PRLog - Jun. 10, 2014 - HOUSTON -- The Music Industry has changed people are not buying physical CDs, attending very few live music events and there are very few restaurants and clubs that showcase live bands. We now have to rely on digital stores like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, GooglePlay, Slacker Radio and more other online digital stores to provide music to fill their Laptops, Netbooks, Desktops, iPhones, Android Phones, iPads, Android Tablets and iPod. Just like the way music is listened to have changed, the Independent Record Labels and Independent Recording Artists had to change the budget for releasing music to make sure there will be a return of investment somewhere in the near future.
Starting June 10, 2014 Yvonne Wilcox, Pen Name will be offering Independent Record Labels 3 types of flat rate campaigns, the $30 per month Music Distribution Campaign with unlimited music releases for one month which includes free Marketing and Promotion, the $30 per year Music Distribution Campaign with unlimited music releases ONLY on iTunes which includes a discounted Marketing and Promotion for only $10 per month or the $150 per year Music Distribution Campaign with unlimited music releases and a discounted Marketing and Promotion Campaign of $15 per month.
The Independent Record Label Campaign will also be available to Independent Recording Artists. The Independent Record Label Campaign was created to help Independent Record Labels save money on the cost of paying to release albums and singles each and every time there is a music release ready to be distributed online via digital stores. The average cost to distribute music online is about $20 per single and about $30 per album. Paying $20 per digital release do not seem like a large expense until there is a need to release more than one album or single in a week then this method tend to become quite pricey when there are 10 recording artists that are signed to an Independent Record Label the distribution costs will be $200 just for 10 singles.
One of the biggest downfalls of digital music is the way technology has made it so easy to just listen to music or download free which creates a bigger need for music to be distributed to music streaming website that pay royalties based on how many times a single is played. The streaming method will not create instant millions but it will provide a small but somewhat consistent source of income for an Independent Record Label with several Independent Recording Artists on the roster. Streaming royalties based on the last quarter report received from the Recording Artists on roster of Yvonne Wilcox Pen Name averaged about $0.10 per 15 plays.
Marketing and Promotion is an important part of digital distribution because without a good Marketing and Promotion Plan the music release will not have a chance to become popular, the popularity of the music release is really what sells the release. A music release can be a single that is not the quality but if the music release have a good Marketing and Promotion Plan, then the single can create enough publicity to sell more music download and/or more music streaming revenue.
