Since the beginning of digital music and the first time technology companies became an integral part of distributing music to music fans via the internet, the marketing, sale and use of music has dramatically changed.
Musicians looking to make a living from what they love doing have not had much of a say in what has been happening. Others are making more money from the fact that fans want to hear their music than the musicians themselves are making.
eListeningPost was founded to provide musicians an alternative to this. By charging for the value of services provided rather than taking a share of music sales. eListeningPost is a service that will genuinely help the musicians rather than exploit them. It allows artists to distribute their songs via a link on a website or by email. The file can be listened to up to five times on any one computer - meaning it can be forwarded to others and they can listen to it five times, too. There are no restrictions on the number of times a file can be forwarded.
eListeningPost's objective is to be a facilitator not a middleman by offering musicians tools and resources to promote and sell their music directly to their fans without needing to go through a middleman. eListeningPost allows the musicians to keep all the money generated directly from download sales, providing the musicians a return of as much as 94% of the sale price as well as giving them the lions share of advertising revenues associated directly to their music.
