ReverbNation Adds Spotify, Last.fm, Zune, MySpace Music, Wal-Mart, and Dozens More Retailers to Its Flat-Fee Digital Distribution Product for Bands

ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform used by more than 650,000 artists/bands, labels, managers and venues, has announced the launch of the world’s most comprehensive digital distribution product for Artists and Record Labels who seek to place their music into online retailers without giving up any ownership rights or any percentage of the sales royalties from their music.

Artists and record labels can now choose from two pre-packaged offerings from ReverbNation:

The “Essentials” Package – $34.95 per release, 29 sites
Submits a release to iTunes (worldwide), Amazon Mp3, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster, MySpace Music, Last.fm, Spotify, Zune, iLike, MOG, Tesco, La Curacao, Synacor, GetPlaylists, Secure Media, Intertech Media, InMotion Entertainment, WaTunes, Get Green Music, Immergent, and Moozone. See all retailers >>

The “Pro” Package – $59.95 per release, 39 sites
Includes submission to all of the stores in the Essentials package, plus submission to Nokia, Lala, Wal-Mart (Liquid), Amie Street, We7, Myxer, Puretracks, ThinkIndie, and Shockhound, and digital delivery to Pandora (for their convenience only, no guarantee that they will consider or review the music).

Artists who have released music under ReverbNation’s previous Basic package can upgrade to the Essentials package at no additional charge.  Annual renewal fees apply to either package.

“Artists and independent record labels need an on-ramp into the most important retailers and music streaming services of our day, without having to give up their rights or a percentage of royalties,” said Lou Plaia, co-founder and vice president of music industry relations at ReverbNation.com. “Our new service gives them the access and reach that has been historically limited to the major record labels.”

    I already usue Tunecore as my digital aggregator. Too bad that ReverbNation won’t allow my to just fill in the gaps with stores that Tunecore doesn’t offer. Instead, I understand that ReverbNation requires that all stores go through them in order to take advantage of the package

    @Cagle & Nash,

    Submitting via ReverbNation could have the desired effect you are seeking. The retailers that overlap with the ones that Tunecore provides will either:

    1. Ignore the submission we send them (b/c they already have it from tunecore)
    or
    2. Overwrite the release with the one we send them (which will simply have the effect of moving your royalty collection from Tunecore to ReverbNation).
    or
    3. Display both release if you have different UPC or ISRC codes for each. Important to add in the UPC and ISRC with our service to overcome this issue.

    If done right, you should get the desired effect of having ‘complete coverage’. Hope that makes sense.

    Hi Venom — you’re best bet is to reach out to the guys in support — support [at] reverbnation.com and they’ll help you out with that.

  13. How Do I get the at-Fee Digital Distribution Product for Bands?

  14. Shelly says:

    At this time, we don’t offer a free Digital Distribution option, but you can find out more about the service here: http://www.reverbnation.com/main/overview_artist?feature=distribution
