1. When your project or product is ready for consumption, post it here in CREATE THE BUZZ
example: YOU have new cd coming out at Prosperos bookstore, or some of your stuff is appearing in a show [so store, magazine fashion or art etc.]
Create a thread with your name and your stuff:
Necia's Spring Project Release
tell me where to find it by NAME ie Birdie's
then add an image of your cd.
add a tracklist, or collab list, get really discriptive about what theme the project was created around.
be as creative as you like here (there are good examples all around)
You're done except watching for great feedback and peer questions
REASONS your thread WOULD be removed:
use a /third party businesses logo
show some of their products
give their address and phone number
tell their bio info or talk
THAT'S FREE ADVERTISING for them
This is fine opportunity to say "have you ever considered placing an ad with hiphopkc.com"
Create the BUZZ is about YOU and your creativity as member of the site and the community.
2. If your product or project is still in the vision stage it doesn't belong here. that belongs in WHAT I'M WORKING ON
3. Events have a entire thread devoted to them, no event posts here. need to hype your event last minute use the upcoming events thread
4. Buy Sale Trade Speculate is for equipment, records, services and the like. there is a chance it will be discontinued. Just watching for now to see what happens I'll keep you posted
IF you really get to feeling pride in the site/scene/community, beyond the free advertising you get, I encourage You as an artists + members of the site, to buy advertising to announce your new releases / product/ services/offerings as well.
THIS WAY you know YOUR INVESTMENT IN HIPHOPKC going back into the KC HIPHOP community and will be reinvested into covering the cost of fulfillings hiphopkc.com's mission.

Our Goals are based on break-even kinda non profit thinking in action.
all businesses are doing business and paying for advertising, this is not a new concept. Hiphopkc.com is no different. of course we have no marketing budget so we do link exchanges, ask folks to link to us and tell their friends about us, we talk to local artists person to person about hiphopkc and rely on the kindness of our local media for positive mentions and links to get the word out
if you have done one or all of these we thank you and plan on continuing to be worthy of such actions
feel free to let your vendors, fans and supporters know that Hiphopkc has advertising available.
the sites product is ADVERTISING so far.
yall know thats on the real!
please respect these bounderies, I really gave this a lot of thought. I don't make these types of decisons on a whim.
peace and enjoy
