Just like all other aspects of the entertainment industry, the quest for a large and loyal fan base is the holy grail for the music industry. Today PLANETwebfoot, a leader in the social networking software arena, launches a social networking platform specific to the music industry: STAGE9 Software.
“Over the past couple of years we recognized the high demand in the marketplace for a completely customizable online solution. By providing a musician or a band with their own interactive online community, the end result will be a more expanded, solidified, and loyal fan base. This in turn leads to higher ticket, album and merchandise revenue,” explained Gus Mumby, CEO of PLANETwebfoot. “STAGE9 Software allows users real-time access to their favorite musical artists in an exciting and fun online experience.”
To showcase the potential of STAGE9 Software, PLANETwebfoot has partnered with one of Universal Motown Music’s newest stars on the rise: After Midnight Project. This LA based band is poised to set the charts on fire and needed a place for their ever increasing fan base to connect with them online and now they have it in the form of AMPARMY.com. When asked why fan interaction is so important to them, After Midnight Project’s Lead Singer Jason Evigan had this to say: “As an artist and front man to a rockband, I have to stay close and interactive with my fans. This is the first site that completely makes this possible on every single level. I hang out for hours on there a day!” From their bass player Spencer Bastian: “Interacting with our fans is not only important but also one of the most rewarding aspects of being in a band. It's important because we want them to feel like they're a part of our team. They need to know how integral a part of a band's success and progress they are and we make sure to let them know.”
Upon joining the ranks of the AMP Army, users of the site are treated to a truly unique online experience with features such as user generated reviews and feedback, promotional modules, real-time venue information, discography section, media galleries and much more. Members of the After Midnight Project network get to feel like they have crossed over from being just another fan to being a part of the band. Alternately, the band is able to reach out to their followers on a whole new level. They can generate location specific text blasts for those intimate and interactive gigs, post behind the scenes blogs, update tour dates and keep their fans in the loop from one, easy to navigate online platform.
