Being a talented artist or creative person is one thing but making a living out of it is another. However, it doesn’t have to be so hard. Husband and wife duo Eddie and Amanda Bankston have set out to build MVP VIBE, a platform where creative individuals can showcase their works, connect with their fans, and make handsome returns from their talents.
MVP VIBE welcomes talented users in various areas ranging from music in various genres to poetry and other forms of artistic expression. The platform gives fans access to hard-to-find catalogs that their favorite talents have curated specifically for them on MVP VIBE. Describing the platform, Eddie Bankston said, “It is a social network devoted to a niche audience, and it gives the users access to just about anything including acoustic soul to cowboy poetry.” MVP VIBE gives artists the chance to earn financial tips for their creative work while gaining access to the platform’s proprietary “Vibe Sessions” and “Vibe Check,” which allows them to develop exclusive content. “The ultimate goal that MVP VIBE strives to achieve is to deliver a tailored experience to the users based on their profiles, tastes, searches, and how they engage with different creative works,” Eddie noted.
MVP VIBE has both a mobile application and web platform for its users to access all its services. The platform is set up to reward talents, and the company encourages every artist, especially independent artists, to grab the opportunity and get things going for themselves as early as possible. The tipping feature allows fans to pay their favorite artists directly for the content they’ve enjoyed while the artists retain ownership of their content. Artists can also import their published content from other platforms and drive traffic to those platforms to gain exposure or make more financial gains.
MVP VIBE presents itself as a much-needed solution in the entertainment industry and a welcome one at that for artists looking to broaden their horizons. “Social platforms today make it difficult for independent artists to grow their fanbase. We offer technology that helps artists get discovered based on user preferences, and they can also earn money through our tipping feature,” Eddie said.
MVP VIBE runs on the energy of its founders, who are both well-versed in two vital domains that a company needs to thrive. One of the founders is Eddie Bankston, an Air Force Veteran who has successfully launched multiple community initiatives and was once a co-founder of an entertainment company that organized concerts, game nights, and live poetry events. On the other hand, Amanda Bankston is a marketing professional with an MBA in marketing with more than 15 years of experience in sales. Together, they’re pulling their weight with experience, expertise, and knowledge to build the next big platform that will serve independent artists on another level.
The couple sees MVP VIBE gaining more than a million users on the app in the next five years. They also intend to host VIBE Festivals and VIBE Awards to recognize independent artists making waves in the industry. In addition, Eddie plans to give back to the community by helping other startups scale, especially in the black community, to infuse some diversity into the tech world.Learn more about MVP VIBE on the official website.
