in a city ruled by corporate media giants. VersusMedia's resume now includes work with individuals, small businesses, as well as major corporations in various pieces of the entertainment industry. The company continues to achieve an unbelievable level of success due to its determination and dedication to further the careers of its clientele. The buzz surrounding VersusMedia only increases with every new client, due to the growing experience and sophistication of the company's staff and management.
If you are an artist looking to break through to the other side, then VersusMedia is the company to help you open the right doors to success.
