Below you will find just a few of the ReverbNation Opportunities that we have brokered for our Artists. Artists can find these and more in their OPPORTUNITIES section of their ReverbNation Dashboard!
Our goal is to keep providing value to the Artists at the lowest possible cost. We always try to broker Opportunities with no Submission Fees but sometimes a Promoter needs to charge a Submission Fee and since ReverbNation does NOT take a % of the fee, we often times get a very reduced rate for our artists!
Feel free to share this blog post with your fellow artists! And without further ado,
