FargoTube Launching New Fan Site Services at SXSW

Giving Artists the Tools Necessary to Deliver Their Music and Videos to Fans

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - F3 Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FTCH) announced today that its innovative FargoTube™ social-networking platform for monetizing music and videos is launching (3) three new services to help artists offer professionally designed fan sites.

New Services:

  • Professionally designed FargoTube templates ($9.95/month) - Getting started is now even easier. The combination of professional designs, layouts and navigation lets artists launch a fan site quickly and easily.
  • Custom-designed FargoTube fan sites ($24.95/month) - For artists who wish to create a more personalized fan site, F3 develops a customized tube using the artists' artwork, logo and color schemes.
  • Custom designed websites ($149.95/month) - Leveraging the technology of FargoTube, F3 works with artists to create a completely customized website. This service includes 1 year of free hosting.

"Helping artists build web-based fan sites with little effort or time has been an important focus for us since the beginning of FargoTube," F3 Chief Operating Officer Paul Campbell said. "With these new services, artists can now choose the option that not only meets their budget, but accelerates their ability to deliver their music, videos and films to fans."

FargoTube is a unique direct-to-fan platform and digital marketplace that helps artists reconnect with their fans, something that has been lost in the faceless transaction of today's online store. The interactive set-up empowers them to sell their creations while facilitating direct contact with and among fans and gives them direct control over sales and reliable data about fans' buying habits.

Musicians, filmmakers, remote instructors and other artists can upload their digital media free of charge and then make it available on a per-view, per-file and/or subscription basis, setting prices and receiving 70 percent of the resulting revenue. Moreover, artists can encourage their fans to share rich digital content -- concert footage and live recordings, for example -- with each other, either free of charge or while sharing revenue with the artists.
