iLike today launched an impressive suite of  free digital music marketing  tools including integration with Twitter, YouTube, MySpace and Ticketmaster, as well as, a system to easily create and distribute custom artist iPhone apps. The company has also added a Premium Artists Stats service offering reports on fan interactions across their syndication network.

Some of these digital tools can be found elsewhere, but iLike is offering them in a free, integrated and easy to use package which when combined with its existing iGoogle, Facebook, hi5, Bebo and Orkut apps, creates a must-use toolbox for any indie musician or label. New features include:

  • iPhone Apps: Quickly create and distribute their own iPhone app with concert dates, photos, blogs, bulletins, and videos. The self-service system allows artists to customize the look of their app and submit it to the iTunes App Store. (Watch a demo)
  • Twitter: Link and artist’s iLike and Twitter accounts adding “tweets” to the iLike music feed and profile as well as their Facebook page; and when a new song, video, or concert listing is posted, iLike will notify fans via Twitter.
  • YouTube: Sync an artist’s YouTube channel and iLike account. Every video posted to iLike can automatically be posted to a YouTube channel, and vice versa.
  • MySpace: Enhance the concert listings on MySpace pages via a widget that adds buy inks and allows fans to “RSVP” and see who else is going. Artists can also configure the iLike Artist Dashboard so that any blog, bulletin, or video posted on iLike is also added to MySpace.
  • Facebook Pages “Music” Tab: Add the music tab to artist pages on Facebook. iLike’s Music tab features the artist’s songs, concerts, videos, bulletins, blogs, and tweets.
  • Ticketmaster: Songs, photos, and videos posted to the iLike Dashboard will also appear on the artist’s page on Ticketmaster.
  • Artist Websites: The iLike Artist Dashboard now allows artists to manage the content on their own official websites via embeddable javaScript widgets.
