Vampr Announces New Pro Service with Distribution
Upgrades to a 360º Self-Service Platform for Artists
NASHVILLE, TN (August 21, 2020) – The world’s number one music collaboration app Vampr - with over 600,000 users - has launched Vampr Pro, adding digital music distribution to their arsenal. Vampr Pro users will be able to service their music to Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and all leading digital service providers, while keeping 100% of their royalties. In conjunction with the recently released Vampr Publishing, Vampr Pro signals the transformation of a social network, often referred to as the “LinkedIn for Musicians,” into a 360º self-service platform empowering artists, in a first of its kind offering.
Vampr Pro will be available for a monthly cost of $4.99 and provides musicians a bundle of essential new tools. In addition to Distribution, Vampr Pro will offer the following new features:
- Make your profile matter with up to 3x more content
- Unlimited rewinds – undo your swipes
- Search the world and collaborate remotely
- More chances to connect per day
- Stand out from the crowd with the Pro badge
- Hide your profile and search in stealth mode until you are ready to connect
All of this housed in a multi award-winning platform helping creatives to find people to collaborate with, create new music, and monetize their work. The platform also offers reduced rates for a 6-month term ($23.94, $3.99/month) or 12-month term ($35.88, $2.99/month).
The Vampr team are committed to adding new features to the Vampr Pro suite every month through to the end of the year, at the same price point. In addition to the mobile app, Vampr Pro will be available through a brand new desktop experience.
“Vampr distro will be bundled with our premium version Vampr Pro,” says co-founder Josh Simons. “The premium version of Vampr with its additional tools ultimately delivers more career opportunities for the user with a better chance of experiencing that all-important exposure to a global community. For the price of a coffee you can really stand out from the crowd, while keeping 100% of your royalties from streaming platforms.”
A company created by musicians, for musicians, Vampr seeks to break down barriers for creatives, to help elevate their professional life, faster and more efficiently. While the app will always remain free, Vampr Pro will grant users more access and features than ever before.
