Musicians Take Notes at Nashville Church of Scientology
In looking for help, it is natural to visit a church. But to find advice on how to market your career as an artist? That's new.
- (1888PressRelease) October 07, 2011 - The Church of Scientology recently hosted a seminar with SEO genius Tony Rockliff who gave tips and tricks to boosting success as an artist through the Internet. The seminar focused on marketing with tools such as Facebook, Youtube, Reverbnation, podcasts and more.
In 1995, before there was any talk of SEO or social media, Rockliff created Cybertown, an on-line social networking community of people from 155 countries interacting in a 3D Virtual Reality off-world town, set about 100 years in the future. Using Rockliff's own SEO campaigns, Cybertown grew to 1.3 million members, was receiving 1.5 billion hits a year and was in the top 2500 sites in the world in terms of traffic at that time according to his website, www.bestinternetmarketingsecrets.org.
His website attracted partnerships with USA Network's Sci-fi Channel, Sony Interactive, Intel, Hallmark Entertainment, Warner Brothers, Star Trek and others and was growing at a rate of 400% per annum at its peak.
Rockliff has been the featured speaker on SEO, niche affiliate marketing and the dynamics of Internet social community building at conferences around the world, as well as the seminars he delivers to help musicians further their career.
More than thirty people attended his seminar to discover new ways to market themselves in the music industry, and many left with a positive outlook on how to accomplish this. One of the attendees reported learning "how to better use the Internet and understand the power of the artist." Another said, "I feel this is a new beginning of a new way of life--all life--beyond music."
President of the Church of Scientology, Corinne Sullivan, summed up why the church would host the seminar: "Our founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote a great deal about the artists in society. They are the ones who uplift people and set trends and these people deserve to be helped."
