With Nimbit’s new Promo Tool, it will take you just a few minutes to set up a promotion and best of all, the Promo Tool  will automatically follow up for you with any fan who takes advantage of the promotion.

6 easy steps to Promote Music on Facebook & Twitter with Nimbit’s Roundtrip Promo Tool  

  1. Choose any product from your Nimbit catalog to promote and set whether you want to give it away for free, or sell it at a discount or full price.
  2. Add a link to an optional personal message or music video.  Don’t have a music video or professional video equipment? No problem, you would be surprised at how effective a video of you talking to your fans, filmed only with your phone’s camera can be. It seems more real.
  3. Set the store where you would like the promotion to redeem, this can be your Facebook store, nimbitmusic.com store, or any other URL you have your store embedded.
  4. Choose the time you would like your optional follow up thank you message to be sent and add the text of that message.  You can choose to have the follow up sent the next day, the next week.
  5. Set the date when you would like the promotion to expire
  6. Click in this section to send the promo out on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Remember on Facebook you may want to click this twice to send to fans of your band/musician page and then also send again to your personal friends.  In this area you can also generate links and promo codes for email and download cards,and get the embed code for a widget to put on your website.
Here’s what your fans and friends will see on Facebook

    Still surfing options for a combo site that brings musicians (or students of music), business options, and potential customers together! So, we can meet and practice or create sounds, do promos and offer services or products at reasonable rates, and get some advertising and interest going at the same time! Rent-A-Bod is my company name. Might be controversial for ‘uptights’ from the Bible Belt, or N. Africa (which is why Europe is making immigration harder and harder whether America likes it or not! Wisdom is not always welcomed by all !) So, “Rock On, Y’all !” Another year or so, and I’ll be up and runnin’! See Ya’! jb.
