From my experience I regularly see artists in the post-#100 position playing major club shows, selling CD's, etc. and I've also seen artists in the "top ten" position for cities that are non-existent outside of Reverbnation.

The problem is Reverbnation weighs heavily on metrics that do not represent actual popularity. And the system allows you to basically buy (or for the unemployed people, spam) your way up, so I see the top artists all the time that are most likely trust fund kids or meth heads that can spam 20 hours a day....

But yeah to some extent we all are guilty of selling the dream
Hello, I'm MrEzDoezit from Kansas City, I went to the top of the charts by simply uploading my songs. I have paid absolutely no money and I don't Spam. I send no emails. You generalized everyone but everyone is different and has a different story. I'm not even in this for money. I'm in it for the love of it. I make all my own beats write all my own songs. Basically one man show. 5 yrs and I own Groundup816productions. Moving up on my sounds alone. No money to promote and I don't even like spam. Just saying. That's my story.
