As most of our regular visitors have seen, we have made a bunch of updates to the site since launching on the new platform in October 2011. I would like to take this opportunity to outline some of the new features, so that we can ensure that all of you are getting the most out of your Indie on the Move experience...
3/8 - We launched a nationwide Radio Directory. Listings are broken down by state with a couple of national and international stations in there too. Not only do we provide city, station name, format (when applicable), and contact link, but we also include instruction links for submitting to the likes of Pandora, SiriusXM, Slacker, Spotify, and more.
This same week we reached 4500 venues with California, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas all having over 300 each (California has almost 450!).
3/1 - We launched the Press Directory, again broken down by state. Be your own publicist and exploit this section of the site to promote shows, tours, new releases, and more.
We also added "Add to Calendar" links to all user show listings that allow fans to easily add your tour dates to their personal calendars (google, yahoo, outlook, & iCal). Lastly, a new preference has been added to user accounts enabling us to inform you when you have a show coming up at a venue that has the ability to live stream.
2/2 - The NEW live streaming module is completed. Here we list all the venues on the site that live stream their shows and allow bands & fans to watch the shows via the embedded channel. All channels are additionally connected to each IOTM listing, so you can easily promote your upcoming live streams to fans that are unable to attend those particular shows.
1/12 - We created a testimonials forum for members to post and chat about their IOTM experiences. Feel free to get involved in the conversation.
12/15/11 - IOTM forums go live enabling our community to openly discuss topics that interest them, ask questions, and share stories about all things music.
12/8/11 - We launched the classifieds section and hit 4000 venues!
10/26/11 - The NEW IOTM arrives on a new platform with more features including google maps, show/band availabilities, media, calendars, and more.
