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

Local ISRC Agencies

We have had a lot of artists ask us where they can get their ISRC codes from. 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.

RoyaltyShare Leaves Digital Music Distribution. RouteNote Offers RoyaltyShare Customers a Discount!

It has been reported over at PaidContent that RoyaltyShare is going to be exiting the digital distribution market. When it introduced its digital-distribution service last January, RoyaltyShare said it would provide a web-based platform for record labels and niche distributors to interact directly with digital retailers, bypassing the need to go through large digital aggregators such The Orchard. The company also said digital distribution would compliment its royalty service, which helps entertainment companies calculate royalties from digital sales.

Since this has happened to RoyaltyShare we would like to offer a hand to RoyaltyShare members who want to continue to digital distribute their music. If you signup to RouteNote and then contact us saying that you are from RoyaltyShare and your account name over there, then we will increase your percentage up from 90% to 95% of all sales.

Get My Music onto iTunes

For a long time artists have been finding difficult to get their music on iTunes and other digital music stores. Here at RouteNote we are trying to make it easier than ever before for unsigned and independent artists to get their music onto these stores and more. At RouteNote we currently offer artists to get their music onto iTunes and other stores completely for free with no upfront fees. RouteNote is also going to bring on a lot more partners in the near future which will make our service a lot more appealing than all ours in the market.

Stay tuned for more big news about partnerships and offers coming soon.

RouteNote and Our Progressions

Here are RouteNote we have been very open about our statistics and offering from the beginning. Today I just wanted to run through how RouteNote is progressing and what you can expect for the future moving forward.

RouteNote Growth:

As most startups in the current economic climate RouteNote is no different, we have a very limited advertising and marketing budget which of course means growth doesnt have the possibilities as it would otherwise. However, we have been seeing an increase in traffic every month which is quite positive. I think this increase in traffic has a lot to do with the great press we have been receiving from all over the web (Rev2, Techcrunch UK, CNet, and more).

Additionally, we have been keeping track of how long it has taken RouteNote to reach goals of 1000 track intervals. It took RouteNote 199 days to reach 1000 tracks online, but the next 1000 tracks only took 109 days, and this last 1000 tracks which now brings us to over 3000 tracks online took 76 days to reach. The site is rising and our service is increase and becoming more efficient everyday.

Partners:

RouteNote has been developing new partnerships will all different types of companies in a variety of areas. Here at RouteNote we believe that diversity in digital music distribution is key. With download stores there are really only three main players at the moment, iTunes, eMusic and Amazon, and RouteNote has partnership argeements with all of these stores. Soon we will be adding more partnerships to help our musician push their music across the entire internet with the aim of allowing them to reach the mass market, while at the same time offering them top royalty and revenue schemes that are the best in the industry. Watch out for RouteNote partnering with some of the biggest growing music services on the web.

New Features Coming Soon:

Here at RouteNote we launched in the same way as many other startups. First you have private beta, then beta, then launch the site with a full service. Here at RouteNote we followed the same kind of structure but for us the beta tag is only there because we were yet to release our desktop upload tool. This tool and the beta tag should be completed in the coming months. Additionally, we are looking to add more services in our tools section which aims to help artists find great deals and provide them with the right tools to help self-promotion.

Overall:

RouteNote is still growing at a steady pace and we are aiming over this time to increase our offering as much as possible. As a RouteNote user you will see added partners in terms of stores, mobile, streaming, licensing and others, as well as a much more rounded product offering.
