Nimbit Inc the industry’s premier direct-to-fan platform for today’s music business, releases the free Instant Band Site plug-in for WordPress. With Instant BandSite, it’s easier than ever for artists to create and maintain a professional web presence that provides the perfect showcase and storefronts to take their music and careers direct-to-fan.

A Custom Website with the Content Demanded by Music Fans
A well designed website is a critical component for the success of any professional artist. Websites generated by Instant Band Site combine together the best elements of the Nimbit direct-to-fan solution and give fans more ways to easily support the artist.

“Today it’s essential to have your own web presence,” said Dave Kusek, CEO of Berkleemusic.com and co-author of The Future of Music. “Nimbit has created an incredibly simple, yet powerful way for bands to create and publish a custom web site, complete with an integrated storefront, fan capture, and connections to social media, all driven from the Nimbit dash…very slick.”

A custom website with artist branding
Full storefront to sell music (digital & CD), merchandise, & e-tickets
Artist bio, blog, news, and gig calendar
Email List sign up and promo code redemption
An online music player
Social network connection with Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Painless and Affordable Website Creation
With Nimbit Instant Band Site, artists can save hours of frustrating web programming or the thousands of dollars charged by web designers to create a comparable site.

“I had been planning on investing money in a new web design when I decided to give Instant Band Site a try,” said singer/songwriter Todd Thibaud “I was amazed at how quickly I was able to get great results. Now I can do web updates without relying on anyone else…how liberating.”

Setting up a website with Instant Band Site is incredibly easy:
1. Install the Instant Band Site plug-in in WordPress
2. Provide a Nimbit user name and password
3. Select website features to post
4. Choose one of Nimbit’s free WordPress templates or from thousands of others
5. Hit publish and the new website is instantly generated

Best of all, because Instant Band Site is fed by the artist’s Nimbit account, maintenance and web updates are a breeze. Whenever artists update their information in the Nimbit dash (add a new gig or product for sale, change product pricing, start a promotion, etc.), the website automatically updates…and their Nimbit storefronts on other sites like Facebook or MySpace are also kept in perfect sync.

“All artists need an online home base that’s under their full control,” commented Ariel Hyatt, of Ariel Publicity. “Instant Band Site is an easy, affordable and miraculous solution! Kudos to Nimbit…I’ll be adding this to my essentials list.”
