1. WHAT IS A STREET TEAM?
A street team is a group of individuals who are dedicated to getting the word out on bands and music in your area by word of mouth and using promo materials (stickers, samplers, posters,etc.). Utilizing these materials and putting them in places such as record stores, passing out at shows, shopping malls, schools,etc. Spreading by word of mouth hype is the BEST way to hear about new music because it's coming straight up from one fan to another! The StreetWise street team is known for having the COOLEST kids running the street scene...
2. WHAT IS STREETWISE?
In essence StreetWise is a street team but it extends far beyond that, we are a FAMILY, an entire CULTURE! StreetWise is the hardest street army in the world, and growing! Our team is notorious for always making a HUGE impression wherever we show up! The purpose of what we do at StreetWise is to seek out and select bands of only the highest quality, caliber and substance and bring them to you FIRST before anyone else. We are extremely selective in who we choose to work with! (As many of you know, we TURN DOWN BANDS and labels if our army votes against it!) Thus,we keep our standards high to bring you only the very best music out there (from new bands to established bands). We are providing you guys with a great,unique and fun opportunity to pump up music in general as well as giving you an alternative to the conventional ways of MTV/radio stations just spoon-feeding the masses unto what they dub as HIP. If you haven't realized by now, when we pump something up it BLOWS UP and we do it STreetWise style!!
3. HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST
There is absolutely NO COST to join! Our services are provided to you for FREE!!! All you have to do is sign up.
4. HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR AN
Your first step in becoming an official member of StreetWise Concepts and Culture is to sign up for a membership account. You must sign up for an account FIRST before you can join any of the band teams. It's fast and easy to sign up for an account. Simply go to the main cover page and you'll see the "Join da Street Team" link on the page and you just click on it. Then you will enter your email address and pick out a unique password (you'll need to hang on to that password!!). Once you have done that you will then be taken to our join form. There you will fill out your current info and address as answer a few questions for us. We'll need to have that info so we'll know where to send the promo materials to!! Once you have completed the form you are set to join the band teams!!
5. HOW DO I JOIN THE BAND
Once you've completed the join form you are signed up for an account with Streetwise, BUT you are NOT signed up for any band teams just yet. The actual signing up for band teams is your own personal responsibility as a member. The teams are easy to join though. Just check out the portion of the page for the specific band that you are interested in joining. Somewhere on their page it will say what portion of their team is open (Promo teams or E-Teams). Then you'll just click on that link and it will take you to the page where you can join those teams.
6. WHY ARE SOME OF THE BAND
We only receive a LIMITED amount of promo swag for each band so we have to keep the promo teams as first come,first serve!! These fill up EXTREMELY QUICK, and once they are full we have to close them. They will remain closed until we get more promo swag in from their record labels. If you sleep on signing up for a PROMO team you are going to miss out! So if there's a promo team open that you are dying to get involved with, show your true dedication for that band and sign immediately!! Be sure to always stay tuned to the webpage for any possible promo team openings.
7. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A PROMO TEAM AND AN E-TEAM?
A) PROMO TEAMS- These are teams that involve the actual sending out of promo swag to hype up the bands (sampler tapes,posters,stickers,etc.). Every time a promo team opens or re-opens you have to sign up, even if you had been on that band team in the past.
B) E-TEAMS- These teams give you with most of the benefits of the promo teams. They DO NOT however involve the actual sending out of promotional materials through mail to your house.The main concentration of what the E-Team does is via the web. Signing up for an E-Team will still provide you with all of the latest news on the specified band, tour dates, info on contests, as well as give you the first word on when the promo team will be open once again. (Regardless of whether you are on the PROMO team OR the E-TEAM, you will still be able to get hooked up for shows!!!!!)
8. I WAS ON A BAND TEAM IN
THE PAST, DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE TO RE-SIGN UP EVERY TIME THE TEAMS OPEN??
YES, you are still required to sign up again. This is the only fair way to all of the street team members.
9. CAN I BE ON MORE THAN
ONE TEAM AT A TIME??
Absolutely! You can sign up for as many teams as you like when they are open!
10. I SIGNED UP FOR A TEAM
RECENTLY, BUT WHERE THE HELL IS MY SWAG?
When you do sign up for a promo team, the promo swag isn't going to arrive at your doorstep the very next day or even week after you join. We have to sort through all of the submissions as well as wait for the materials to actually get to us from the band's record labels. So occasionally it may take a little while to process. In that regard,we ask you to please be patient. The materials will eventually get to you and will be well worth the wait!! Note: There are certain situations involving the promo swag that require some immediate assistance. These being if you are going to a show and need promo stuff to pass out ASAP, or if it really has been a long time that you signed up for a team and haven't received anything. If you are involved in any of those instances, please get in touch with Gally: Gally@bestreetwise.com
11. I'M MOVING/CHANGING MY
EMAIL ADDRESS, WHERE CAN I SEND MY UPDATED INFO TO?
You can email this info to Brett at StreetWise: Bvap@bestreetwise.com
12. WHAT'S THIS ABOUT GETTING
HOOKED UP FOR CONCERTS?
We take good care of our teamers!!! One of the ways we say thanks to our teamers for doing such amazing promo work on the streets is getting you guys hooked up for shows of the bands you are helping out. If there's a show in your area of one of the band teams you are on, send an email over to Gally at StreetWise (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he can hook you up! Please be sure to give plenty of advance notice if you are planning on attending a show.
