Only a few days away until Thanksgiving (for some of us that is). As of today, we will no longer be servicing iTunes Weekly Trending Reports via e-mail. At the moment, we are working on something much better. A fresh Online Trending System. This enables you to view your iTunes Weekly Trending Reports on-site (similiar to how you view your sales). The iTunes Weekly Trending System is only available to VIP customers only. You can become a VIP member today for just $12.95 per month and gain access to all sorts of digital services and mobile stores including Amazon, Rhapsody, eMusic, AT&T, Playstation 3, and more!
Q: So what are a few things you SHOULD know about iTunes Weekly Trending Reports?
1: iTunes Weekly Trending Reports ARE NOT 100% accurate data. DO NOT use them as sales data. iTunes Financial Reports received every month are 100% accurate.
2: iTunes Weekly Trending Reports are used for projection purposes of where your sales could be. Its simply an indication to see what areas you should focus on for marketing and promotions.
3: With the launch of the new Trending System, you are able to view a summarized version of your iTunes Weekly Trending Reports on-site for FREE as a VIP customer. You can request a detailed version (which includes ZIP codes, etc.) for $2 per report.
We’re moving at lightning speed, working on new features and enhancing our digital distribution and social platforms. As always, please post your comments here about what you think about our services, features, and updates.
I hope you guys are enjoying a great weekend. Great new developments are coming in the world of WaTunes. For WaTunes artists and labels, as you can see, we’ve updated your dashboard a bit to make things more simple by adding two new menus: My Albums, and My Sales.
My Albums: This menu will enable you to upload your content for submission to iTunes and for VIP customers iTunes and our full fleet of digital services and mobile stores. If you have any questions on how to use the My Albums feature, please contact us.
My Sales: This menu will enable you to easily view your sales online from iTunes (other store services are currently in testing).
I hope you guys enjoy these great new features and please let us know if you have any other questions regarding the service.
[WaTunes] – Google offering music to the masses via iLike, more options for the WaTunes VIP service!
Exciting times are ahead as we move forward to make WaTunes a unique experience for everyone. I’ve yet to inform you guys of another great development. Last week Google rolled out an exciting new feature that makes it easier for music fans to find, listen to, and buy music online. Google is introducing millions of music fans to licensed content by partnering with iLike, iMeem, Lala, and Rhapsody.
This seamless integration creates a better search experience on Google by giving users a new, easy and deeper connection to the great music content. If you type in a music related search – artist name, song or album title – Google will show music-related search results, including audio samples.
Google splits search results between iLike and Lala. iLike, which was recently acquired by MySpace, uses MediaNet, one of our digital store partners to power its MP3 store. We distribute to MediaNet for VIP customers as apart of our $12.95 per month deal.
So what are you waiting for? Upgrade your account to VIP and get the real experience of the WaTunes digital distribution program today!
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!
