NEW YORK (Hypebot) – ASCAP will now include Nimbit’s direct-to-fan sales & catalog management tools as part of the basic membership package for more than 320,000 ASCAP songwriters and composers. Nimbit will also offer premium packages in connection with ASCAP's member benefits.
In 2003 ASCAP launched Webtools as an umbrella program…
of partner services to help music creators get online. Nimbit's contributions were automated websites and email promotion. Today’s deal reflects the evolution of that relationship with Nimbit delivering a platform for catalog administration, marketing, distribution, and direct-to-fan sales.
"ASCAP is continuing to place an emphasis on career advancement through a variety of initiatives, and our work with Nimbit really goes a long way to providing our members with the new tools to succeed in this ever-changing music environment," says ASCAP Senior Vice President, Marketing Lauren Iossa. "Nimbit's team and technology is fantastic and they completely understand the landscape of the industry, which is key.”
Nimbit CEO, Patrick Faucher, echoed the sentiment. “We’re very proud of our ongoing partnership with ASCAP. They have the best interest of the writer and artist in mind in everything they do and so do we, which is why this has worked out so well.”
