Digital distributor TuneCore has announced the launch of TuneCore Social Pro, a set of premium tools that allows artists to manage both their social media activity and distribution sales in one place. "Pro" is a paid version of TuneCore Social, a desktop-only site released last October, and includes a roster of features including comprehensive analytics, a monthly webinar and an all-in-one mobile app that lets artists post on their socials.

TuneCore acquired the social media startup JustGo last year and rebranded it TuneCore Social. The tool integrates with all major social networks including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, YouTube and Mixcloud.

"Social media management can be a full-time job, and we want to make sure TuneCore members are focused on their art," said Scott Ackerman, CEO of TuneCore. "We know that a successful online social media presence is essential to our artists’ success, so we prioritized the development of this tool and will continue adapting our resources to meet the demands of the evolving music industry and social media landscape."

TuneCore Social Pro and the new mobile app will be available to both distribution customers (artists/labels), as well as any user in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia markets who simply has a TuneCore account. It costs $7.99 per month, or $85.99 with an annual subscription.
