UKBands.net has recently undergone massive changes that have resulted in a huge shift with regards to the company structure and its day to day running. These changes will continue as they are necessary to ensure the site is developed and maintained to the highest possible standards. The opening of a new office in Newcastle upon Tyne and the employment of 6 new members of staff (from the original 2) gives an indication of our desire to build on the fantastic foundations UKBands.net has created over the last 10 years.
We aim to improve the support we offer to artists & the industry still further; the new developments have been put in place to ensure the smooth running of the site and its re-launch. The aim will be to help our members make more from their promotion via this portal, growing the site further and maximising its full potential.
The time constraints and workload involved in the day to day running of the site have made these changes inevitable, raising the standards in every aspect, from exposure for its members, the functionalities available through to its presentation. These developments have placed major financial constraints on UKBands.net and with that in mind we have taken the decision to offer advertising and sponsorship opportunities within the site to try and offset the various financial burdens we have/ are incurring.
The aim will always be to keep this site non corporate and we will insist that any advertising/ sponsorship must be in the best interests of the site and its members. We understand that the principals and values of the site are very important, as are all the members on the site. We will always do what we think is best for our members, these new changes are aimed at creating a bigger, better and more effective site for everyone concerned.
