Ripple9: Free Service to Deliver Gig/Concert Info via SMS.

There is a new startup service out there called Ripple9. Ripple9 is a free service that allows artists and bands to deliver information to people such as their concert announcements and more. Very cool if you ask me.


Ripple9 is a free service that broadens your fan base by delivering your music, pictures and reminders of your upcoming gigs directly into the mobile phones of your fans.

Ripple9 allows you to promote your music in a new way by putting your music where it should be, in the hands of your fans.

Mobile flyer - Deliver a text message “mobile-flyer” leading your fans to band info, gig alerts, ring tones, wall paper, & more...

Gig alerts - Fans receive a text message automatically reminding them to show up to your next gig. They'll forward along to their friends!

Mobile posts - You and your fans post pictures & videos from their mobile phones to a "mobile billboard" on your MySpace page and web site.

Friends - Grow your fan list while you're on the road! Get fans to join your fan list via text messaging. Reach fans on mobile, IM, and email in a single blast!

So is there a catch? Probably some advertising for the company in there, but I don't know myself. If anyone out there gives it a try, let us know in the comments section how it works for you.
