Free indie music streamer Earbits is on the midst of a major site overhaul and announced a new partnership with Topspin. Now within the Earbits dashboard artists can add selected Topspin merchandise and dynamically display how many items are for sale with a link to browse merchandise. Several artists, like Catle Cruz (image to left) have already set up their Earbits/Topspin storefronts.
To celebrate, Topspin is giving Earbits artists one month of their premium service free (use code: EARBITS).
Part of the Earbits business model is promoted spins, which for a small investment place d.i.y. artists music in the Earbits stream alongside similar but more established bands. As an example Earbits CEO Joey Flores offered Daniel Whittington. "He turned $58 in Earbits airtime into $147 in name-your-price digital downloads on Bandcamp," according to Flores.
