ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for more than 500,000 artists, labels, managers and venues has announced the launch of a new music discovery program called Playlist 7 sponsored by Microsoft Windows. The program will showcase emerging artists from the rock, pop, alternative, hip-hop, latin, jazz, and electronica/dance genres. Music fans from around the world will choose 7 artists each week to appear in ‘Playlist 7’ and receive additional promotion and cash compensation.
“The fans get free music from up and coming artists every week, plus they get to decide which Artists make it to the top of Playlist 7,” said Lou Plaia, vice president of Artist Relations at ReverbNation. “The artists get exposure and cash compensation every step of the way. Everybody wins with Playlist 7.”
ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for more than 500,000 artists, labels, managers and venues, has partnered with a cadre of music-marketing experts to provide an array of marketing services, such as PR, radio outreach, street team development, and Twitter or Google optimization — all under one roof.
Any Artist who has a free ReverbNation account can click on their “Resources” button and find a list of expert publicists and marketing professionals that cater to Artists’ different genres and needs. Artists can then contact these professionals through ReverbNation, and receive proposals for particular services and how they can help the Artist succeed.
ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for more than 450,000 artists, labels, managers and venues, has partnered with Audiolife, the leader in direct-to-fan eCommerce, to create the Reverb Store. The Reverb Store is a complete direct-to-fan eCommerce offering that is accessible to every ReverbNation artist at no charge. The Reverb Store allows artists and record labels to design an unlimited number of physical and digital products online, and then offer them for sale without spending a single dollar up front to generate inventory. The products are produced on-demand when they are ordered, then delivered straight to the fan.
“ReverbNation has been building toward this goal since day one. We wanted to provide a single turnkey solution for the serious musician that allowed them to promote, build and manage a fan-base, and transact business with them,” said Michael Doernberg, CEO of ReverbNation. “Audiolife shared our vision. The Reverb Store allows artists to layer a purchasing opportunity into every fan interaction they have online, whether it’s at Facebook, MySpace, a blog, or the band’s own website.”
Today ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for musicians, announced the launch of ‘Sponsored Songs,’ a new online music distribution program that will give music fans access to unlimited free song downloads from 1,000 artists. Through this innovative pilot program, a passive advertisement is embedded alongside the album cover art that is seen by music fans when they play the song on their computer, portable device or phone. The advertising in Sponsored Songs travels with the fans wherever they enjoy their music — following them onto the subway, going with them to the gym, and showing up at the party — giving the advertiser frequent and regular brand exposure, and the fan free music. Today, the company announced that Microsoft Windows is the first advertiser to participate in this program.
ReverbNation, the preferred music marketing and promotion platform for over 400,000 artists, labels, managers, and venues, has announced a new product called ‘Site Builder’ via a partnership with Montreal, QC-based website software company, Bandzoogle. Site Builder enables Artists to create and deploy websites with just a few, simple clicks, using their existing domain name, or one provided by the company – for less than $20/month.
Site Builder automatically integrates content from the ReverbNation platform, including songs, videos, photos, show schedules, store links, ticket links, and more. In addition, key ReverbNation features like widgets and FanReach (email service) can also be easily integrated into Site Builder.
ReverbNation, the preferred music marketing and promotion platform for over 390,000 artists, labels, managers, and venues, announced today that up to one thousand Artists will be eligible to participate in a new Sponsored Songs program. The program will allow ReverbNation Artists to tap into major brand relationships that are typically elusive. Under the program, participating musicians will be paid $.50 per qualified download acquired by their fans. Each song will incorporate a small section of branded messaging within the digital cover art, which will be displayed to the consumer every time the song is played on music devices.
ReverbNation, the preferred music marketing and promotion platform for over 375,000 artists, labels, managers, and venues, has launched FanReach Pro, a professional version of the popular FanReach email service used by over 80,000 bands to manage fan communications. FanReach Pro is designed from the ground up to help artists, venues and record labels maximize revenue from their email marketing campaigns. Montana Artist The Clintons have already capitalized on FanReach Pro’s automatic fan data finder to provide spirits brand Jim Beam with the information required to land a lucrative and highly competitive sponsorship deal.
“Jim Beam approached us to discuss an endorsement deal. I put together a full report with demographics, fan numbers, and show attendance numbers…. They were very impressed and we’ve landed a huge sponsorship deal. Thanks guys!” said Levi Kujala of The Clintons.
