OurStage Launches Unique Revenue Sharing Program For Musicians

Ourstage_logo_dotcomFA_RGB1Music discovery and
social platform OurStage.com has announced OurStage Pro, a new
membership service that pays artists for song spins through a rather unique
revenue sharing program.
 Pro allows artists to get paid when fans listen to their music on OurStage.com,
on their own site, or on social media. For $2 dollars per month, artists become
OurStage Pro members and begin promoting their music on the website and through
an embeddable player provided by the company to monetize their work.

Whenever fans listen to the artist's songs on OurStage.com or
via their remote player, any song that gets played at least 90% of the way
through counts toward the artist’s overall stream count. Any artist registered
for OurStage Pro is also eligible for licensing opportunities, and fans of Pro
members can help fund those artists with a direct donation tool

Every month, a Pro artists’
qualified spin counts are compared to each other, and there is a tiered group
payout based on which artists have the most spins. The company says that the
number of spins needed to land in the four different tiers will change from
month to month, depending on how many total spins there are for all registered
OurStage Pro artists. The money for the payout comes from a pool that
includes Pro registrants’ monthly fees, so in essence, the more artists that
are signed up for OurStage Pro, the bigger the monthly payouts for artists.

“By getting people to
listen to their songs, OurStage Pro artists have the ability to get paid,” says
Jeff Kushmerek, EVP of Product. “And the more artists that sign up for
OurStage Pro, the bigger the potential payouts can be.”
