1,000,000th Band Joins ReverbNation – Company attributes success to its ‘Artist First’ approach to business

(Durham, NC – December 15th, 2010) ReverbNation, the leading Marketing and Promotion Platform for Musicians, Labels, Managers and Venues, and creator of ‘My Band’ the leading Facebook application for Bands and Musicians, registered the 1 millionth Artist to the platform yesterday.  The lucky Artist, PANA! a latin band from Stamford, CT will receive a package of free services and merchandise from the company to commemorate the event.

ReverbNation was launched in 2006 with a mission to provide Bands and solo Artists from any walk of life with the powerful business tools they need to be competitive in the social media age.  Many of the tools are free, with premium tools offered under a software-as-a-service model.  In recent years, the company has expanded its offering to include securing high quality opportunities for the Artists in the form of coveted licensing deals, lucrative brand sponsorship programs, and high-profile gigs.

Co-founder and chief executive officer Mike Doernberg explains the key to the company’s success, “We have always focused on serving the needs of the Artist, sometimes to a fault.  We align our success with theirs, both philosophically and literally within our products.  Our software products are built from scratch for the Artists, not modified from some other purpose.  And the opportunities we provide are carefully selected because of the real value they can deliver for the Artist.”

Jed Carlson, co-founder and chief operating officer, adds “Much of our success can be attributed to our products and processes.  We get to observe hundreds of thousands of Artists running marketing and promotion ‘experiments’ on the web, measure what works and what doesn’t, and bake the best practices into our solutions for all Artists.  This process has enabled us to continually evolve our products as new opportunities for marketing and promoting music arise.  As a result, Artists think of us more as their long-term marketing partner than a website with static tools.”

    I think you guy do a great job so kudos to you. But I was wondering, ReverbNation ranks all of their bands, correct? So if you do a search for All genres and select the focus as Global you will find the the last page you stop on is 25848 which puts the last band at the ranking 646,184. Here is the url http://www.reverbnation.com/controller/main/bes_chart?genre=all&genre_geo=Global&page=25848. Maybe you do not rank every artist but I thought you did. Reverb is a great resource and good for the artists but it would be nice to understand how you calculate the number of bands and if they are referring to active or total since their beginning. Not knocking you guys but just wondering how you arrived at 1,000,000.

    Glad to see the community over here reach 1,000,000 artists.
    I was among the 1st 200,000 and have spread the word to all others that may find it useful while watching the user base grow with consistency from a useful network of tools, to becoming the official chart system for all local music scenes.
    And especially since myspace dropped the ball on their local charts this has helped to make the service even more relevant nowdays.

    That’s amazing news, but I would like to know more about what ReverbNation is doing to attract its 1 millionth user who has signed up as a Fan? Without fans, users signed up as Artists are just marketing at each other.
