What with Facebook being the new be-all and end-all of social media, any band would be well equipped with a FanRx music page.
Not only does this awesome app give you everything you need (and more) to get yourself a sexy Facebook band page, it’s also absolutely free.
After you’ve signed into The Orchard Marketplace and installed FanRx, you’ll be asked to choose which video(s) you’d like to display on your Facebook Page. These videos come from Artist Builder, so make sure you’ve got a few uploaded beforehand. Click to continue and you’ll immediately be led to Facebook.
Be warned! You want to make sure you’ve signed into the correct account to avoid any mishaps.
Once you’ve allowed FanRx to access your information and you’re safely in Facebook, all the pages you admin will appear in a list. Select the page you want to work on and be prepared to witness the sleek FanRx dashboard. It’s fairly straightforward to use: just toggle the ON/OFF switch to select which modules you’d like to have appear on your page, and move them around with the arrows to adjust the order.
You can easily edit each module by clicking on the name of the section. For instance, if you open the Videos Module, you’ll notice that the video(s) you selected to upload from The Orchard’s database are there, and you can reorganize them as you see fit. Add a banner to appear at the top of your page (or anywhere else you like!), display upcoming tour dates and/or include recent wall posts you’ve published to your Page. With FanRx, options are not lacking.
Some cool tools you don’t want to overlook? The Live Streaming Event option makes it possible to display an embedded live video player to stream events. FanRx works with a few streaming providers to facilitate the process, and you can also elect to require a “Like” to view the stream, to increase fan engagement. Another cool feature is the Contest Module. With this, you can easily create a contest and post it to your page in just a few clicks.

Ok, we’re done. We know you’re dying to try it.
