Freemiums

I liked your article on this topic. I give away my single, “Song for Free,” which is about being a free song (www.ToddLerner.com). This works to my advantage in that this song and others on the album have been played on podcasts worldwide.

Have any of your projects benefited from the model of giving music away as a "freemium?"

Here's a link to a four-minute sampling of my songs played on podcasts in Japan, England, Sweden, Germany, Alaska to Hawaii, New York to Vegas, New Zealand, Poland and Jordan: www.songforfree.com/todd_played_worldwide.mp3.

The “freemium” has enabled me to increase my database of names and e-mail addresses to help me market my music to more listeners. I am beginning to take in revenue as the people in my database become paying fans.

A track that I produced, entitled “You Already Know” by David Rush of Universal Republic Records, was recently placed on MTV's Rob Dydrek's Fantasy Factory. My database of fans started purchasing the track for $1 from my Website (www.ElieMaman.com). Not only am I generating income for the track, at the same time, my fan base/database is growing as I gather all of the name/e-mail addresses. I have already sold a couple hundred downloads within only a two-week period.
