ReverbNation Is At It Again!

ReverbNation Adds Distribution to iTunes, Amazon for Any Band
Artists Pay Flat Fee, Keep 100% of Royalty Revenue, Comes with Promotion Tools

ReverbNation (New York, NY – October 14, 2008) ReverbNation, the preferred marketing and promotion platform for over 250,000 musicians, labels, managers and venues, has introduced a low cost ‘On-Ramp’ for musicians and bands that want to get their music for sale on ten of the top digital retailers.

The service allows any Artist to submit their music for sale on iTunes (worldwide), Amazon, Rhapsody, Napster and eMusic for a flat fee of $34.95. Coupled with ReverbNation’s highly acclaimed marketing and promotional tools like FanReach (free email for musicians), Widgets, and Social Network Applications, the service will allow Artists from all walks of life to sell their music AND give them the tools they need to drive sales and grow their revenues from their fan base.

“Our sole focus is to provide Artists, and those that support them, with the tools and technology they need to grow their business and earn money,” said Lou Plaia, vice president of Artist Relations at ReverbNation.com. “Getting music up on the major retailers is important. But Artists need to be able to tie that purchase opportunity into every fan touch point in order to be effective. ReverbNation Artists, labels, and managers already use our marketing and promotion tools to reach 30,000,000 uniques per month. Adding a buying opportunity will help Artists take advantage of the reach they’ve already establshed.”

The service, dubbed simply ‘Digital Distribution,’ is available to every Artist at ReverbNation via their Reverb Toolbox. The feature is powered by INgrooves, a leading distribution technology company who also counts Universal Music Group as a client.

“The world of digital distribution is constantly evolving. We wanted to find a partner that could fulfill our Artist’s needs today as well as tomorrow,” said Mike Doernberg, chief executive officer of ReverbNation. “INgrooves has the technology, credibility, and a focus on building innovative products.”

“ReverbNation has quickly become a leading marketing technology platform for indie artists, and it’s easy to see why,” said Robb McDaniels, president & chief executive officer of INgrooves. “Their creative products and treatment of clients as business partners help to empower artists in the digital world. We are looking forward to ReverbNation and its artists utilizing our technology platform to manage the distribution of their releases around the world.”
