Rappin’ with the King and QueenMarch 8, 2013
Musicians and performing artists are great users of social networks. The like / share / link functionality, the integraton of video, and the calls to action which link to websites and sales are ideal for promoting music.
Throughout 2012, Ru C.L travelled from Australia to the UK and Jamaica and used Facebook and other social networks to share thoughts, photos, videos and music with his fellow musicians, friends and fans.
Another recording artist engaging with her fan base is the New Zealand’s “Queen of Loops”, Mihirangi.
“I wanted to share this song with you all… it’s off the new album “Somebody Shake The Tree”… I’d love to get some feedback so in return I’m offering it as a FREE download for the next 48 hours… I hope you like… it’s one of my favourite songs on the album… ENJOY!”
Mihirangi gained her first ‘big break’ when she wowed “New Zealand’s Got Talent” judges with her live improvisational looping, using mutliple channel sampling and replaying. Many people outside New Zealand may have encountered her though YouTube where the video of her performance got traction, and discovered more on the Mihirangi website.
The impact and power of social networks should not be underestimated. If the members of a social network were equated to a single country, Facebook would the the world’s third largest country by population!
Where consumers live, retailers and brands are sure to follow. Consider television ads for new movie releases. The URL at the end of these is now more likely tobe a Facebook page than a movie website.
Many corporates are also utilising social media as a part of an eStrategy to communicate with their stakeholders (internal and external), to promote brand advocates and engage in two-way conversation with their customers, critics and potential customers.
Digital Tsunami assists corporations to navigate the social media maze, determine which platforms are most suitable to your stakeholder engagement and prepare resources and content to contribute. This may include video, mobile sites or apps, and an all-encompassing social media profile.
We’ll listen to you, learn about your business, confirm your requirements and aid you to prepare an effective eStrategy for your brand.
Companies can to connect with the World just as easily as a ‘King’ or a ‘Queen’.

From Our Clients
Once again, thanks for your promptness and partnership.
The current challenge of my job at Abbott is one of the greatest I've faced in 25 years of IT career. It's reassuring to know I can count on people like you when things go wrong.
By taking the time to understand our business, industry and vision, Digital Tsunami created a site that truly reflected our leadership position in the market and our strategic direction.
Digital Tsunami's expertise in visual design, photography, website navigation and business writing, resulted in an extremely effective website.
The project was expertly managed from end to end which resulted in a fast and efficient process.
We have been a client of Digital Tsunami now for a number of years.
As an ASX listed company, we seek reliability with our suppliers. Digital Tsunami have proven they are reliable and trustworthy multiple times.
We host multiple websites and services through them, and use them for technical and creative work.
There has never been an issue, they are always on top of all technical details, and simply provide the best possible solution around a given budget, and get things right first time. Clearly they have excellent quality controls and that shows in their services.
Andrew and his team have supported Foodbank by providing web services for more than a decade.
In fact, they have just undertaken the first complete redevelopment of the original Foodbank website they built for us, and have been maintaining so ably since.
Andrew is creative and passionate and helps us to keep up, constantly looking for new ways to add value and improve our online communications channels.
I have enjoyed working with you on this important project and have been particularly impressed by your company's professionalism. The speed and accuracy of your work has been first rate and your creative input has been instrumental to the success of the project.
