Celebrating the 300th band to join!

Adva Mobile celebrating the 300th band to get their own free mobile fan club!In the world of entrepreneurship, every small reason for celebration counts. This one is a big reason for celebration: We've passed the 300 bands mark this weekend with Vertigo, Wonder Bars and others to join our service. We now have little over 600 fans, with an uneven distribution between bands that have hundreds of fans, and some that have less.

In the months since launching, we've been privileged with increasing attention from the bands who joined, specifically with suggestions for improvement, new features and picking on the bugs we've managed to produce along the way. For everyone who emailed us with comments, suggestions, and frustrated bug issues, a BIG THANK YOU!

One learning that's worth sharing, was that sometimes, things just have their natural course of action, specifically, timing. When we started, musicians barely signed up for the service and that was it. Since then, musicians have been adding videos and downloads to their home page, adding exclusive content for download, added gigs, blogs, have taken advantage of our Artist Data integrations, and more recently, have started SMS-blasting their fans with news and alerts.
It's all happening!

The next step for musicians, we hope, is to discover how simple and effective it is to sell tickets and merchandise to fans right on their mobile phone (perhaps at the show), using our PayPal integration.

But we're not settling down...We've been hard at work on new features that allow you to better promote your mobile fan club to your fans, sell tickets and merchandise and much more. We'll share it all in the coming days!

Until then...thank-you, from the Adva Mobile team!
