How To Distribute and Sell Your Music Online: A Guide for Independent Musicians | Online Business Models |
Robin Good's insight:

Budi Voogt has recently updated his excellent musician's indie guide to digital distribution for independent musicians containing lots of useful information and good advice.

He covers most everything you need to know, from which are stores that matter to the types of payment deals available and their pros and cons as well as the different distributors options you have and their contract terms.

My comment: If you are an independent musician looking to better understand what options you have available to sell and distribute your music online, check this guide out.

Informative. Resourceful. Recommended. 8/10

This is not a "free" business model generator, it is a software program built on the "free information" business model.  


I looked through this and there is some solid information even if you don't purchase this software.  The 78 page info graphic style explanation does an excellent job of talking about offering "free" and monetizing a portion of your information.  


Play around with it and let me know what you think.

Getting it together! Lets make some dough!

Paul P Roberts's curator insight, October 11, 2013 3:44 PM

As someone that does a lot of business planning this tool looks very interesting. It's simple design output also makes me wonder whether this could be adapted in the market research market, a one page insight delivery might inspire more detailed and focussed work.

A significant percentage of working-age Mexicans (PEA: economically active population) have no chance of finding a job as an employee, so it needs to develop the ability to use tools for self-employed or start a business. A useful tool is the Business Model Canvas, which allows a review sheet nine key concepts that has any business, and develop knowledge and actions that increase the likelihood that the company move forward.

Un porcentaje importante de los mexicanos en edad de trabajar (PEA: Población Económicamente Activa) no tendrá oportunidad de encontrar un trabajo como empleado, por lo que necesita desarrollar la habilidad de utilizar herramientas para auto-emplearse o para iniciar un negocio propio. Una herramienta útil es el Model Business Canvas, que nos permite en una hoja repasar nueve conceptos clave que tiene cualquier negocio, y desarrollar conocimientos y acciones que incrementan la probabilidad de que la empresa siga adelante.
