News : Goss Community Choir

GossCommunityChoir writes"POP CHOIR NEEDS MORE VOICES
Ok, so when you hear the word choir, you might be thinking a church group, or a classical choir, or maybe something you may have tried out for in school..

Before you hit the Back button... we invite you to read on as we think we might change your mind... gOSs Community choir is not your average choir. 

Kings of Leon, Goyte, Roy Orbison, Lady Gaga, Toto, Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, Metallica, Alice Cooper, Bruno Mars, Mariah Carey, Eric Clapton, Queen, Beatles ... yep these are just some of the artists we've not just covered, but put our own flavour to..  If we've got your attention now please feel free to read on...
  • There is NO AUDITION process
  • You don't need to read music or have any singing experience. You'll be in a group of friendly people who'll be happy to help if you get stuck.
  • If you're looking for a fun and friendly group to socialise with, you'll definitely fit in here.
  • If you're aged anywhere between 16 and 600 years old then you qualify to join.
  • If you fancy a nice tea break in between courtesy of gOSs, we got it covered.
  • Finally ..... all this costs a whopping $5 per session... No, that's not a mis-print! ONLY FIVE DOLLARS a session.
Also, you'll get some great opportunities to perform. This choir is really making a name for itself in Melbourne. We've opened the National Festival of Choirs Grand Finale Concert alongside Jonathon Welch, and sung at several reputable locations including the beautiful Werribee Mansion.

If this all sounds good to you, we invite to take your voice out of the shower, and bring it along to one of our rehearsals.

Accounting & Business Management : Learning The Techniques And Strategies Of Internet Marketing

MICKoWAR writes"

One of the most recent methods of selling products and promoting service is to hire a freelance writer for writing copy on the internet. It can be a great marketing technique that teaches you how to be effective in sales and uses the skills and ability of these writers to help you create good internet marketing strategy. Despite the cost of an expert writer, the results will almost always be superior to trying to write copy yourself. This is especially true if your experience is limited. 

The primary consideration for hiring someone for copywriting is successful sales results. Products and services that are not properly displayed on sales pages cannot be sold online. Even if the item you sell is fantastic, it is necessary to get potential customers to see it.

A qualified copywriter produces a significant difference.

The typical copywriter will probably get a .5 - 1 percent rate of conversion from sales page. Hiring an expert writer can often increase your conversion to over 2 percent. The difference may not seem significant; however, this change would result in an increase of profit of about 400 percent.

Good copywriting helps provide work that is grammatically correct, which is essential for a successful sales writer. Those that can produce good business letters do not automatically create the same type of sales letter. 

Copywriters are not all alike

Since all writers are not alike, when you are ready to hire one, use the following guidelines.

Request a portfolio

Most qualified copywriters keep a sample of their work online. Looking at their examples of sales letters helps you to assess their ability and knowledge of writing copy.

Make certain of their price

At times copywriters quote a particular price for their work, but do not mention or state extra fees for revising or changing the copy at a customer's request. Find this information out at the beginning so that you can make good estimates of the finished copy. Royalty charges are sometimes expected based on the success of their sales letter.

Check for references

Qualified copywriters will have a list of happy customers and current clients you can check with. 

Inquire about the copywriter's success and past results

The most important assessment of a copywriter is a measure of the success he provides and the increase of sales and lead generation. 

Internet marketing copywriters  

Another factor in hiring a successful writer is their ability to meet time deadlines consistently. 

Your business might want to consider a small business marketingmarketing strategy for you. They give you more time, flexibility, and timely copy than a larger company that has a sizable customer base.

Ask if the copywriting is sent out to other companies

At times, one company will send their assignments out to another firm for an initial draft and then they will review, edit, and complete the work. The best work can be completed all by the same writer.

Pay attention to the questions they ask you in the beginning.

Good companies may ask more questions upfront so they can produce the right results the first time. A writing business may want to know whether the sales letter should be written for old listeners or young, casual or formal audience, and other considerations.

Find out if they do SEO writing

Good copywriters can offer SEO optimized work for your business website. This type of writing gives sales letters a greater chance of being picked up by a search engine. 

Conclusion

By taking the time to hire a professional, quality freelance writer you can be more successful in your sales results. Though the expense outlay will be higher at the beginning, the sales leads, conversion, and higher profits make it worth your while.

News : Renown Producer David Carr is now taking bookings for June 2012

david_carr_producer writes" "An impressive sound" -Sylvia Massey
"David Carr is a like a secret you whisper to your friends. A musician's musician, he plays like an angel, engineers like the devil, and lifts to the sky any song he graces with his touch". -Neil Brennan
A talented multi-instrumentalist in his own right, David Carr's mission as a Record Producer is to make every Production hold it's own, both artistically and sonically, against the world's stage and all within an Australian budget. 
He brings 25 years of experience and the benefit of having learnt his craft whilst under guidance of experienced producers and engineers- and all of this was paid for by the long gone era of 80's and 90's record company excess.
David has received much praise by way of comparison. He has been called both Australia's Butch Vig and Rick Rubin (the latter for the fact David can be recording a 'roots' outfit one week and Death Metal the next). Contemporaries see parallels to the work of Steve Albini, Brendan O'Brien and Andy Wallace.  Because of these associations it is common for music industry Captains to make many assumptions about David's production sound; that perhaps his mixes were done by Americans, that his studio is all analog tape based or that he mixes on an SSL console. When quizzed about the gear he uses David is quick to point out that what really matters is the creative talents of the engineer. Tools, both new and vintage cannot create sounds and this is why Mr Carr gets the same world class sound regardless of the Studio he is using, tools, location or budget.
Peter Mazlin, A&R at Gotham records suggests David is one hit away from a massive commercial career but despite Peter's observation, David Carr's continuing allegiance to independent Artists is testament to his belief in Producing 'honest' music and the rejection of the "cookie cutter" ethos. 
Some recording highlights:
1994  David's 1st production effort equips artist Paul Colman for a Grammy Nomination.
1997 David works with Linoleum alongside producer Simon Austin from Frente who then signs a deal with Polydor Australia.
1998 David acquires a studio business and begins Rangemaster, an analog and digital recording and Production workshop in Melbourne's East.
1999 David discovers and develops Girl Friday who sign a major deal with Standard/Mushroom
2001 David produces Antiskeptic's memoirs Album and the single Called becomes a JJJ Hottest 100 inclusion at number 11
2002 David produces Skipping Girl Vinegar's 1st and 2nd releases (as Mayfly) They sign to Toupee and receive high rotation airplay.
2003 David is reunited with Paul Colman to engineer his 2nd US release 'One' in Nashville. He develops and produces Paperadio who move for a signing in the UK. David does a national tour as guitarist with Melbourne Icon Deborah Conway.
2004  David produces Kiss Chasy's 'Dark side' EP which receives mainstream airplay and catapults the Band to National success. They sign to John Watson's group.
2005 David produces Antiskeptic's Aurora and the singles Clear to Pass and Nothing to say gain high rotation JJJ play. He mixes Angela's dish 'Lie Die' release and they sign to a major.
2006 David is recruited by Taxiride to co-produce their 3rd Album Axiomatic which delivers the hit 'Oh Yeah'. 
2007 David records and mixes Forgiven Rival's 1st EP which lands them a deal with El Shaddai Records David records ANIM8's debut instrumental album which is praised by the musical community for it's originality and unique production style. Guy Sebastian used David for the Electric guitars on the Elevator Love hit single.
2008 David scores endorsement deals with Flaxwood guitars and CarrAmplifiers David produces and records Bring on the Junta's brutal 1st release and they are snapped up by the Netherlands label Undertow. The Sticks employ David to Mix (read rescue) their EP and they become Kitchen knife Wife.
2009 Big Scary record their debut EP and critically acclaimed follow up with David Carr and they hit the festival circuit, Team Trick Management chooses David Carr to produce and record band John Citizen with the beautiful and talented Eva Pattison. They receive overwhelming Triple J support David Carr develops and produces releases for Sadhana, Carolyn Oates, Cilla-Jane and Ebony Manusama.
2010 David Carr discovers and develops Melbourne artists Ben Abraham who records a 3 track EP. It results in a management bidding war with industry heavy weights climbing over each other to secure this upcoming artist and his product.  David Carr produces record number 2 for Tim Harris who is subsequently short listed for Grey's Anatomy.
In 2012 look out for:
Kitchen Knife Wife The Onfires Creech Earl Rhymada The Steve Turner Project South Side Rebel

News : The Empire

gameover writes"www.facebook.com/theempireofficial

The boys from Dead Lovers Lane are placing their material into archive files and relaunching themselves and their superior sound under the new name - Empire.
After the replacement of two members, the Melbourne based metal band made the decision that a complete overhaul of their original material was needed and returned to the studio for three solid months.
With their bigger and more brutal sound ...now perfected, the relaunch as Empire is in line with the release of the first EP ‘Secrets’, which is so close to completion we can smell the ink on the album cover drying.
In addition to the ex-Dead Lover Lane crew, Nick Dinneen (lead vocals/screams), Josh Devine (rhythm) and Oresti Salter (on the drums) resuming their original positions. Empire would like to introduce their newest editions; Kota Nakamura (lead guitar) and Luke Baird (bass).
Fans should be expecting the same melodic chorus’s strategically weaved in between poignant screams and intoxicating riffs, on a more superior level.
Empire played their first gig together on Friday the 13th January 2012 at Yah Yahs in Collingwood to a full house of torso thrusting fans.
