Palm Beach, Brisbane Australia (PressExposure) February 26, 2007 -- The majority of social networking features on Artistic-Pursuit.com are provided free to registered users. Subscribers also gain access to advanced social networking features for free, including greeting cards, personal ads, an advice column, e-mail, blogs, forums, and classified ads. By upgrading to subscriber status, one can access premium artistic content and get unlimited downloads.
Users may subscribe for a minimal annual fee of $5.00 to gain full access to premium content from artists. This cost is equivalent to less than 3 months subscription fees charged by pure profit oriented social networks such as ArtisticPursuit.com. Artistic Pursuit feels that its users deserve an affordable alternative to comparable Internet options available.
Artistic Pursuit differentiates its site from other content sites by allowing paid subscribers to upload content for consideration for the Top 100 Lists for videos, music, literature, images and online games. ArtisticPursuit.com publishes this listing each month with fresh new talent that has been reviewed for quality. Subscribers who have content selected for the Top 100 are paid for their content. Paid subscribers also have exclusive rights to enter contests, including the current music challenge that will award a demo recording contract to one winner this summer. Registered users who are non-paying subscribers can also upload and share content in the listings sections.
"Artistic Pursuit has learned a great deal from pioneers in both the artistic and social networking arenas, including MySpace and YouTube," says Alexander Shelton, sales man Artistic Pursuit. "The site wants to create a place for artists and fans that includes several social networking options accessible from one site, and then leverage these connection tools to discover and promote new artistic talent."
"We're building something like an Autralian artists' colony," says Paul Alliott, CEO Artistic Pursuit. We have spent time and money to make this portal and the cool thing about it is that we've invited artists, fans and anyone else who wants to join us to come along."
The mission of ArtisticPursuit.com is to become the premier online destination for artists and fans to connect worldwide.
