Hello, I do have a couple of things;

1 - Technically, you need a better responsive template for multi platforms. When I checked your site on my phone, it didn't translate well.

2 - The about page doesn't have any 'about' information, such as who you are, why are you doing this, what is your story?

3 - I think you need to list a lot more facts to back up your 'Get Discovered' tag. What is the viewership between all your social media channels? What are those channels? What's your following? Do you do anything else to help someone 'get discovered' . What happens if they do get discovered?

It's like of like you have two different identities: one, here's a fun weekly songwriting contest, you might win some prizes, get a little exposure and two, we are professionals who will help get you discovered.

Good luck!

The music business is full of sharks that prey on wannabe songwriters. You have to counter that preconception on your site. Lack of clear information on who you are, what you want, why you do it, how's the legal implications of submitting to your competition, and how submitting will benefit visitors, are essential. But even that kind of full disclosure will only be sufficient IF you provide undeniable evidence that it is also a fact. Find ways to show it, don't (just) tell it. As is, the site looks like a scam to me. Sorry to say, if you are legit, but no point in tucking it under polite blanket terms either, considering the information missing.

Didn't even click, but naming it Melodyme sounds like you're trying to piggyback on the success of Melodyne's popular pitch-correction software; you might get an inflated idea of your site's popularity, due to accidental hits. See my posts elsewhere in these fora about my Youtube site from which I accept zero dollars, despite over 50,000 hits; most are due to some really silly search terms that have zero to do with my content-it was an accident of the title of my very first post.
