Digital Distribution Checklist: Getting Your Release Ready for iTunes, Spotify, and More

Getting your music onto services like iTunes and Spotify is essential to an independent Artist’s complete web presence. We’re proud to offer our Artists a quick and affordable method of digital distribution, and we want to help make sure that your release won’t get rejected by the retailers’ strict guidelines.

With that in mind, we put together a final checklist to make sure that your release meets those requirements and doesn’t end up delayed. Watch the following video, or check out the highlights below.

New Features: Enhanced Email Click Tracking, Free Ping (Apple) Profiles, and Update Your Concert Schedule From Your Phone

This week there are some great new features available for ReverbNation artists.  Check them out below:

1. See which links are most effective on your FanReach emails

When you send an email to your fans, you don’t always know which links are the most effective, or which message resonated. Starting as of June 9th, all FanReach emails sent will track which links in your emails got clicked, and show you how often they were clicked. To access this new feature sign in to FanReach, send your fans an email, and then visit the email history tab to see the clicks. The feature is available to both FanReach Free and FanReach Pro users.


2. Update your show schedule from your iPhone

You can now update your show schedule from your iPhone with the ReverbNation control room app.  The feature lets you add and mange shows, and keep your attendance numbers up to date. The Control room app, and the new show update feature, are still 100% free (the new feature is not yet available for Android, but will be soon). You can download the app by visiting the Apple App Store.

3. FREE Ping profiles available for all Distribution customers

Now all customers of ReverbNation’s Digital Distribution service can have a page on Apple’s social network, Ping. The service does not cost anything extra, is available to all ReverbNation Distribution customers who have a release that is live on iTunes. Simply click on the distribution tab in your control room and look for the yellow banner at the top of your screen. If you don’t have Distribution yet, check visit our Distribution page to find out more.
