Direct-to-fan platform Nimbit has added a new do-it-yourself website creation feature for artists using its services, called Instant Band Site. It’s a free plug-in for the WordPress blogging platform that contains the following:
· A custom website with artist branding
· Full storefront to sell music (digital & CD), merchandise, & e-tickets
· Artist bio, blog, news, and gig calendar
· E-mail list sign up and promo code redemption
· An online music player
· Social network connection with Facebook, Twitter, etc.
· Integration with photo galleries and other WordPress add-ons
Nimbit also provides a number of free design templates artists can choose from, in addition to the thousands offered through WordPress. The whole thing is run through the Nimbit system, so whenever artists update information in their Nimbit profile—such as new tour dates or new products for sale—the WordPress site is updated automatically.
