EXCITING NEWS ON THE PILOT LAUNCH OF WWW.FARGOTUBE.COM

Dear FargoTube Subscriber,

There has always been, and will always be, a battle among creative’s over art vs. commerce. Sure, creativity is empowering in itself, yet even to those artists who seek to be rewarded in ways other than money, it is only fair to have the option of empowering yourself by taking the creative talent that you have put into your video content, and monetizing it through social media.

However, in today’s world of social media, more and more people have become addicted to giving away free content. To the infinite army of creative’s who have become strung out on feeding the internet but seeing no return, FargoTube announces that is time for a financial intervention.

We are now extremely excited to announce that FargoTube has entered a new phase, limited customer pilot.

As a registered subscriber, you are invited to participate in this pilot program, which is scheduled to last until mid-June. During this time, you have full access to all features and functionality of FargoTube. We encourage you to begin building your own personalized Tube, uploading your video content and inviting users to begin viewing your content.

Our objective during this limited customer pilot is to gather valuable feedback from real users like you and update the system on a daily basis to address any issues that may arise.
