BandPage is pleased to welcome Ning.com to our growing family of Content Syndication Partners. Used by artists like Linkin Park and Plain White T’s, Ning.com is a community-based platform that makes it easy for musicians to launch their very own social network site in the matter of minutes.
BandPage teamed up with Ning with a single goal in mind: to deliver a number of robust community site features to those musicians that are ready to go beyond Facebook, a static website or blog and let their biggest fans take center stage. Unlike other social platforms, Ning lets bands and fans connect, converse, and create content together through tools such as band- or fan-led blogs, forums, photo sections, and more. Plus, Ning gives musicians complete ownership and control of their branded online communities where they can nurture, cultivate, and empower their loyal followers.
Our new BandPage/Ning integration makes it easy for you to pull all of your different social networks and properties together under one roof where fans can follow your various social feeds, stay up to date with your latest blog content as well as participate in fan forums with other fans. And instead of building your site from scratch, any musicians with a BandPage Account can automatically shift and syncing their BandPage content with their Ning site using our “BandPage Connect” technology. Connecting your BandPage account automatically syncs all of your BandPage content, including your music, tour dates, photos, videos and About info to your Ning-powered site. You can then choose to alter the design of your site by uploading your own header and background images and making the necessary adjustments to the font and color. It’s that simple.
For those of you who want to engage with their fans on a deeper level, you can take advantage of the power and flexibility of Ning 3.0 to add features and custom pages on the fly: fan photo section, individual band member blogs, a private street team forum, contests, and more. Dada Life’s Ning-powered site, Dada Land, allows Citizens (fans) to climb the member ranks and become Dad Land Ambassadors by completing a certain number of missions. The possibilities are endless.
Our very own Chris Wiltsee, Sr. Director of Business Development, had this to say about our unique partnership, “bands want feature-rich flexible social networks and are eager to integrate their unique content into those networks. Ning is clearly striving to meet this need and BandPage is pleased to welcome Ning into its growing base of content partners.”
