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
For providing a reliable, fast, and well maintained hosting service for business websites, I recommend Andrew and his company Digital Tsunami. The technical support given has been above and beyond, their hosting the fastest I have experienced, and is very well maintained with no issues.
Andrew certainly bends over backwards for his new and current clients, and I can tell he genuinely cares about providing nothing short of an outstanding service.
Andrew helped us to see the potential of video in bringing our new website to life.
He held our hand through the process, making it as undaunting as possible.
He delivered a great selection of videos (from a one-day shoot), that really tell the Foodbank story and will be a great addition to our communications.
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.
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.
It is clear from the enthusiasm and professionalism shown, that Digital Tsunami views each client as a long term partner contributing ideas above and beyond the development of the site and we look forward to involving them in future marketing initiatives.
Since 2003, Digital Tsunami has collaborated with Personal Broadband Australia to deliver many online solutions, including the latest www.pba.com.au site.
Central to the development process is Digital Tsunami's thorough understanding of the project needs, clear and constant communication, and creative, innovative and meticulous approach to delivering solutions.
The results are clean, intuitive, refined and cohesive, with rapidly loading pages and extremely high usability.
The benefit to PBA of this long-term relationship has been the highly effective way in which Digital Tsunami has implemented and enhanced my vision on every project.
