Use 'Judge For Me' To Engage Fans And Rank Higher

As Round 2 of the Intel Superstars 2013 battle heats up, it’s a good time to remind our artist community about the “Judge For Me” tool. If you’re not using this when trying to rally your fans, you’re blowing it.

“Judge For Me” allows your fans to come to the site and be guaranteed to see your song or video come up within every five battles. Not using this tool might cause your fans to give up judging, since they’re not seeing you enough.

The easiest way to use this is to search for yourself on OurStage.com. In the search results, you’ll see the “Judge For Me” button to the right of your name. Click on that button, then share the resulting URL with your fans on social media, email, or whatever works for you. Your fans will go right to that page and can select the channel to support you in.

Note that this is for regular judging rounds. Once a competition has advanced to the semi-finals, there are too few artists in competition for this to work accurately and fairly.

Good luck.
