Make The Most of Your Promo Module

Photobucket
Your custom Promo Module is the doorway through which Jango listeners interact with you as an artist. Listeners can rate you up or down, 'Like' you on Facebook, check out your other social networks, find a store to buy your music, leave their email address and more. To make the most out your airplay promotion, make sure your Promo Module is up to date.

When you go to your 'Band Info' tab in your artist dashboard now you will see your live overlay and be able to preview your updates right there in the tab. Make sure to update all links and use your best photo as the 'Default Pic' since that is the one presented. Also, you have to use the URL to an actual 'Facebook Page' rather than a personal profile URL because clicking "like" in the overlay creates a like for the actual Facebook band page (your page).

We hope this update helps you connect even more with new fans.
