Streaming vs Downloading Music

Written by Benjamin on . Posted in Digital Distribution, Digital Distribution Home, News

Hello the digital musicians,

How the music is consuming today? Big question, isn’t it?

Using a study about the artists/labels distributed by Wiseband extract from the dissertation The new music economy (David Raimbaud, 2014), I am going to give you answers.

Reminder: for about 6 years, it seems that a new consumption model is looking to force slowly. It is not about downloading music but to listen to it via the streaming audio without limitations, available on several medias (computers, smartphones, tablets). From the sales report on april 2014, let’s see which of the streaming or the downloading influences most your digital incomes.

It turns out that the streaming audio is the dominant consumption pattern. It represents almost 60% of the total revenues. The incomes of the artists and labels distributed by Wiseband confirm the actual trend observed with both IFPI (at the world level) and SNEP (at the national level) that the access is preferred over the property in the way of listening to music.

 So, do not neglect the platforms of streaming when you select the digital platforms on which your music will appear. 

On which platform can we distribute you?

Streaming : Deezer, Spotify, Youtube, Rhapsody, Qriocity, Simfy, Rara and eMusic

Download : iTunes, Amazon, 7Digital and Starzik

Hybrid plateforms (Streaming & Download) : OVI Nokia, Google Play and Qobuz

Platform of musical recognition : Shazam

Open an Artist account or a Pro / Label account from now on and get one digital distribution for free to distribute an album or a single on the platforms.

If you already have an account, please visit the page “Products” > “Digital Distribution” of your Wiseband account to start the single/album distribution process.

See you soon,

Digital Royalties : Where do they come from ?

Written by David on . Posted in Artists, Digital Distribution Home, News, WB Services Help

Dear digital musicians, 

Before starting a digital distribution, you’re always asking yourself : “On which music platforms my song will be the most listened ?”, or not ?

For the first time, you’ll have an idea about your question. It’s important to notice that, this article is an extract from my work The New Music Economy (David Raimbaud, 2014) and deals with Artists and Labels distributed by Wiseband. It doesn’t give informations about tarification policy of platforms or give any conclusions about wages of independent Artists or Labels. It helps you to understand the distribution of artists’ royalties distributed by Wiseband. 

The goal is to give you a screenshot of the artists’ revenue structure from Wiseband.

« Others » are : Google Play, Qobuz, Virgin Mega, Qriocity (SMU), Rhapsody, eMusic, 7Digital, Starzik, OVI Nokia, Rara and Simfy.

What we learn is that the majority of royalties are coming from a minority of platforms. Indeed, iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and Youtube represent 86% of Royalties. If we add Amazon, those five platforms concentrate 94% of total Royalties.

This study shows us the oligopolistic part of the market where a few number of platforms concentrate the major revenues of the industry. The “Others” platforms represent only 6% of total Royalties. 

Hope that this chart will help you to understand your future royalties with Wiseband.

See you soon,

David.R
