The TR Mission to seek out the best talents of every type in the world and to bring music, the arts, and entertainment to the less fortunate of the world, the homeless, the abused and battered, the sick and afflicted, those without families, and to cultivate their talents and gifts encouraging expert abilities.  We especially want to bring quality entertainment to our war veterans and heroes who have fought valiantly for the freedoms we all too often take for granted because it is music, the arts, and entertainment that heals.  


TALENTRATERS (TR) MAGAZINE



TR MAGAZINE is a magazine that specifically features professional and celebrity talents of every type and top rock bands throughout the world. Our definition of a professional talent is an individual possessing superior skills and abilities in their talent category and one who makes quality content a priority, and of course a celebrity being an individual who is famous or a very well-known person. TalentRaters typically scouts professional and celebrity artists and talents and invites them for interviews for TR MAGAZINE, but we also welcome walk-ins that email us via info@talentraters.com or via our Contact Us page with their interest to be featured in TR MAGAZINE.  To get featured in this magazine, artists/talents must purchhase one of our 4 Plans offered with our cheapest Plan being the TR Starter Plan which requires artists/talents to purchase 14 magazines which will aid in the circulation of their stories. TR MAGAZINE is a premier magazine so HD or better images (k4) and videos are required as well as mastered songs. We also require Artists and Talents being featured in TR MAGAZINE to Register For Free allowing us to best showcase and promote them and feature their videos and songs in our Featured Videos Section on the TalentRaters homepage. Since TR MAGAZINE was created and launched by Founder, Joseph C. Bennett, in the fall of 2016, it has been an absolute hit! TR MAGAZINE has been booked a month to a month in a half out at all times showing how serious Artists and Talents are about PR Opportunities and getting their stories out.


INTERVIEWS


TR MAGAZINE conducts 4 types of interviews 1) Paper (most common) 2) Telephone 3) Live Skype and 4) Live Interviews. With paper interviews Artists and Talents showing interest will be asked to provide their email, TalentRaters will then provide the Artist or Talent with a series of interview questions in MS Word, interview instructions, and a photographer/videographer release form. Artists and Talents requesting telephone or live Skype interviews will be provided paper interview questions also, the only difference is that for telephone and live video Skype interviews they will be recorded. Travel, lodging, and interview expenses must be negotiated by all interested parties with TalentRaters, Inc. in advance to conducting the interview(s). Once the Artist's or Talent’s articles are published, TalentRaters will share it to all of their social media sites. It is important that the Artist or Talent assist by posting their article link to their social pages and sharing throughout social media and beyond also.

DONATIONS


So much work goes into preparing and writing the articles for Artists and Talents for Free. We ask that you please donate what you are capable of. We also ask that you purchase the digital and printed magazine issues as they are released. Being featured in a magazine publication is a very big deal. Every bit helps us to operate and to continue to provide this great resource to Artists and Talentsfor many years to come and we truly appreciate your contribution. The cost of the printed magazine will be high to start given smaller orders, but as demand goes up and magazine orders increase significantly, the cost per printed issue will go down. Let's work together to make that a reality.


TALENTRATERS HIRING/Booking



This feature will exists on our TR IOS and Android apps which will be completed on or before March 12, 2018.  Once the new TR Apps release, the TR PC version will be a simple basic version and all hiring and booking will be accomplished via our full version apps.


FUTURE PLANS



As TalentRaters grows it is our desire to produce Artists and Talents that have demonstrated outstanding abilities and proven that they have what it takes to make it in the entertainment industry. We also hope to have instructors that can help develop Artists and Talents. We want to have events where Artists and Talents can perform and also connect with each other as well as industry executives, and assist them in building their audiences. Lastly, we want to meet with our domestic (U.S.) and international artists and help them grow and develop as artists,talents, entertainers, and performers in their countries.  We are working with the Saint Peter's Boys Orphanage (ages 13 - 18) located in North New Jersey with the intent to help make a  lasting difference in their lives.  We are also interested in collaborating with other charitable organizations as time moves forward and opportunities arise.



TalentRaters is a family owned company; its owners have both artistic ability and an understanding of what it is to be a working artist. We work for you and we want you to succeed.
