As part of our ongoing development programme we have announced new features this week.
We’re delighted to release our music player widgets ahead of schedule. Many of our competitors who have been around a lot longer than us still don’t offer this feature. Our artists have reached out to us and they’ve told us they want promotion and they don’t want to pay for it. We already pay our artists the best rates on the web but we agree that this isn’t enough. We’ll be rolling out our free viral marketing system in the next few months and the first stage of that is our widget integration.
Our widgets are automatically created for all our artists and they can even promote individual tracks or whole albums. The widgets are iframe based and can be used with Facebook, WordPress, Joomla and all html sites. All the widgets are free for everyone. If you have 100 tracks you’ll get 100 free widgets.
We have 2 colour themes ready now and we’ll be introducing more sizes and themes as our development work continues.
An example of the widgets in action is shown above. You can also view one as part of a web-page here
We’ve grown rapidly since launching in May and now host over 1500 tracks.
Our feedback shows that this is what bands and fans have been waiting for and the more features we add, the more sign-ups we are getting. People see us as fellow fans and appreciated we are trying to level the playing field for everyone.
There’s a lot of pent up anger surrounding the streaming services out there and we’ve provided a solution to an industry struggling to come to terms with its own evolution.
We also have our first social login facility for fans. They can collect badges and kudos just by listening to tracks and sharing links socially. Fans can log into the system via Facebook on the homepage.
Another feature coming in ahead of schedule is our label integration. Independent labels can now take advantage of Aurovine’s groundbreaking innovations and manage all their artists from one login. More details here.
Aurovine’s Start A Label Initiative
Another remarkable feature will come as a big boost to students, graduates and music fans looking to survive during our crippling recession. Aurovine have introduced an initiative for individuals or small companies to launch their own record label. All the setup costs are free and they can start earning straight away. More information on the system can be found here.
