Tuesday Tips: Meet Ups

Tuesday Tips is part of our Smule Inspire program. Through shared performances, tips, guest blog posts by veteran users, we hope that Smule Inspire will do just as its name implies: inspire all users in the community – to connect, collaborate, and create music together … ultimately to have the best experience possible on Smule.

Q: How do I throw a successful meet up

“Well most importantly lots of snacks!!!

Haha just kidding…. Kinda 😋 I think key is location and making sure the location has good and economical transport in and out.” –Sarah_TV 

“Constant communication is key and always be open to unexpected changes leading up to the meet up. Once the first meet up is a success then the comfort level can continue to grow for future meet ups.” – xGotti

“I agree with Sarah, location, location, location! Make it clear on directions and where you’re meeting, stay in communication, create a chat, get people hyped!” – JeffreyAKG_TV

“Hehe! Depending on how big the meetup will be and how long, make sure you have good help who will actually do the footwork and follow up.
Pick a central location and time of year that most people can attend.
Plan way ahead of time, so if people need to request time off and make travel plans, they have enough time to allot for that. Try to keep everyone in close proximity of one another as far as lodging, and have events/venues planned and setup for each day/night. If it’s a public meet up, make sure to have good advertising and spread the word, either through Singtopia or Smule blog.
Most importantly, Give Smule enough time to send shirts.😬” – Ailina_

I think the relationships you build w/ people before the meet up is the most important part of a meet up. Learning and growing w/ people to the point of feeling as if you want to meet them is an amazing feeling. As far as the rest I think these guys have summed it up pretty well.” – xYego

 

“Successful meet up Requirements:
-Create a group chat/Facebook group with the people you are planning to meet.
-Pick a date that majority of the group can agree on (preferably months in adavance)
-Find a location that is convenient for you and other and agree on that location.
-make sure that location is FUN
-if you are going to a place that involves making purchases, let the group know what what they would need to bring monetarily
-Use chat or group frequently enough to get to know each other and make each other feel comfortable about the meet up, BOND!
– Contact smule ( Victoria) for shirts lol
-Again keep your meet up chat or group active so that people won’t forget to keep the meetup on their calendars especially as the date approaches
-MAJOR KEY have FUN and Respect each other and be safe!” –WordChris

“The only thing I would add to this is plan a shaving cream war. 😉” –Hoonhans_DavidK

Bookmark Invites on Sing iOS

00_bookm_billboard_1280x668

Exciting news for Sing! iOS users: Now you can bookmark invites you’d like to join later!

Have you ever lost track of an invite that you wanted to join? Or forgot about one until it was too late?  As one of the most requested features from our community, bookmarking invites will allow you to track those you want to join in one place, easily keeping tabs on how long you have to join. We’re testing this feature on iOS first, and it will come to Sing Android next month.

To bookmark an invite, tap the “…” button from screens you see an invite you want to bookmark. Then choose “Bookmark Invite”:

01_bookm_notification 02_bookm_chat

 

03_bookm_feed 04_bookm_feed_bookmarking

Your bookmarks will be privately saved to the Invites tab under your own profile, below the invites you created.

05_bookm_profile

Expired and closed invites will be automatically removed from your bookmark list. To manually remove a bookmark, go to your bookmark list and tap “…” then “Remove Bookmark”.

06_bookm_profile remove 07_bookm_profile_removing

 

We hope this helps you join more collabs and connect with more of your friends. Please email us at support@smule.com if you have any questions or suggestions!

Smule Spotlight: ACE_MUSE

muse

Smule Spotlight: ACE_MUSE

A big ‘Yodelay-hoo-hoo’ from the land of the Sound of music. My name is Mary-Ann and I’m a 28 year old English-student from a little country called Austria, located in the heart of Europe. I’ve been on sing for almost 3 years now and I still love it as much as I did when I first started here! I decided to download Smule because I always loved singing and when I found Smule and tried it for the first time it was like heaven on earth to me! It’s so much more than just a singing app, it’s a place where you can find the best friends in the whole world and so much more. Smule will always be special to me, not only because of the songs I’ve made, the people I’ve met but also because of my Smule group ACE! It’s a small, exclusive group that I’ve created almost 3 years ago with my favorite duet-partner ACE_LOCKSTOCK! All our 60 members are super kind and sweet and they never cease to amaze me with their amazing talent! ACE is like my 2nd family and they mean the world to me! We even have arranged a meet-up in March and we’re all already very excited to see each other in real life! I’m very lucky to have met so many amazing people through Smule! So THANK YOU Smule!! Other than singing I enjoy spending time with my family and pets and of course sports! I love going to the gym, running, dancing, hiking and yoga. I also like photographing, annoying my bestie ACE_RAPUNZEL and most of all I like traveling the world. I simply enjoy getting to know different cultures and seeing all these beautiful countries in the world!

What makes you excited to Sing?

When I find a new song I like and I can’t wait to learn it and sing it! Or when someone asks me to collab with him/her. Singing just makes me happy! Even when I’m sad or angry, music and singing always helps to make me feel better!

Who influences you at this time?

There are many people that have influenced me in some way in my life! At home, my mum has definitely influenced me the most and makes me a better person every day! Then there are people I’ve met on Smule, who now mean the world to me, and they influenced me as well, made me stronger and less shy and crazier than I already am😂 When it comes to singing it is definitely Christina Aguilera! I’ve been a huge fan of her ever since I was a kid. And of course the band MUSE! My Favorite band ever. It’s why I picked my Smule name.

Share a fun fact! 

I like to organize all my DVDs , CDs, books and vinyls in alphabetical order 😂

Favorite quote?

The saying that keeps me going is ‘Don’t stop when you are tired, stop when you are done’.

I like pushing myself to my limits, to improve and learn new things every day and this saying is something I always think of when I have a weak moment and wanna give up.

If you could have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

That’s a tough one! I’d say strawberries but since you asked for a meal I think I’ll go with fish & chips with a huge salat! Yumm!

Smule Spotlight: LVNAA

nvnaa

Hey there, the name’s Lina. I’m from a country that is located in the SouthEast Asia called Malaysia. My hobbies are singing and also horseback riding. I’ve been on sing for a really long time, I could hardly remember when I first started but i’m pretty sure it was around the age of 14 when i started to be more active on Sing!, I’m on Sing! because I usually sing in my bedroom and I find it really fun to just join other Smule users and I have had the chance to meet so many amazing and talented people on the app.

What makes you excited to Sing?

I’ve been busy with college for the past month and that’s what really got me inactive on Sing! but everything has gone smoother and i’ve been back to singing a lot. What makes me excited to sing is whenever I see someone has a favourite song of mine open or when I see a song that I love pops up, that’s when I get really excited.

Who influences you the most?

My mom influences me the most – When I was little, she would put on her favourite band ‘The Carpenters’ and she would sing to me. I’m pretty sure that’s what really got me into singing and loving every moment of it.

Share a personal fact no one would ever guess about you.

Hmm, I would say I can imitate Elmo’s voice? Haha it’s just something I do for fun. I used to do it back in high school to my school friends and they did not like it cause they found it creepy.

Can you share one quote or saying you love, that keeps you going in life?

“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.” – Suzy Kassem

If you could have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

If i could only have one meal, I literally have no clue there’s just way too much food to think about but it would probably be PERi-PERi Chicken from Nandos.
