What We Do
We provide innovative marketing solutions to help musicians compete, cooperate and differentiate in an increasingly noisy online environment. Unlike typical "closed" communities, artists use ReverbNation as their home base for approaching marketing and promotion across the Internet as a whole — through social networks, blogs and/or the artist's homepage. Tools like Promote It, our groundbreaking Facebook ad campaign solution, FanReach email manager and our easy-to-use widgets, give artists the power to spread their music and information virtually anywhere. Real-time stats provide a 360-degree view of how that reach is expanding, who’s listening and which fans are advocating for the artist, passing music on to their friends and posting to their pages.

Fans come to ReverbNation to discover new music, find out more about favorite artists, search for a show and grab tools they can use to promote their favorites across the web. Our search and player tools make it easy to queue up music, kick back, then browse the site without= interrupting the listening experience. One click stores tracks to a profile page while our powerful search function finds fresh tracks. Plus, local show information is just one click away. Finally true fans, can support the artists they love by grabbing their song widgets and placing them all over the web. For more information on what ReverbNation can do for fans, click here.
