New Feature is coming - Apr 20, 2022
Beside the use of smileys in messages we are announcing the Profile Success Score which shows your chances of the set-up of your profile for getting a deal.
picture for news item
Imagine, if you go to a business event and stay in the corner. What will be happen? Nothing. Same on Music2Deal. So it´s important to have a good profile incl. a picture. Moreover you need offers and wants to get attraction and moreover they will lead visitors to your profile which might occurs in other business possibilities. Last not least you need business friends which matches to your business.. As it is important to stay in contact with them all your business friends on Music2Deal will be informed about new music offers and wants. But also check out with whom you are business friend. For example If you are a singer without writing songs it makes no sense to be connected to a publisher. So such a business friend will not match to your business and the success rate will not increase. The new feature will be available on the 23th of April
