Here are a few great ideas for your cross.tv Artist Account:


  1. Create an artist account by submitting an email address you have access to into the “Enter Email” field on the start page in the upper right corner.

  2. Go to your Mailbox and click on the activation link. Check your spam folder, if you don’t find the activation email in your Inbox within 15 minutes.

  3. Log into your new artist account and use the “invite friends” function to send invitations to all your band members, management, label, friends and fans you want to join your new online family network.

  4. If you are a band, send an invitation to another email address of your own to connect yourself with your artist account. You will then have your personal account connected as a band member to your artist account. Note that you need a different email address for any new cross.tv account you create because your email address is an alternative user name to log in with which could come handy if you forget your user name.

  5. When inviting band members, professional liaisons or friends to join your artist network on cross.tv, simply enter their email address double check for correct spelling and select the RIGHT RELATIONSHIP TYPE. You can invite band members as “Members”, Staff as “Staff Members”, friends as “Friends”, etc. This allows your artist site to reflect “who is who” to your fans and it allows you to share certain media, blogs or private forum access with your band members, staff or management only.

  6. Check with everyone you invited to make sure they understand what it is for, why and how to accept the invitation.

  7. Create and design new pages with text and photos and any information you want to share about your music, events, projects, etc.

  8. Upload videos and photos and share them with your fans and friends or with your band members, staff or management only.

  9. Do a search among the “Artist Channels” under “Videos/Artists & Bands”. There may already exist an Artist channel with your name or band name. Open your channel and click on “Apply for Artist Channel” to send an application to cross.tv to take control over your artist channel. Cross.tv will contact you to verify the legitimacy of your claim with you or your management. This is to ensure, that no one else but you can take charge over your artist channel. Once verified, cross.tv will connect your Artist Channel with your Artist Account, allowing you to add media to it and delete user uploads that are being dropped into your Artist Channel. This way you have control over what is being published about you on cross.tv and gives you the opportunity to replace poor quality user uploads with your own high quality material, to ensure you are “in the right light” always.

  10. Make sure to link to your website from your cross.tv and to your cross.tv from your website. To add a cool, purple “.tv” Button with a link to your cross.tv Artist Account next to your other social network link buttons, go to our “Banners Page” or click here. You will find embeddable .tv Buttons in various sizes.

Connect it with your cross.tv Artist Account to automatically share certain information with your Facebook and/or Twitter contacts whenever you publish it to your cross.tv. You only need to upload something once, publish it on cross.tv and it will automatically be published on your Facebook and/or Twitter as well. This way you don’t have to maintain multiple social network accounts!
