Musicians and fans, it’s time to shift into high gear! Voting for the FIAT® Band Prix began Tuesday, November 5 and will end Tuesday, November 19 at 10 a.m. ET. Act fast and get tons of free music before voting ends, and help determine which band will win a national TV appearance on VH1′s Top 20 Video Countdown!
Artists, the cool thing about getting votes in the FIAT Band Prix is that your fans vote for you by downloading your song. It’s really that simple, plus, there’s something in it for them too! Start inviting your friends, fans family and more to cast their votes by downloading your song on the FIAT USA Facebook page. We suggest posting to Facebook and Twitter, sending emails, and telling everyone through word-of-mouth! You’ll also notice that we built banners directly into your ReverbNation widgets, artist profile, band profile app, and FanReach email template; the banner redirects your fans to the app and automatically puts your song at the top!
Fans, you’ve gotta be 13 years old and you have to like the FIAT USA Facebook page in order to gain access to the thousands of free songs available for download. Each download counts as one vote, and you can only vote for a song once. You can vote for as many songs as you like, meaning you’ll be able to get hundreds of new songs to add to your own personal library. Check out the guide below to see how it’s done.
First, “like” the FIAT USA Facebook page (and check out the snazzy Band Prix cover photo!) Then click on the FIAT Band Prix Facebook app, circled below in blue.
Next, click the different genre tabs and scroll through the artists on the different pages! This is a great way to download and discover new music. Remember, if you click the link on your favorite artist’s ReverbNation page, or one that they post via Facebook and Twitter, it will automatically place their name at the top of the list. That will save you some time searching for them. Hit the “Download” button to download their song, which automatically casts your vote.
And there you have it! You’ve voted! Feel free to share the image below to let your friends know! The FIAT brand will provide each of the Top 50 Artists (10 from each genre) with a one-year subscription to the Reverb Pro Package. The brand will award each of the four (4) runners up $3,000 and a Google+ Hangout sponsored and promoted by the FIAT brand. The Grand Prize winner will receive a trip to Miami to appear on VH1’s Top 20 Video Countdown on December 6th (airing on December 14th), $5,000 to spend toward new gear, and a Google+ Hangout sponsored and promoted by the FIAT brand.
