BandPage Expands Platform Integrations, Adding Twitter, Facebook, Pandora And SoundCloud
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - January 23, 2013 - BandPage is pleased to announce the continued expansion of its robust set of platform integrations, including Twitter, Facebook, SoundCloud, and now the sponsored Concert Listings on Pandora. With these new integrations, BandPage continues to increase the reach of musicians worldwide with more ways for them to engage their fans.
"We use BandPage for all of our artists from POD to Maroon 5. It's awesome to be able to control our online presence with just a few clicks, even better now that Pandora and Twitter are new channels. We're able to spend more time on our online strategy rather than wasting it updating site after site," says Ryan Kravontrka of Career Artist Management.
The Twitter, Facebook and SoundCloud integrations make it possible for artists to manage how they represent themselves on the biggest online social networking sites by updating their profile photo and parts of their bio from within the BandPage editor. The Pandora Concert Listings, which is sponsored by third-party advertisers, allows artists to manage show dates that appear to listeners based on their Pandora stations and location.
"I remember when I was growing up, if I heard a song that resonated with me, it took all sorts of effort to identify the band and find out if, when and where they might be touring. It's exciting to see artist driven companies work together to create a better experience for the fan and make things easier," says Grammy-nominated musician Matisyahu.
"We're always looking to bring more value to artists and we're very proud of these new integrations. These expansions of our platform advance our objective of helping fans connect with the artists they love," says BandPage Founder and CEO J Sider.
BandPage is the musicians' hub for managing their online presence. Used by over 500,000 musicians ranging from local bands to singers and performers like Rihanna, Jimi Hendrix, Arcade Fire and many more, BandPage is a fully-featured solution for musicians to manage their music, tour dates, photos, bio and videos across the web from one central place.
