What's the point?
More people than ever are listening to music with the growth of the internet. But, digital music (as mp3s) is not something that most people value much. Merge.fm is an online platform to instead offer your fans access to ongoing internet events. The versioning platform makes it painless to offer all kinds of internet events that are worth the ticket price for your fans. Then you can interact with your fans as much or as little as you want. Unlike selling mp3s where the massive scale of the internet is a weakness, this creates an experience where the more sharing the better it gets. Your fans will love being there when the magic happens. Check out the examples here.
What's in it for you?
When your fans buy access, we share the revenue with you. This keeps our lights on and keeps merge.fm free for musicians. We believe artists deserve as much as possible, so artists keep 85% after transaction fees. Here are some examples of the breakdown:
