Add Music to Your Facebook Band Page with MyBand


There are a number of great Facebook apps that enable bands to add a dedicated music tab to their band Facebook Pages.  Some of the best include ReverbNation’s MyBand Facebook app, RootMusic’s BandPage Facebook app, iLike’s (or now MySpace’s) iLike Facebook app, and Nimbit’s Facebook app.

I’ve been using MyBand for GarageSpin’s Facebook Page for some time.  Many of the newer ones, such as BandPage, however, looked sleeker and ran better, to the point where I loosely considered switching.  Until recently — ReverbNation launched a series of upgrades which are quite slick.

Check out the full MyBand App feature details on ReverbNation’s blog.  Or, skim the summary below, which I’m pasting from Jed’s announcement email:

1.  More attractive layout and design (still with unlimited songs, videos, and photos)
2.  Free custom header banner (Artists upload banner and link)
3.  Fan-exclusive downloads (Artists can exchange a free download for the fan’s email address inside of facebook, integrated with our FanReach product)
4.  Tour map, show schedule with details, ticket links, sharing
5.  Enhanced sharing mechanisms.  Fans can share a song, show, video, photos, etc with friends on facebook.  All facebook sharing uses our awesome sharing widget: http://tinyurl.com/28bbu3y
6.  Links to retailers like iTunes and Amazon
7.  Integrated Direct to Fan store (Reverb Store)
8.  Integrated Facebook comments
9.  Aggregated fan count stats (pulling in MySpace, Facebook, ReverbNation, Mailing list)
10.  Song lyrics


Pretty sweet.  I haven’t taken advantage of the new features yet, so don’t bother looking to me as a shining example…yet…

this is a really good idea. facebook is so hard to promote music on!

i also would like to show you my recording studio. we record a lot of independent music and could use all the help we can get. thanks so much for the blog!

It's worth it. You might as well add value to your presence in multiple locations simultaneously, with ReverbNation's app let's you do with it's stats tracking and ranking. The other apps are also worth considering, though; I just happen to be intimately familiar with RN's.

Ok Alex, are you just generating links for SEO purposes?

Your style is very unique in comparison to other people I’ve read stuff from.
