Recorded 23 March 2010
This episode of With A Voice Like This is about the changes ReverbNation has made in the past couple of months.
News You Can Use
I take a look at the four changes/new additions to ReverbNation since 29 January 2010:
- The complete redesign of the website
- The launch of the company blog
- The new digital distribution packages announced 22 March 2010
- The Reverb Store announced 24 February 2010 for print on demand merch with partner Audiolife
I also take the time dot a little compare and contrast with a couple of services I’ve used to this point and see how ReverbNation‘s services stack up against them.
- I compare the digital distro packages with my experiences with both SellMusicDirect.com (A print on demand site no longer in existence) and CDBaby.com and take a look at their offerings, pricing structures and payment to artists [Note: I made an assumption about ReverbNation‘s package pricing, simply because turnaround time was too short before the live show to get a clarification when I found the source of my confusion, but I think I got it right].
- I then compare both CDBaby and mainly Zazzle.com to the new Reverb Store and again look at their offerings and pricing structure
