There are 100,000 records released on the Spotifies of this world every single day. Unfortunately, the vast majority of them will not find enough listeners to produce a feasible income for the artist.
It’s basically broken too, at least for people who post. Did you know Instagram’s algorithm is literally designed to show your posts to less than 10% of your followers, on average?
MusicArt is the music site that’s both a brand-new marketing tool and an income generating tool for musicians. Our platform uses an innovative “coupon” system that allows musicians to “give away” as many “copies” of their records as they like.
Releasing music like this versus just making your songs randomly available to be streamed instantly by anyone turns your singles into desirable promo copies. That’s the marketing part. Here’s where the revenue kicks in: those same “promo records” can later be bought and sold, which will earn you, the artist, royalties every time that record changes hands, even though they were originally given out as free promo copies.
If a musician is able to get a thousand of their fans to stream on Spotify, they may make about $4. That’s it. On MusicArt, a musician can release, say, 100 NFT editions of that same music, and price those NFTs at $4 each. If you have 100 enthusiastic fans, you’d make $400 from that release… and the whole process would only cost you $19.90
1000 Streams = $4*
100 NFT Sales = $400**
You can decide to produce super-exclusive “blockchain-only” releases or opt for blockchain “release windows.”
Here’s how release windows work: Imagine selling 1,000 music editions on MusicArt, during a release window and at a price and royalty that you determine. Once that exclusive release window closes, you can then distribute the same music across all other platforms, like Spotify. Or, simply use MusicArt to produce promotional NFT copies prior to release.
Getting on the platform is a straightforward process and you don’t need crypto to start. And, remember, with MusicArt, there is no filter, gatekeeper, or judge keeping your music from anyone. As long as you have the rights to your music, and the time and drive to engage with new and innovative marketing tools, you will find a welcoming home on MusicArt.
