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.

Foursquare, Deezer innovating to drive user engagement

Foursquare, Deezer innovating to drive user engagement | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

LIVE FROM MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS: The CEOs of Foursquare and Deezer described how they are innovating to drive user engagement in today's keynote at Congress....

 

CEO of music service Deezer, Axel Dauchez, said that innovation is “absolutely critical” but knowing where to focus this innovation is key to driving engagement.

Deezer is aiming to make music a “more intense part of users identity”, according to Dauchez, by providing the means for active music discovery and making the relationship between users and artists more tangible by providing exclusive content.

Integrating the live music experience into the service is also an important element that drives user engagement. “We need to provide a better experience of the gig itself,” Dauchez said.

Although taking down barriers to music discovery is important, Dauchez there is also scope to put in some restrictions to drive user engagement. For example, if a band is making an album, they can make some of music available for a short period of time, which drives a significant rise in user engagement.

It costs something like $50,000 to have a celebrity DJ appear at an event — even Paulie D. from The Jersey Shore reportedly commands those sort of rates level. Clearly, those of us who are not Paris Hilton can’t afford to book these people for our house parties. Enter the new Aoki’s House Spotify app, which launched on Thursday afternoon. To use it, you first choose which DJs you’d like to “appear” at your parties. Current options include Steve Aoki, Autoerotique, Tommy Trash, Nervo, Dillon Francis, Peace Treaty, Infected Mushroom, Azari & III, and Booka Shade.
