Musimetric - Labels Musimetric - Labels Presentation Transcript

    • If you own or work for a record label, we think you might be interested in our application…
    • We think it could help you think differently about how you invest in talent…
    • We all know labels tend to invest lots of $ in a small number of bands….
    • But what we don’t really like to admit to, is they do so with next to no objective way of measuring how successful those bands might be…
    • We love the band, everyone loves the band! We’ve seen gigs full of fans, we know they’ve sold some records….
    • But imagine if historical performance information about a band you were interested in signing was available…
    • Imagine if you could see the history of plays on MySpace , Last.fm , facebook….
    • We think that would be useful information to have before you signed the band…
    • We think it might, at the very least, act as a sense check before people wrote the cheque…
    • But what would happen if you could see much, much more than this…
    • What if you the number of emails they were sending, and more importantly, the bounce and unsubscribe rate was there…
    • (less than 2% of email addresses on most bands mailing lists are real, active fans)
    • What if you could see the number of realtones they sold, the number of t-shirts, the number of files being traded on the p2p networks….
    • If you had that information that would be even more useful right?
  • musimetrics
    • We call it musimetrics.
    • You might think of it as the Bloomberg of the music industry…
    • Yeah ok. So its not very pretty .
    • But the basics are there…
    • A system which can take daily information from a range of different music related websites and build a real picture of a bands performance…
    • As easy to use as google analytics, rating each band 0-30…..
    • 0 they shouldn’t give up their day job , 30 you should get your cheque book out…
    • If you are a label you can check the hype around a hot band…
    • If you are a promoter, you can find out how many fans the support act really has….
    • As a merchandiser you can offer deals to bands way before they asked for their $250k advance…
    • So how does it work ….
    • (if you have time watching this video about the semantic web is useful)
    • When a person applies for credit, an agency looks at information about them…
    • Their previous credit history, where they vote, whether they paid back previous loans on time, and gives them a credit score …
    • A judgement is made about how likely it is they will repay the money by looking objectively at information about them...
    • This is what the musimetrics system does for bands.
    • Every day it requests data from a range of different websites - Myspace, Facebook, Last.fm….
    • And tells the user how likely it is, a particular band will be successful .
    • This has never been done before in music - in sports, finance, politics – yes - but never in music.
    • A global, automated, real time database which every sector of the music industry and beyond could use.
    • In the US, Billy Beane took a failing baseball club to the playoffs 2 years running using this thinking
    • (they wrote a book about him).
    • Doctors took the same approach at Chicago Hope to save the lives of thousands of heart attack victims
    • (they wrote a book about them).
    • Investment funds use this thinking every day to help them decide which companies to invest in
    • (they wrote a book about them as well).
    • For a record label it is a no brainer. Musimetrics represents the chance to spread the risk of their investment and reinvent their business model…
    • If you’re a label – get in touch.
    • We’re looking for partners.
