A new way for musicians to get heard...

First things 1st, I hope it is OK to post this here. Mods please don't Ban me feel free to remove.

I trust you're good and having a good holiday season.

I just finished creating a website that I believe will help musicians build a good audience and sell their music. You can sell your music there and the money goes directly to your paypal account just like on Bandcamp.

Unlike Traxsource, Beatport, iTunes etc... where you don't even know who bought your music, they even get to keep the emails to promote their stuff.

Everyone who buys your music from my site automatically becomes your fan and even if you get a lot of fans it's possible to send all of them a message at once. You can also add them as a friend and keep in touch.

You also have the ability to create special discount coupons. You can also create free downloads if you want to or even just for listening purposes and a whole lot more...

Let me know what you think guys because for me all the platforms I use such as soundcloud, facebook, twitter do allow me to create a fan base but the only problem is that they make sure I can't message everyone at once and something that we regard as promotions is always spam to them. Not to say don't use them or they're not good, they do have their advantages.

Hope you like the idea and you'll use the site. I'm also adding more musicians and labels and I hope everything goes well.

Here's an example of a musician page:

Re: A new way for musicians to get heard...

Cool, I've had quick look and already I have a question, if I were to open an account, in which category would the music I make, mostly Industrial and noise go?

It seemed to be too biased towards standard electronic music genre.

But I'll have a deeper look

Re: A new way for musicians to get heard...

I totally agree, but I'm not biased

Those are the genres I had in mind when creating the site. I welcome any kind of music. Just tell me what genre you want to add and I'll add it. Many Thnx

Re: A new way for musicians to get heard...

Really good idea actually! The problem with people using mainly Facebook or Twitter to build their fanbase, is that if those sites go away, then you have no way to keep up with your people. Granted this is potentially in a similar situation, but at least you can get information on people buying your music which is important. Good job mate!

Re: A new way for musicians to get heard...

Is it as open to amateurs as soundcloud is? My personal gripe with things like Bandcamp is that it's more directed towards finished projects ready for purchase while Soundcloud is more open in that I use it as a sort of progression journal.

The site is really flexible. You can upload music for people to just listen, download free or buy, it's totally up to you. I believe my site is also amateur friendly.

Re: A new way for musicians to get heard...

Thnx mtinezz

Honestly, everything didn't go as planned but now I implemented plan B which is working really good to go back to plan A by end of February. I can't complain much because I just deleted 67 spam accounts and 100+ spam blogs today, so people are using the site but for the wrong reasons.

What I'm saying is that, smart marketers are seeing the power of the site that I so wish all musicians could see. Which most of them don't because they create accounts and never come back.

I also have a couple of record labels who will be selling their releases there as well, that should encourage independent musicians to do the same.

Thnx for asking how it's going, I don't want to bore you with the details but I'm happy with the progress so far
