BandPage Reaches Beyond Facebook with BandPage Connect
BandPage is scheduled on Tuesday to announce its growth strategy beyond Facebook, where half-a-million musicians currently use BandPage's software tools to manage their profiles on the social media network.
The San Francisco start-up is launching BandPage Connect, a tool that lets artists update their photos, videos, songs, tour dates and other information on BandPage, which the automatically makes the changes to the artists' multiple profiles across the web. That means building connections between BandPage and other places on the web where artists have profiles.
"We think of it as a live wire between the band and all of their mobile and Web services," BandPage chief executive J Sider says. "Instead of having to re-upload all their images, videos or bios for each site or service, they can do it once on BandPage and know that their information is automatically updated everywhere."
