ZURICH, Sept. 14, 2015 / iMusician launches new platform guaranteeing musicians more freedom
iMusician launches it new platform with more options, simpler pricing, a better meta-data collecting system, live support chat in three languages and increased flexibility to fit the evolution of the music market for independent musicians and labels.
As the CEO and co-founder Shigs Amemiya explains, “Only 10 years ago, 90% of musicians didn’t have access to the music market. If you didn’t have a label, you couldn’t get in. Today, the market has evolved and musicians need more than just “digital distribution”. They need access to all of the “value chains” (or “income chains”) involving their music and where access is still complicated and limited. The fact is, all of these value chains use the same basic data-set – what we call meta-data – that is why the new platform has been designed to optimise the collection and management of this data.”
Faster, friendlier and smoother
The new user-friendly dashboard allows musicians and labels to drag and drop their audio and artwork and edit releases while uploading. All together it means no more waiting time.
From one to 250 shops, 0 to 30% commission, flat rate or pay per release, there is a plan for everyone. Plus, ISRC and barcodes are now free.
Live chat support in English, French and German
Live chat support is now available on the iMusician website which makes the communication between artists and the international support team – composed of native speakers in English, German and French even faster.
Optimised metadata structure
The new iMusician platform focuses on the accurate management of meta-data so musicians don’t lose any of their copyright revenue.
Monthly sales reports and pay-outs
The Daily Trend Charts bring yesterday’s sales trends so musicians can plan their marketing activities better and get paid every month.
