A while back, I found an interesting website at i-Squad.com. The basic premise of it is to gather fans of music groups (and other things, I guess) and allow them to help in the promotion of the music (or other thing). In the case of music groups, one thing you do is request that the artist’s videos be played at the MTV (or BET, or whatever) website. You don’t go to the MTV website though. You do it right from i-Squad – it is quick and easy. There are also polls, quizzes and other member related activities. It is like a virtual street team.

What do I get in return? For every poll you take, correct answer you give and video you request – you get points. These points can be traded in for merchandise (including CDs, apparel, autographed items and more) and surprisingly, the points cost for items is not unattainable. It takes time, but its not crazy. So, it’s pretty cool and a site I wanted to share.

I am in the Bad Boy, Mase and New Edition i-Squad’s right now – if you are interested in them, use my links below and you can earn me a few points.
