TalentSplash is a talent network that helps individuals build their careers. Users can sign up to become available to companies and organizations in need of talent. The community focuses on talent in all its forms, including actors, behind the scenes talent, writers, visual artists, photographers, musicians, filmmakers, comedians, dancers and anyone with extraordinary talents. The homepage showcases upcoming events, hot jobs and recently added splashes. Talent profiles can include images and videos as well as the number of views, talent data and other interesting details. Users can search for talent by name or by browsing people, videos and photos. The site also includes a contests area and a marketplace that lets users create listings for available jobs or for available talent.
TalentSplash was designed to help talented individuals find the people that need them. The application currently offers a number of helpful services as well as a thriving user community that still has a long way to go. The marketplace includes a number of listings, although most are focused in New York City. TalentSplash has also received mentions on other websites, but nothing significant or notable.
TalentSplash is unique because it caters entirely to talented individuals. The site doesn’t restrict its users to one talent category, such as music or acting. Instead it lets users from all talent backgrounds and with all manner of aspirations to join. The site even provides practical features, such as the contests and marketplace areas and user profiles. The community is still growing but TalentSplash has a lot of potential to help users further their careers.
TalentSplash utilizes a red and blue color scheme that adds life to the design. The application stays very professional, with wide open spaces and no clutter or annoying advertisements to get in the user’s way. Profiles and marketplace listings are also kept simple, but this is a good thing because the user can focus on the content rather than what is around it. The website feels modern and lets users navigate smoothly from one area to the next.
New users can join the TalentSplash community by clicking the red “Sign Up, It’s Free” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. A pop up box appears with the registration form. The form asks for the user type (talent, fan or businesses), along with a name, email address, password, gender and birthday. The user must also indicate whether that are an individual or part of a band or group. A blue button is also available at the bottom of the form for users who prefer to sign up with their Facebook account. The user is automatically logged in to their account.
TalentSplash invites anyone and everyone to join its ranks for free. There are no subscription fees and the user doesn’t have to pay anything to create a profile or list talent or jobs in the marketplace. The free access makes TalentSplash accessible to everyone, which can be a good thing for new talent looking to get a foothold. No purchases are required and all users receive access to all the same features.
TalentSplash is a helpful resource for anyone who has a talent they want to market as well as anyone in need of talent. Users can visit the marketplace to search for jobs or list talent as available. The site also caters to talented individuals by letting users swap or sell items to help them further projects and careers. The design is professional and nurtures a generally positive experience for everyone.
