  • 5. For this to work, every step in the value chain must win People w/ mobile devices ~ ¼ of the World population Music app developers 42,500 music apps in App Store. Grossing $375m in 2013 (excluding In-app purchases). “The Industry” Digital music stores, labels, artists, managers, production, distribution etc. It must be easy & cost-effective to consume music on a mobile device. Think about the whole journey – including search. App developers are responsible for Intelligently monetising their apps so that every step below them in the Value chain can win big.
  • 6. Think inside apps, and outside apps. 25 million searches for music are made on Google per month. ~25% of these are made from a Mobile device. No one is capitalising on this opportunity.
