Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2007
Artists and performers are promoting their shows on a new -- and fast-growing -- website that is exclusively for creative arts. ComeSeeMyShow.com hosts free ads for their music gigs, theatrical plays, art exhibits, dance performances, comedy acts, book signings ... even children's puppet shows. Anyone can quickly create free, full-color, on-line ads and invite their "FFF's" (that's Fans, Friends and Family, for those in the know).
Right when it opens, ComeSeeMyShow.com displays a full page of today's shows, unlike other sites that bury listings behind vanity pages, personal ads and job postings. With just a couple mouse clicks a visitor can browse to a different day, filter shows by category and view shows in other cities across the United States. And ComeSeeMyShow.com doesn't have any "web clutter" like pop-ups and paid banner ads for home loans or wrinkle cream. Just ads that performers and artists create for their shows.
The website's creator, Brett Juilly, is a former garage band keyboardist who knows how little money up-and-comers have for advertising. He quit his computer programming job after seven years to create this site as a supportive on-line arts community, with free advertising and lots of ideas for putting on shows. (Just click the "How to Have a Show" link.) For the artist/performer with a little extra money, the site will soon "feature" one ad per day per category. That means that one play, one music gig, or one art exhibit will be displayed at the top of the main page every day -- making the ad stand out from the rest of the shows. The cost for the soon-to-be-famous performer or artist? Just $20. Every guitarist, actor, poet, dancer, sculptor, comedian and puppeteer can afford that.
