Once upon a time having a hit meant rich rewards, but that’s not the case today.
A few months back Liam Gallagher pretty much summed things up when he said ‘money’s too tight to mention, no one buys records these days’. So, if he’s feeling the pinch what chance does an independent artist have?
From the listeners’ perspective streaming is great, access to millions of tracks at the touch of a button from services they can sign up to for free – but what about you the artist?
The fact is you could have a hit with 3.2 million plays on YouTube but only end up with around $2,000 as a one-off payment – doesn’t seem right does it? Clearly, somebody is benefiting but it’s not you!
So, what’s the alternative to pay per play?
We believe the answer is Go To Hear, a new kind of music platform that will offer a different revenue model where you earn recurring monthly income from the fans you invite who become paying platform members. You won’t be restricted to just fans either as there are dozens of categories you can invite.
You’ll no longer have to worry about getting millions of streams a month to earn a living. You’ll also be able to market and sell your downloads, gig tickets and merchandise to listeners platform-wide and there will be a facility for fans to tip you if they particularly like a track.
- create links to music or articles using the share buttons in our site
- share the links and encourage others to join
- when people sign up as paying members to the live full platform you get the rewards
In addition, your fans can sign up other paying members, and you will receive a slice of that pie too. You’ll be able to run campaigns and incentivise members to promote your music using a split reward facility paid via our crypto currency Go To Hear Coin [GTHV]
If you’re just starting out and only have a few fans, Go To Hear will be building a set of tools designed to help you grow awareness around your music and increase your fan base. It’ll be a one-stop shop for everything music, downloads, streaming, promotion, band bios, a fanzine, and access to industry professionals. Compare Go To Hear to other music services.
You won’t be asked for exclusivity either, you can sign up to as many other music platforms as you’d like.
As musician members we others to get on board as early adopters of this new fairer and better paying model for independent artists.
