What are the differences between Absilone and “Do It Yourself” distribution platforms?
These platforms are primarily intended for producers and artists in DIY who are not large enough (in number of titles but especially in audience size) to be able to discuss directly with aggregators .
They operate on the principle of giving customers maximum autonomy by letting them manage as many steps as possible in the online process.
So the accompaniment is minimal and all options are usually paid for.
Finally, they offer most of their services in exchange for an annual fee, a fixed amount to be paid, or a firm and irrevocable option on all or part of your assets, regardless of your future digital revenue.
If you generate less money than the cost of the service, you lose money.
– get real support throughout the online process (including metadata management and verification)
receive marketing advice and support.
Don’t pay any money to put their music online: we operate on the basis of a percentage of commission on your revenue. If you don’t generate anything, we don’t earn anything and we may have worked for nothing. But if we collaborate together it is because we want to register with you in the long term!
How much do Absilone’s services cost?
It depends on the services we are talking about.
We operate globally on the basis of a percentage of commission on revenue generated.
This applies in particular to the distribution and optional management of other rights.
