Tech Crunch describes Nimbit as the anti-buzz-kill for the music industry

Tech Crunch describes Nimbit as the anti-buzz-kill for the music industry

Last week, we announced the closing of an additional $1.25 million in funding, and the news is generating some buzz from top tech news sites such as Tech Crunch and BostInnovation.

Rip Empson of Tech Crunch, who calls Nimbit “a one-stop shop for musicians looking to manage TechCrunch Logotheir own direct-to-fan marketing and commercial music efforts,” acknowledges the fact that the business side of music can be a hassle for many musicians, and recommends Nimbit as the panacea, saying “Nimbit removes the time-consuming (and total buzz-killing) commercial aspects of musical enterprise.”

Empson continues: “Quite a few musicians that I know dislike the business side of music and, as seems true of many creative-types, they end up either refusing to participate or do so grudgingly, which makes me think that Nimbit’s services could be very useful to the troubadours and crooners among us — whether they deal in death metal, dub step, or heady acoustic stylings. Plus, the Web is killing (or has killed) traditional music labels, so why not just automate and digitally outsource the process? I know I will.”

Cheryl Morris of BostInnovation agrees that direct-to-fan has emerged as the new model for the music industry.

“Most artists, no matter their level, now realize direct-to-fan is essential to their success. Nimbit’s ‘all-in-one’ platform is built just for this, integrating across the multitude of channels artists now have available to connect with and sell to fans including email, Facebook, MySpace, and even Twitter,” she said.

New Social Gaming Opportunities Emerge for Music Industry

This article was written by Antony Bruno on Billboard.

Social gaming on Facebook is a growing trend that is slowly starting to see more opportunities for the music industry. The most recent development is the official launch of Nightclub City, a game that lets users oversee virtual live music settings.

The game soft-launched in April, meaning it just appeared on Facebook with no marketing and no details about what company was behind it. It’s since gained 4.5 million active users and was ranked by Inside Social Games as the No. 1 Best Facebook Game of 2010.

Today, game development firm Booyah announced it’s behind the game, and is starting the official push for more users and more content. Similar to other popular Facebook games, like Farmville, Nightclub City lets users create and customize a virtual environment – in this case, nightclubs. Players control the look/feel of the dancefloor, the bar, and even pick the tracks played. They can even update and access info from an iPhone app as well.

From the release:
In Booyah’s Nightclub City, players are placed in charge of a modest bar, armed with a wide selection of real-life music tracks and the dream of being the most popular hotspot in town. Players listen to killer music sets powered by real-life artists, ranging from rock to hip hop to electro mixes, as they run their personal club. Each user can also customize the look of their nightclub with decorative items with the ability to hire real-life Facebook friends as bartenders and bouncers as they spin the night away with the latest songs from new artists and bands across the world.

Participating artists license their music to the game, which for now consist primarily of emerging artists, such as “the hip-hop violinist” Miri Ben-Ari. But Booyah wants a lot more music available in the game, and is positioning itself as a music promotional platform to do so. For instance, it says participating artists have seen a 1,000% increase in the number of “like” links on Facebook as a result of their inclusion in the game.

Other music moves in social gaming this week include the developers of Platinum Life extending the hip-hop mogul game to MySpace.

From the release: Platinum Life sets players on a meteoric rise through the hip-hop industry. From the mean streets to penthouse suites, players will complete missions, rock performances and battle other players as an aspiring rapper, DJ or singer to progress through the game.

Platinum Life features some of the top talent in hip-hop, including Ludacris, Omarion, Trina, Shontelle, DJ Skee and more, who players can choose as their Music Icon to guide them through their rise to the top of the industry. As fans return to Platinum Life to continue their progress, they’ll unlock dozens of Achievements that they can brag about to their friends through their online profile.

Coinciding with the MySpace expansion is a Battle of the Sexes contest that pits male users versus female users to see which collectively can earn the most virtual cash. Winners are entered for a chance to see Ludacris in concert. Additionally, Def Jam Recordings is also taking over the game for a period of time, offering in-game virtual items from acts on its roster like the Roots, Big Boi and Rick Ross.


Today is Social Media Day!

Here at Nimbit, we’ll throw a party for just about anything.  First day of Summer?  Break out the margaritas!   It’s Friday?  Time for a beer!   We’ve even gone as far as to hire people based upon birthdate, so we have a weekly excuse for cake.   When we realized that today was Social Media Day, well, quite frankly we weren’t sure how to celebrate.

Instead, we’ve found ourselves becoming a bit reflective on the role social media plays in the life of the marketer, musician, and fan.  It has revolutionized the way information is distributed, rendered the print news industry nearly comatose, and created the ability to have a direct-to-fan relationship with everybody.  There’re no qualifications to who can use Twitter, no barrier to entry, and definitely no restrictions on content beyond the 140 character limit.   So what though?

Well … speaking as someone not -that- old, I remember when doing a mailing for upcoming shows involved actually doing a mailing:  getting cards printed, addressed, stamped, and to the post office.  Social media was a minimally effective, impossibly measured tool, that at best let your friend tell a friend who told a friend who might tell someone else but probably got the band name wrong.

These days, social media is an instantly measurable way to see just how you’re doing.  But again, you already know that.  Like I said, this wasn’t so much a “break out the schnapps” kind of day, more of a reflective “golly, gee…” one.

So while part of the Nimbit staff aspires to drink 140 beers or less, the rest of us are sitting back and marveling at how social media has given the power to promote back to the people.

Talk, share, and discuss — we’re listening.  Happy Social Media Day!


Nimbit Unveils Next Generation Direct-to-Fan Platform

Nimbit Unveils Next Generation Direct-to-Fan Platform

Music industry’s first complete all-in-one solution for marketing, sales, and fan management

HOLLYWOOD, CA—April 21, 2010—Nimbit (www.nimbit.com), the music industry’s premier direct-to-fan provider, announced today nimbitPro™, the first fully integrated solution allowing music professionals to easily manage their entire business from one place.  This next generation platform debuts today at the ASCAP “I Create Music” Expo in Hollywood, CA.

With nimbitPro™, artists and their teams can now capture and manage their entire fan base, execute targeted marketing campaigns, generate direct sales across multiple storefronts and distribution channels, and measure those efforts with detailed real-time analytics — all from one easy to use, integrated, and affordable online dashboard.

“Direct-to-fan is the new business model revitalizing our music industry and benefiting artists at all levels,” explains Bob Cramer, Nimbit CEO.  “Today, nimbitPro™ moves the industry forward in a big way — from individual tools and widgets to one complete solution.  This is exactly what artists and managers have been telling us they need to simplify their lives and make direct–to-fan work for them in the real world.”

With nimbitPro, any artist can now:

  • Pre-sell new releases with high value, special edition VIP bundles
  • Convert fan interactions into direct-to-fan sales
  • Develop fan capture and engagement programs, free tracks for email, and fan rewards
  • Create and schedule marketing campaigns to connect with fans via email, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and SMS

First generation direct-to-fan (D2F) was comprised of independent tools, widgets, social networking sites, and messaging platforms.  It worked well, but required extraordinary time and effort to implement and coordinate.  “We continually talk with artists and managers to keep our focus on real solutions.

The top 10 blunders independent artists make with their web presence

Where ever they are are on the web, there are simple blunders that artists, bands and labels make on their websites, MySpace, Facebook and other social media that turns away potential new fans and stops potential sales of their music. After visiting many artist websites, we found 4-5 of these easy to rectify issues on at least 90% of pages we visited…

So what are the top 10 things that you can do to your online music web presence to make sure you don’t fall into the same trap?

#1 Where is the music?

Have you considered why anyone visits your site. It’s for your music right? OK so where is your music, is it buried on a sub page of your website or is it centre stage with a widget on your home page? Make sure that it is not set to autoplay as visitors may also have other music playing when they land on your page, and there is nothing worse than a cocophony of different songs all playing at once on your PC. At the very least the visitor will switch their sound off, or close your site immediately.

#2 Error 404 Not Found

Broken and mistyped links are the best way of telling visitors you are too busy to attend to your web presence and sending them elsewhere. They’ll probably think that you’ve given up music and will move on. Dont rush the construction of your website, MySpace, Facebook or other online pages. Make sure you take the time to test links carefully, and ask friends to do it too. One of the most common areas that links errors occur are in mailouts or newsletters. Ask a friend to check the links in your newsletter or mailshot BEFORE you send it out, as there is nothing worse than delivering your newsletter twice. At best it looks unprofessional, at worst you’ll get marked as spam by your


#3 How can I contact you?

Do you want to hear from fans, the media, labels, licensing companies, and other opportunities that could further your career? Are you short on people contacting you about your music? Do you have a contact form on your website? No? Aha, so that’s why no-one is getting in touch. You may be a shy muso that spends too much time locked away in the studio, but not putting a contact page on your website you are losing out on potential opportunities for your music every single day.

For some strange reason when people get in touch, they usually favour using a contact form over an email address. Using a contact form on your website is also preferable to using an email link as it avoids spam robots hoovering up your mail address and adding it to mailing lists without your consent.
#4 Are you hiding your beauty, and why is your grandma in the picture?

Humans are funny things. We are a visual race, and the speed of light still outstrips the speed of sound. Our eyes pick up on things way before our ears do, so want to make an impression? Get some photos of you on your website! I can’t tell you how many artists hide behind their music. When a fan comes to your website they want to see YOU. Take the time to invest in some good photographs for your website and make sure that they are well shot, composed and retouched. If you can’t do this yourself either get a friend who’s interested in photography to do it or hire a local professional to do it for you.

Don’t put pictures up from the family album that include your grandma snoring away in the background after one too many sherries, it looks plain silly, and besides people don’t come to your website to see your grandma. The point I am making here though seriously is don’t overlook the photos on your website, make them part of your image. If your playing live, get someone to use a decent camera at the gig, don’t take pictures from a fans phone, they look terrible…

#5 Who needs a website anyway?
Most artists, bands or labels are quite content using their MySpace page as their main web presence which is a great way to start (especially as it very easy for visitors to hear your music using the integrated player – see #1). However laying out a MySpace page is both restrictive and tricky, and whilst you can achieve a lot using a professional designer or MySpace profile design tool, if you want to be taken seriously by the music industry register your own web domain and get a well designed website.

Also have you ever wondered why only people on MySpace contact you on MySpace? That’s because you have to sign in to contact someone on the social network, and not everyone has a MySpace login. So you are cutting out potential contacts if you don’t have an alternative to your MySpace. Don’t get blinkered, get a website.

#6 Information Overload
Keep your website, MySpace, Facebook and other online social media sites to the point. I can’t tell you how many MySpace sites I have seen that post a LONG block of hard to read text all in one place, expecting people to be able to consume the information easily. Keep Bio’s brief and to the point, make sure it only includes relevant information. Make sure you filter only the best reviews, content, pictures, music and other assets for your website, don’t paste everything just to make it

look like you have more background than you have.

Less is more, and posting every tenuous piece of information on your web presence will make your page look cluttered, desperate and unprofessional. Keep it clean, and keep it high quality (Extra tip, if you are dyslexic or just can’t plain spell get someone from Elance to proof read your website – lots of typos make your website look totally unprofessional).

#7 Why do I care if you are in the local “Young Farmers” association?
Keep your music website on topic. Whilst background information in your Bio may be useful if you are targeting a certain type of fan and want them to feel an affinity with you, it is not helpful to post the latest updates on Swine Flu, or other non music related information on your website. Visitors will have probably found your website from another online source and are expecting it to deliver what they came there for – your music, so make sure the content of your bands website contains

relevant information that serves the visitor’s expectations.

#8 I’ve got an ego and I’m gonna use it.
There is nothing that turns off fans and potential sales than a misplaced ego. Whilst its important to be confident, getting high and mighty about how great your music is, when you haven’t even mixed, mastered or fixed that dodgy vocal makes you look silly – period. Make sure that everything about your music really lives up to how you present it online, otherwise the world will take Dionne Warwick’s advice and just “Walk On By”.

#9 Your mail could not be delivered.

Are you short on responses from that newsletter you send out every month. Not had anyone contact you for months about your music? Does no one love me or my music? Check your email is actually working. The amount of bouncebacks that we receive when contacting bands is amazing. If you set up a website and get an email address for your band, make sure it is active, and set it up in Outlook or Outlook Express. Check it regularly, and also send yourself regular test email to check your mailserver is working, esp

ecially just before important mailouts or newsletters. This is especially important if you don’t normally use the band email every day. Quick extra tip here, don’t use a hotmail or free provider address for your band, it looks naff and shows a total lack of professionalism.

#10 If you’d like to come to the cash desk sir…
Have you ever tried to buy your own music from your website? About 90% of all online music sales are lost simply because there is no option to buy on your web presence when visitors like your music. “But its obvious it’s on iTunes” says the band, but it’s not. If I have to fire up iTunes search for your tracks, before I even get my credit card out then the likeliehood of me purchasing your music is pretty slim. Make it uber easy for people to buy your music by putting clear links (with store logos for brand trust affirmation) directly to the purchase page on the online stores.

Make sure you link to a number of different stores, such as iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, and other options if they are available to you. Try out sites such as Nimbit, Website Music Player, ReverbNation shop widgets, or other online storefronts too which could help drive sales. At the end of the day if you don’t have the ability to purchase from your website or other online touch points, you’re leaving money on the table.

Improve Your Online Presence

D2FU Part Four:  Improving Your Online Presence

A successful online presence takes a lot of planning, a lot of strategy, and a decent amount of time.  But if you do it right, the benefits to your career are huge.  Here are some basic D2F-U (Direct to Fan University) ideas to keep in mind:

Make Your Online Presence Manageable

You should provide the minimal amount of content that needs constant updating, and always lead traffic back to your website where the “official” source of information is located.  The less places and items you need to update, the easier you’ll find keeping things current.   At every turn, don’t take on more than you can properly maintain.  It doesn’t help to have 10 lackluster profiles all over the place, but 2 or 3 that’re quality could make a big difference.  Keep lesser profiles simple, and refer traffic to the more impressive sites.

What Do You Put Where?

Ask yourself – how are people finding me, and what content are they looking for?  For example, if you know that bookers and promoters are the primary visitors to your MySpace page, make sure the content is relevant to them (gig calendar, stage plot, etc.), and provide the contact information to book you.

Keep a List of Logins and Passwords!

Everybody forgets something sometime.  GoogleDocs make it very easy to keep an updated list of where your profiles/pages are and how to update them.  Share the doc with everyone on your team, and nobody will be asking for that password you’ve already forgotten.

Measure and React

Now that you’ve taken the time to create websites and profile pages, you need to know if they’re working for you.  Figure out what the key metric is, and check to see how you’re doing.  If you’re tracking number of fans on Facebook, see if those numbers are growing – and if not, what’re you going to do differently?  GoogleAnalytics is a fantastic tool for measuring all aspects of website traffic and visitors, and it’s free.  It will become your best friend.  Running different promotional campaigns on different channels to see which resonates is very useful.  For example, we’ve found that a free track given away on Facebook is 10x more effective in creating a sale than one given away on MySpace.  Be sure to measure the effectiveness of a promotion on different sites – and act/react accordingly.

Create Work For Your Fans – Not For You!

Instead of blogging every minute and answering every question, elicit fans to comment on a particular song, and let them read each other’s comments instead of asking you questions.  Give away a free track and encourage fans to share it – let them do the work instead of you needing to be involved in every single transaction.

Place a Facebook Store Link Wherever You Can

As a sample strategy, Facebook is a great platform for fan engagement.  So driving traffic to one centralized location can be an effective way to build your fanbase.  Anytime someone purchases your music or redeems a free track, you’ll receive their contact info.  That info is priceless to you as your career grows.

But if they make that purchase on your Facebook store, you’ll also gain them as a “friend” where you can engage with them and build a direct-to-fan relationship.  As an example, Chase Coy was discovered by a LOT of fans on MySpace, but he directed them to his Facebook store where they could purchase and engage with him.

You should always be thinking about where fans discover you, but also where you want them to go and why.  Which platform offers you the best options for sales/engagement/discovery?  The answer is different for everyone, but it’s all part of developing an effective online presence.


Case Study: Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Started with Nimbit: 2009

Background: Formed in 1983, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones are often credited with the creation of the ska-core genre, a form of music that mixes elements of third wave ska and hardcore punk. The band released seven full-length albums, three EPs and a live album while touring continuously before their announcement of a hiatus in December 2003. They reunited in the fall of 2007 and performed at Cambridge’s Middle East club.

At the beginning of this project, the Bosstones had no fan database, an inactive (fan run) Facebook page, and had not released an album in seven years.

Campaign Goals:

  • Recapture fans and build contact database
  • Sell 500 VIP ticket bundles
  • Market new album release to U.S. fanbase, sell 10,000 units
  • Create a basis for future touring, merchandising, and promotion
  • Sell out venue for Hometown Throwdown concert series


Step 1 – (re)Engage Fans: Create multiple entry points for fans to receive free MMB tracks in exchange for offering new/updated contact info.  Provide opportunity to join “VIP” list with exclusive access to pre-sale Hometown Throwdown tickets.

Step 2 – Reasons to buy: Place pre-sale bundles (including tickets and merch) in VIP-only storefront on MMB’s new website.  Bundles have multiple offers/price points:  single ticket, ticket plus CD & vinyl, ticket to 3 shows plus CD & vinyl, t-shirt plus CD & vinyl.

Viral Marketing – What’s Really “Real” About It?

Cliff Goldmacher is a songwriter/engineer/producer/author and owner of recording studios in Nashville and New York City.  Cliff’s articles have been published in EQ, Recording and ProSound News magazines and his eBook “The Songwriter’s Guide To Recording Professional Demos” is available as a free download from his site http://www.cliffgoldmacher.com/ebook.

The Bad News

In my 15 years of making a full-time living in the music world, one thing has become more and more clear to me.  It’s work.  The romantic image of the starving artist being so incredibly talented that one day he or she gets “discovered” and becomes rich and famous is a dangerous myth.  I say “dangerous” because the more you as an artist believe it, the less inclined you’ll be to do any work on your own behalf. The gritty reality is that if you don’t do the necessary (and daily) work promoting yourself and your music, it’s highly unlikely anything will ever happen.

The Good News

There has NEVER been a better time to spread the word about yourself and music. The internet, with its downloadable digital music files, social networking sites and countless other advances that we can’t even begin to imagine yet, has leveled the playing field in a way that will make the “work” you have to do infinitely more effective.

Gather Your Fans

The more you can identify and reach out to your fans the better off you’ll be.  Whether it’s your friends on MySpace or Facebook or the email addresses you’ve been collecting at gigs or online, it’s these people who you need to be able to reach effectively to spread the word about what you’re doing.  Treat your list of email addresses like the gold that it is.  It’s these people who will not only consider buying your music when it comes out, but more importantly, will also help spread (“viral” get it?) the word about you and your music.  Once you’ve got a network of fans that you can reach out to, you’ve dramatically increased your potential to spread the word about what you’re doing.

Be Creative

The fact that the playing field has been leveled and almost anyone can get their music out worldwide is both a blessing and a true challenge.  Instead of fans knowing that the local Tower Records is where they should go to find new music, the internet, with its infinite musical venues, has become the new (and overwhelming) place to find what’s new and great.  The more creative you are in your presentation, the more likely a fan of yours will be to forward a YouTube link with your video or any one of a thousand other ways you can create to present yourself and your music.  Again, the plan is that by putting something out there that’s unique enough to rise above the typical internet fare, it will take on a life of its own and appeal not only your current fans but also to new fans in ways you’ve never imagined.

Stay Current

The outlets for music and ways of marketing online change and advance almost hourly.  Taking time out of your day to be aware of the next MySpace, Facebook or Twitter will pay huge dividends going forward.  It’s not enough to find one way of reaching people and stubbornly stick to it.  If that were the case, bands would still be mailing postcards to let people know about their gigs.  Did I just date myself?

Give It Away

Don’t be afraid to give something to get something.  A free download of a song in exchange for an email address is the best deal out there these days.  Make it worth someone’s while to give you his or her email address and you’ll be amazed at what happens.  Let your music speak for itself.  If fans like their free download, there’s a much higher likelihood they’ll come back and buy the rest.  You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to do this either. Take a peek at a simple and effective example by going to www.charliedegenhart.com.

Make Sure Your Music Is Available

I can’t think of anything more depressing than the artist who comes up with an amazing vehicle to promote his or her music, watches it go “viral” and generate huge web traffic to their site only to have nothing readily available for sale.  Don’t expect most people to wait around or check back with iTunes every few days until your music is up.  Make sure that before you go about promoting your music, you’ve taken the necessary steps to insure that if and when people want to buy your music, they can do it easily.  Companies like Tunecore make this essential step both simple and cost effective.  Don’t wait around for people to start asking how they can get your music.  By then, it’s too late.  Do it first.

Trust Me, It’s Real

Be patient. Not every online marketing attempt you make will result in thousands of downloads and new fans.  However, every effort you make to get the word out about your music (even if it’s fifteen minutes a day) becomes part of the bigger picture of reaching new fans.  The more fans you have, the greater the potential for any one thing you do going viral and bringing in not only more fans but income.  All of a sudden your “friends” on MySpace and Facebook just became a whole lot friendlier.  Think of your work as a series of base hits that will get you ready for your shot at a home run.

Good luck!


SXSW (and Christmas) is coming soon! Are you ready?

“I wish there had been a music business 101 course I could have taken.”
–Kurt Cobain

Last night, The Musebox sponsored a night devoted to preparing artists for the SXSW music conference. For those who haven’t been, SXSW is a mega-event where thousands of bands are jockeying for exposure and connections to launch their careers. It’s a networking bonanza with panels, parties, and showcases featuring the industry’s best and brightest.

For a lot of bands, creating a strategy around SXSW is critical. Otherwise you’ll spend a lot of money and achieve minimal results.

The best advice to come out of the night was “get your shit together.” Echoed by all of the panelists as well as those of us in attendance from Nimbit, this is the single biggest step in getting noticed. If you have a website, keep it updated. Keep your MySpace and Facebook current, and make sure that you have a decent number of friends/followers.  Nimbit can help you do that.  In fact, we’d love to help you do that!

A piece of MySpace advice: If your comments sections repeatedly says “Thanks for the add,” odds are you’re just mass inviting people, and they’re not real fans. People notice things like that.

Nimbit hopes that all artists are prepared for SXSW.  We offer the tools to help keep you organized, efficient, and even better:  promotable!   If you have questions about prepping for SXSW, we’re here to help.

And for anyone heading down to Austin, we’ll meet you at Guero’s…

**Special thanks to John Hammond from The Musebox and Kevin Hoskinds from the Middle East for making last night happen.
