UPDATE: iLike Provides Details Of Expanded Cross-Platform Marketing Tools

BOSTON (Hypebot) — Yesterday music-based social networker iLike made marketing music via a multitude of social network and web sites a lot easier with new services that enable single source updating.

  • "pre-created" pages for 160,000+ artists, so that the artist doesn't have to go through the irritating hassle of uploading all their content again to create yet another new band profile

  • opened a "Universal Artist Dashboard" so and artist can control their presence across many channels from single place – i.e post a new concert and reach fans across iLike.com, Facebook, iTunes/WMP desktops and soon thanks to Google's OpenSocial platform on Bebo, orkut, MySpace, Friendster and scores of other sites

  • providing a host of new apps just for Facebook Pages, namely Songs, Concerts, iCast

    Late yesterday, we asked iLike spokesperson Emily Glassman for more details:

    Hypebot: When do you expect to add MySpace and other OpenSocial sites?

    Glassman: Coming soon. We will make individual press announcements in the future, providing launch dates and more details.

    Hypebot: What is the cost of The Dashboard to artists and labels?

    Glassman: These services with remain free to artists and labels.

    Glassman: "We’ve (also) started an autoupdate for all of our iTunes/Windows Media Player Sidebar users which will add an “Artists” tab to the Sidebar. This new functionality will display a users music newsfeed inside of their Sidebar, providing frequent bulletins about a user’s favorite artists…It’s a simple and convenient way to find out if an artist you like has added new tour dates, (etc)…"
