									Iowa-Based Media Group Unleashes Bombplates.com, A New Web Service Allowing Bands To Power Social Networking Directly From Official Website
Dubque's Blackwood Media Group provides bands with a hassle-free and customizable way to update multiple social networking accounts without ever leaving their own web page.
(PRWEB) January 9, 2010 -- Widely praised for their creative and unique approach to web-based marketing solutions, Blackwood Media Group has once again put to good use their years of work alongside musicians and artists to provide a brand new web service intended specifically for artists. Called Bombplates.com, the service offers ready-made, customizable web styles for the musician who hopes to reach a wider audience in the most fashionable, timely, authentic way possible. Bombplates re-captures the importance of the band's official website by enabling the artist to communicate with their fans via one central hub: the website itself. No longer must the artist sign in and out of various Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace accounts. With a single click, each social networking account is updated. No need to ever navigate away from the website itself. Want to tell fans about a new round of tour dates or the release date of that forthcoming e.p.? Simply type in the new tour stop or date and the information is automagically posted on Twitter and Facebook and MySpace, and vice-versa. Anything posted on Twitter is immediately posted on the website too. Thus by enabling bands to re-focus their marketing and merchandise sales efforts on their official websites, Bombplates ends the confusing fragmentation so inherent across the web and clarifies where information is coming. It allows the band website to do the job it was meant to do in the first place. But there's more: Bombplates can serve as a brand new website or can be integrated into a pre-existing site.

In the case of the former, the band simply chooses a website "style" from a wide variety of available and cutting edge (and inexpensive) options. Included in each style is a powerful music player that allows fans to preview and enjoy the band's music from the website; and a built-in, customizable merchandise store that connects easily with Pay Pal and allows the artist to keep 100% of their in-store proceeds. No longer must the artist integrate an expensive and confusing third party store or application that steals part of the proceeds. But Bombplates is also useful for the musician who already has a stylish website. Don't need a new store or media player? No problem! Pre-existing designs can be integrated into the Bombplates system. Bombplates.com also provides in-house custom design services that can tailor to the look and branding of any band. For artists who like to get personal with their fans, each style includes a fully featured blog where artists can post lyrics, share anecdotes from a tour, or discuss how a song came into existence. But best of all, Bombplate's is easy to use. Each style is built on an intuitive content management system (CMS)

that allows the artist to update most of their site content themselves, including adding and removing video, photos, and bio information. And if a band prefers to send out something a little bit more substantial than a forty character tweet or a facebook status update they can use Sndit.com, Blackwood's integrated, inexpensive e-campaign service, and easily send out a newsletter style e-mail to any or all of their dedicated fans. During their years of working with artists, whether in the studio or over the web, the Blackwood guys began to recognize the unique place in which most independent musicians find themselves. It's tough to spread the word. It's important to be seen and to make a good first impression. But too often there just isn't enough money to keep up with the label-backed bands who can pay someone to update their social networking sites, who can purchase the hippest of the hip websites, who can pay someone else to promote them. For most independent artists, these kind of things are impossible. That's where bombplates comes in. This is band marketing done on the artist's time, the artist's way. Hassle-free. Stress-free. Third party free. To communicate with Blackwood Media Group click here.
