Now You Can Update Your Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud profile photos from within BandPage
Today we at BandPage are excited to announce that you can now update your Twitter, SoundCloud, and Facebook profile pictures from within BandPage. Just weeks after we launched BandPage Connect with partners WordPress, Guitar Center, Conduit Mobile, Midem Music Festival and more, we’ve seen incredible results from our musicians and partner services alike.
Over 100,000 Extensions have been created by musicians around the world since we released the functionality in July 2012, which shows just how impactful and necessary this technology is for the music industry. “Keeping all our photos, videos and new tour dates updated on the services we’re using online is tiring,” said Nonafaye Williams, Digital Marketing Manager for Pierce The Veil. “BandPage makes it easy – for example, we’re using Conduit Mobile for our mobile app and since we were able to connect our BandPage profile to their service we don’t need to worry about updating the content there manually anymore. It’s an incredible tool that every music and social outlet should utilize.”
Our BandPage Connect launch partners have also been seeing uplifts in traffic stemming from the implementation, from local services like Local Music Vibe which has seen a 6x increase in worldwide artist signups and a dramatically increased conversion rate, to large platforms like WordPress. WordPress alone saw over one million fan interactions with BandPage Extensions installed across musician WordPress sites and blogs. Examples of bands using WordPress are M83 and Taking Back Sunday.
“Since the launch of BandPage Connect three weeks ago, we’ve seen a tremendous lift in engagement to musician sites on WordPress.com,” said Raanan Bar-Cohen, VP of Media Services. “Fans have interacted with over a million BandPage Extensions across WordPress.com sites where musicians are using BandPage Connect. This really strengthens WordPress.com as a valuable platform for musicians — a place for bands to connect with fans and keep them up-to-date with their most current work.”
The addition of Twitter, SoundCloud and Facebook connectivity builds upon our list of services that you as a musician can connect your profile to. You can manage the way you’re represented across third party sites, as well as your own website or blog through BandPage. To connect your BandPage to Twitter, SoundCloud and Facebook, you can log in and go to the Connect Center tab within your Editor view to do so.
What you can control from BandPage:
- SoundCloud: profile photo, About section
- Twitter: profile photo, website, city
- Facebook: profile photo, website
