MeeMix is a Internet Radio Social Network that tries to go for pandora but ends being more of a Deezer like music social network. The last update pushes them away from trying to be pandora and instead go for imeem and ijigg. How so?. now you not only are able to create stations and produce your radio station for your liking but now the focus to share and recommend music has notably increased (imeem) and now if you are an artist you can create your custom radio station and MeeMix profile page. the advantage is that since the music was uploaded by you and is owned by you the radio station you can create has more feature than common created or visited MeeMix radio stations because they don`t require of any restrictions.
But the interesting part of being a artist in MeeMix compared to other places is that they are allowing to extend your personal brand to your blog and social networks via widgets. the widgets provide fan stats for your MeeMix Radio Station.
And also a approval rating widget to check out if people think your are cool. it should be more specific to the music. but what it is these days?.
you can also put a widget that shows your favorite MeeMix radio stations are in order to provide a point of identification for your visitors. it is more probable i would pay attention to your music if i see your like the same music and artist i like.
That is very interesting and a good example of Widget Marketing. i only wish MeeMix site would be better designed and the radio station widget player was not as candy fugly as it is and it would had a more â€œcoolerâ€ look.because if i had to rate their coolness in one of their own approval rating widgets, it would mark below 50% right now.. but the Widget marketing ideas are great. so it is worth a try and have a page there and in iJigg at the same time.
