Is Top Spin Media Right for me?
Music Square One
Top Spin is probably the most comprehensive Music Service out there now – but is it right for you?
Some of their Features:
- Topspin Media Players – where you can stream high-quality audio and video that can be played or shared anywhere!
- Connect with your Fans via E-mail and other social networks – collect analytics and send out targeted e-mails.
- You can get Digital Distribution and sell digital or physical goods, merch, tickets, fan club memberships, and more!
- Add a custom store to almost any website platform!
- Top Spin also allows Small Record Labels to buy up spaces for their acts – but then that label has to FILL them or RESELL THEM!
There’s a host of information in their FAQ SECTION and I recommend reading them all!
The only real drawback – is do you need ALL of that in a one-stop shop place and for that price. $100/year for basic services or $500/year to the PLUS version and Topspin keeps the highest percentage of Royalties at 15%. Are you doing ENOUGH business to justify the costs?
Overall this could be the PERFECT solution for many bands, artists or even small labels – but before you go jumping into the fray – one should carefully weigh what EACH other service offers – as in this writers humble opinion – you can spread your options amongst several music services – especially FREE services that only take a percentage of what you sell – or just FREE services that allow you to have just one more way of finding you.
So I haven’t dropped my dime into the slot yet – as I’m not sure I’m ready to play their game – but they are at the TOP of the list (no pun intended) to look at very closely before I make my next move!
