Revival of a Song
Working as a therapist and life coach is my full time job but I also create a little dance music in my spare time. A while back I created a song which I sent to a local radio show. Their staff called me 2 weeks later, asking if I would like to be interviewed and have my music played, which I accepted. However, since then the song was doing nothing but collecting dust. I thought I’d try posting an opportunity on SkillPages to see if anyone would like to create a music video for it, thinking to myself I would rather have 50% of something than 100% of nothing.
I created the opportunity in the morning whilst eating my breakfast and then went into town and forgot about it. 5 hours later I returned home to discover I had 17 emails. I soon realised that all of the emails were from music video producers competing to work with me.
High Calibre of Applicants
A quick overview of the choice of applicants - one had produced a recent award winning TV commercial for Mercedes Benz, several had their own music studios with years of experience and one even produced a music video for Mel C! I’ve been spending some time viewing their work and have decided who to work with. Now comes the exciting part of getting started.
From my personal experience, it would be difficult for me to find one reason not to recommend SkillPages! I’m excited that I’ve discovered a site that works so well. And the best thing is that these new contacts I gained were all for free!
