Recently, there were two articles online that seemed very timely with all that’s going on with the CAMP, outside companies interested in the CAMP and the recent launching of our subscription model for Campers. Now the first of these articles was one that appeared in Variety about a hip hop artists that used social media networks to chart on the Billboard top 10 without a major label deal, radio air play or media coverage*. The second article was on Facebook going public to the tune of 95 billion dollars and the companies that jumped on as early investors*. What these two articles have in common is that they are both major endorsements for why the CAMP is a “no brainer” for any hopeful looking to take their career to a professional level.
In the first article we see how Rapper Hoodie Allen used his marketing training, his tenacity (and a network he spent years building) to sell 27,000 unit’s the week of April 28th 2012. He even quit his full time job to focus on marketing his art (as his job) to one contact at a time over and over. The end result of his faith in himself and his hard work was landing a spot in the Billboard Top 10. Where this becomes a major plug for the CAMP is that what Hoodie had to do all on his own (over the course of years of building a following), the CAMP can do for its members minus all that time and all the hard work.
In other words why do all that building one person at a time, and invest all that time working them when you can have a community of artists supporting artists that can do that for you and more? Now of course I am not discouraging anyone that wants to go totally solo like Hoodie Allen did. However I am of the opinion that if a person has the choice to have no strings attached help with a difficult task versus struggling to the top on their own, they will usually choose the red tape free help.
In the second article (about Facebook) we see why getting in on the launch of a business revolution is so beneficial. Both James Breyer of Accel Partners and Peter Thiel (the co-founder of Paypal) were early investors in Facebook that will also reap huge sums from selling stock as the company goes public. In like manner, early investment from companies supporting the CAMP are also poised to reap royally from their shrewdness in knowing a winning investment when they saw one.
This Facebook article is just another confirmation that the CAMP is an amazing investment opportunity for businesses and artists. As Facebook represented the evolution of social networking from its start with Myspace, the CAMP represents that same evolution from where it is currently with Facebook. The birth of social and business networks that monetarily invest in their network users is new and we are the excited about our role in this pioneering trek.

If you are a business looking to joint venture invest, then reach out now and let’s see what’s possible. Don’t allow this opportunity to get in early, pass you by. Remember that artist that took stock in Facebook instead of the few thousand he was owed for painting their early offices*? Well his stock is estimated to be worth 200 million dollars and he didn’t have all the info we have today to recognize opportunities like this. I repeat, join or invest now, thank us later.
