ReverbNation announces Fan Exclusives, an innovative feature that empowers Artists to use their content as a way to gather contact information and demographics from their listeners in exchange for access to full streams or downloads.
“Many Artists have indicated to us that they would like some middle ground between selling a song and just giving it away for free. Information about their Fans and the ability to contact them are critical to an Artist’s ongoing business and have real value for them in terms of landing more gigs and possibly record deals. We see this feature as an opportunity to bridge the gap and provide an alternative to the existing options. It’s also a great way to reward fans for their loyalty,” said Mike Doernberg, CEO of ReverbNation.
Fan Exclusives are enabled on the ReverbNation web site and also in the TuneWidget, ReverbNation’s leading Artist Widget that works on MySpace, home pages, blogs, and virtually any other site. As a result, Artists can use the feature to harvest Fan data all across the web and collect it into one convenient location. In a world where Artists are typically at the mercy of social networks to gain access to their fans, ReverbNation continues to build tools like Fan Exclusives that put Artists in control of their own destiny.
