First off, Happy Halloween to some of you and I hope you guys are enjoying your holidays. Today we have some very great new updates for WaTunes. As you guys know the VIP service has been changed to a monthly subscription service of $12.95 per month. Now I’ve been getting e-mails from current VIP members on whether or not they have to pay this new monthly fee. The answer is: Nope. If you are a currently active VIP customer, you do not have to pay the newly $12.95 per month and that your yearly subscription fee will be with you until you decide to cancel.
So how do I become a VIP?
Simple. Log in to your WaTunes account, click on ‘Add-Ons’ and purchase the VIP service. The moment you subscribe, we then check your purchase and your WaTunes account and any content you’ve delivered to us. Afterwards, your contents will automatically be delivered to the other digital services. No more waiting, no more hassles! A completely new and transparent service with the cheapest limitations. Now for just $12.95 per month, get your music into the world’s biggest digital stores, mobile stores, and gaming consoles, keep 100% of your royalties, and more!

For those who has been itching to get your music on AmazonMP3, not only have your prayers been answered, but it is official that WaTunes has partnered with Amazon to offer you Amazon On-Demand! With Amazon On-Demand, you’ll be able to sell physical CDs on the Amazon store as well as digital downloads on AmazonMP3. Now you can take control of your complete music products and bring them into the physical CD world. Even though CD sales are declining, they are still a huge by product of your sales. We highly recommend that you go for Amazon On-Demand if you are selling a full-length (10 tracks or more) album.
Q: So what does this mean for VIP customers?
As a VIP customer, you’ll be able to OPT-IN into Amazon On-Demand + AmazonMP3 entirely free as apart of your $29.95 yearly fee. As always, you’ll be entitled to earn 100% of your royalties (about 40% paid out to every artist through Amazon On-Demand). If you’re a VIP customer and you are selling only singles, you can still OPT-IN into the AmazonMP3 store for digital downloads.
Q: So what does this mean for Free customers?
As a Free customer, you now have the option to OPT-IN into the Amazon On-Demand + AmazonMP3 service for $10 per album. Normally, you are able to sell your music entirely free into iTunes, eMusic, and ShockHound. Now, you’ll be able to optimize your music into physical CDs and sell them on Amazon at the lowest cost possible with no annual fees. As always, you’ll be entitled to earn 100% of your royalties (about 40% paid out to every artist through Amazon On-Demand). If you only want to OPT-IN into AmazonMP3 you can still do so for $10 per album (including singles).
The wait is now over! WaTunes VIP service is fully launched. If you are a VIP customer, your contents are now being processed to go into every store that is covered with the VIP service. Please note that these stores may take up to 4-6 weeks before you see your music available at these music store services. So what are you waiting for? Upgrade your account to VIP and gain entry to more music stores today!
I am pleased to announce that we are able to begin our first roll outs of the WaTunes VIP services. As of today, we have launched the new Music Video Distribution service. Though this service is currently in BETA, now VIP customers will have the ability to deliver unlimited Music Videos whenever they want.
So What Are Some Music Video Stores?
Besides now being able to deliver your music videos on iTunes, we’ve also establish a deal to deliver your Music Videos to mobile services including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and the new VidZone music video streaming service available on the Sony Playstation 3 console. Below is an E3 Trailer of what the VidZone service can provide for Playstation 3 consoles. Currently this service is only available in Europe. Look forward to this service being made available in the Americas soon…
How Do I Get Started?
If you’re a VIP customer, you can get started uploading Music Videos sending an e-mail to our Content Team and request for our Delivery Specifications for Music Video Distribution. Afterwards, we’ll first analyze your account and confirm your VIP Membership, then you can prepare your Music Videos and send them to us for delivery.
As time progress and we’re closing in on the launch of WaTunes New Experience, I was very excited to see that we have been picked up by VUE Weekly! Special thanks to Steven Sandor for writing a very compelling article about the relevance of the digital music industry and showing just how much we’ve stated the game with revolutionary formula.
With the power to sell your music on iTunes entirely free without upfront cost or giving up your royalties, how can you lose? You now have the power to re-invest money you would of spent towards paying per albums and put it towards your own promotion and even your own music expansion through WaTunes VIP services. So, without delay, check out this really cool article from VUE Weekly!
With the ever-changing internet, the digital music industry has enabled almost anyone to gain entry to digital retailers including iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, and Amazon. Today, thousands of digital distributors have distribute and delivered content to the masses on the behalf of their artists & labels. Most distributors requires a certain percentage from the royalties of their contents, while some requires an upfront cost, or both. As you guys know, here at WaTunes, artists & labels are given the power to sell their music on iTunes, eMusic, and ShockHound entirely free and they are able to receive 100% of the royalties!
But, what if you want to expand to more stores? What if you want something more than iTunes? In this day and age, there are many digital distributors who have a large amount of store offerings to expand your music availability. However, they require a certain percentage of your sales for the distribution cost. My philosophy is that should an artist wish to gain entry to more stores, create a cost effective way of providing them that option. This is why we’ve introduce the premium VIP service. For just $29.95 a year, artists & labels will not only be able to gain entry to more music store services, but also the top mobile markets and gaming markets as well. Expansion is key and by providing this low cost solution to expand your music, you’ll be able to re-invest your sales into even greater availability through WaTunes.
If you would like to request a copy of our full list of music store services, please feel free to contact us and I’ll personally e-mail you our PDF of our store offerings and listings. 🙂
Of course, the VIP service is optional. Therefore, as a free user, enjoy the fruits of getting your music on the iTunes Store without restrictions, without any upfront cost, and without any royalties taken from the sales of your music.
