Win A Year’s Free Distribution With RouteNote

RouteNoteIn order to encourage people to get their music online with us, and introduce new potential customers to our service, we thought we’d run a little competition. If you’re a solo musician or you’re in a band that has new music that needs to get out there and selling, all you need to do is add a comment to this blog post with the name of the band or artist and a link to the track that you think is their (or your) best. We’ll keep entries open until the 14th of December, and then we’ll judge all the tracks that have been entered. The top 3 according to our judges will be given completely free distribution to all of our partners stores during 2010 on any new releases they upload to RouteNote. No fees, no subscriptions, no back end cut, no strings – just access to our service completely free until 2011. The top 5 will get a feature and review on our blog, and we’re promoting this competition in collaboration with www.music-news.com, so you can expect to get their attention too. This competition is open only to artists and bands and music not already signed up to RouteNote.

Thanks, and good luck!

New Featured Artists Section on the RouteNote Blog

Here at RouteNote Blog we have recently made a lot of changes in terms of design (which I think looks better than before!) and I just want to let everyone know about the new music player we have added in our sidebar.  The widget is powered by Soundcloud and looks like this:

We have decided to add featured artists to our sidebar every month to promote some of the great artists using RouteNote. As you can see from the player it plays full tracks and also provides and option for listeners to purchase the tracks via iTunes. Additionally, the player keeps tracks of how many plays that track has received so artists can tell if there receiving some extra exposure. We will be adding 5 tracks a month to the featured artists section and will write a quick preview post here in the blog. If you are interested in being a featured artist then please get in touch and let us know which song you have in mind and why you should be a featured artist.

RouteNote user statistics get a makeover!

At RouteNote we are constantly thinking up new ways to improve the site for our clients and partners. The latest launch has been a makeover of the user statistics presentation that enables both artist and label to view their sales and downloads with ease. Clear, dynamic, graphs and drop down selectors make it easy to isolate the statistics of a track, an album or even an entire artist’s catalogue.

Some key features:

  • Label level information – record labels are now presented with total earnings over all artists in a summary and monthly breakdown.
  • Top ten tracks – record labels and artists are now provided with a top ten of their uploaded tracks.
  • Artist breakdown – in addition to our previous album/track breakdown we have updated an artist breakdown, which should allow record labels to keep track of their artists individually.
  • Territory download percentage – this percentage pie charts shows the user in which territories their label/artists/albums/tracks are selling. This will be useful for targeting your market and optimising your promotion strategy.
  • Retail store downloads – this percentage pie chart compares the ratio between sales in each digital store.

Please take the time to asses the new changes and all feedback, good or bad (not too bad or you’ll make us cry), is welcome!

Thanks to all clients for your constant support, happy selling!

Regards,

The RouteNote Team

If you are based in the UK RouteNote can provide you free of charge with an ISRC code, however if you are based in any other country you need to contact the organisation in your country who controls the release of ISRC codes. For most of these countries including the UK ISRC codes are free, so just choose the contact from the complete list below.
