In today’s world of social media, there are so many ways we can give people a window into our lives — whether it’s an Instagram photo, a Facebook text post, or a Snapchat video. As musicians, this is like gold to your fans. It’s a great way to share your experiences with those who can’t be there in person.
You can post links to your gig and photo recaps after your performance is over, but you can also create a Snapchat Story to really give your fans an exclusive look into what playing a show is like for you, the artist. What do you do backstage? What’s your load-out like? Any pre-show rituals?
We know you’ve been waiting for this, and now it’s here. The HTML5 widget works on you iPhone, iPod, iPad, iWhatever. Like all our widgets it’s completely customizeable so you can match the color scheme and size of your website. Setup is super simple and lets you pick from few different layout options. All artists can grab the HTML5 widget from their widgets and apps section of the control room.
Check out the examples below — thenput one of these new widgets on your website or blog and post links to your site in the comments section.
We have received numerous requests to develop our highly acclaimed Control Room iPhone Application for the Android and Blackberry platforms, and are happy to announce that these applications will be coming soon! That’s right, we heard you loud and clear, and your feedback made it possible! The Control Room Application for Android is expected in mid-April, with the Control Room Application for Blackberry coming in the latter end of that month.
The Control Room Application provides the artist with the latest profile and song stats, as well as the ability to post status updates to Twitter, Facebook and Myspace simultaneously, to collect fan emails at concerts directly through their phone, and to send FanReach email newsletters to fans. These features are priceless, but the application is FREE!
Be on the lookout for official release dates soon!
Our first mobile app is now available in Apple’s App Store. The app allows musicians to collect fan emails at concerts directly through their iPhone, provides the artist with the latest profile and song stats, the ability to post status updates to Twitter, Facebook and Myspace simultaneously, and to send FanReach email newsletters to their fans.
