ReverbNation Launches “Sponsored Songs” To Give Away Free Music Downloads From 1,000 Artists July 10, 2009

ReverbNation, the leading marketing platform for musicians, announced the launch of ‘Sponsored Songs,’ a new online music distribution program that will give music fans access to unlimited free song downloads from 1,000 artists.

Through this innovative pilot program, a passive advertisement is embedded alongside the album cover art that is seen by music fans when they play the song on their computer, portable device or phone.

The advertising in Sponsored Songs travels with the fans wherever they enjoy their music giving the advertiser frequent and regular brand exposure, and the fan free music they can’t find anywhere else

Today, the company announced that Windows is the first advertiser to participate in this program.

Sponsored Songs will be available for free June 24 – September 24, 2009 on http://www.MySpace.com/Windows, and will feature music from independent and mainstream Artists in the rock, alternative, hip hop, latin, and electronica genres.

Music fans will be able to browse, sample, and discover music from established and emerging Artists that isn’t available anywhere else on the web for free. That’s music to everyone’s ears.

Brand gets reach and frequency with target audience “Ad-supported music models have historically been unable to deliver the value required by advertisers because they focus on the point of acquisition alone – one moment with one music fan,” explains Jed Carlson, chief operating officer of ReverbNation.

“Sponsored Songs aligns the interests of artists, fans, and major brands, creating a win-win-win situation where free music is a shared goal that benefits all parties.”

Artists earn money, stay in control, and receive free promotion

Sponsored Songs is an opt-in program for select Artists that use ReverbNation.com as their online marketing platform.

Artists are paid for each qualified download, and are shown the exact advertisement for their approval prior to the campaign launch.

“We treat Artists like we would want to be treated,” says Lou Plaia, vice president of artist relations at ReverbNation.com. “We give them the information to determine if Sponsored Songs is a good fit for them. If it is, we equip them with turnkey tools to promote the song to their fans.”

According to the latest breaking unemployment figures, another 467,000 people joined the ranks of the unemployed in June. This brings the unemployment figures to the highest they have been in 26 years. Workers also saw weekly wages fall, suggesting that Americans have little appetite for spending.

ReverbNation recently conducted a survey of artists in an attempt to learn how the downturn was affecting their everyday lives across a variety of factors. The general perception is that this downturn in the economy has affected them in a negative way with many respondents citing that they are touring less, receiving less for the gigs that they are playing, they are being asked to split a larger percentage of the proceeds of their merchandise tables with venue owners,

Here is the results of that survey as it appeared on Hypebot:
