GifRiff's are musical hooks merged with a GIF, that can either be used to promote an existing song or attract collaboration for a new song or album. Simply follow the instructions below to produce your own GifRiff and discover how this simple format can increase the visibility of you and your music.
Trying to get attention for your music can be tough.
It takes a lot to produce a song and to promote it,
hoping people will spend a full 3 minutes listening to it.
But what if you could promote your riffs in a way that enticed people to follow you, allowed you to create more of them as social content and invited collaboration around your seed ideas?
A GifRiff isn't really not all that technologically innovative, in that they are simply a gif, an audio file, and some text all combined together to promote a song idea in a short segment. But they allow you to promote your music in small Social Media-sized bits, to engage the appetites people have for small bits of Content. And that's powerful!
And if you're still a budding musician or don't have the best recording equipment, it's ok because a GifRiff can be used to attract the kind of attention you want to the thing that matters... the music you hear and share inside your riffs and songwriting themes.
Once you've created a GifRiff, you can share them on social media and add them to your JamRoom profile in the members area to generate visibility, invite collaborators/ songwriters, and generate revenue on our platform.
