Online Music Streaming Services

By 2013, on-demand music streaming services has taken down online music stores as the main revenue stream of digital music.

In March 2022, according to IFPI global music report, the wholesale revenue in the industry had increased over the past 20 years.

With paid music streaming services accounting for $12.3 billion in revenue and ad-supported streaming for $4.6 billion.

It is intriguing to note that music streaming revenues had more than doubled since 2017, and the estimated number of users of paid services exceeded 523 million.

But often these streaming platforms face criticisms over the royalty amount they share with the artists. They are targeted for not fairly compensating original musicians and songwriters.

Selling Music Online

Well if someone is a songwriter, singer, or composer and wants to publish their music on popular streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music etc. They either need to be signed up with a record label or collaborate with a music distributor.

New artists cannot simply upload music content to popular digital music stores by themselves. But with the help of online distributors like the SelfDistro, they can release and sell music to leading streaming services and other top digital stores of their choice.

How SelfDistro Works?

Once a new artist signs up on SelfDistro and the artist needs to select pricing plans based on the budget. It offers unique per-track or pay-as-you-go pricing.

After that, the artist will upload the music file and add track information. Then, SelfDistro sends the artist’s new release file in high-quality digital format (.wav, 44.1 kHz 16 bits stereo or .flac) to hundreds of digital music stores and streaming services in under 24-72 hours.

Now, every time your music streams or download worldwide, you will receive earnings, and the money goes directly into your SelfDistro account.

Also, the SelfDistro team takes care of the reporting, sales collections and any administrative hassle. Moreover, they pay the artist’s share of the money received from ad revenues.
