MP3.com ( http://www.mp3.com ), Inc., the Internet's premiere online digital music destination, and Listen.com ( http://www.listen.com ), the Internet's directory of downloadable music, announced they are working together to broaden the scope of online exposure for MP3.com artists. The new relationship includes cross-promotional efforts to increase traffic between these two music sites and provides consumers an additional editorial viewpoint on MP3.com's extensive array of music.
MP3.com's artists are now included in Listen.com's music directory. Listen.com editors will expand the integration of MP3.com artists into the directory's genre-tree of 600 musical styles. From this location, visitors can preview a "Low-Fi" quality audio clip of the artist's tracks and access MP3.com to immediately listen to "Hi-Fi" quality clips or download songs. Direct links to MP3.com's artist pages will also be established on Listen.com's syndication partner sites, including Excite, Lycos, shockwave.com and Snap.com. MP3.com and Listen.com will also collaborate on promotional activities.
