The Official Community Corporation (officialCOMMUNITY) is a leader in creating commercialized online communities for established recording artists. Using proprietary technology we developed and own, we create artist-branded communities that go above and beyond your typical artist website or online store.
Based in Toronto, Canada, officialCOMMUNITY was incorporated in 2001 and has spent the past eight years producing meaningful results for the artists we work with. Within the first six months of officialCOMMUNITY's involvement with a website, traffic and mailing list numbers typically jump by more than a 100 percent. We commercialize communities within weeks of taking over an artist's website, generally starting by offering 100 percent of the "best seats" to live performances.
We achieve these types of results by turning an artist's official website from just a communication tool or a marketing expense to a profitable venture that supports all areas of the artist's core business of recording and touring. We give the artist's audience what they want by providing them with regular news updates, full and exclusive product lines, ticket presales, and a site with unique and user-generated content, all with an unparalleled community atmosphere.
officialCOMMUNITY is more than just another distribution channel for an artist's existing business. Our approach goes beyond supporting the expected commercial transactions by exploring new commercial opportunities such as digital downloads and website subscriptions. We deliver a fully branded online store, housed within the artist's main domain, that allows consumers to make purchases in one of four currencies (USD, CAD, GBP, EUR). We pride ourselves on our fast, friendly customer service and we believe that our attentive attitude is what sets us apart.
officialCOMMUNITY puts artists in business for themselves by supporting their offline business, enabling access to their audience, and conducting all service at lower than industry rates, while providing high-touch artist-branded customer service.
