The NEW Official.fm wants to say helloooo!April 23rd, 2012 | new release, news, official.fm, press release
We’re excited to announce the launch of the NEW official.fm today!
Based on the valuable feedback we have been getting from artists & labels, the team spent the last 10 months working incredibly hard to build a powerful yet easy to use platform for you. It is dedicated to solving some of the biggest pain points in the promotion and management of music online. We think it is a big step forward and we have taken the bold decision of making it FREE.
Intrigued? Discover what we have been working on!
And if you’re looking for something a bit funnier, try this:
The following speaks directly to your needs
Centralize – Manage multiple artists with a single login. All of your releases/projects are accessible on a single dashboard.
Collaborate – By enabling multiple users to access a single artist’s workspace, you can easily share the workload with your bandmates, marketing team, publicist and more. No more sharing passwords and switching accounts.
Unlimited – No limits on plays and downloads. No barriers between your music and your success.
Customize – Control how your music is being presented. Each track or album uploaded comes with a slick public or private promotional page and embeddable HTML5 players, including the ability to add commerce links.
Publish – Simply drag & drop multiple tracks to upload music to your Official.fm account. Then sync to your YouTube and Soundcloud channels and push the music in one go. No more spending hours uploading the same songs to multiple services.
Share – Once you decide to share, you can do so on any website or device. Fans are one click away from listening to and spreading your music.
Stats – Utilize advanced statistics to know where, who, how and when. Collect e-mail addresses for each download and export them to your mailing list.
And yes, it’s all FREE.
We recently completed a private beta of the new platform, with a great community of testers that included Warp Records, Adult Swim imprint Williams Street Records, Ghostly International, Red Bull Records, Fearless Records, RedEye Distribution and many others. The new platform has been utilized to release mixtapes from Rostrum Records’ celebrated rappers Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller; plus the creation of promotional pages for platinum-selling rock artist AWOLNATION (Red Bull Records), and E-funk duo Soul Clap (Wolf + Lamb).
But don’t just take it from us. As Eric Henry from Rostrum Records says “Official.fm offers us an amazing platform to connect with our artists’ communities and build their brands even further through custom designed players and pages, links to their sites, and integration into their social networks. Our artists, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, were both personally thrilled with the way Official.fm launched their new mixtapes, handling the unbelievable amount of traffic with ease.”
Thank you all for your support. It means the world to us.
