How To Make The Freemium World Pay - hypebot

I saw a great tweet recently from a satirical Twitter account which said: “Welcome to the age where it's encouraged to pay for music before it's recorded and take it for free once it's made.” This tweet inspired a “Eureka!” moment. The reason why charging for music before it is recorded on crowd-funding services, such as Kickstarter and PledgeMusic, works is because it helps to create exclusivity in an industry plagued by abundance.


Recorded music has become a commodity, and the challenge to the artist is to create uniqueness within the commoditized system in order to build a sustainable career. It’s a matter of creating value within the commodity itself, within the distribution systems, and within the positioning of your music. Selling it before it’s recorded creates value because you’re selling a promise of greatness rather than a song itself. You’re selling the feeling and emotion related to a great song. It’s the artist’s duty to fulfill that promise.

Hack Your Craft's curator insight, March 12, 2013 3:46 PM

"Along with helping artists get richer, Experiences turns BandPage into an e-commerce company that will earn a 15 percent cut of what bands earn by offering special treatment through Experiences. By definition, artists can’t sell too many of these unique opportunities. BandPage has to hope the idea of hyper-monetizing the short head rather than focusing on the long tail catches on." - Tech Crunch

 

There are only so many vip seats and backstage passes artists can give out on the road. There is only but so much they can charge. Now possibly multiply that by a decent tour (if you have the support for that), it may mean extra perdiums, but real cash flow, maybe not. I firmly agree that artist should see beyond just merchandise sales, but there has to be a more profitable means to stay afloat, if not fly than selling chunks of your ass cheek.
