MySpace is a piece of horrible with a silent H. Years of paying no respect to their user base has left My_______ as the retarded and annoying older brother of the social networks. They overdosed on ads and everyone left the place.
Bandcamp has better ideas and better execution. Bandcamp IS BETTER. Now as MySpace tries to reinvent itself as a place that is more welcoming to musicians they’ve joined with RevebNation to do many things that Bandcamp does. I mean, the widgets even look the same.
..Recently announced an integration with marketing and promotion platform ReverbNation that will give artists a handy collection of tools that they can use to track analytics (both on MySpace and on other social media sites) and organize and contact their fans.
The new contact tools are an extension of Reverb’s Fan Relationship Management application, FanReach.
FanReach will allow bands to port all their contacts into the MySpace environment, from which they can reach out to fans from a consolidated dashboard.
In a sense, FanReach is an e-mailing marketing service — think MailChip — that lets bands zero in on certain demographics by sorting their fans by age, location, etc. and create a more targeted mailing campaign. They can also check open rates, campaign success, etc. – Mashable
