Earning and using Indie Points on TheIndie.biz
Recently, we have received a number of inquiries about how Indie Points are earned, and how can they be used? So, today I want to review with everyone what indie points are, how they are earned and how they can be used on The Indie.
What are Indie Points
Indie Points are a unique, social currency system designed to provide registered artists, and registered fans with a simple, fun and exciting way to interact with TheIndie.biz. In short, indie points allow registered users to trade points for valuable service, prizes and rewards.
How Are Indie Points Earned?
We’ve made it easy for users of The Indie to earn Indie Points. However, only logged in artists can earn and use indie points. Once, a user has logged into The Indie (or any of its applications on Facebook, Myspace, Bebo, etc) earning indie points are easy and fun. In short, a user earns indie points by performing (almost any action) actions while logged in on The Indie. These actions include (but are not limited to):
- Have your song played
- Listening to a song
- Sharing a song
- Adding a show
- Recommending a show
- Inviting a friend
- Posting a photo
- Sharing a photo
- Adding a video
- Playing a video
- Sharing a video
Almost any action you perform on The Indie will earn you indie point. More importantly, different actions have different values. So be sure to perform different actions to achieve the maximum number of Indie Points.
What can you use Indie Points for?
Again, its important to point out that all registered users can use their Indie Points. That said, your Indie Points can be used in variety ways (depending on the type of account you have). Fans will be able to use indie points to participate in exclusive contest, free give aways, and to attend cool performances. Artists, on the other hand, can use their indie points to promote music, secure ad campaigns, and to purchase radio airplay. In short, Indie Points have been designed to create valuable services for both audiences.
