FaceTracks is an opportunity to embed a music store right inside your Facebook Fan page. All that you need to provide us with is some basic images, your MP3 files and a brief bio. We take it from there.
Many independent Musicians will use a large distributor like iTunes to sell their music online. The upside of that is that iTunes has a massive network and huge reach. The unfortunate side is that large distributors will charge a large commission meaning that the Artist is paying dearly for that exposure.
FaceTracks takes advantage of the sheer size of Facebook as well as the incredible sharing, networking, and marketing benefits built right into the world’s largest website. The real beauty of Facebook is that it is free (everybody’s favorite price) and they actually encourage people to do business inside of Facebook.
Think of your FaceTracks music store as a store front for your business. Just like a real store, one of the most important aspects for your music store is location, location, location. Think of Facebook as the mall where you may decide to locate your store. If you really need to think about whether you want to be in that “mall” consider the following:
- This “mall” has over 750 Million people who use it
- 50% of them visit the “mall” every day
- The average time a person spends in the mall is 30 minutes
- The average mall user has 130 friends who can see what that user is doing in the mall
- Rental space in the “mall” is free
- In case you missed it, FACEBOOK IS FREE!!!! *source
One of the great features of the FaceTracks platform is the ability to build and manage your mailing lists. Built right into FaceTracks is a feature that can capture the names and email adresses of anybody who signs up through the page and/or buys one of your tracks. If you have been collecting names and email adresses from your fans and keeping your own list, those people can be imported into the system as well. When you have a new song to release, a show to announce, or any type of news to share with your fans, it can all be shared with a stylish Newsletter sent to them directly from your FaceTracks page. If you really want to take your “list building” to the next level, consider letting us set you up with a “squeeze page” where you can grow your list very quickly by giving something away. You can read more about squeeze pages,building, maintaining, and communication to your list on this page.
