Update On Emailing All Fans At Once

The new mass e.mail feature in your fans tab has been updated and is live. Again, we hope this makes your Jango Airplay experience that much better as we're here every day trying to do just that.

On that note, it's time to let your fans know about your new album, upcoming show/tour, or simply a free download for joining your mailing list.

More updates soon,

The Juggler

91days said...

It's working for me. It doesn't show as sent but I received the e-mail in my personal inbox and have had a pretty good response from fans.

The Juggler here...

yep it's working, and 91days above is right, it shows up in your inbox as a message to you to let you know that your message has been sent. Will be in your sent mail soon too.

also, sign up to Jango.com as a listener and become a fan of yourself...always a good way to check the flow.

I really appreciate that tool Jango.
Now I have a serious matter which I have email to you guys.
Regarding the age limits on Jango Radio-

Please be advise I am concern that a 6 year old has an account from overseas on your site??
Requesting you investigate that please

Terry said...

so what is the difference between this new featrue and the "bulletin" feature?

Tarrab Music said...

Sent one out earlier today and received an overwhelming, and very positive, response. However, one chap asked not to receive any more "promotional" emails from me in future. But of course there is no way I can exclude him from the distribution list or delete him as a fan (nor is there any way he can delete himself as far as I know). This may an issue Jango will want to consider.

Jango Airplay said...

Hi Terry,

Bulletins leave a message on the 'User Home' page in their Bulletin section. Mass e.mails go into their Inbox'

Ooops June was the month posted...should have been Anonymous what is wrong with a 6 year old listening to music? They are probably more savvy on the computer than most of the artists on here!!

We just got on board and it looks like we will be here for quite awhile. This is the best operation I have seen in a long time.

Hi Jangobaby,

Just showing some luv for taking my, and other user's comments and suggestions to heart and attempting to improve a crucial element of our Jango experience.

I have yet to try the messaging function, but I will shortly. And I will chronicle my results here, you know I will!

Thanks for being a smart company - if this works my wallet as well as my heart will be opening wider to you real soon.

Response to comment:

There is not a problem with a 6 year old with listening to music, however I don't want no parent saying that I am communicating with their child in sorts of way when I am not... The things people will do for money, attention or just to be doing it- It's called taking precautions!!!!! I am Sure Jango doesn't want to be accused of anything (or have a lawsuit brought against them) and I sure don't want to anything to head my way either. I am not sure if the person was joking or not but I can see by their writings in my inbox that they wrote like a child. Which is a concern, since a 6 year old is listening to songs that is clearly made for young adults to grown people. That is the problem...

The mass messaging feature is working!!! As a "listener" I have already deleted, errr I mean received several in my INBOX.

Marilyn Carino said...

I am curious -- can Jango artists please post a brief report of their experience with mass emailing? Have you gotten many responses? Have you had any "please remove" requests or anything like that?

Let's fine tune this thing..

Best - Marilyn

Anonymous said...

nearly 2000 emails sent 48 hours ago and not a single response. Either Jango has some bugs to work out or the notification system is still too subtle.

Anonymous said...

Or maybe nobody is interested in responding to you!!

Average Joe said...

I have had a few responses, maybe 1%. A few actually listened to the song referenced and made positive comments or sent a positive email.

One guy seriously pissed that his music gets interupted in general by "emerging musicians. However in looking up and reading his profile he would appear to be an "asshole" in general.

It is true that the plays go fast but that is why you can change the button or just allocate off and on through the day. There is times with the the first play I get a fan. 4 fans for 30 plays at times.I do this for like an hour or less, allocating and watching the results as I change my plays to my different songs. I leave them for less than a minute and then to the next song so all the plays don't go fast just on one. A lot of the times I don't even have allocated plays and I get to hear my songs on my station two or three times in 30 minutes even more than some top artists, there is times when a song of mine will come out and then another one after 4 or 5 songs, it has happened that way and this are songs that I don't even have plays on or click love it play this song a lot. Jango does play your music. I get fans daily with comments using only 200 plays or less. At times when I run out of plays even with 50 plays I've gotten up to 5 or more fans. You can control your plays. If you leave them all with the fastest pace you will run out but if you do it yourself those 4000 plays can last you 2 weeks or more and bring you up to 10 or more fans a day. The other day I had 20 fans in one day with not that many plays about 200 controlled plays through out the day. It is not up to jango how many fans you get. People do skip songs they don't want to hear. Nobody is stealing money. You do have to pay for promotion and I think it is a very affordable option here. Well, not if you're spending $ 100 dollars in an hour. Those hundred dollars can last good with daily fans and great comments. I am very pleased and I know for a fact my music "is" being played. Surprisingly as it was to me that they would play my songs up to three times in half hour songs without allocated plays even. We cannot make listeners listen to our music or leave comments, click make or break. They have a mind of their own. All jango does is spread our music, plus if someone wants to hear you they don't have to wait for jango to play our music. They can just go to our page and listen to all the music they want. I am very surprised to hear that someone would stay monitoring a station all day and not hear anything. Maybe you should try checking in other stations where your music is being targeted. As I said. I go to listen to good music, not my own and there it is my songs come out. I don't want to hear my own songs especially in the same hour at times it makes me want to skip myself, it makes happy though to know that. very thankful. This happens weekly. I am not writing this to show off, that is not my style. I am doing it because it is the truth, my own experience...I know my music is being played . I have also gotten great response on emails these past days except from a man that asked not to send promotional emails. I respect that... Jango does work, it works for me and nooooooo they are not stealing from me. I willingly pay for my music to be heard but I really don't have to, they play it anyways and I have proof of that. I am deeply thankful. I wish all artists here the best with their music creations... Peace...

Some of the comments above are harsh and I would want to distance myself from them, but I must say that this new feature is a terrible idea and Jango has made a big mistake giving in to pressure from shortsighted people who can't wait to spam every unfortunate soul who likes their music. It is all downhill from here. As a listener, I have already stopped becoming a fan of anyone on Jango and started ignoring my inbox. Thousands are doing the same, no doubt... I would be interested to hear if any artists out there have noticed a downturn in their "likes" and "fans" in the last couple of weeks. I have.

how can i delete someone from my email list? I've had a couple of requests

Christian A. said...

Jango is without-a-doubt a scam. Just do a quick search online, you'll find posts all over the internet.

They are using a technology like ALICE or Jabberwocky to leave comments on your music and profile. It's a common practice when building a new social networking site, forum, or other social-driven site, but in Jango's case the majority of their "fans" are bots, and the more you pay the more they'll leave generic, positive comments on your profile.

It's a classic case of "Fake It Till You Make It". Which is also probably why it takes a couple weeks to hear back from them, the website is poorly made and manually updated every couple weeks, and most of the userbase is fake.

Yes,...But I've actually gotten really 'negative' comments on jango about my band ,..and not only that, ...I have ( and quite often too ) received negative hateful emails within Jango ( and sometimes they're almost threatening ),...I guess my music must really suck ,..to some people atleast,.. the trouble is Last.Fm and Pandora are very confusing and clumsy for bands ,...it's just easier to go put all yer shit on jango
