Sonicbids key product is the Electronic Press Kit (EPK). Created as an alternative to bulky and expensive hard copy press kits, the Sonicbids EPK will let Disc Makers customers create their own easy-to-use, web-based graphic interface that contains all of their basic information, music clips, photos, and tour dates. The EPK can either be e-mailed to a club, contest, company, or event with a click of the mouse, or submitted directly to online promoter ?drop boxes. EPKs mean no more late night trips to the local copy shop and any more postage, express mail, FedEx, or UPS. EPKs save time and money.
?With this partnership, we are bringing together two of the leading service providers for independent musicians, explains Panos Panay, CEO and Founder of Sonicbids. ?There is no better way to promote discs made by Disc Makers artists than with a Sonicbids EPK. Their customers are serious musicians who will be a welcome addition to our growing online community of artists.
